I liked the interior decoration of the hotel. Besides, It's on the hill so we could see the wide scenery of the city. The room and bathroom are clean but the light in the room is not that bright enough for my eyes and no hair dryer in the bathroom however we can borrow from the hotel. The dining room... More

We had a travel agent arrange our entire Bhutan visit, which made things so very easy. Paro was our first stop, and we were met at the airport by our guide, Pema Namgay, who took us straight to Gangtey Palace Hotel to check in. I love that this hotel truly was once a palace, and our suite was the Governor... More

I stayed 2 nights at the Gangtey Palace in Paro. It was a great stay. It was low season so there were few travelers there. The hotel overlooks the stunning Paro Valley. Gangtey Palace is not located downtown, but a 5 minute drive (or so) above town. It is very quiet here with great views. The staff here are exceptional.... More

A palace transformed into a hotel, Gangtey Palace is an iconic place with a touch of history, royalty and oodles of beauty. Close to Paro airport, this property is nestled in a stunning location surrounded by mountains, overlooking a beautiful valley. The wooden structure with a well manicured garden beckons you. Intricate wooden carvings, Bhutanese tapestry work adorn the walls.... More

This hotel provides taste of Bhutan's culture and architecture which cannot be matched with other options providing only amenities. Staff was very polite and helpful, specially the manger, Mr Tila who provided with lot of information and contacts for our onwards journey as well. Highly recommended for tourists who enjoy traditional setup and customs. Highlight is view from room.

This fancy gem has fabulous views and a warm welcome within. The rooms are very spacious with lovely furnishings which make it feel very homely. There's piping hot water and lovely baths to relax in after a steep climb to Tigers Nest in the daytime. Dinner is a buffet style of tasty traditional Bhutanese cuisine and a few western dishes.

Gangtey Palace was our first hotel stay in Bhutan and delivered above expectations. We stayed in a deluxe room in the main tower. Wonderfully spacious room, decorated beautifully. Bathroom also huge - a bit simple but more than adequate. Great views from the relaxing outdoor area and gardens overlooking Paro dzong. Restaurant in separate building also with great views. Food...

Gangtey Palace is a fantastic Hotel located on the hill with great views of the lovely hills & paddy fields of Paro. Also one can see the Paro Dzong located on the other side. The moment one enters this sprawling property which is set in 15 acres of gardens and apple orchards, you feel blessed & in lap of nature... More
