Best place to stay and enjoy the scenic beauty of Paro

Review of Mandala Resort
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 7 Jun 2015
If you are romantic and nature lover Bhutan Mandala Resort is the best place to stay in Paro. Located on the slope of a hill the hotel offers great view of the Paro Valley. Rooms are clean and well-decorated and appointed with soft bed and quilts, wardrobe, TV set, air conditioner and a well-equipped attached bathroom. We stayed on the upper level in the right wing of the building from where the dining room is quickly accessible. Hotel's staffs are friendly young girls.

The market is far from the hotel. It is difficult to walk up the steep winding roads to the resort. You'll always need a car for up and down. So, this is not a place for shopaholics. :)

    We spent three nights here and loved the view from our room and balcony over the valley below. The staff here is wonderful. Our guide asked the chef if he would give us a cooking demonstration of ema datsi and he gladly obliged. It isn't often one gets invited to the kitchen. Our room was a nice size, with a refrigerator, comfortable beds and a huge bathroom. Lots of table space. We helped fix their room wi-fi and it worked really well. There aren't a lot of choices for breakfast, but the food is good. The only problem is that the laundry prices are outrageously high.

    This is a large relatively new hotel which has bungalow type accommodation. We were given a "bungalow" room on the second tier which does not have any views. In fact, all you see from your terrace is the top part of the roof of the bungalows in row 1. All it needed to take to offer views to the second and third tier is to put these up by say two feet (or tier 1 down by 2 feet). As it is, tier 1 bungalows have views whereas the rest do not. the rooms are average and basic. The bathrooms are a nightmare because whilst there is a bath, the shower is placed outside the bath on the tiled floor area so the whole bathroom gets wet when you shower - why on earth they did this is beyond me. Breakfast is a basic affair. The road leading to the hotel (just before you get to the actual hotel road) is bumpy and in a mess. Wifi is only available in reception area so this is where people congregate. Seems to be very popular with Chinese tourists (by the bus-load) and I think we were the only non-Chinese couple there. Thankfully we only stayed here one night which was one night too many.

    Mandala Resort is located in a hill overlooking the Paro valley. The rooms are specious and beautiful. From the window you get the view of the Paro valley. The management and the staffs are very helpful and service is excellent. They also have cottages.
    They have flat screen television in every room. For now their wifi service is limited to reception area and restaurant.
    They have buffet service as well as À la carte. Foods are delicious.
    After a hectic day of sight seeing the resort offers you the comfort that your body badly needs. They have 24 hours running hot water. As it can get really chilly at night in Paro, they have room heaters in the room also in the bathroom (you will be thankful for that). We stayed there for three nights and had a great time too. Highly recommended for the travelers.

    Just an amazing resort with an excellent view of the Paro valley. Clean and trendy rooms. What impressed me was the service - just amazing people and for a vegetarian, they just knew what to serve.

    They had arranged for a cultural show one evening and it was a lovely experience.

    This hotel is set on a hill overlooking Paro and you have stunning views all around you.

    The reception area is set up with lots of comfy chairs and sofas. This makes for somewhere good to relax when surfing the internet, connecting with family and friends back home, etc, as wifi is really only available in the main building....although I did get a bit of a signal during my second stay here when I was given a room in the main building.

    The staff in the restaurant are warm and friendly. They enjoy conversing with the guests but also seem to know when to withdraw. The food was good and they added a little bit of variety over the standard fare offered to tourists throughout the region. We even had dimsum one night.

    This was one of the few hotels which had televisions in the rooms. I found one channel showing very old episodes of American comedies and serials - a good trip down memory lane.

    The rooms were clean and comfortable. The bathrooms were clean too and had both shower and bath.

    Room tip: I think all rooms have a view of the valley. Rooms in the main building may just get you a faint in-room wifi access
