Hotel was beautiful. Staff was kind and eager to please. We had everything we needed. Restaurants were very good. Also the location was right in town. We hope business picks up for them. Covid seems to have hurt the country very badly. We would return to this establishment

We stayed at Pemako in Thimphu, Bhutan during our visit in March 2024 and it was an absolutely beautiful experience. The property is stunning and the hospitality is so warm and rooted in tradition and warmth. Our stay for the entire duration was extremely comfortable and amazingly looked after by a warm and friendly team. I would like to give a shoutout to Hana, who very graciously welcomed us and made sure everything was comfortable and we were well acquainted with the hotel. She also made sure and checked in for us to have the opportunity to wear the traditional Bhutanese dress and we were very touched with her thoughtfulness. I would also like to give a shoutout to Sonam who was extremely warm and took amazing care of us during our meals at the restaurant. Thank you Pemako for giving us a wonderful experience and we are already planning our round two trip, courtesy the amazing hospitality!

It was wonderful experience staying there. Great ambience, peace, beauty. Near to National Football Stadium main market area is also 5mins away. Opposite market is handicraft market. Room was perfectly lighted and arranged. No foul smell anywhere. Greatest part is having a cultural program every evening and also costumes like Kira and Gho provided by Hotel for attending the program. It was super experience to witness the cultural folk songs and dances of Bhutan with prominent artist from Bhutan cultural group. Also the staff was well dressed, behaved and mannered. Haina attend us greatly her hospitality was excellent.

Amazing building full of character in the centre of Thimpu. The cultural event was a highlight, it was both colourful and beautifully done. The room we had was large and well furnished with all the facilities you could wish for. The staff couldn't be more helpful.

The entire team at Pemako made our honeymoon stay a very special one. Tshering (Hana) deserves a special mention for her wonderful and friendly service throughout. The food was delicious at both restaurants, the cultural shows were enjoyable featuring local performers and the room was extremely comfortable. We highly recommend a stay here!

A truly wonderful hotel where we were treated like royalty at all times. All the staff were very attentive and particular mention must be made of Hana who really 'made' our holiday with her welcome. We have happy memories of a blessing from a monk and traditional dancing in the Hotel courtyard.
