IHG Hotels & Resorts, one of the world’s leading hotel companies, is proud to announce the signing of a management agreement with Mansarovar Amusement Park & Resort to develop Crowne Plaza Resort Nepalgunj, Nepal.

Scheduled to open in early 2028, the resort will feature over 100 keys and will further strengthen IHG’s growing portfolio in the SWA region.

Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts is one of the world’s largest premium hotel brands, with more than 520 open or in pipeline properties in major global cities and resort locations. Rooted in a deep understanding of the needs of today’s business traveler, Crowne Plaza’s “Work/Life Blend” features multi-functional spaces where guests can switch effortlessly between work and socialization.

Located in the sub-metropolitan city of Banke District, Nepalgunj is a vibrant and diverse city that serves as a major transport hub for many of the western regions of Nepal. It is a convenient stopover for travellers between Nepal and India, due to its location near the southern border with Bahraich district in Uttar Pradesh.

The city is famous for its treks to the Dolpo Plateau and Jumla region, and offers a strategic stopover spot on the pathway to the Himalayas, offering a unique blend of culture, adventure, and nature. The new resort will be easily accessible from the Nepalgunj Airport and the India-Nepal border, catering to the needs of travellers seeking leisure and blended travel.

Commenting on the announcement, Sudeep Jain, Managing Director, South West Asia, IHG Hotels & Resorts, said, "We are delighted to announce the signing of Crowne Plaza Resort Nepalgunj, further expanding IHG's presence in Nepal. The strategic location of the hotel will provide us with a great opportunity to offer world-class premium hospitality and cater to the demands of our guests across leisure, business and blended travel.”

He added: The signing represents a strategic milestone in IHG's expansion into South West Asia, a region ripe with an increasing demand for world class hospitality. With the strong brand recall of Crowne Plaza, the signing further strengthens IHG’s positioning in Nepal, and highlights our commitment to bring premium offerings to key markets across the region."

Dr. Om Prakash Mishra, Managing Director, Mansarovar Amusement Park & Resort, added, "We are thrilled to partner with IHG Hotels & Resorts to bring the Crowne Plaza brand to Nepalgunj. True to the renowned Crowne Plaza brand, we are confident that the hotel will provide guests with an exceptional experience, combining world-class facilities with the rich cultural heritage of Nepalgunj. We look forward to harnessing the benefits of IHG’s global systems and robust loyalty program to maximise our mutual success."

Once opened, the hotel will offer exceptional culinary experiences across three F&B venues that cater to diverse guest preferences. For guests looking to unwind and relax, the hotel will boast a fitness centre, club lounge, rejuvenating spa, as well as a retail store. To cater to MICE demands, the hotel will be equipped with two meeting rooms, including a ballroom.

IHG currently has 50 hotels operating across five brands in South West Asia, including Six Senses, InterContinental Hotels and Resorts, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn Resort and Holiday Inn Express, and a strong pipeline of 64 hotels due to open in the next 3-5 years.
