My First Surgery

A travel blog entry by bechilton


Now I have to remember what I did today. Oh that's right.........I went into theatre and SAW A SURGERY!!!!! Everyone (doctors and nurses) were looking after me well (in case I decided to throw up or pass out lol)!

18 hours in Kathmandu

A travel blog entry by gmeetstheworld


This trip gets more and more amazing.

The Nat Geo folks have their **** together to say the least. It's incredible. You would never know that there are more than 70 people on this trip. We are never crowded together or rushed or made to wait for anything. They have about 6 of these luxurious buses at every location. They are never filled …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Dwarika's Hotel Kathmandu

    Probably the best hotel we've ever stayed at!


    We stayed at Dwarikas Hotel before and after a trek in the Everest Region before travelling to the Chitwan National Park. On our return from Chitwan we were due to stay in a Guest House in the Thamel area of Kathmandu, but we loved Dwarikas so much we booked to stay for a third time cancelled the guest house.

    Con il Dwarika si va sul sicuro


    Il Dwarika era giusto quello che mi ci voleva dopo aver viaggiato per il Nepal per un paio di giorni. Ero stanco di sfacchinare! Servizio accomodante, belle stanze e pavimenti, acqua CALDA, prezzo onesto, staff disponibile, senso di sicurezza...

    Mit dem Dwarika's Hotel kann man nichts falsch machen


    Das Dwarika's Hotel war genau das, was ich brauchte, nachdem ich ein paar Tage durch Nepal gereist war. Endlich wieder Komfort. Abends wurden die Betten aufgeschlagen, die Zimmer und das Grundstück waren wunderschön, es gab warmes Wasser, der Preis stimmte, die Angestellten waren hilfsbereit und man fühlte sich sicher.

    Can't go wrong with Dwarika's


    The Dwarika's was just what I needed after traveling in Nepal for a couple of days. No more roughing it! Turn down service, beautiful rooms and grounds, HOT water, fair price, helpful staff, sense of security...

    A delightful oasis in Kathmandu


    We stayed at Dwarika's for two days before, and two days after, a trek in the Everest region. The hotel and its beautiful grounds are a delightful oasis in the noise and bustle of sprawling Kathmandu. Just walking through the door into the courtyard began a feeling of serenity.

    Dwarika's is devoted to the preservation of the craftmanship of ancient Nepal. The wood carvings on the windows, the ceramic sculptures and pottery are all made in a workshop on the premises.

    The rooms (we stayed in two) are comfortable and atmospheric. The food is delicious and varied, especially their upscale Nepalese restaurant Krishnarpan.

    The staff were persistently accommodating and well-trained.

    Highly recommended!

    Perfect way to start your trip or finish your visit to Nepal.. A MUST!


    A Great Hotel, rich in culture, great food, clean, safe, close to the airport ( 5 minutes), near the Boundhanath Stupa and Pashupatinath Hindu Templo. Picture perfect. A MUST in Nepal. Dwarika Hotel is unique!

    Terrible massage, rooms a little run-down, but still beautiful


    The massage was horrendous. The therapist dropped some oil on the floor and scooped it back into the same dish. She was rough and a little rude. It was also uncomfortable on the floor. Housekeeping service is inconsistent and needs improvement. Some of the rooms are a little run-down and in need of renovation. Wirless internet from the rooms is a big plus but the connection keeps on going on and off. However having said this, I still find this hotel a beautiful oasis. It's worth the experience to come here for a meal even if you are not staying overnight.The swimming pool is lovely, the reception staff are friendly and the food is nice. I would probably stay here again, just avoid their massages.

    Authentic choice


    We stayed three nights at Dwarika`s in January 06. This is a beautiful boutique hotel. It is located fairly out of Kathmandu city centre. This can be considered as an advantage given the city`s tiring hustle and bustle but also forces you to travel by taxi or rickshaw to the city centre each time (which itself is another tiring process due to endless negotiations with the drivers and several rip-off attempts). The rooms are very authentic, in Newari style decorated with valuable Newari wooden craft work. The building we stayed was somewhat older and the bathrooms were especially in need of repair (out of order showers, no hairdryers, general old appearance etc.) but the rooms that are in the same building with reception are new and in better condition. Our stay coincided with a cold wave in the country and heating system from air-conditioning was not enough. The staff gave hot water filled plastic bags to make us warmer, which worked quite well. Another missing point is the hotel lacks a SPA center, although they have in-room massage facility. In room massage is done on the floor which is quite uncomfortable and unhealthy. I do not recommend you to take a massage unless the hotel dedicates a comfortable SPA room somewhere in the premises. The hotel also has a good but expensive Newari style authentic restaurant, Krisnarpan which is worth trying.

    The absolute best hotel ever!


    I am an avid traveller and have stayed at many hotels around the world- however there simply is no place like Dwarikas. The grounds are almost magical, and at night time the traditional nepali architecture and gorgeous woodwork comes alive with lit diyas/candles gracing the path. The rooms were absolutely gorgeously appointed and fantastically decorated. You are made to feel like you are staying a Nepali village (albeit a very luxe one) with two of the owner's very friendly dogs strolling the grounds and everyone around greeting you with a friendly smile.

    Nepalise style in an international setting


    Dwarika's is the way a hotel should be. It celebrates all that is the very best of Nepal. It has the feel of a boutique hotel with all the facilities of an international brand (and none of the drawbacks). On arrival at the hotel I was given a traditional greeting with prayer shawl and complimentary drink - this sounds tacky but was completely genuine. I was shown to the largest hotel room I've ever stayed in and this was a 'standard' room. The bathroom itself was larger than most hotel rooms. Decorated with clean, crisp sheets the bed was enormous. Traditional woodwork adorns the windows, daybeds, desk and sideboard, with terracotta bricks adding a warmth to the room. This is not your stock-standard hotel room devoid of personality: the majority of the room's contents have been made locally if not onsite - Drawika's operates its own school onsite encouraging local artists in traditional woodworking techniques etc.
