We spent two nights in this beautiful Uma property and loved every minute of it. The location perched on the hill with views of the mountains, rice fields and gushing river made this place very special. The ambience was perfect and the service impeccable. All of our meals were wonderful with amazing personal attention from all of the staff. Eventhough...

The setting could not be better. Although it's an awful 5 hour bumpy drive from paro, the view and the property is worth it. The property faces the valley and river. The sun rises directly in front of the hotel and the clouds roll over the mountains surrounding it. Absolutely stunning.

I have little to add about this amazing property and staff so I will add a few tips. 1. Make Punakha part of your Bhutan trip. You could do it in two days but three is better. It makes the drive over easier to take. 2. I am not a vegetarian, but the Butanese food is amazing. Take a chance....
