The Ariya is a nice, modern and comfortable Hotel that is located near Thimphu city center. Our small group tour had booked this Hotel for 2-nights which gives us enough time to explore the many scenic sites that Thimphu has to offer. As can be seen in the photos, the standard room that we had was spacious, modern, comfortable and clean. Also, the bath was also spacious and clean with a large glass enclosed shower. Highly recommend this Hotel while visiting Thimphu.

It was our first stop. As soon as we walked in we felt welcome. All staff are incredibly friendly and happy to see us. The hotel was fairly quiet as we came in a fairly quiet season. The room was nice and well heated . The area is nothing really (you won’t go out for a walk). Breakfast and dinner buffets are good. The gym is not good but at least they made the effort to have one. There’s a spa with massage, sauna and steam room (we didn’t use it).

We stayed in Ariya for a night. It's a beautiful property with comfortable rooms. We enjoyed room service here and food is good. Only con we felt that breakfast spread doesn't have much choices and is quite small. But I felt this is the problem mostly in Bhutan. Not much food choices. Staff is really nice and provide good service. Overall we loved our stay here.
