Dusit to operate its first property in Nepal


Thailand-based Dusit International has signed a management agreement with Omstone Asia Capital Nepal Pvt Ltd to operate Dusit Thani Himalayan Resort & Spa, the first Dusit-branded property in Nepal. 
Located just over an hour’s drive from Kathmandu and Tribhuvan International Airport, the luxurious mountaintop resort will comprise 44 guest rooms and 20 villas, each providing views of the majestic Himalayan range.
The new property will have a wellness spa concept created by Dusit’s signature Devarana Spa. Other facilities will include an all-day-dining restaurant, a bar and lobby lounge, meeting facilities and a swimming pool.
Namo Buddha, a small village which houses the ancient Thrangu Tashi Yangtse Monastery, one of the most important Buddhist pilgrimage sites in Nepal, is less than 10 minutes away by car. Dhulikhel, the administrative centre of Kavrepalanchok district, whose old town is home to many Hindu shrines and Buddhist stupa, is also located nearby. The extension of the highway, which links Dhulikel to Kathmandu, is expected to be completed by 2020, reducing travel time from the capital to the resort to under 45 minutes.
Dusit International currently has 29 properties in operation across four brands in eight countries, and expects the number of properties to reach 70 within the next three to four years across key markets worldwide. Besides Dusit Thani, other brands in Dusit International’s portfolio include Dusit Devarana, dusitD2 and Dusit Princess.
