I didn't see much of the main hotel building apart from the spacious lobby and the dining hall. The food was good, but generic. We stayed in the bungalows - in the gardens across the parking area, surrounded by lush gardens. Very spacious and well-appointed.

Stayed here twice on our ten day trip through Bhutan first in a big first floor room with balcony and second in a semi bungalow. Both OK although main room in house had more character. Food and service good. Wifi only available in reception.

This place looks lovely from the entrance. Traditional wooden main building. Our first room was on the top floor and we had some serious problems. The very basic bathroom with few amenities had a poorly functioning shower. Besides the water coming out yellow, the drain didn't work and the bathroom got flooded. The stained towels were very rough, obviously washed... More

The Hotel was ok, not that great. I had a "semi" bungalow in the grounds which was clean but as soon as I went to pull shower door back it fell off! Quite dark down the steps too. Food wasn't very good but staff were helpful and friendly. I would have liked to have been down in Punakha itself to... More

Mentioned as in Punkha but it's also on the outskirts in some other town. Probably has seen some better days, it's kept clean though. We had a room on the second floor and the lobby and stairs have a lot of echo so it was quite noisy sometimes, especially if there was a big group leaving or coming in late... More

After reading the reviews I had serious worries about this hotel, but the reviews appear to have been spiteful and unwarranted. We had a lovely room that was part of a 2 room cottage, with a great view, a clean bathroom and abundant hot water. My daughter's room was just as nice. The main part of the hotel was attractive...

Punakha has anyway few choices and fewer good quality budget hotels like in Thimphu. ZP had a nice location (up on a hill) and might have been a great property once, as was evident from the outside but looks like years of neglect have made it a pretty basic looking hotel. The rooms and property in general definitely needs some... More

Although I thought the location of this hotel was lovely the overall experience was disappointing even taking into consideration that it was in Bhutan which has much lower level of accommodations that in developed countries. We had just plain lousy food for dinner and breakfast. The internet did not work even though they claim they have it. There were so... More
