The rooms are not clean. At night there was some noice over our head which were not from human beings. You can guess what it could be. For dinner We could not order what we wanted. We had to take the buffet because there were more than 15 people they said. Of all hotels we had, this was the only...

The rooms we were given were very small and uncomfortable. They ha not made preparations or 3 person in each room although they had been given the requirements well in advance. The resort location and layout was goo. Food was satisfactory

We stayed in 2 adjacent Oval rooms. We arrived at around 2 p.m. there and they could not serve as lunch as their lunch time was over. This is a little different from other places in Bhutan where they are very much flexible with timing based on customer's convenience. Anyways we managed with their snacks menu which has pretty good...

Stayed there during our trip to Bhutan in May 2016. It is wonderful drive to Punakha from Thimphu through the Do chu la pass. You require separate permits to visit these parts of Bhutan - classified as restricted areas - and generally any part of Bhutan other than Thimphu and Paro. These permits can be obtained from Thimphu and not...

Great location by the riverside. But looks a bit run down. Big rooms but average maintenance. The bathroom was very basic with rusted and leaking taps. Food was ok, they have a set meal plan. The riverside can be made better with planned greenery. Pleasant staff. Free wifi only in the lobby. Average hotel but for the amount they charge,...

We absolutely loved our stay at this charming resort. Excellent facilities, fantastic service and an incredible location, right by the river. We used it as a base for trips to Punakha Dzong and nearby places to visit, e.g. Chime Lakhang, and it is within a walking distance to a very charming temple and Chorten. The food served in the charming...

We stayed here twice on our trip to Bhutan. Very nice location by the river, and very friendly staff. Rooms are small, but nice. Bathrooms aren't great and need to be refurbished. Food is ok, and it's possible to order some extra dishes like chapati / chilli cheese.

The best part about this hotel is the location .It is by the river side. We stayed here only for one night but we wished we stayed here for longer because the location is just too beautiful , peaceful and calm. The rooms were neat and clean as well but the bathrooms were too tiny. There was no outlet for...
