Hotels in Bhutan

Hotels in Bhutan come in all shapes and sizes. With the building of high end luxury resort chains by international groups like Aman and Como Resorts, the overall profile of hotels in Bhutan have been raised. Now you will find accommodation in Bhutan from farmhouses to exclusive luxury resorts where high-end travellers can stay in style.  


As tourists, you are expected to be accommodated only in Tourism Council of Bhutan (TCB) approved 3-4 star rated hotels. All DoT-approved tourist hotels in Bhutan offer clean and comfortable accommodation. All these hotels have electricity, telephone connection, individual bathrooms and running hot/cold water.  


In most parts of Bhutan, you'll discover hotels that are memorable for their individuality and in convenient locations on the main travelling routes and valleys in Bhutan. Most of these hotels are family owned and run. Hosts are welcoming and can be interesting source of local cultural insights and information.

Few of the larger hotels in Thimphu and Paro offer fairly high quality accommodation. Generally, as you move further into the country from west to east, hotel rooms become basic and rudimentary. Hotel rooms have wooden panelled floor with decorations of Bhutanese motifs.


There is no central heating in most hotels in Bhutan. (Well, the new hotel in Paro have Swedish central heating system installed.) Hotels rooms are provided with electric heaters each, while electric water heaters are installed in your bathrooms. In Bumthang valley, hotels rooms have wooden heaters called Bukhari to heat the room.   


Restaurants in the hotels offer buffet meals during the peak tourist season. On off season and you are in a group, a buffet would be set up. Otherwise, you can order from the menu (provided the hotel chef is not on leave). In larger towns like Thimphu, you can eat out in other restaurants in the town.
