Nice place with very good views and decent bedroom and bathroom. The food was good and the staff in the restaurant were very obliging and keen to please. It represented good value and I don’t have anything negative to report. They have a separate bar area which was quite large and not very conducive to sit in as the likelihood I would have been the only one. Like many of these hotels in Bhutan they’re very practical but rather bright and soul-less.

An interesting resort hotel located on the slopes of a mountain in Punakha. The rooms are located in stone and concrete cottages on the hill slope. You will need to climb up many flights of steps or get transported by the hotel vehicle to reach your room. My wife had a painful knee so we used the hotel transport. There are no elevators. Lovely views of the Punakha Dzong and surrounding mountains are visible from the balcony of the room which was well appointed. To eat breakfast or dinner you have to 'descend' to the spacious dining room adjacent to the main hotel building and then 'climb' back to your room. Good internet, hot shower and clean beds. Food and restaurant service were average. House-keeping service was good. Managed to shoot some stunning views of the Punakha Dzong on a moonlit night.

Our motorcycle tour group came here. The hotel is high on the hill overloooking the fort. The road is steep and narrow. Welcome, service and facilities were all very good. Excellent WiFi. Food was very good.

Our room in 1sr floor, Block 1 can see the Dzong perfectly. The room is clean and big enough. Limited amenities provided. Due to location in hill side, some insects in the the room are expected. Their hotel can be upgraded if the WIFI network bandwidth or food quality are great improved. Wifi is good near reception only. Food taste is not good. One interesting thing is the toilet flush water is very hot. Not sure which button we turn on wrongly. Need to be careful when you flush the toilet.

Our room have beautiful view of Punakha Dzong. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the balcony, listen to birds singing. We were there at off season, very quiet. The room was clean and smell good. Wifi was not working in our room, only work outside ,front door of our room. So if we need to use wifi to contact our family at home, we had to go out of our room and sit at the chairs near the stairs way. The hotel itself is 5 stars to me. But 1 of the front desk lady is not friendly to my family. I think because we look Asian. She was very friendly and nice to other guests (white looking people) But was not happy to help me When I ask questions ,she was kinda didn't want to answer me, she look other way ,tried to ignore me and the other nice lady and gentleman helped me.

This resort has rooms in blocks. There are 5-6 blocks. For the best view,I would recommend block 1,which gives clear views of the Punakha Dzong,the most iconic structure in all. It is also beautifully lit up at night and looks like a ship. The USP of this hotel is the location and stunning views. Rooms are clean and comfortable,with AC and of average size. The bathroom area is modest and functional. Hot water is always available. There is a small shower cubicle and some basic toileteries are provided. As it is a mountainous area,bugs can quickly get in if the French windows are kept open for too long. I ordered room service from the buffet menu for my entire stay there,as the restaurant was noisy and full of groups,and,I wanted to enjoy my meals peacefully. The food was always promptly delivered and hygenically presented. Liquor is cheap in Bhutan and the hotel prices were quite reasonable. I opted for a bottle of Local Raven vodka,which cost around 1600/-Rs. There are a lot of stairs to be climbed in order to get to the room,which may be an issue for elderly people. The weather was slightly warm,but the aircon was working well and it was quite comfortable. Overall,it was a pleasant stay with stunning views being the highlight!

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.
