Jakar Village lodge is quite impressive for it location and is very well maintained. The rooms are well kept and clean. There is a heater in every room but it just gets too cold in the evenings. I was there for one night and I did not want to leave the place. The owner's are quite friendly and they spend... More

We were impressed that all these 3 star hotels have very comfortable good quality beds with good pillows and comforters. It got pretty cold in the evenings. The owners are great cooks too, so we enjoyed our meals there. Since it's located in the residential area, it's nice and quiet.

This is a small hotel below the impressive Dzong, overlooking some nice fields. Dinner and breakfast at the hotel were the best during our 7 day trip in Bhutan, and included buckwheat pancakes, the specialty in Bumthang (do try them)!. The hotel also offers freshly ground coffee, which was a treat, and tea around a traditional stove (not quite a... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. This hotel is out of town, which makes it quiet and peaceful, but also means that you are not able to explore the town at night. The room was quite nice, shower was ok, but tnot the best. Heating in the room but no TV. Wifi is only available in reception. It worked well... More

Visiting Bhutan is a must in my mind if you are a traveller like myself. In Bhutan it is a must to visit Bumthang region and thus Jakar . In Jakar it is a must to stay in Jakar village lodge . You will stay in a village and in authentic houses build in village style right beside a village... More

We quite liked the place, after a long day out, it was nice to enjoy some tea on our balcony, catching the last few rays of the sun. The room was comfy and clean, the heater did its job well, since the moment you step out the door it's really chilly at night around there! Like many other reviews, the... More

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel and enjoyed it very much. The room was comfortable (except for the shower which had little water pressure) and the food excellent (compared to other hotels in Bhutan that we stayed at and offered pretty much the same food). We even had trout for dinner one evening ! The location of the hotel... More

As soon as you arrive, the first thing you notice is about its proximity to the Jakar Dzong. By the time we arrived, it was pretty late in the evening, drizzling, misty and wet. The Dzong was fully lit and in full view from the Village Lodge. We checked into a room that was warm - with the colors, the... More

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.
