Room was great with a small balcony. From balcony the Punak Chhu was visible ( not clearly for trees) . The resort is well maintained , clean and... More

This resort is right close to the main Thimpu taxi stand. The resort is beautifully located on the river. I saw people doing River Rafting as well there. The food is average and have very few options available on the menu.

We were told that there are no A la carte options and went with horrible buffet. Later saw the staff taking food orders and serving it on the tables. As the resort... More

This beautiful resort has the best location possible! From your room, which has a beautiful little balcony, standing there, you see a hugely wide river running just about 10 mts ahead of you! and the over whelming mountains! The rooms are very basic, but comfortable. A very homely atmosphere. I felt like I could spend the rest of my life... More

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
