Its location, between Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan, further helps position it as a perfect sojourn and idyllic retreat. Some say it is like entering an earlier age, back into a Nepal that elsewhere barely still exists. This house has stories of ancient trans-Himalaya trade routes and of store-rooms crammed with merchandise en route between the opulence of India and the grandeur of Tibet.
Restoration and conservation of this traditional Newari Town House required keeping the low ceilings and the overall sense of proportion and scale. The practical inclusion of comfortable and clean showers and toilet facilities are achieved. Bathrooms in the ‘Extra Star’ wing are ensuite – pricing reflects this.
