Don't get high expectations from this resort by the bank of the river in Punakha. People like us visit us only for the visit to the the oldest Zdong and do photography if you are into photography ? Else even given the situation of the road from Thimpu to Punkaha urge or negotiate with your driver to proceed to Paro... More

Had stopped for lunch on the way to Zdong. Location is fantastic. For rafting pathway this is the destination point. Quite near to Zdong, nice view of mountains. Food quality is good. Service is ok. Decent option in Punakha.

There is not much option at Punakha for budget travellers. Damchen is nice one. We stayed for one night at one of their standard room ( room no- 210) at 1st floor. 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
