This is no doubt a beautiful property around 20-30 min from city's main market. It's quite serene and certainly a good pick for folks, who like nature at its best . My family and I stayed here for 2 days in 3 nearby rooms . Now, here are my two cents Pros- 1. Check-ins were smooth 2. No adjoining rooms/cabins so you do get your privacy Could improve on - Somewhere I see a lag in service standards .. the response time to address guest requests ..bartender not available at the counter .. things like getting the door for the guests(esp when their hands are full).. If/when these small but important wrinkles are ironed out, I believe this property can scale and elevate to intl. standards

No wonder “National Geographic” has awarded this hotel one of the very few “unique stays” in the world. The hotel lies on a beautiful property (with a distant view of the mystical“Tiger’s Nest”); everything about the hotel is beautiful: from the elegant Bhutanese style main building to the tea house, spa/gym, and various gardens including the archery field The food and wines were delicious. The rooms are fantastic- spacious, modern with a Bhutanese touch, a comfortable balcony, and all the facilities of a 5 star hotel. It was a shame that the swimming pool wasn’t finished. One opportunity for improvement is the gym equipment- it’s there but not that good. Need better treadmill and elliptical, as well as a bench for dumbbells.

crystal clear mornings around minus 2 Celsius and sunny days of around 15 degrees Celsius were enjoyed over 2 nights. These rooms are a little rustic and yet warm and cosy and with a stunning view as they are set high above Paro. I recommend this hotel as its well located to the Airport and Tigers Nest.

This hotel and grounds summarizes Bhutan- calm, beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. The rooms are spread across several bungalows. Each room is large with beds, seating area, and desk area. The bathrooms are large and have plenty of fresh towels. There is a turn down service too. The restaurant has a comprehensive menu and excellent selection at breakfast. A nice spa for massages/facials is available The hotel is in a special isolated grounds, so you need a short 5 minute drive to downtown Paro.

Sure, you could go to the other swanky 5 star international properties dotted around the country but would you when you can stay here? The property itself is a treat for the senses and any photo you see of it online just does not do it justice. The riot of colours and the intricate hand-carved beams are amazing. Our room was not in the main building, but in the smaller low-rise buildings behind the main property. It was so incredibly spacious that we thought we were upgraded to a suite! Very tastefully decorated with blonde wood throughout and stone flooring in the bathrooms. Heating is provided via the floor which is a nice touch - very relaxing after a long day of being on your feet. Just keep in mind that it takes 24hrs for the temperature to change. So don't expect instant results after fiddling with the temp gauge. We opened our windows to accommodate this. Just to note that the floodboards creak. They creak everywhere in the property but I think it's part of the charms - the wood was re-purposed from an old monastery. If creaking floorboards bother you, opt for rooms on the top floor. Bathroom is well appointed with all your basic 5* amenities. My only complaint is that the toilet and bathroom are together, along with the mini bar and cupboards. It's just one long room. Can be a tad awkward in the mornings. Meals are a good blend of Western, Bhutanese and Indian. We opted for Bhutanese each time and were never disappointed. Good selection of drinks at the bar, catering to most tastes. They even had the local Ara. Service was excellent - friendly and efficient. We had an early morning flight so they packed us some fresh fruit, a basic cucumber sandwich with some juice, apologizing profusely that they couldn't offer us a hot beverage (we honestly were just happy with our packed food!) Had the most delightful stay! And would highly recommend it!

I understand it’s a classical property but wooden flooring makes lots of noise. When ur toddler is sleeping a little noise can break his sound sleep. Authentic Bhutanese property . U can click lot of beautiful pictures. Vegetarian breakfast menu is ok not much options. Dinner menu was excellent. Staff is good n helpful

Enjoyed our stay here. Great quality meals and comfortable spacious rooms. Courteous staff and great facilities. Will be better again when the swimming pool under construction is completed. Highly recommended. Timber floors are a bit creaky so being on the top level is an advantage. Barking dogs at night were not as much a problem here as in some other Bhutanese places.
