My husband and I stayed here for one night on our honeymoon right before leaving Nepal for home. It was quite a relaxing stay and so comfortable. Highly recommended if you would like to escape from the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu. The owners of the cottage are warm and friendly.
We regretted not being able to stay for one or two more days to explore the area around the cottage and to get more sleep at this beautiful cottage. It's a perfect place to have intimate and peaceful time with your loved ones.
- Our driver had a lot of trouble finding the place so I'd suggest to print out the directions given by the owners via email before heading to the cottage. Also, save their contact number into your phones. We actually did printed all these information out but somehow misplaced it.
- The scenery of the city from the cottage would have been very nice without all the fog but that was true even for Pokhara and Chitwan. Our guide suggested to come during the winter period instead when the sky is clearer.
- be prepared for the climb up to the cottage (depends which cottage you stay at though as they're at different levels). It's not so bad but if you had been hiking the day before and your legs are all cramped up, it'll be a struggle. The cottage is worth the trouble though. Our driver managed to go most of the way up (kudos to him, he was driving a very battered old car!). You can request for a staff to help with your luggage.
- only cash is accepted for all services provided in the cottage, either in Nepalese Rupees or USD
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Shivapuri Heights consist of three Cottages perched on the hillside above Budhanilkantha, with stunning views over the valley. They are a million miles from Kathmandu, but luckily only 30 minutes by taxi and a short uphill walk. As a secret getaway for families, romantic couples, or a relaxing break from Kathmandu, they're hard to beat. ... more less
