In Swoyambhu, just as you’re heading towards the Ring Road from the bottom of the hill, look to the left and you’ll find this wonderful health club and swimming pool. One wouldn’t expect so much space in this crowded area, yet here’s a club with many services and a decent sized swimming pool. Although the club was opened several years ago, the well designed restaurant & café was opened recently adding great value to this ideally located club. It’s in close proximity to,

Dallu, Chauni and the surrounding areas like Thulo Bharyang. You will first encounter the Zumba hall as you are entering the club. Marshyangdi Health Club offers a sauna and steam bath besides the swimming pool and to relax after a swim is the intriguingly named “The Safe House Restaurant & Bar”. The café opens at 8 am and is open until 9:00 pm but on Fridays, they may stay open till 10:00 pm when there are usually more customers staying late. They have a vast menu that includes an English Breakfast, appetizers like Crispy Fried Mushrooms for vegetarians and for non-vegetarians there are items like Mongolian Chicken Drum Stick. There are also Nepali appetizers followed by main courses that offer a variety of momos, sizzlers, fish dishes, pork chop, Prawn in Szechuan Sauce etc. Pasta and noodles are also available. Coffee is good and includes Caramel Macchiato. The pool opens at 8 am and entrée rates are Rs 350 for adults and Rs 250 for children. Zumba hall is open in the morning and then in the evening.
