A little old - 2 yrs infact. Overdue on TA - so here it goes... Admiring the Punakha Suspension Bridge and the river that flowed underneath, we made a demand of Sonam, our guide. We wanted to go and play in the river!! Sonam smiled. And said that our hotel for the night’s stay in Punakha was by the riverside.... More

In May 2016 we took a group tour to Bhutan. We were a group of about 27 people. The third night stay was in Hotel PhunatShangchu at Punakha (Wangdue). As we were four adults, two double rooms were booked for us. The hotel is situated on the banks of the historic Punatshangchhu river. It gives a delightful scenic feast of... More

Some of the rooms in this hotel have wonderful location, facing the river. However, the river bank is not properly maintained. The rooms are clean and good. The shower area cubicle is not a good option for older clients who have difficulty to walk. Food was average. In the room there was a notice requesting the guests to drop their... More

Rooms are facing beautiful river so location is very pleasant. Hotel is far away from town. WiFi is not available in the rooms. Not much happy with food & service. We found cockroaches in the rooms. Hotel location is bit lonely. Initially gave very small room for three of us even though booked big room. Finally after demanding gave big... More

The property is very well-maintained along with a very warm and courteous staff to welcome you. The room was clean complete with all the basic amenities. Food was okay, but the well-maintained surroundings and garden river view compensated for it. All in all, a memorable stay!

We only here to have dinner & sleep for one night. The proprietor was trying to accommodate our needs as our bedding arrangement was not I expected. Anyhow it worked fine. The food was nice. It's the only place that served us pita bread at dinner which gives one a choice of rice or bread. A nice change! The cottage... More

On reading reviews the cottages seem to be closer to the river however the river is quite far. It is a decent option to stay with nothing too fancy about it. The food was decent and overall the property has a scope of being better but lack a bit of experience.

I chose the property on the basis of the fantastic reviews and on the advise of our travel agent but I was disappointed like never before. This was the worst place of stay in our entire trip of Bhutan and we went right up to Jakar village in the east. But for the location, bang on the bank of river... More

The cottages aren't really cottages. They are regular, good sized rooms! Situated on the banks of the river, the hotel has a lovely setting. The seats on the lawns facing the river are a place to sit and be mesmerised by the view. The towering mountains and the river flowing below are a sight to see! Decent food. WiFi works... More
