We reached there right before sunset. The magnificent view of the Shivapuri dusk followed by the night view of Kathmandu was nothing short of extraordinary. With the cool rejuvenating wind blowing gently over our faces, sipping Khukuri Rum, and facing the organic kitchen garden and the entire Kathmandu Valley, the evening was exceptionally beautiful. It is a peaceful getaway spot...

A peaceful place with clean and green evironment for complete relaxation. I had a great time at the resort with my family and got the chance to see a good night view of Kathmandu valley from the resort. The food was very good, specially the dessert prepared from apple ( forget the exact name of the dessert) was very delicious...

Shivapuri retreat is a lovely escape into nature from Kathmandu. Raj and Pratiksha were wonderful hosts. Food was delicious. The room is clean and cosy, with hot shower and a very good matress. On the edge of Shivapuri NP, so easy to go hiking. The garden is beautiful. Hope to return soon! 🙏✨

The best way to have a complete retreat round the clock. We had a marvelous stay in Shivapuri Retreat. Classy interiors, very good service and some excellent dining too. Very reasonably priced too for a resort like this.

If visiting Kathmandu and want to get away from the sensory overload of the city look no further than the Shivapuri Retreat located 500 metres above Kathmandu in Shivapuri National Park. You can enjoy the tranquil village setting and the incredible views overlooking the Kathmandu valley. We arrived early evening and enjoyed a lovely welcome drink in the garden. What...

Nestled in the hills of Shivapuri National Park overlooking Kathmandu Valley from the north, the view is nothing but spectacular. The BBQ was very succulent and juicy, the spices well penetrated and done just right. The staff were very friendly and accommodating to all our requests. The food was delicious, the breakfast a feast. The rooms were meticulous and the...

What a treat to stay here. This is not a hotel, not a guesthouse, rather a home where you'll be welcomed in to the family. Mads, Clare, their son Oskar and team have two very comfy guest rooms in a separate unit from their home which serves as a perfect place to relax for a few days. Situated about 500m...

The owners are keen hikers...

This is my fav place to get away for the weekend, out of the city and into the pristine forest! The village and surrounding culture is fascinating and the best bit is the oxygen re-load I get from a couple of days there, after slogging it out at the office in town all week. Such kind, welcoming hosts and a...
