Located in the heart of Nepal’s central region, just over an hour’s drive from Kathmandu and Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM), the luxurious mountaintop resort will comprise 44 well-appointed guest rooms and 20 exclusive villas, each providing magnificent views of the majestic Himalayan range.

Other facilities will include an all-day-dining restaurant, a bar and lobby lounge, meeting facilities and a swimming pool.
Namo Buddha, a small village which houses the ancient Thrangu Tashi Yangtse Monastery, one of the most important Buddhist pilgrimage sites in Nepal, is less than ten minutes by car from this new property. With 29 properties, currently in operation across four brands in eight countries, Dusit International is in a significant growth phase which will see the number of Dusit properties reach 70 within the next three to four years across key markets worldwide. Alongside Dusit Thani, other brands in Dusit International’s portfolio include Dusit Devarana, dusitD2 and DusitPrincess.
