Traditional architecture combines with legendary Taj service at this striking Bhutanese hotel

At this eye-catching hotel which sits at the heart of the capital, the distinctive elegance and luxury of the Taj brand is complemented perfectly by the traditional Bhutanese architecture and style. The service is outstanding, just as you would expect from a property of this calibre, and the setting, nestled in the beautiful Thimphu Valley, makes it the perfect spot from which to explore the city’s major sights.

There are four restaurants here with a focus on local cuisine as well as Tibetan and European dishes. Savour Bhutanese favourites like Ema Datshi and Doem within the dramatic gold-leaf interiors of Chig-Ja-Gye, or venture to the open-air Thongsel restaurant and enjoy delicious European and Bhutanese fare while admiring the striking mist-covered mountain views.

Each of the spacious rooms and suites capture the essence of Bhutanese art and culture. Abundant with character, the exotic interiors feature hand-painted murals and colourful motifs, while large windows provide sweeping views of the dramatic mountains and township backdrop.
