Twenty minutes from Bhutan’s capital city, you’ll find The Postcard Dewa. Nestled in a forest, this Bhutanese mountain hideout is just close enough to take in the city of Thimphu, but far enough from the bustle. With no more than 15 luxurious rooms, the hotel is the perfect place to wind down in the lap of nature and enjoy pristine views of the Khasadrapchu valley and Wang Chhu River. All of the hotel's 13 rooms and two luxury suites are set against the backdrop of dramatic mountain vistas. Ranging from 995 sq ft to 2,100 sq ft the rooms are generously spaced. Rich in natural light and traditional details, they even come with their own private sit-outs from which to take in the surrounds. The Dewa Suite, our most impressive yet, even offers a private garden, terrace and an intimate dining gazebo — perfect for precious time with the family. The spread at The Postcard Dewa is deeply influenced by Bhutan’s culinary heritage. The menu features traditional dishes as well as a fine selection of locally-brewed beers and spirits. All of which can be enjoyed al-fresco or in the hotel’s dining room. The Postcard Dewa’s idyllic mountain surrounds make it the perfect place to slow down with meditation and yoga. Therapies at the spa include treatments that borrow from traditional Bhutanese practices like a hot stone bath, that’s perfect for sore muscles. Fitness conscious guests can also enjoy a workout in the gym or a relaxing swim in the temperature-controlled swimming pool. Mountains and monasteries make up much of the travel itinerary here. Take the lush hiking trails to ancient Buddhist temples or tour the capital city’s many sacred sites and colorful market stalls.

The hotel offers excellent accommodation and outstanding food. The service is excellent and they organised a picnic on the banks of the river which made the holiday very special. The rooms are very comfortable and floor heating makes the room very cozy. The staff made us feel very special especially Harsh and F&B Manager and the GM TJ.

From the time booking was made Postcard has made our experience unforgettable. Right from airport pick up ( Kuenzang +975 17 29 43 20) to reception the process was flawless. TJ Manager made the daily itinerary to your preferences and Tashi at the desk was truly exceptional. Soon the guide Tshering (+975 77 40 40 10) came and the journey began. Amazing warmth and efficiency. By the evening we knew who was bent upon increasing our weight Chef Harsh knew what we wanted. From the brownest bread ever known which I never had before ; Thupka; Snow trout to pork vindaloo. Just out of the world. And had everything of our choice and taste laid out. Super excellent. Food was amazing and service was flawless. Meticulous housekeeping. And don’t miss their chips in room. Home made. And classy crispy. We may not come again but that will be our loss. Many will after reading the above. And just don’t forget Kuenzang and Tshering. They are awesome. And also Tiger. You will live him. You will see his pic.

The Postcard Dewa is a gorgeous, sumptuous retreat in the hills of Thimphu. Everything was perfect and luxurious, from the beautiful natural surroundings with many birds to the furnishings in the rooms. Chef Hersh delivers wonderful meals of various types of cuisine; Subir keeps all flow seamlessly and remembers guests' preferences. The lovely Tashi at reception assists with any and all questions, with efficiency and kindness. I felt like I was at home at this magnificent location. I cannot wait to return to The Postcard Dewa!

Wow. I was pretty blown away by the Postcard Dewa, I had high expectations but the calibre of service really exceeded them. From arrival, you understand that Postcard is dedicated to providing exactly the experience that you want. Nothing is an inconvenience for the staff. A hilarious example of this was when my daughter requested English Breakfast tea in the morning, but this was misheard, and she got an off-the-menu full english breakfast instead! The fact this wasn't even on the menu was no problem for the staff at all. Food in general was superb, fine dining that utilizes the best of local ingredients with a mixture of western and Asian influences. The dining room itself has a beauty atmosphere and was both cozy but at the same time showcases the incredible views available at the hotel. The rooms are simply gorgeous, the nicest I stayed at in Bhutan, and filled with so many small touches that showed me management has thought deeply about the guest experience at Postcard Dewa. Complementary snacks and tricks; a tote bag you are encouraged to fill with toiletries; heated tiles; free wireless; lovely dressing gowns and slippers; beautiful murals on the walls, it just goes on and on. The only niggle was that one of our rooms had a rather unpleasant smell coming from the drain in the bathroom - which was otherwise terrific. This could be investigated; the other room was fine. Facilities wise there is a pool, sauna and steam room. I was a little cold for a swim, but my children had a great time. They also loved the four friendly hotel dogs that roam the grounds and are always up for a cuddle or a walk with you. The Dewa has a beautiful walking trail from the hotel that takes you up the sides of the valley, I had a great morning strolling along with the hotel dogs happily galloping beside me. We had a wonderful stay at Postcard Dewa, and I am very interested in staying at some of their other properties now as well.
