Nepal's history of modern tourism is in general too short to allow this country to have grand and famous hotels which are older than 50 years (one of the preconditions to become a member of THE MOST FAMOUS HOTELS IN THE WORLD). Therefore we carefully list the most important hotels of the country as members, highlighting on the other hand the date of their full acceptance as full members in the not too distant future. Established in 1965, Hotel de l’ Annapurna prides in being the first Five Star Hotel of Nepal. The capital based, centrally located hotel’s hospitality exemplifies the nation’s philosophy “Athiti Devo Bhawa (Guests are like Gods)”
For over 2000 years, the name Annapurna has symbolized all that is glorious in Nepal, a name that celebrates Nepalese culture in its many form. Establishing base camp at a gracious sanctuary in the heart of the city, situated on an expanse of 5.53 acres at Durbar Marg, the hotel is in the vicinity of embassies, consulates, key government offices and airlines offices. It is also in close proximity to the city’s financial district. Since it opened in 1965, Hotel de l’Annapurna has created its own unique history. From Maharajas and Princes to various Kings, Presidents, CEOs and entertainers, Annapurna has played the perfect host, supportive of their every need. Built in 1965, the hotel is an architectural marvel and has an exclusive pagoda styled roof reflecting the local culture. The hotel is a gracious landmark of Kathmandu, showcasing contemporary Nepalese influences along with Tibetian “Thangkhas” paintings creating an atmosphere of beauty and serenity.
