Indian Hotels Company opens second hotel in Nepal

The Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL) has opened its second property in Nepal, Vivanta Kathmandu.

South Asia’s hospitality giant is introducing the Vivanta brand to the region following the opening of Meghauli Serai - a Taj Safaris lodge in Chitwan National Park - in 2016.

Located in the Jhamsikhel district near UNESCO World Heritage Site Patan Durbar Square, Vivanta Kathmandu provides the perfect springboard from which to explore the surrounding temples and towns. 

The hotel comprises 110 rooms and suites, as well as a fitness centre, rooftop swimming pool, spa and concierge services.

It also arms guests with a number of culinary options: Akari serves up pan-Asian cuisine; rooftop bar Koko offers bistro-style fare; while all-day diner Mynt celebrates local Newari festival dishes.

“We are thrilled to embark on this exciting new venture in Kathmandu, which will complete the tourist circuit by providing a stopover to UNESCO listed Chitwan National Park,’ said IHCL executive vice president for operations in north and west India, Rohit Khosla.

“Nepal offers medieval cities and sacred sites to Himalayan peaks and wildlife safaris, catering to a multitude of experiences. We look forward to working with our partners, CG Group on this project, reiterating our commitment to the region.”

Vivanta is the upscale arm of IHCL comprising 24 hotels in 22 locations.
