Nestled in Nepal, The Forbidden Kingdom and the gateway to Tibet, Shinta Mani Mustang will offer intrepid travellers an authentic taste of the Himalayas.
With all we’ve been through over the past few years, you’d be forgiven for wanting to get away from it all, to reconnect with yourself, embrace a sense of freedom, and spoil yourself with a little he-pampering in the process. Fortunately, a new all-inclusive lodge is set to open in Nepal in August combining spectacular landscapes and contemporary luxury.
The brand’s first property outside Cambodia, Shinta Mani Mustang – A Bentley Collection will boast just 29 cozy suites when it opens on the cusp of the Tibetan plateau. Offering a curated journey into this remarkable landscape, one rich in Buddhist faith with monasteries dotting the surrounding snow-capped peaks, the lodge’s suites take their inspiration from the traditional Tibetan home, with each featuring an open-plan bedroom combined with a living area and a separate bathroom. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer majestic views of the iconic Nilgiri mountain.
Culinary options at Shinta Mani Mustang – A Bensley Collection will include the 60-seat Nilgiri Restaurant, named after the majestic mountain it looks out onto, and a large outdoor dining patio, complete with large fire pit, where modern Nepalese and western cuisines will be served, using locally sourced and foraged produce. The Aara Bar is named after an exotic local Tibetan/Sherpa liquor and promises to be the spot for post-dinner story telling.
In addition, a Wellness Centre features two treatments suites with hot plunge poos, steam rooms, and saunas, and a menu of traditional holistic journeys created by a local 11th generation Tibetan Amchi doctor, just the ticket after days spent trekking, horse riding, rock climbing, cycling and much more.
