An oasis of calm amid this often frantic city, Dwarika's is a little out of the center, but close to important sights, such as Pashupathinath temple and the Buddhist stupa at Bodnath. This lovely building, filled with intricate wooden carvings, is the perfect blend of tradition and luxury. At the center is a garden courtyard, complete with swimming pool and a poolside bar. Rooms are large and well appointed, and the service impeccable. The three restaurants serve both
Japanese and Nepalese food, which is tasty, if not exactly cheap. And if just being there isn't pampering enough for you, the hotel's spa and daily yoga classes will complete the job. This may be expensive (by Nepalese standards), but is worth the extra for those that can afford it.
