Panoramic Kathmandu views from the rooftop bar, cool, contemporary rooms, a 10th floor restaurant inspired by Asian flavours
The first thing you’ll want to do when arriving at Vivanta Kathmandu is head straight to the rooftop heated infinity pool and open air Koko bar to make sure those views are as spectacular as they come. They are. And the street art laden walls, sherbet cocktails and leather sofas give you an idea of the stylish atmosphere you can expect come dusk. Akari restaurant next door is just as chic albeit it more minimalistic, serving Burmese and Japanese cuisine alongside a show kitchen where chefs fight flames on the Teppanyaki grills. Casual comfort food is well thought out back on the lobby level at Mynt with live station buffet breakfasts, afternoon mezze platters and a Nepali menu inspired by mountain produce.
Rooms are comfortable and stylish and Executive suites have the benefit of floor-to-ceiling windows and fantastic views. Attention to detail has been put into place throughout the hotel and extends to its thoughtful staff; whether you’re looking for a therapeutic massage at the luxury Jiva Spa or want concierge to arrange guided hikes through Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park’s fairytale forest of rare orchids bears and birds or a trip to any of Kathmandu’s seven UNESCO World Heritage-listed sites.
