Our first two nights in Bhutan were spent here. We had a lovely welcome, beautiful rooms and magnificent views of the valley and the distant mountains. The staff are delightful and the service was charming. It was cold in the mornings with a thick December frost one day, but it was warm and welcoming inside. Each room has an electric heater and the beds are comfortable and warm. The hot water took a time to arrive but that was never an issue. This was the perfect introduction to Bhutan!

The place itself is serene, surrounded by hills and paddy fields....in the morning you can have a stroll along the riverside....the people are really nice, always ready to help you out, can get customized food as well...we asked for less oily food as we had elders with us, they obliged....Thank you Sereng and team....

A huge sense of calmness, comfortable and nicely designed rooms with great views (after all the lodge nestles in the midst of paddy fields), generous lashings of good old-fashioned hospitality, friendly smiling faces (Shering, Tashi, Maniram, Ishai, Ishai’s sister, and the others from the team – we terribly miss you all), and last but not the least, cuisine that will keep your lips smacking. I stayed at the Village Lodge for 9 days – yes, it was that peaceful – and I could see myself emerge as a different person at the end of my stay. This lodge is designed for people who love nature, and are somewhat of a peaceful disposition. Yes, it has drawbacks – the Wi-Fi strength could be better – but really, would you fret about the Wi-Fi connectivity in a place like Bhutan? The idea is to connect with nature, not with social media/work. Having said that I did finish a presentation by simply moving to my room to a wooden table by the side of a mini apple orchard. A bird even gave me company for a couple of hours. The Paro Chu river just outside the property is perfect for long walks in the evening. And you can hear the cheerful babbling of the pebbly river from the rooms too.

Village lodge ambiance will ensure you get a complete village feel. Beautiful apple trees & green fields will mesmerize you. However, there could be improvement on below points: -Better breakfast options instead of same breakfast everyday. -No matter we chose you for stay, but at the end one still needs a wifi to stay in touch with near and dear ones. I was travelling solo & during my stay, there was no wifi on 3 consecutive days in my room. - Rooms are basic & disjoint from the restaurant area, so they charge additional for a room service even if you want a cup of tea to your room early morning. - There was a fire incident during my stay just next to my room and it took some time for the care taker to come to scene. The care taker & security were sleeping away from the guest room area & were caught unaware of the fire until I informed !! Certainly guests security & safety should be a prime concern before any other service.

For sure, this is one of the best lodges we stayed at in Bhutan. Comfortable spacey rooms with character. Very comfortable mattress. Bath and shower (no hair dryer). Good food during breakfast and dinner. Serving good espresso, latte and cappuccino.... Indoor and outdoor places to relax and enjoy a drink.

Stayed in the lodge for 3 nights and had awsome time amidst the nature. The lodge has excellent hospitality management and makes you feel important and home. The staff girls to be precise, are cheerful and accommodative. Yes, I would like them to have on-line payment facility at the lodge to facilitate card payments. View of the paro dzong and museum at night from the room is awsome. Advise all to go to the lodge and rejuvenate. Food is very satisfying.

The hotel is in front of Paro river in between fields. The staff is very helping and supporting. They had limited food options and its better to share your requirements/ choices in advance. The food was OK, considering other places where we had food in Bhutan. The rooms are big with nice views, flat-screen TV, bathtubs etc which all make the stay very comfortable.

The Village Lodge is located slightly outside of Paro in a beautiful, idyllic rural setting. The rooms are large and comfortable, and the private bathrooms contain all of the amenities including a huge soaking tub, vanity sink, shower and toilet. Unique to the bathroom, is a series of trough designs containing stone pebbles in the floor that gives one the feeling of walking in a mountain stream. There are plugin heaters in the rooms to provide heat at night as the building is not heated otherwise. Different areas in the lodge feature antique farming implements, old baskets and storage chests, saddles and tack, etc. The dining room consists of one very large square table as does the morning breakfast room. The food served here is absolutely delicious, The head chef is from Kathmandu and with his two Sou Chefs, has the equivalent of European training and knows how to put together a meal that would tickle anyone’s pallet. The staff is accommodating, efficient and personable and always willing to help. There is a common room in another building across the courtyard that was very welcome after a day of trekking or climbing to the Tigers Nest Monastery. There was always a crackling fire in the fireplace and drink service for beer and wine with some nibbles. What was really unique about this lodge was the fact that we were dressed in native costume the last evening of our stay and entertained by the staff and some other locals in dance and song recalling the history and culture of the Bhutanese people. This lodge is absolutely charming and wonderful and we highly recommend it to anyone coming to Paro.
