There is a Presidential Suite set over 159-square-metres, the new property boasts specialty Thai restaurant Soi; a Dusit Gourmet outlet featuring freshly baked pastries, artisanal sandwiches, and deli bites; and rooftop Kibu Sky Lounge with panoramic city views. The rooftop Blue bar also boasts the city’s highest infinity pool.

Thoughtfully designed to reflect local culture and architecture, the beautiful property offers an oasis of relaxation amidst the buzz of the city.


Dusit Princess Kathmandu will also soon open its Crest spa offering a wide range of Thai-inspired massage therapies and beauty treatments. A steam room, sauna, and fully equipped Crest Club with a gym are also available for guests seeking to pause, refresh, and reinvigorate in the utmost of comfort.

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 beautiful 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 and is envisaged to become a must-visit wellness destination that contributes to the wellbeing of visitors and the community. From personalised butler service to customised wellness activities to exclusive dining experiences, Dusit Thani Himalayan Resort Dhulikhel has been crafted to deliver a bespoke experience for guests.

Alongside 54 spacious and elegantly appointed guest rooms and suites ranging from 47 square metres to 57 square metres, and 18 exclusive villas ranging from 124 square metres to 247 square metres, the resort features a wide range of facilities for business and leisure.

At the heart of the property is the exclusive Devarana Wellness. This tranquil space features a traditional Thai healing spa, fitness and movement centre, outdoor infinity pool and Jacuzzi, and dedicated spaces for mindful and energising activities such as Yoga and meditation.

Making the most of the resort’s stunning location, guests can also arrange multi-day retreats and wellness programmes supported by invigorating activities such as bike riding and hiking to local villages Phulbari and Panchkhal, where they can immerse themselves in the area’s rich cultural heritage and traditions.

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.

For dining, the resort embraces a farm-to-table concept and sources the finest local ingredients. Guests can indulge in a diverse and mouthwatering selection of Thai, Nepalese, Indian, and Asian delicacies at Thaan Restaurant, tuck into seasonal small plates paired with Shisha and creative cocktails at poolside bar Bela, and book a personalised, exclusive dining experience with a dedicated chef.

To enhance comfort and privacy, guests can relish their meals on the balconies of their guest rooms, enjoying sweeping views of the valley and the awe-inspiring 180-degree Himalayan vista.
