Where to rest your head | All Things to do  
The Dwarika’s Resort Dhulikhel is a holistic lifestyle retreat, drawing on ancient Himalayan knowledge and philosophy of care for nature and for one’s self.
Dotted among the 20 acres of sloping gardens are nine houses containing 36 guest rooms. Each suite has its own outdoor space with hammock or lounge chairs. The rooms are uncluttered and comfortably and rustically yet stylishly furnished in muted tones with huge picture windows perfect for appreciating the wonderful mountain views. The resort has been built primarily using natural materials such as stone, wood, earth, and traditional building methods of lime with brick dust have been used. 
The Pancha Kosha Himalayan Spa, an integral part of the resort, offers a fabulous range of treatments and activities; as well as body treatments and yoga. There is a Himalayan salt room and meditation room inspired by a blend of Vedic Philosophy and Buddhist Medicine. You can try your hand at pottery making with the resident potter or visit the vegetable farm with the chef. The restaurant, lounge and bar are situated in a central building with numerous other spots ideal for a snack or relaxing with a drink.
Built upon a rich tradition of Nepali hospitality and incorporating some of the country’s most exquisite architectural traditions, The Dwarika’s Hotel in Kathmandu is an authentic experience of Nepal’s ancient cultural heritage. The hotel houses an extensive collection of artefacts from the 13th century onwards, and the buildings and courtyards house some of Nepal’s best craftsmanship – capturing the beauty and spirit of an ancient city. The amalgamation of Nepal’s heritage with its longstanding tradition of hospitality makes The Dwarika’s Hotel in Kathmandu an intimate experience of a refined Nepali lifestyle. 
Located just a stone's throw from the famous Pashupathinath temple and the Buddhist stupa at Bouddhanath and yet just a few minutes away from the airport, The Dwarika's Hotel is an ideal base from which guests can explore Nepal's infinite charms. The spacious rooms, elegant setting and Nepali warmth make it a luxurious retreat, and an experience to treasure.
The best time to visit Kathmandu is September to November. It is the start of the dry season, the weather is balmy and the air is clean.
Culture, Luxury
While in Nepal it's a good idea to ask permission before taking a photo. It is generally okay outside of temples and during festivals, but never inside temples or at religious ceremonies.
