It is an excellent experience to walk in the hotel compound area along the river side.We stayed here only for one night .The resort is situated on the bank of river giving magnificent view. This lovely resort is neat and clean. Food was average as usual in Bhutan but the walk by the river in the morning was fantastic and... More

The accommodation was quite good and there was a very nicely grassed area leading down to the river. The seating and birds made for a very relaxing time. I did not use any “resort facilities” but it is a very nice hotel.

Also we got a room even as walk-ins! since the hotel booked by out travel agent was more like a lodge :S The staff is helpful, nice food and... More

We had initially booked standard room, it was really tiny and dingy and we decided to pay a little more and opt for a larger room. This room was large and spacious with a heater and the bathroom was nice and clean too with uninteruppted hot water supply. The room was on the ground floor overlooking the lawn and the... More

The resort is by a river. Very scenic. However the staff in the restaurants are not friendly. The taste of the food is not good. They even did not serve me what I ordered till I had to fight with the manager for my rights.

We stayed at Damchen Resort during our recent Bhutan trip (visit to Punakha) and loved our stay. Hotel is well maintained, beautifully located on the bank of Puna Tsang Chu (River). Rooms are small but accommodating, comfortable and very clean. Staff is very friendly. There is an open lawn where you can sit on stone wall with cushions on river... More

The warm climate of this area invites accommodation near the river and this attractive property does not disappoint. The rooms are very comfortable but personally, I would prefer to hear the sound of the river flowing and birds to the playground and car park. Definitely recommend river-facing. The grounds are pleasant and a great spot to watch the river birds... More

Excellent. We were very happy with the experience with this hotel. I would recommend this resort to everyone. Staff was very courteous and provided food to our liking. Rooms were superb and all facilities were there.Since the layout of the resort is separate cottages at different levels people with disability should request rooms at the restaurant level. On the whole... More
