IHG Expands in Nepal
IHG announced signings for 4 new properties in Nepal: InterContinental Kathmandu Lazimpat, Hotel Indigo Pokhara Gharipatan, InterContinental Resort Pokhara Begnas Lake, and InterContinental Resort Chitwan, Meghauli.
“The strategic location of all four hotels in different key tourism destinations of Nepal provide us with a great opportunity to offer world-class hospitality and cater to the demands of our guests,” said Sudeep Jain, Managing Director of South West Asia at IHG Hotels & Resorts.
- The InterContinental Kathmandu Lazimpat, located in Nepal’s capital, will have 225 rooms and suites and be catered to business and leisure travelers. The hotel will have several dining options, a ballroom, a retail store, fitness facilities, and a swimming pool.
- The InterContinental Pokhara Begnas Lake in central Nepal will have 80 rooms, plus all-day dining, a lobby lounge, and a bar. Like other InterContinental hotels, this property will have a spa, a club lounge, and a pool, among other amenities.
- Hotel Indigo Pokhara, also in central Nepal, will have 100 rooms. This property will have 2 meeting spaces, a lobby lounge and bar, a health club, a spa, a business center, recreation areas, and a swimming pool.
