Set in the hills just 50 minutes from Kathmandu, Dwarika’s Resort feels like a remote mountain oasis. Each of the 40 suites has a private balcony overlooking the Himalayas. Ten-day cleansing packages begin with a consultation with an Ayurvedic doctor who determines your body type (fire, air, water) and suggests a tailored program of diet and activities to improve both your physical and emotional health. You might sit in the Himalayan salt room to boost your immune system, walk barefoot through a meditation maze, or hike 90 minutes to Dwarika’s organic farm to harvest ingredients for a dinner of Zen Buddhist dishes. From $360.
