This is a difficult one Lets start with the good! The property itself is nothing but stunning and as large as you like! Loads of things to do and expolore The food is delicious but overpriced I would say Accomodation perfect! What was a huge turn off for me was upon leaving.I was only going to Bakhtapur (40-45 min away…should cost no more than 15 usd or 2000 nepali rupees). I asked for a regular taxi since I was on my own and only had 2 small bags. I was told by reception that there was no way they could get a regular cab since the property was a bit outside Dhulikhel and one of their own taxis/transports was the only option Upon leaving it became clear to me that this option cost me an absurd 9600 (including taxes-73$) instead of the normal 2000…Besides it was a large transporter for 10 ppl which I obviously did not need. Within 2 mintes of leaving the property I saw no less than 5 taxis so this whole thing about no being able to get taxis there was clearly not true. Nowhere in my book is it fair and correct to make someone pay almost 5 times more than a normal price-even less so when I specifically asked for it. It is just greed and frankly ruined a bit part of my stay there (its not always about the money but more the feeling of having been taken advantge of) Doubtful if I would return which is a shame because as I wrote above the place in itself is stunning

The great habitat to stay for relaxation and spend quality time with your partner.We adored everything here housekeeping team keeping the rooms clean every time we wanted.service team from the lunch till the dinner we got high level service from the staffs. Ashim sresta the talented bartender briefed us about the newari culture it was very easy to communicate in Anglo English with him really appreciated and we enjoyed there a lot at bar with fantastic cocktails. Yoga master was so honest and polite he was really amazing we were relaxed. Spa team Bala has really good hands she did amazing spa treatment my wife is still so pleased with her. We wanna appreciate the dwarikas resort family for taking care of us and we could see really hardworking staffs everytime the same faces making us happy and attending us.

We booked dwarikas for our honeymoon it was pleasure to be here at this place.we had memorable moments here from the zero lounge to nature restaurant service was in top-notch but briefing before we checked in was unsatisfactory we couldn't understand what they were trying to explain 🤷everytime we wanted to know about the resort answer from the front desk was miscomprehend.we loved the rooms, foods and service the most.

My wife and I have spent two nights in this heaven. It was grand finale for our two weeks in Nepal. It is not a resort, but a whole mountain. You are sourounded by imense trees and vegetation, tasteful nepalic art and objects, mainly budhist, giving the feeling of serenity, peaceful and nature. the service is personal, warm, pleasent, and smiling. You can join many activities, mostly free, Yoga (twice a day), singing bawl healing, prana yama, pottery class, drawing class, cooking class (with extra charge), and more. and the two sunrises we spent on the very top of the mountain, looking dreamingly at the snow caped Himalayan Langtang chain, was experience of a lifetime. True, it is very expensive and they are quite rigid regarding discounts, but you get a lot of value for your money

This World Class mountain side resort is AWESOME. Developed with nature and natural healing in mind. Many trails, pools, spa, medication areas, organic farm, organic food and service plus. Rooms are spacious with astounding views. You need to go here to stay and enjoy the facilities. We were more on the go and a bit far to come and go from.

Well I had booked Dwarika 2 nights 2 rooms for junior suits from their sales until they take booking confirmation and get deposited they act/treat very good and accept rupees and all but once the guest checked inn to their property they start making trouble every minute before checked inn they ask for food what you want bla bla...... to guests and to the agency asking money not in rupees all in dollars another thing before we checked out I paid whole amount 2382.82$ but they give me a receipts of only 900 $ only and still they refused to send me the other receipts proof of my payments and they still text and call me to visit those people which I will never do . So dear travel partner be aware with these shocker make sure before your guest checked inn later they changed their mind so don't trust them they thinks that are the only heritage property and people comes for them shameful hospitality never come back again uploading with proofs !!!!!

Response from Dwarikas Hotel, General Manager at The Dwarika's Resort
Responded Oct 16, 2022
Dear Mr. Rokka, We understand this is regarding the booking of your client Mr. Giladi and family at the Dwarika’s Resort, Dhulilkhel, as we have not received any booking for a Mr. Ben B. Please note that the requirement to settle the room bills of an international guest, other than Indian Nationals, in foreign exchange accepted currency is a government implemented policy and not an internal policy of the Dwarika’s. To add to this, our sales team had ensured that this information was communicated to you on the time of the booking placement, in order to avoid any misunderstanding in the future. Also the booking for the said suites were placed almost 45 days in advance, giving you ample time to prepare for the payment from your side. In all of our correspondence we have made it abundantly clear that the payment has to be settled in USD (foreign exchange accepted currency), and none of this detail was a last minute surprise. Contrary to your claim of paying the full bill amount, we only received a partial payment of USD 900. Since our priority has always been our guests and we go to lengths to ensure that they have the best possible experience with us, we even agreed to accept the partial payment of USD 900 and to hold the NPR equivalent of USD 1482.82 as a guarantee even when you informed us about this matter at the very last minute, i.e. during the time of guest check-out. We have always made it clear that the NPR amount is only a deposit, not the final payment, and will be refunded upon the receipt of the remaining balance in USD. This is the reason you have received the receipt for the amount of USD 900 only. Standing by our words, the receipt of the balance amount will be duly given to you once the payment has been received in USD in full. Further, we would have been able to accept your NPR payment if the payment had come through to us from a company account; where the company has a foreign exchange license. However, since we received the payment through a personal account, this does not allow us to accept the NPR payment at all. We can only take NPR payment from foreign exchange license holders. We understand the policies of the Government of Nepal can be complicated but it’s a required formality by the government. We have hence been trying to reach you to sort out this matter and would be happy to sit with you to finally settle it. I hope the above clarifies any misunderstanding you may hold against the resort, which is not founded at all. I hope that you will be willing to cooperate to set up an appointment with our team at our hotel to discuss and finally settle this matter. With Warm Wishes, Dwarika’s Resort, Dhulikhel

We've stayed at many hotels in nepal most of the hotels serves the same food but in dwarikas resort it was different foods were so fresh and has most delicious food we've had in nepal.its a spiritual place indeed we've done the blessing ceremony and it was unreal.7am yoga made me so relaxed it made my day pleasant relieved my stress.infinity pool has very great view but very cold.we enjoyed every moment at this resort.Sunset view from zero zone bar is just mind-blowing we had very flavoursome cocktails there served by popular barman Ashim shreta.Service at the restaurant is phenomenal they are very professional at the dinner time thank you Ashim,Bikram and the others for taking care of us and for being so attentive.we skipped spa treatments because of the busy time schedule of the resort.
