We spent one night here in September 2012. Set in the idyllic and picturesque Phobjikha Valley, this impressive stone and wood hotel reminded us of a ski lodge. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Our room was on the first floor at the back and so without a view. The food was better than average, a mixture of international and local fare, but we had to battle with legions of flies at breakfast.

What a nice place to stay. We had a wonderful corner room. So nice and so cosy; We just loved it. We regret so much that we could only spend one night here. The hotel was ok, the food was ok, the view was wonderful, the valley is so lovely. Why did we not know this before and we would have spent several days there. You can make wonderful walks there. It is still a bit of the beaten track.

Only spent one night here but would have loved to have stayed longer. We came here to see Black-necked Cranes and were not disappointed with views from our room as well as close ups in the Phobjekha valley. Really big clean rooms done in traditional wooden style. Big comfortable beds. Plenty of hot water available. Wood burning stove and hot water bottles to keep warm at night. Food was excellent with good vegetarian options. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The scenery was fantastic with lots of other birds seen in the area. Really peaceful place.

Phobjika Valley was my favorite place I travelled in Bhutan. Not on the main tourist circuit, it was well worth the visit. The hike from the Monastery to the Valley was incredibly scenic, and to my surprise at the end of the hike, was the lovely Hotel Dewachen. Built in a traditional style, it had amazing views and modern, albeit a little rustic amenities. Modern meaning good shower with hot water, rustic meaning you heated your room with wood in a little stove. The hotel was clean, the food was good, the beds were comfortable, and the views were incredible. No Internet, which is what I was hoping for in such a remote valley, although I could get texts. A superb diamond in a lovely valley.

Room Tip: Upper floors on either wing. Corners are apparently the best.

When you first arrive at this hotel, you may be surprised that there is no one to open the front gate that leads to the entrance of the hotel. This is of minimal problem as your guide will open it for you (manually). Apparently it is to prevent any stray cattles from entering the hotel site.

The thing I really like about this hotel is that it is decorated in traditional Bhutanese architecture, even the interior. Traditional wood stove in every room just adds to the charm and you will need it as it can get cold in Phobjikha.

Depending on the room location, the view you get from the room window may range from 'decent' to 'great'.

Bring plenty of cash if you do visit Phobjikha as the hotel has very low exchange rate compared to money changers in Thimpu and Paro and there are no money changers or ATMs available in Phobjikha. If you have researched before you come to Phobjikha, you'd know there are no cities here, just small rural settlements dotted across the impressively huge valley.

There is also no Wi-Fi but you do not come all the way here to spend all day in the room Facebooking or Twittering. Do venture into the huge valley outside and do a day trek if possible. I did this from Khumbu (spelling?) Village to the Nature Trail to a small monastery across the hotel within the valley where you may find the monks playing traditional Bhutanese dart game (they even welcomed me to join them!). This took around 8 hours for me before heading back to the hotel's dining area for an afternoon tea with the magnificent view of the valley.

Overall, a good place to stay for your visit to Phobjikha. I highly recommend to spend at least 2 nights here so you can have more time exploring the valley.

Tip: if you like, you can request for more traditional Bhutanese food instead of the bland 'touristy' food when dining here, or any other place you stay in Bhutan. Just ask the staff!
