Tucked away at the base of the Shivapuri forest but still close enough to get in & out of Kathmandu, Chandra Ban blends almost seamlessly into its surroundings. Stunningly beautiful gardens surround the main house with incredible views across the Kathmandu valley.
Everything about Chandra Ban is designed to ensure that you can truly relax and enjoy this uniquely special location.
The main house has two guest apartments along with a beautifully decorated guest lounge area where you feel completely at home leading to an outside terrace with spectacular valley views.
Situated higher behind the main house, a climb up the steps through lush, winding gardens brings you to the two larger apartments but the word 'apartment' really does not do this accommodation justice. The top ‘lodge’ (302) is decorated with beautifully restored, authentic, antique Tibetan furniture and artefacts while 3 private terraces provide even more incredible valley views.
Inside there is a fully functional kitchenette, huge open plan lounge & dining area with double height, wooden ceilings giving it more of a wonderful safari/alpine lodge type feel and a separate bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Every comfort has been carefully thought out and planned with attention to the fine detail, modern amenities such as WIFI, TV, DVD & huge comfy seats blend perfectly with the luxurious yet understated décor with traditional Tibetan/local art works adorning the walls. The bedroom has its own outside private terrace while the comfy bed ensures your best sleep whilst in Kathmandu, awakening to the sound of the forest. The largest private terrace is off the lounge giving an ever changing panoramic view of the valley and the hills beyond…simply stunning.
With such a small number of guest accommodation there really is space to be as sociable or as private as you wish. As well as the main house, the gardens provide a haven in which to relax & the delicious homemade Nepali cuisine can be served on the terrace overlooking the rice fields (weather permitting). Luca & Camilla are both owners & hosts providing the kind of personalised touches that are rarely found these days. They have succeeded in creating a place where the very best in culture, environmental ethos, cuisine, home comforts, ambiance & location combine to give their guests that most elusive of travel experiences…an absolute perfect stay.
Savour each moment of your stay at Chandra Ban as you’ll spend every day thereafter wishing you were back!
