Holiday makers can expect to stay at the Sheraton Hotel in Kathmandu from February 2018. The 225-room Sheraton Kathmandu Hotel will offer a full-range of amenities as expected from any high-end hotel and resort, including the all-white Sheraton Sleeper-bed, designed using the AAA Five Diamond Award criteria. To take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, the hotel will come equipped with its own spa, swimming pool and a complete fitness suite. The business center is expected to draw thousands with 16,500 square feet of meeting space. The hotel will be constructed in Kantipath.
The hotel which will be owned by MIT Group Holdings Nepal Private Limited will be managed by Starwood Hotels and Resorts, one of the worlds largest hotel companies. CEO of the MIT Group, Shesh Ghale (NRN) had shared his plans to open a luxury hotel in Nepal last year. The newly signed agreement definitely seals the deal. The wealthy Australia based non-resident Nepali is on the list of the 200 wealthiest Australians with a fortune of $225 million. He has shared that the hotel would have an investment of $75-80 million (Australian).
The Sheraton brand previously managed the Everest Hotel in Kathmandu as the Hotel Everest Sheraton in the 1980’s.
Amazing stuff, hopefully this will create many direct and indirect job opportunities for people in Nepal and will also attract more tourists to come and visit Nepal. Holiday Inn should enter the hotel market in Nepal and provide some affordable rooms too, just a thought.Join Lex on Facebook!
