This hotel is situated by the river and has beautiful gardens. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are very large and clean. There is tv, coffee and tea facilities in the room. There is free wifi in the lobby and restaurant but not in the rooms. A very pleasant stay.

This resort has a lovely garden and great location, we enjoyed a relaxing drink overlooking the river. The rooms are very small but clean. The biggest disappointment was the food, it looked great but was very bland.

The 1 star that i am giving for Damchen is for its location. Situated beside a river it is very nice to look at from outside. But once you get in, you will see that the rooms are very very small, old and not at all good. Neither the food is tasty nor the staff friendly.The only thing that made... More

Although we had booked a Delux room, when we reached in the afternoon, we were given a very small room without even place for a rack to keep bags, or a small table and chairs for sitting. The bathroom had a blade less fan exhaust motor. The window was without any mosquito net and had to be kept close making... More

Nestled in a great location by the riverside but thats the only positive attribute for the hotel that I can think of. The resort was booked for us by MakemyTrip as part of the customized package we opted for. The room provided to us was extremely small, did not have any windows and we had no spectacular views to speak... More

We were pleasantly surprised to see the place and enjoy its homely food and comforts on such beautiful surroundings. Although its a small resort but you get full value of money for every penny spent. Our King size room lived up to or exceeded our expectations. Very beautiful spacious rooms with all the comforts and modern amenities. Unlike other places... More

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
