Like many folks, we stayed for two nights at Le Meridien Paro Riverfront as a "staging area" for our climb to the famous Tiger's Nest. The hotel definitely delivered on those expectations. The location and grounds are stunning ... right on a beautiful clear river with majestic mountains as the backdrop. All of the rooms have views of the river and the views are a great way to begin and end your day. The rooms were as expected for this type of property - comfortable with well appointed bathrooms. The staff was professional and attentive as one would expect from a Le Meridien Property. The lobby was a terrific place to relax with wonderful views and a bar with cocktails and snacks. The restaurant had an expansive buffet with varied cuisine options ... I enjoyed the full variety while my traveling partner was actually getting over a stomach issue from the days preceding our visit and she was able to find "milder" foods that her stomach could handle. While the Tiger's Nest climb is accessible to a wide range of ages and fitness levels, it is nonetheless strenuous, so we felt that it was important to stay at a hotel property where we could have a comfortable and enjoyable experience so that we could get the most out of our climb. Le Meridien delivered on those expectations. Our room was quiet and comfortable which enabled a good nights sleep. We were able to relax in the pool / sauna / steam room before and after our climb. Perhaps most outstanding was that the breakfast staff - without us even asking - went above and beyond and packed a container full of breads, muffins and fruit for us to enjoy on our climb! Le Meridien Paro is worth the stay regardless of your activities, but for us, it was a particularly good choice which enabled us to be well rested and prepared for our Tiger's Nest trek as well as providing a great place to relax and celebrate our successful climb!…
The place like all Bhutan are relaxing They have a nice lobby and restaurant Nice river in the back The tour company knows what hotel is best for you People are very nice there I used raven tours a local company from there
Room is ok. Not much more. Manager is upfront on the coronavirus as a guest as we checked in had but had left. The massage was good but had better. The food looked like wide but was only Indian curry. The service as so so. The grounds were good and the views were good. Only good for 1 night. Many if they can visit Tigers Nest
We have just came back from a few nights at Le Meridien Thimphu, so of course we had to compare. First of all. The hotel setting is perfect. That is what you want, so you can really take in the beautiful unspoiled nature of the country of Bhutan. The hotel is modern and clean and has definitely a sense of tranquility to it. The design really compliment the view of the river. The only downside was the service. Maybe it was because we were treated so well as Lifetime Titanium Elite at the Thimphu location that it was maybe a let down. Both hotel are very nice.One is a city hotel the other one way on the outskirt. Great location to visit the Tiger's Nest.
My husband and I chose this hotel as part of our honeymoon itinerary in Bhutan. We were greeted by the front desk staff, Deki, who took the initiative to introduce the hotel amenities and services to us. We were most impressed with the Executive Chef, Tanuj. When we arrived for our breakfast buffet, he approached us and offer us chicken broth and congee. This is very well appreciated as both the chicken soup and congee was super tasty and kept us warm during the cold season in Bhutan. He is also very attentive to our requests and was initiative to suggest a menu for our dinner. On top of which, he fulfilled the requests of dumplings perfectly to which both my husband and I appreciate it very much. As we have to catch a very early flight in the morning, the hotel was kind enough to arrange for a packed breakfast for us to takeaway with. The whole F&B experience made the stay very memorable. There were some minor hiccups in the rooms as we experienced sudden electrical faults during our first night. We highlighted to the front desk and they took actions immediately. Thankfully, it did not reoccur on the second night.…
A pleasant stay at the end of our hectic trip. This gave us opportunity to relax and gear up for the hectic schedule that awaited us. The overall experience was good and the property lived up to all expectations from a 5-star property. There was nothing much to do at the property apart from usual spa, gym etc. This appeared more as a business hotel rather than a resort that we had assumed. Perhaps a cultural evening or help in planning few off-beat activities in a tourist destination like Paro would have been wonderful.
The hotel is the exact replica of its name 'Riverfront'. Once you are in hotel, you won't go out as the view from hotel is breathtaking and bonfire will complete your evening. Smiling faces, great hospitality and tasty food. Thank you to Bikash at coffee shop for taking care of us. We would love to come back again and again.
Just a short stay at Le Méridien Paro. Smiley and happy face all staff I met here . Thank you Jinu Varghese front office Manager for your care and love during my stay. This property have wonderful view of river front and it’s in valley with wonderful views around.
We stayed at Le Meridian for three nights at the end of our tour around west Bhutan. The welcome upon our arrival was lovely, as was the treatment throughout our stay. The highlight for us was the attention we received from the Chef de Loyalty - Tanuj Bahuguna. Having arrived in Bhutan approximately one week earlier, my husband was recovering from an upset stomach. Consequently he was avoiding foods that were too spicy. The "tourist menu" we indulged in during our tour (to that point) was great, providing a great variety of fresh food. We did notice however that the buffet was predominantly serving spicy Indian style mains. They also served salads and pastas which we decided would be a more sensible option for us. Tanuj approached my husband and after discovering his stomach issues prepared an a la carte style beef dish for the two of us, which was incredible. He mentioned that he may not be around the second night (as he was overseeing a conference dinner) but would ensure his staff were ready to create another meal for us. We were pleased to see he did make it in time for our second dinner. Another exquisite meal arrived. He also advised us that a complimentary "take-away" breakfast could be organised for our walk to the Tiger's Nest the following day. We selected sandwiches, danishes, fruits, muffins, water. All of which were carefully packed and ready for us at 6:00am the following morning. On our third night we did not see Tanuj when we arrived for dinner, nevertheless we had a lovely pasta meal. And let's not forget the desert bar:Tiramisu, self serve icecream etc etc. Thankyou to all the staff at Le Meridian, but a special thanks to Tanuj who went out of his way to make our stay extra special.…
Excellent Hotel and built next to the Paro river. Every room has a view to the river which provides some picturesque views. Nothing beats the beautiful sight of a river as your first sight in the morning. The restaurant is good and provides a excellent mix of multiple cuisines. For those looking for Indian cuisine (especially given 80% of tourist here are Indians) you will not be disappointed. I personally loved the dessert section which as an excellent spread. Overall service is excellent and I was particularly surprised to see that most of the local staff speak Hindi.
