A unique place to stay with plenty of character, Dwarikas is a museum and hotel in one. Traditional Nepalese carved wooden panels and terracotta work are preserved and used throughout the building to recreate the atmosphere of a Nepali Palace. Dwarika Das Shrestha, the founder of the hotel, gave the best part of his life to build it and his efforts have been rewarded with numerous conservation awards. The 74 spacious bedrooms are decorated with custom-made furniture and located around a serene courtyard at the hotels heart. The in-house restaurant offers some of the best food around.
