Nice location. Stayed for one night in semi deluxe room with great view of Punatsangchu just beside the room. Good place to stay in Punakha. But the restaurant is not recommended at all..... overall food quality okay type, high-priced though.

They might charge you extra for a heater. Bhutan as an area is not that cold, in the winter months if you use a blanket with a comforter, it should be fine. Punakha is lower in altitude and warmer than corresponding areas.
