The on-site restaurant, Odyssey, offers a range of fine dining dishes from Nepali and Indian Cuisine to Chinese and Continental. The restaurant has floor-to-ceiling windows allowing guests to enjoy the mountain views. There's also a cocktail bar which is open all day and serves an eclectic menu of cocktails and mocktails as well as a comprehensive selection of wines.
Facilities and activities
Hotel facilities include an infinity pool, on-site gym and tennis court. Guests can embark on nature walks in the nearby hills, or simply enjoy relaxing by the pool. Sometimes, you'll look out over the clouds as you swim.
This modern and relatively new hotel impressed us with its panoramic views of the Himalaya as well as its comfortable rooms and friendly staff.
