The 45-room Zhiwa Ling hotel combines the sensibilities of a fine Bhutanese guesthouse with the best of 21st-century technology. Envisioned and created by a local Bhutanese company, the hotel’s elaborate hand-carved wooden cornices and masterful stonework coexist beautifully with cutting-edge telecommunication systems and Swedish under-floor heating. The Tourism Council of Bhutan (TCB) announced the Tourist Accommodation classifications and Zhiwa Ling Hotel is the first and only wholly Bhutanese owned hotel to receive a 5 star rating. Zhiwa Ling Hotel is the only Bhutanese owned hotel and one of only two in the country to be ISO22000 certified. Set on 10 acres, Zhiwa Ling has many amenities available to guests. The spa offers all the facilities guests could want; a fitness centre, sauna, steam room as well as a traditional Bhutanese outdoor hot-stone bath. There is a business centre, Tea House, two fully equipped conference rooms, a Meditation House and the hotel has its own greenhouse. Zhiwa Ling Hotel practices sustainable tourism.

An outstanding hotel set in a lovely garden and done in traditional Bhutanese style. The lobby and its wood carving is a sight to behold. The two restos and the Mad Monk bar serves delicious cuisine and drinks. The satff is helpful,courteous and will go beyond to make your stay memorable. The spa is strongly recommended,specially after the Tiger's Nest hike but needs to be pre booked. You can also try traditional Archery in the hotel ground. Will soon have a heated pool and a sauna/steam. A true bliss!

Beautiful, authentic resort with very friendly staff, excellent food options, good spa ( try out the bhutanese hot stone bath). Surrounded by the mountains and calm and peaceful. Very close to start your Takstang hiking.

A bit outside Paro, this place has beautiful architecture, tranquil environment with views of the mountains, and nice service. The main building has a restaurant and small shop. The restaurant service is very friendly. Rooms are in the separate buildings on the property. Very large spacious rooms with balconies. Very comfortable.

We stayed here 1 night on way to Tiger's Nest, would have preferred to stay longer. The room was spacious with an outdoor deck. There is shower and tub with toilet in separate cubby. They greet you with a silk scarf and make you feel welcomed. The grounds are beautiful. The restaurant had several options for dinner (more options for breakfast) and the staff helped ensure that there were no ingredients to which I was allergic. This had been a problem in some smaller local restaurants.
