Nepal is a beautiful country filled with jaw-dropping scenery, wonderful people and incredible adventure. Dwarika`s Resort in Dhulikel is the single most spectacular place I have stayed not only in Nepal; but anywhere in the world. This 22 acre resort overlooks a stunning valley within the Himalayan Mountains. You are sure to enjoy an immersive experience at this holistic lifestyle retreat.

Location & Getting There

About 1 hour from the capital city of Kathmandu; Dwarika`s Resort is located in Dhulikel, Nepal. They offer a transportation service to and from the airport or you can arrange a car from Kathmandu for 3,500 NR (about $30 USD). During the check in process you will go over the resorts activities and a map of the property while enjoying a welcome drink. To maximize your time here; plan to leave Kathmandu around 12 PM allowing extra time for traffic and check in. This puts you in your room by 2 PM and trust me.. you`re going to want to soak up every second! For booking information and prices; check out Dwarika`s website HERE.


The Resort

We were absolutely blown away the moment we entered Dwarika’s Resort. The property is stunningly laid out over a large hillside. Amenities include numerous activities, a full spa, an infinity pool, and multiple bars and restaurants. Most activities are included with your stay so you can spend your day enjoying yoga, meditation, pottery classes, Himalayan salt rock saunas, and so much more! Please be aware that there are many steps leading you through the pathways of Dwarika`s Resort. The walks are always a scenic adventure; but if you have mobility issues this could pose a challenge.

The Rooms

But seriously.. THE ROOMS!! I wish I could have stayed forever in these picturesque villas. Envision a floor to ceiling window overlooking the jaw dropping Himalayan mountains. A heavenly king size bed as well as a daybed to enjoy the view. The bathroom boasts a big soaker tub and a luxurious rainfall shower. All amenities are taken care of from organic shampoo and sun screen to a complimentary bottle of wine. To our delight we even found hot water bottles in the bed after dinner!

Cooking Classes With The Chef

The cooking class was one of my favorite activities at Dwarika`s Resort. It costs an extra $15 USD per person; but you get to create a traditional Nepalise dish with one of the resorts renowned chefs. We made veggie momos along with a dipping sauce and masala tea. The class was a blast and the momos were fantastic!

Ayurvedic Consult

Do not miss your free 30 minute consultation with one of the resident Ayurvedic doctors. This experience was interesting and informative; and our doctor was passionate and intelligent. We covered many areas and he used our questions to move the consult in any direction we so desired. Once finished; you have the option  to build on your consult with spa treatments or extra time with the doctor.
