Baber Mahal Vilas

Kathmandu, Nepal

Baber Mahal Vilas is a boutique property set within a quiet residential area of Kathmandu with 33 well-appointed rooms each unique in design (Newari, Mustang, Torai and Victorian styles are on show) and traditionally furnished.

Facilities include a rooftop pool, spa, restaurant and cafe, gym, and library. The hotel is attached to Baber Mahal Revisited, a charming complex of neo-classical ‘Rana’ palace buildings that have been lovingly restored to house several chic shops, galleries, restaurants, and bars.


The hotel opens a window to the history of Nepal with several original photographs, paintings, and sculptures that adorn its walls. It’s a destination in itself with a labyrinth of boutique shops and dining options, all within a few steps.
