Damchen resort is located by the side of the river in Punakha. I stayed with my wife in this resort on 16th & 17th Of June and it was truly an enjoyable stay.

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 only had lunch here. The food was cold Indian spread with the staff refused to heat up. This was the worst experience during our entire Bhutan stay. 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 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
