Hotel Yak & Yeti

Kathmandu | Superior

Overlooking an oasis of manicured grounds in the heart of Kathmandu’s Durbar Marg district, the Hotel Yak & Yeti offers high-quality service and a timeless aesthetic. Housed within the beautifully-restored and expanded buildings of the former Lal Durbar palace, there is an instantly grand ambiance evident from the moment you approach the entrance.

The hotel’s evolution is apparent in the broad range of room styles and décor. The suites within the original complex retain much of the palace’s regal character, while those in the extended wing display a more up-to-date dominant design. High-ceilinged, classic rooms are given a contemporary edge with subtle lighting and neutral tones, while the more modern spaces are reconnected with the hotel’s heritage through traditional fabrics and gilded details. Bare brickwork contrasts against intricately-carved wood; dark, polished floorboards are mirrored and lightened by cream ceilings. Carpeted floors mark-out the more established suites, which have space to accommodate cosy sofas and armchairs for private relaxation, while rich textiles and worked metals bring in a sense of culture and tradition.

Enjoy Nepali fine-dining in style between secluded arches, parlour palms and crackling flames reflected against copper, or opt for a table in the bright lobby-side restaurant overlooking the garden. Take tea in the shade of a swaying tree, sip cocktails by the pool, or treat yourself to a Shiatsu massage, before heading out to explore the palaces and historic landmarks of central Kathmandu.
