Resort Review : Club Himalaya,Nepal


Club Himalaya is a boutique resort nestled in the lap of Himalayas. It has been designed by a Japanese architect. It’s a beautiful, spread out property which is ideal for a weekend getaway for Nepal People and for us Indians it is solitude.

Rooms 

The rooms are of two categories Standard and Deluxe. Standard rooms are in the old wing and Deluxe rooms are in the new wing. Both wings are interconnected. Difference between the rooms is bath tubs. The new rooms are minus the bath tubs keeping water conservation in mind. All rooms have a private balcony. You may choose an East or West facing room. Either will be of an advantage as East view room offer beautiful sunrise whereas west facing rooms offer gorgeous sunsets.

I stayed in room number 409. Try for upper story floors as they offer better views.

View of the room is something I could go on and on about. Its a panoramic view of range of Himalayas with sun rays seeping through valleys and clouds and everything beautiful.

Here are a few pictures of the room.

Way to conference hall (There were multiple halls we had a hall named Bhaktapur ) was through either lobby or through the rooms wing. All around there were floral plants and beautifying elements, prayer flags etc. It gave a very calmly feeling.

The resort also had an indoor Pool and Gift shop for those who wanted to shop within the property (Prices are more or less the same if you buy stuff at the local market)

My favourite spot in the property was this particular sitting area. The colours used throughout this property were really nice and warm co-ordinated thoughtfully. People would step out in between their breaks and have a cup of tea or coffee. All of them told me that the feel of having a conference in such environment is joyous! Imagine having a hot cup of cinnamon tea with veg pakodas is a setting like this !

The resort had only one restaurant which was at the lobby level. ( It was multi-cuisine though )  Attached to it was Indrawati bar and terrace. On 30th night we were to have a private dinner arranged at this venue. As I was organizing for set up , this is what the terrace looked like at 6 pm.

We had DJ and Drinks at the Bar Bimal was absolute fun to work with. Overall the food here was good too. Maximum time they allow for the bar to be open is 12 midnight unlike cities. We had to push off.

Next morning was a sunny one. I could enjoy a nice lemon tea by my balcony and soak in the sun. Throughout our stay the temperature was never above 15 degrees  hence it was very pleasant.

Breakfast at Club Himalaya is Mainly Continental with two Indian dishes. I decided to go light on my tummy. Here’s what my breakfast that day looked like.

Breakfast today was minimal. Infact the caption of the insta story was 'less is more' can't agree more 😉 In pic – Baked Beans , Croissant, Pancake with maple syrup , sauteed cabbage and a glass of peach juice. It's beautiful weather here and good food at @clubhimalaya totally kick-starts my day.

The food in general was a good a blend of Indian and Conti or Indian and Asian with a good balance of veg and non veg options, salads and desserts.

My plate full of Salads

In the evening, I got some free time around 6 pm I managed to go see the terrace. Me and some fellow travelers could see the snow-capped Himalayas in the background very light traces for pictures but we all were delighted. Watching the sun go down on that cool evening was one memorable thing!

Verdict : A very calm and relaxing resort if you are looking an alternate to Kathmandu.
