What a great location for a hotel, overlooking the Paro valley. Immediately on arrival you are struck by the lovely scents and aromas, and the warmth of the wood burners....fabulous.
We had a fabulous welcome on both of our visits, a week apart. On our first stay, we had a deluxe room which, ok, wasn't special...and in fact I was a little disappointed as I just thought the room lacked facility and character. We could have been in any 3 or 4 star hotel room in the world.
Our second visit was rewarded with a much bigger room, with fantastic views and some nice extra touches....much better...a room with more modern facility...very pleasant.
The restaurant was excellent. Good,imaginative food, well prepared. Not a huge menu, but we loved the interesting selections...and even a very good wine list (not something you'll find often in Bhutan).
The bar was great. Friendly staff, good snacks, and it was fantastic sitting at the roaring, wood-burning stove. Excellent.
The spa was really good. Quiet and great facilities. The pool was warm and inviting. A great place to relax.
I'd love to say that I'd look forward to going back....sadly Bhutan isn't on a major route! (what a fantastic country though!)
