All your tiredness will go if you look at the beautiful river in front of the hotel. The rooms are Ok and the food is very good. Like all other Bhutan people , the hotel staffs are always smiling to help you.

This is one of the best located properties I have visited so far. Right next to the river, you get to hear the sound of running waters all day through. Step out of the hotel and you are right on the river bank soaking your feet in the chilling waters - really exciting especially for the kids in the family.... More

We recently stayed in this hotel on our trip to Punakha. The rooms certainly require refurbishment, but this is compensated with the excellent views and good food. Stay here if you like excellent views and can compromise with average rooms. We had an issue with the extra bed and was only resolved after complaining a number of times. It is... More

A tad bit far from the city. Its located just near the river and you have an EXCELLENT view in the outdoor seating (garden) of the restaurant (you can sip your coffee sitting beside the river). Not all the rooms are same, so you need to check carefully while booking for the rooms. We got one from the top floor... More

If you chose Damchen Resort as your stay option in Punakha, you've made a good choice. 1) Punakha is warmer (than Thimpu, Paro, Ha..) and hence living besides the river with the option of water frolic just a minute away is quite worth it. Other Hotels in Punakha are all on the hills (just like so many other hotels in... More

We stayed at the Damchen Resort for 2 nights in May as part of our trip to Bhutan. We had a large, nice room on the second floor with a view of the river. The grounds were well-kept and we thought the restaurant meals were good. The negatives were a weird loud noise coming from the roof every so often,... More

the hotel itself was OK but nothing great. there's a big car-park next to the market. dining room, utterly without character. we were on the ground floor which is beside the river which would have great views. However because lots of people sit out here to drink there's little privacy in the room with people wandering past and talking loudly... More

Despite the good location, the hotel is properly managed and maintained. They charge high but worth no value. Rooms are shabby and not neat. We stayed in Oval Delux room. Restaurant and food quality is Bad. Indian Tea costs Rs 144/cup !!! probably a record for such a hotel.
