Lemon Tree Hotels has signed a license agreement with Bhangeri Durbar Resort for a 51-room hotel in Nepal.

The property, named Bhangeri Durbar Resort, will be operated by Carnation Hotels, the subsidiary and management unit of Lemon Tree.

To be located at Nagarkot, the hotel is slated to open by early next year.

It is our second signing for a hotel in the country, which we feel holds immense business and tourism potential.”
