Amid snowcapped Himalayan peaks, primeval forests and shadowy ravines, this five-star mountain retreat is ideally located for exploring Bhutan’s magical monasteries and diverse landscapes. The property’s striking toffee-colored façade is a mesmerizing blend of modern design and Bhutanese Dzong architecture. The grand, marble-clad lobby leads to 66 enormous bedrooms (Luxury Suites are 1,000 square feet) all with kingsize beds, indigenous rugs, hand-painted murals – and phenomenal views of the Himalayas. The Suites are suitably plush with added extras like walk-in closets, canopy beds and a separate living area. Bathrooms are decked out in olive marble, with rain shower cubicles and standalone Christina bathtubs. Sample Bhutanese cuisine in the delightfully ornate Chig Ka Gye restaurant, with its oak paneling and traditional gold-leaf paintings; or enjoy floor-to-ceiling mountain views at The Thongsel, a creamy marble dining room that serves upscale European fare. Don’t leave without sampling the traditional Bhutanese Hot Stone Bath treatment at the award-winning Jiva Spa.
In the Area
As the first country in the world to declare that GNH (Gross National Happiness) is more important than GNP, this tiny Buddhist kingdom is truly unique. The hotel’s central location in Thimphu is the perfect base from which to explore; start with the Druk Path, a short trek between Paro and Thimphu; or an amble around the weekend market north of Changlimithang Stadium. Vendors in brightly colored traditional dress sell dried fish, pork and homemade soft ‘datse’ cheese. Then head to Bhutan’s most famous monastery, Paro Taktsang (Tiger’s Nest) originally built in 1692. The elegant structure was erected around the cave where the ancient Guru Padmasambhava is said to have meditated for three years, three months, three weeks, three days, and three hours.
How to Get There
This hotel has a great location, beautiful rooms and service, complementary WiFi
And the Jiva Spa is excellent! Also there is a bar on the main level.The welcome drink and valentines sweets were a nice touch!
This is a beautiful property right in the heart of Thimphu. The decor of the place incl the rooms is traditional Bhutanese yet modern and very tastefully done. The rooms are well appointed. Food is excellent and service is very good. Expensive but worth the indulgence.
It does not live up to the expectation of a taj property. The food is not great. Service is average. Also the rooms are tiny. Only good part is the cultural program they have in the evenings and breakfast is quite decent.
Excellent location, beautiful rooms, extremely personalised service and the feel of been in locale is what summarises the experience in Taj Tashi. children activities in the afternoon keeps the kids engaged while you can indulge in shopping around the hotel
Great service from truly friendly people. They went out of the way to celebrate my daughter's birthday. This property has a great Chef in chef Piyush who is always ready attend to our demands and that too with a smiling face. The food is simply amazing.
