Best Places to Stay in Nepal

Nepal may be a small country, but it has one of the most diverse landscapes, ranging from lowlands to hills to mountains. It has the most altitude variation of anywhere on earth, from 230 feet (70 meters) to 29,029 feet (8848 meters). With so much to see across Nepal, you’ll definitely want to venture out to at least a few different cities instead of staying in one place for your entire trip. I spent 12 days on a culture and wildlife focused trip in Nepal that didn’t include any trekking. I’m highlighting the best places to stay in Nepal, where I stayed throughout my journey across this stunning country.

 

Pokhara – Temple Tree Resort

Infinity Pool Temple Tree Resort Pokhara Nepal

Despite how much I loved exploring the town of Pokhara, every day I looked forward to returning to my room at Temple Tree Resort. This peaceful oasis in downtown Pokhara has an outdoor infinity pool to cool off on those especially hot days, an on-site restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and a bar right between the pool and restaurant.

Rooms feature private balconies with garden views, air conditioning, and luxurious ensuite bathrooms. The WiFi wasn’t the greatest in the rooms, but it worked okay on the balcony and was even faster from the main lobby. Check the latest rates here for your stay.

Chitwan National Park – Tigerland Safari Resort

Tigerland Safari Resort Chitwan National Park - Nepal Travel Guide

Upon arriving at Tigerland Safari Resort, I was greeted with a cool rag and fresh orange juice — a much needed and refreshing welcome after a long, sweaty journey there. Off in the distance, elephants were nibbling from the trees. The humidity is high here (you are in the jungle after all), but thankfully there is air conditioning in the cottages. Check the latest prices and don’t forget to bring a flashlight!

 

Kathmandu – Kantipur Temple House

Kantipur Temple House is an eco-boutique hotel centrally located in Kathmandu in the neighborhood of Thamel and is only a 10-minute walk from Durbar Square. Complete with a garden and terrace, the authentic Nepalese architecture and décor of the building and rooms will get you into the Nepal spirit right away.

They operate under a “no plastic philosophy” and clean drinking water is provided for guests in all rooms. The showers are provided courtesy of solar heated water and they avoid changing towels or bed sheets daily (unless requested) to save water. They also create jobs by hiring locals in the community. Though there are frequent power outages in Nepal, Kantipur Temple House was one of the first hotels in Nepal to use completely clean energy for their daily operations, and they use solar power instead of traditional diesel generators.

The WiFi here was the best I had during my entire time I spent in Nepal, as they have multiple networks you can join if one is slower. This also happened to be the only place I stayed that didn’t have air conditioning, but they do provide fans and I actually barely even used the fan. Many of the rooms open up to the courtyard so the sun is never directly beating in the window, and it seemed to stay fairly cool in the rooms. Take advantage of the free daily yoga classes out on the lawn for a fresh start to your morning. Rates start at only $63/night!
