The lodge is located on the border of the Shivapuri National Park, with the foreground drop of Kathmandu city. This family owned and operated lodge has authentic Nepali decor, with local materials chosen and designs, plans and landscaping done with the natural surroundings of the place kept in mind. An old village home, now occupied by the lodge's concierge, lies at the entrance of the lodge. Huge boulders and old trees are ubiquitous. The lodge was literally built around the originally existing elements of the place. The lodge seems to belong here—a natural extension of the hillside that welcomes guests who come to its doors for a unique approach to a vacation.
The lodge has a main building for dining and conference space, a laid-back lounge building area with a fireplace and the rooms are housed in quaint bungalows with a traditional brick facade. The lodge has three cottages offering 10 twin-bed rooms. The limited number of rooms ensures that our guests will have personalized attention and a unique experience.
The red clay of the roof tiles goes with the aesthetic mood of the design. The houses are modeled after the typical Nepali village homes that can be seen all over the hillside, with a two-story design and use of wood that is so common in most Nepali villages. The design sense is largely minimalist, with the overlying color theme being beige and brown—earthy colors that mesh with the environment. All rooms have customized furniture. You will not find any typical, run-of-the-mill designs here, be it the bedside table or a lighting accessory.
At Chhahari, experience the taste of ideal living as you bite into simple yet succulent dishes prepared using vegetables grown in our own organic garden. Moving away from the use of artificial pesticides, which harms nature and us, the retreat gives you a chance to be a part of the process.
