“Room with a view and lovely personalized service”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

We had a wonderful three night stay at the Chumey Resort in Bumthang. We stayed in the suite which was very big and had amazing views of the surrounding farms and paddyfields. It was a bit removed from the town (15 min drive), but that was the reason why it was so quiet an peaceful at night.

Bumthang is a bit higher in elevation than Paro, so the nights are colder, and it is a little drier and harder to breathe. But the beds are comfortable (a real king bed, instead of two twins pushed together), and the service is great.

Pema, the manager is lovely and makes it a point to get to know her guests and make sure their requests are granted (if possible). Electricity and the wifi is a bit spotty, but you are in a relatively more undeveloped part of Bhutan, so this was fine.

Food is also generally better than the other hotels/B&Bs in Bhutan. They make their own bread loaves and buckwheat noodles from scratch (we helped to make these with a wooden noodle press that you sit on), and make a very good breakfast of scrambled eggs and homemade pancakes. If you've gone to Bhutan, you'll know this is better than the average food you get! (In general, food is not a focus in Bhutan.)

We also had this really "adventurous" trek from the resort to the oldest (recorded) tree in Bhutan. It was difficult but fun. If you do this, expect to hack your way through bamboo groves, cross rivers on fallen tree logs, and the occasional jungle tick.

All in all a wonderful stay in a lovely resort!

I visited the delightful Chumey Resort for lunch on a recent trip through Bhutan and was taken by the beautiful location, wonderful food, excellent service and the general feeling of peace and serenity. The setting is very picturesque, surrounded by mountains, overlooking fields and an ancient temple. The accommodation and dinning room are quite elegant with wonderful views. There is a very gracious woman managing the resort who provided excellent service and a most amazing lunch of 7 vegetarian dishes at our request even though we were the only guests that day. This tranquil oasis is a perfect place for nature walks, bird watching and historic sites in a most peaceful and serene location.

The suite we stayed in is filled with antiques and spacious. Enormous windows give a vieuw on a temple and summer palace of the king. In the fields the farmers are harvesting the buckweat. The management is among the best of Bhutans. Our suite is great and there are also cottages hidden in the forest behind the hotel.
Fireplace offer resort in the evening.
This is a place to stay 2 nights and hike through the field, meet locals.

Even queen Fabiola from Belgium is said to have stayed in this new hotel.
