We stayed at this resort during our visit to Punakha. The resort is located right by the river bank. The taxi stand is only a minute away from the resort. We booked a semi deluxe room but it was upgraded to a deluxe room without any additional charges. The room had a wonderful view of the river bank. It was...

This Damchen Resort is located at a very appropriate location just beside the Pho Chu and Mo Chu rivers of Punakha. I had stayed in this hotel only for 1 day i.e. on 30/12/2016. Ambience of this resort is too good and looks beautiful. The rooms are also neat and clean. But I would suggest to book for the ground...

Great location by the river. Because of the low season I was upgraded for free for one of the riverside deluxe room (extra points for service). I have to say that made the stay considerably more comfortable (the normal rooms are tiny and have no view). The hotel has put some effort in the decoration, although the place still feels...

Arriving at the resort you'll see it's beautiful location. In fact, it's the only reason why I give 1 star. It's right by the river, and has a rock beach. When we walked inside we got the impression we were alone at the resort. The room we had, had a decent size balcony. The bathroom however was something out of...

We were on a biking expedition to bhutan and we had to find accommodation on the go. After reaching phunaka (old capital of Bhutan) we were looking out for some budget hotels (1-2k) then we came across this beautiful resort which is just next to bus stand and a big phunaka market. They gave a very good discount of 40%...

Pros: Like all resorts in Bhutan where i've stayed, this is by the river. Quite close to many sightseeing places in Bhutan. Cons: The Indian food served was OK. The rooms that we were given were small and a little untidy.

The rooms here were lovely, mine was a large suite and had a small balcony overlooking the gardens with poinsettia trees - and no Bhutan dogs within earshot, bliss! Would recommend staying here to anyone - clean, food as good as anywhere we found.

We booked a trip to Bhutan via one of the travel agencies in India. Punakha turned out to be a pleasant surprise mainly due to the amazing resort we stayed at. Large spacious rooms with two king beds for a family of 3. Full length glass windows facing the river. Backdoor to walk towards the river. Dinner turned out to...

Our room was very specious with river view through the large window. River flows almost at the doorstep of this resort. Facilities are very good. The stewardess minutely understood our food requirements and the chef very carefully prepared Indian vegetarian dish to the best of our taste. Hotel staff very cordial and polite. Ambience and surrounding - very impressive.

The location was good, it was just beside the Punakha river and the local market was in a 4 min walking distance. We booked a semi deluxe room but the room was not similar to the photos in their website. It was quite small. Furniture was old and not properly cleaned . WIFI availability was limited to the reception area...
