Beatiful lodges to stay for one or two nights. The people are friendly, the food is good and the rooms perfect. At the end of the day a nice beer in the sun on the terras. The dzong is watching us. A good place to be in Jagar / Bumtang. Try it yourself.

This is a beautiful lodge, built in the Bhutanese style. The people here are very friendly and kind and I left feeling they are true friends. The food here was very good,( I asked for the spicy Bhutanese food that they eat ), and it was the only place in Bhutan that I got fresh ground coffee. The Bhumthang area... More

Jakar village resort is family run hotel located right near the Jakar Dzong. This is an old property but well maintained. Food was good.... More

Our room was upstairs with an enclosed back porch with a view of the more rural part of the village, The place was clean and nice however there were mothballs in the sink, behind the sink, in the closet and my wife objected to the smell. We looked for and found most of them. Apparently the Buddhist won't kill anything,... More

We stayed here for 2 days. We had taken standard rooms which not so spacious however still managable. Rooms are small with good interior and basic amenities.However the service is not that great!One of the main problem there is no phone in the rooms hence it is difficult to order for room service. In case you need anything you have... More

I spent 2 nights in the first week of May, 2014 in Jakar Village Lodge with my family. It was a memorable experience to stay at Jakar Village Lodge and experience the pristine beauty of this valley. With excellent hospitality from the hosts, the experience turned magical! When I checked in, I realized that all 3 rooms were on the... More

A delightful place ... a place where the owner clearly is (rightfully) proud of the lodge and his country. Food is outstanding. Not many places where one can say that we were in the place that the King has visited!

This was tied for last place during our ten nights hotel stays in Bhutan. We stay here in March 2014. The food was terrible and they could not get the internet to work.
