The hotel is located on the bank of the river as a result one gets excellent view of the river and the mountain range.It is an excellent experience to walk in the hotel compound area along the river side and also one can take walk during the day on the bank of the river. The sunrise for the mountains is... More

This hotel was a bit more rustic than we expected, but it was lovely to have a beer by the river while waiting for dinner. The rooms were small, but relatively clean. Some items seemed a bit dirty/old, but not sure there are many 3/4 star options in the area and the location was excellent. The food was decent in... More

Stayed for a night and feel this was only low point of our Bhutan visit. I understand Punakha has limited capacity and our agent could get only standard room but room itself was big letdown. I have stayed in much smaller rooms in Japan hotels and find there is no effort by management to maintain certain basic standards. Loose windowpane... More

The hotel in my opinion is of 3-star quality. It provides a comfortable bed with clean toilet. The restaurant serves reasonable meals, the staff were polite. It was a bit frustrating when we found out that there was no water and no wifi during check in, but that was rectified later that day. The hotel is located just by the... More

Let me start with saying that I am giving it a 5 instead of 4 as its current score do not reflect its true value. I arrived here with a lot skepticism but left with a feeling to return here once again. To set your expectations - if you are looking for something plush, this is not the place and... More

I was in Punakha for the Saturday market and this place, right across the car park from the market, served generic Bhutanese tourist food - but a great location on the riverside. Not a bad dining option. I didn't see the rooms, though the resort premises look nice.

The resort is located right at the bank of river. Delux rooms have an excellent view of river. Also they have small sit outs in the resort which allows you to enjoy the river view. Overall a nice place to stay in Punakha.

I spend 2 nights here while we visited sights around. We had asked for the oval rooms which come with a great view of the river and the mountains - my favorite thing about our stay! If you plan to stay here make sure you get one of these rooms. The rooms otherwise are basic but clean and spacious. The... More
