Stayed for 1 night while visiting the sights in the Punakha region. I don't think that there are many hotels in the area built to Western standards. The property is quite large and the rooms/cottages are built along the hillside overlooking the river. Very pleasant setting and the dining room has a nice view of the river. The staff is pleasant and tries to be accommodating. Wifi is also reasonably strong. Dinner is buffet style and typically one cuisine aimed at the majority of the guests staying there that night. It happened to be Indian when we were there. We would been happy with that, but the staff also brought us a special Western meal (we also sat with our guide and driver who shared the typical Bhutanese cuisine, so we had three meals that night!!). The room was the least appealing element. Ours was large (main room, separate kitchen facilities, and large bath/dressing area) and clean. However, it was showing signs of age and wear (the shower faucet fell off when turned) and we had to unplug items to plug in phone chargers. Could also hear neighbors through the walls, so it made it less pleasant to spend much time in the room. Nothing was unbearable, but just not as pleasant as we were expecting for the location.

We stayed here during out Bhutan trip. This resort is outside of city and at a quiet place with excellent view. On the bank of the river with cottage like rooms. Rooms are clean with good bed and heating facility. Staffs are very helpful and courteous. Overall a very good option to relax and enjoy the beauty of Bhutan.

Everything is nice about this resort and such a good place to unwind and relax. Food is yummy and they offer a nice spread. Big rooms facing the river makes the stay nice and homey. Advisable to check that they offer you the same category of room as you have booked for junior staffs often would do random swaps of rooms. Manager running the place is very helpful and courteous.

Room was pretty basic but we enjoyed the view from our room of the river. It was a bit cold in the mornings and evenings to spend much time on our balcony overlooking the river, but it was a good place to spot a few birds in the garden and river. Dinners were a buffet but pretty good, as was breakfast. Staff were very helpful and laundry service was reasonably priced. We suggested they add another light bulb to the fixture in bathroom as it was quite dimly lit.

This resort consists of a number of detached cottages and has a main building with a few suites. It's right on the side of the river with nice views across at the new city. It's very quiet. It's not within walking distance of any attractions. The cottage consisted of a living/bedroom, bathroom and a half-finished kitchen. This kitchen seemed to be abandoned project. The main room is huge, with a good fan. There is A/C but it wasn't required. It is a bit of a walk up many stairs from the reception-dining room building. There is treated water in the room. There isn't a safe. Breakfast and Dinner are served in the main building. The food was decent. The staff were friendly and efficient.

I would have given 3 star rating but one extra star is for the wonderful manager Kencho and his staff, along with the location. Pros: 1. Staff is great. Manager Kencho goes out of his way to help guests, which is hospitality on a different level. 2. Location is bang on the river bank. The views are beautiful. 3. Staff went out of their way to prepare Bhutanese local cuisine for us on our request without adding extra charges in our bill. Cons: 1. While the cottages/rooms were fine, we had some weird issues in one of the rooms. Shower wasn't working and the faucet had a couple of jets from where water pressure was too much. Adjusting water pressure and temperature became a huge task. I expressed this concern during checkout to manager Kencho and he mentioned that he could have given me a different room if I had spoken about it earlier. He was true to his word and I believed what he said. 2. Food could improve. There was variation in taste on two nights that we stayed there. It's not bad as such, but not mind-blowing either. 3. The email conversation during booking contained a special note about them not accepting INR 500 notes and only accepting INR 100 notes. We managed to take only INR 100 notes for the entire amount and later found out that was not exactly true and they indeed accepted INR 500 notes. On further discussion, we found out that there was a reason behind this that I don't want to disclose here. In short, they accept INR 500 notes as well, as opposed to what's mentioned in the email during booking process.
