Dusit Hotels and Resorts under Dusit International is making its Nepal debut with the opening of Dusit Princess Kathmandu and Dusit Thani Himalayan Resort Dhulikhel, which will start welcoming guests on 17 and 24 July, respectively.
Dusit Princess Kathmandu is located in the heart of the capital’s vibrant Lazimpat neighbourhood, a short walk from Narayanhiti Palace Museum and just 18 minutes by car from Tribhuvan International Airport. Must-visit attractions such as Kathmandu Durbar Square and Swayambhunath Stupa, one of the oldest and most revered temple complexes in Nepal, are just a short drive away.
Hot on the heels of the opening of Dusit Princess Kathmandu, Dusit Thani Himalayan Resort Dhulikhel will open its doors in the Himalayan foothills between the Mahabharat range and Alpine highland ridge. This location is approximately one hour’s drive from Tribhuvan International Airport and 10 minutes from Namo Buddha, one of the most important Buddhist pilgrimage sites in Nepal.
Providing a tranquil escape amidst nature, the new property is the first luxury branded resort in Dhulikhel.
Encompassed by a community-managed forest and paddy fields, the resort is sanctuary to over 80 rare and exotic species of birds, providing unique opportunities to engage with nature. Dhulikhel Zipline is located nearby, and other adventurous activities such as rafting and bungee jumping are available within a two-hour drive. Bhaktapur Durbar Square, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is approximately one hour away.
“We are thrilled and delighted to unveil Dusit Princess Kathmandu and Dusit Thani Himalayan Resort Dhulikhel, marking our highly anticipated debut in Nepal,” said Mr Gilles Cretallaz, Chief Operating Officer, Dusit International. “With our distinctive fusion of Thai-inspired gracious hospitality and local cultural nuances, we look forward to creating lasting impressions for our guests and the communities we are privileged to serve. We extend our deepest gratitude to our partners and the welcoming communities in Nepal for their tremendous support. Together, we are excited to shape a prosperous future filled with memorable and meaningful experiences that celebrate the remarkable essence of this extraordinary destination.”
Dusit’s debut in Nepal expands the company’s global portfolio to 54 properties operating under Dusit Hotels and Resorts, and over 240 luxury villas under Elite Havens, across 19 countries. More than 60 Dusit Hotels and Resorts are in the pipeline worldwide.
