That hotel I really can recommend. Its situated on an hill from where you have an overlooking over the beautiful valley of Bumthang. The rooms are big and well furnished, and very agreable, they have heaters. Everywhere its absolutely clean. The staff is very kind, helpful, skilled and very well educated. The food is variable and really excellent. The dining... More

I enjoyed my stay here in a very large and comfortable demi-suite. The furnishings and views were lovely. Our room was well-heated and the bathroom was roomy, immaculate, and well appointed. There was no elevator; so think about that if you have trouble with stairs. The restaurant featured a really nice buffet with commanding views out the windows. This is... More

I stayed at the resort for the nights of 21 to 23 May 2016. To give the hotel its dues, it not really as bad as I first thought. This hotel is by no means anywhere close to the quality of the hotels that I would usually choose. It’s never a good impression when you check into the hotel and... More

Good service staff with a smile & helped me with my Kira too. Hotel room are ok but they don't change your towels etc. unless you surrender your room key. Kitchen staff are obliging to our request of food cooked to our taste - no butter in the fried veggie, less oil & salt. Great view of the Himalayan ranges... More

Excellent Property but approach road is very bad. Service was OK. Food needs to improve. But their manager was too cooperative and excellent. They need to keep their spa and pool table up. The property isoverpriced for the time being

Arrived for a one night to find ourselves to be the only guests. The place looked tired, outdated and one that could do with a dose of character, which was otherwise lacking. The front office had some smiling staff that set us up for drinks at the lobby next to the fireplace. Food was quite okay too, no complaints there.... More

Ok, we were the only people staying in a 40 odd room hotel, so it was a bit like the Shining. Room was great, sensational views, food was fine in that Bhutanese way.

This hotel was rather run down, but enjoyable for all that. We came to Bumthang for the festivals (which were great) not to sit inside a hotel. We stayed in one of the small buildings away from the main complex. The floor in our room was spongy, but the three room heaters were really efficient - just as well as... More

We recently spent 6 nights at the Yu-Gharling Resort/hotel. Our room (204) was spacious, very comfortable, and had a great view of the valley. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
