Poudel reported that guests arriving through the end of this fiscal year will receive a special 25 percent discount on the room charge.
The hotel also has four state-of-the-art meeting rooms: Manakamana, Gorkhanath, Kalika and Ligligkot, which can accommodate a total of 600 people at a time, Poudel shared.
The hotel has been built to be a three star facility. However, it has not yet been certified by the Department of Tourism.
