This hotel lies outside the town of Paro in a secluded valley. The drive up to the hotel goes through the countryside up the hill. The hotel is very well designed. The set-up consists of a central buiilding with 4 buildings with large rooms a bit higher up the hill. We stayed in one of the seperate building. The rooms... More

This hotel is the perfect place to just sit back and relax and take little walks around the hotel. Its one of those place you must visit to lose your self. Its a bit out of the way but what is not in Paro. Me and my family love it, I will definitely go again. Take a good book with... More

Realatively new (2010) hotel, nice design and furnishings with a great location and views (it is a away from the town of Paro, but being in Paro was not a priority). The staff were friendly but not well trained and appeared "amatuer" for this calibre of hotel. The WiFi was really bad. All the staff recommended "one corner" of the... More

This Hotel was our favorite on our 6 1/2 week sojourn through India & Bhutan. After a very long hike to the Tiger's Nest, we were treated to the beauty, comfort, luxury, and delight that is Nak-Sel. Our friends convinced us to give it a try, and we can only say that everything was truly first-class. 2 of 3 of... More

This resort is simply breathtaking. It is on top of a mountain and once you reach the hotel is view is just amazing. The road to the hotel (about 20 minutes) is in a really bad condition but it is completely worth the trip. The resort is surrounded by mountains and you can also see the snow covered mountains at...

I have never been to a more peaceful place. There is a beautiful stream and water fall running right through the middle of the property. The beds are super comfortable and the staff are amazing! It is a MUST STOP!

The Pros - Gorgeous views, large room, very good heating, lovely bhutanese architecture Cons - Away from the town, although this isnt very important as likely you will have a guide & driver at your disposal if you wanted to go into town. Food - a buffet is served for tourists (like in any other Bhutanese hotel).

The field trip to a resort hidden in the forest named NAK-SEL was enjoyable and we can see this place "A Heaven On Earth". The location is bit far from Paro town but it stands on a calm and luxury place where one can really enjoy and appreciate the beauty of nature. The curvings on the wall are fine and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Located thirty minutes from Paro International Airport, Nak-Sel Boutique Hotel & Spa is a luxury retreat where the comforts of man and the presence of nature combine for a peaceful escape in the hills of Bhutan. Nestled on the edge of the national forest and the quiet Ngoba Village, Nak-Sel derives its name from the Dzongka translation of ‘Forest,’ which is only fitting for this Himalayan sanctuary. The main lodge and surrounding cottages of Nak-Sel rest on six acres of apple orchard, nearly 2700 meters above sea level. Each room, cottage and suite boasts unparalleled views of Mount Jumolhari, Taktsang Monastery, Sangachoekhor Monastery, and the Paro valley below. Elaborate hand-carved pillars and beautiful stonework exemplify the essence of Bhutan while tapered mud-brick walls provide insulation and restful silence. Leading Bhutan in energy efficiency, Nak-Sel features LED lighting, highly efficient water heaters, and Swedish under floor heating systems preheated by solar panels. Main construction materials for Nak-Sel are indigenous and locally purchased. Traditional windows, mud-bricks, framework and even furniture were locally crafted here in Ngoba Village, connecting Nak-Sel to the surrounding forest. ... more   less
