Top must-visit vintage hotels in Nepal
Nepal is a country of traditions and heritage architectures. Therefore, it is not difficult to spot the old-fashion styled hotels in this wonderful country.

  • Dwarika's Hotel, Kathmandu

    Often described as a "living museum," this family-run five-star hotel has become a savior of Newari crafts and architecture, dating back to the ancient Malla dynasty (1201-1769), as the Kathmandu valley tears down old buildings in its hurry to modernize.

    Today, Dwarika's Hotel claims to boast the world's largest private collection of wooden carvings. The hotel's mission has become newly important since the earthquake, which destroyed countless Newari temples and artworks.

  • Swotha Traditional Homes, Patan

    The old Newari-style homes on the fringes of Patan's Durbar Square are being rapidly replaced by new buildings. In 2011, a group of architect friends founded Swotha Traditional Homes, preserving a 70-year-old traditional building by turning it into a heritage hotel.

  • The Pavilions Himalaya, Pokhara

    This stylish five-star eco resort was opened in November 2015 by Dutch-Scotsman Douglas Maclagan -- who has spent the past 25 years working on social projects in Nepal -- on land once attached to his farmhouse in Pokhara.

    The hotel also has an organic farm -- home to buffaloes, goats, chicken and sometimes boars, as well as vegetable patches -- which supplies the hotel restaurant. The majority of employees are from the local village, and 70% of the hotel's profits will fund projects for disadvantaged children.

  • Barahi Jungle Lodge, Chitwan

    In 2009, the Nepalese government controversially ordered all resorts operating within Chitwan National Park -- home to one of the world's largest Bengal tiger populations, and rare rhinoceros -- to exit the park to assist wildlife conservation efforts. In 2015 it was rated by the Travel Operators for Tigers as "outstanding" in sustainability.

    The resort doesn't serve drinking water in plastic bottles, runs outreach programs with the local Tharu tribe and has planted 5,500 indigenous plants, including seasonal fruits which guests are encouraged to pluck and eat.
    None of this has come at the expense of luxury.

    All 18 huts in the resort's 13 hectares of pristine forest have a view of the Rapti River and national park, as well as a private balcony and access to the biggest swimming pool in Chitwan.

    The vision of owner Prakas Mohan Dhaubhadel, nearly all furniture in this hotel is a salvaged antique -- the 75-year-old carved window frames were pulled from a bonfire while the 400-year-old stone flooring was rescued from the rubble of a destroyed royal palace. The hotel also pays scouts to lookout for discarded antiques.
