Good resort with clean rooms & great view. Nice balcony to enjoy the nature. Great place at Punakha to relax & enjoy nature. Lots of greenery and birds. Restaurant is big, food is basic and scope to improve. Staff is minimal & at times not available. Bar is good with large balcony but not managed well, no staff no service. Restaurant closed the orders by 8pm which makes you hurry for dinner & cannot enjoy resort. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Firstly, the views are amazing, yet when you are on a hiking trip, a quiet and comfortable room would be great for nightly stays, so loud or smoking neighbours on the fabulous balconies (that are not being asked by management to respect other guests after a certain time) are an impairment to a good stay. Staff are lovely, yet important to remember is that rooms only get serviced, if you ask for it.

The room was Clean and comfortable. There isn’t a phone in the room so if you need anything be prepared to navigate steep steps to reception. I chose room service for dinner and took the menu to the restaurant to select my choices and the meal was delivered. Lovely views of the valley.

This is a large hotel resort, with rooms situated at various levels and among a handful of separate buildings. The lobby is spacious with the bar area and dining hall in a separate building next to it. Our room was a walk from the dining room. That said, the room was quite comfortable. The room was clean and spacious and had all the amenities we needed. The bar sits above the ground level dining room and has a large outdoor pae enjoyed a beer there while viewing the Punakha Dzong below us. The evening views of the Dzong lit up were stunning. My only complaint was that we couldn't get any cocktails although they were listed as available, and could order only one brand of beer. The dinner buffet was quite varied and delicious. The breakfast buffet was fine, with eggs made to order.

Views make this hotel special. All the rooms have balconies overlooking the Dzong . Spectacular particularly when lit up at night. Like most travelers we were booked here by the tour company but we were happy with their choice. The room was clean. Sheets were a little skimpy and came untucked during the night. Shower worked well with super hot water. Dinner was acceptable the usual buffet with a selection of vegetable dishes a couple of meat options. All a little bland but they did offer some condiments like chutney. Breakfast was disappointing. Toast had been made so long ago it was rubbery. Eggs ditto. Only fruit offered was sliced apple. Coffee was the worst instant coffee we have experienced in Bhutan. Fortunately we did not come to Bhutan expecting gourmet food and the room was nice.

The hotel is very clean and its location offers a perfect view across the valley. The fort is lit at night and makes for amazing pictures. The staff are nice and friendly, while the food is plenty and in decent quality.

I was on my trip to Bhutan through the best “Bhutan Travel Club “. My friends who were traveling with me stayed in Uma Punakha. But i wont lie , my hotel has much better view of Punakha Dzong ! The room was cosy and staffs were super friendly . The breakfast was great too. I think this Zhingkham is arguably the best property for Dzong View !

We were in Bhutan for a week in early September 2022. We were among the very first travelers in Bhutan since COVID. The official restrictions were not lifted until September 23rd, but somehow we were approved to go the first week of September. Everywhere the travel industry is scrambling to prepare for the new "guidelines" recently enacted by the Bhutanese government, which are both expensive and unrealistic. The government just recently increased the "fee" from $75.00 USD per person per day to $250.00 per person per day. Taken in this context Zhingham was clean, the staff was courteous, and was better than several places we stayed. There are a number of comments about the poor quality of the food here. That is true everywhere in Bhutan. Bhutan is a gorgeous country that has yet to get some of the very basic amenities, including WIFI, credit cards, and dining. Major shortfalls in services are consistently rebuffed with scripted comments pointing you to their "happiness index". As far as Zhingham is concerned, as a foothold in Punakha, it is well situated.

We always prefer using the Zhingkham Property for our valued guests visiting Bhutan. Explicit rooms with a diligent view of Punakha Dzong. Superb location-wise, view-wise, and hospitality-wise. By far the best accommodation property in Punakha at its standards.
