We are proud to introduce our flagship brand in the beautiful kingdom of Nepal: Neeraj Govil, Area Vice President, South Asia, Marriott International
Kathmandu Marriott Hotel opens in the historic capital city, marking the debut of the flagship brand in Nepal. Designed to expand the mind of modern travelers, the hotel’s prime location connects next generation travelers to attractions throughout the fascinating cultural city.
“We are proud to introduce our flagship brand in the beautiful kingdom of Nepal. The country welcomed one million tourist arrivals in 2018, reaching a new record to show that this country has great tourism potential,” said Neeraj Govil, Area Vice President, South Asia, Marriott International. “The hotel will offer our guests brilliant stays in Kathmandu, stimulating guests with cultural experiences that speak to their inventive nature.”
“For both business and leisure travelers, Nepal offers many UNESCO World Heritage Sites with stunning experiences while guests unwind and recharge in the comfort of sophisticated spaces and the warm hospitality of Marriott.”
Upon entering the hotel, guests will see thoughtful touches paying tribute to the country. A 500 kilogram Nepalese praying bell hangs from the ceiling while local paintings and crafts adorn the walls. The patterned carpets mimic the detailed weaving seen in the Dhaka Topi, a brimless cap that is part of the traditional Nepalese national dress.
The 214 well-appointed rooms reflect streamlined Marriott Modern design complemented with premium elegance and intuitive technology. The traditional desk is replaced by flexible surfaces enabling space for work and relaxation. Meanwhile, a soft seating nesting nook allows guests to look out onto verdant greenery and the majestic Himalayan mountain ranges that lend an impressive sense of place.
“The Kathmandu Marriott Hotel is thoughtfully designed to ensure a brilliant stay. We look forward to delivering unparalleled guest experiences backed by comfort and great service through best in class facilities and amenities for both international and local guests. Our four distinctive dining venues, offering sumptuous local and international cuisines, promise to raise the bar within the Kathmandu culinary scene,” said Jean-Louis Ripoche, General Manager, Kathmandu Marriott Hotel.
