Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 27, 2013

My family- self, wife, two boys- had a great holiday in Bhutan from 20th to 26th May 2013. In particular our stay at the Punatsangchhu cottages located on the banks of the river at Wangdue was a great experience. Drive from Thimpu to Punakha/Wangdue through the scenic Dochu Laa was a wonderful experience. Punatsanghchhu cottages provided large comfortable rooms, well maintained and stocked. Food was great with a good selection of traditional Bhutanese and Indian cuisine. Well stocked bar. Great service with staff always there to assist. The lady who owns/runs the place (Tshewang Palden) is a professional who knows to take care of her guests.....very helpful........Overall a great Experience

Room Tip: Choose the cottages by the river.......

We stayed at room no 104 0n 21 and 22 May.For someone travelling from Kolkata,a city teeming with people and crowded with buildings,it was a heavenly experience to drink it unbounded natural beauty.It was a soothing experience.I must record that my knowledge of the history and society of Bhutan is derived almost entirely from my reading of the books that I found in your library.Finally,as a friend,may I request you to improve the quality of the dinner and introduce an intercom system?

The view from the hotel & room was really amazing! The resort is just beside a beautiful river and stunning mountains. We enjoyed their buffet breakfast with beautiful morning view. Greens & clouds were everywhere.

Journey from Thimphu to Wangdue - road was very bumpy for the 3 hrs journey.

Long drive way and the impression was going in to scary village.

Guestroom corridor was very messy full of plastic bottles and umbrellas and my room key was hang at the door. My poor tour guide have a very strange looking at me by asking are you ok with the hotel...

Guestroom come with a very basic facilities e.g. Hair dryer, kettle for making your own coffee and tea. Nice balcony overlooking at the river.

Restaurant: the friendly lady owner provide the best service and well english speaking was serving during the dinner. Table was all properly label under the travel agent name. At first I was worry on the food quality but ended up it was really good.

Note:
1. Please bring along light jacket or wind breaker. The wind is super strong.
2. please bring along torchlight if you traveling to Bhutan, if you lucky enough nothing will be happen. Unlucky me, twice was black-out.
3. If you not get use of shower soap. Please bring along your own favorite shower gel or shampoo.

I was really impressed with the location, cleanliness and comfort offered at such a small tourist destination. The staff and owners are really courteous and you can relax here without any disturbance.

Room Tip: Go for deluxe room on the river side

The rooms were basic but a good size. Had a deck overlooking the river but it was too cold to open the door. The rooms had a small heater and all the public areas were very cold. The food was very good. Our OAT group took 6 rooms and 2 of the rooms had a sewer smell. I don't think it was a surprise to them.

The hotel is not the reason to be here, the regions striking landscapes, Dzongs and temples are. It's pretty basic but clean and comfortable enough as a base to see the Wangdue & Punakha region. The views from the hotel take advantage of the beautiful surroundings, we enjoyed having an afternoon beer looking down at the river.
Our room and bathroom were both a very good size but we were in a newer building and it didn't feel entirely finished. The furniture was comfortable but pretty basic, the curtain rail didn't fit properly and the lock/door was extremely stiff.
The food was very average and breakfast limited to pretty much just eggs.
The one big plus was we thought the service was good and the owner certainly seemed to care.
Considering the effort of the staff and their intent we feel a bit harsh in giving only 3/5 but also considering the daily charge to be in Bhutan we couldn't justify giving anything more.
