Thimphu hotels

Taj Tashi Thimphu, part of Taj group of hotels, was built in 2008 and designed to blend Bhutan’s traditional Dzong with modern architecture. This hotel is located in the centre of Thimphu and allows guests to explore the capital city of Bhutan on foot. Their 66 rooms and suites are spacious and decorated in traditional Bhutan style with Buddhist murals. The hotel has four restaurants that combine Bhutanese with Tibetan and European cuisines.  There is a spa featuring a ‘Bhutanese Hot Stone Bath’ and also sauna, Jacuzzi, indoor heated swimming pool and fitness centre.

Aman Kora Thimphu is located in a pine forest above Thimphu town so combines a peaceful secluded retreat with easy access to capital’s main sights and shops. Amankora has been named by combining aman, the Sanskrit-derived word for ’peace’, and kora or ’circular pilgrimage’ in Dzongkha, the Bhutanese language.  There are 16 suites with wooden interiors and chocolate brown walls. Each room features a king-size bed, a terrazzo-clad bath and traditional bukhari wood-burning stove.  The restaurant offers Western or Thai dishes and can be eaten inside or an outdoor dining deck with views of the surrounding forest.
