Overview

Serene mountain retreat with two restaurants, an award-winning spa and spectacular views of the Himalayas

The Lowdown

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.

Hospitality at Taj Tashi, Thimpu, Bhutan
Rajeev801

We heartily appreciate the hospitality extended by Ms Rinzin, Ms Tashi and Ms Kuenley Wang at front desk, Mr. Bannu in restaurant, Mr. Varun Sharma, Marketing during our stay from 7th Sept 19 to 11th Sept 19, in Taj Tashi. Their courtesy and hospitality made us feel as if we were departing from the house of our close relative. We have stayed in many five star hotels in the world but hospitality here was different and will surely bring us back to Taj Tashi. We wish all of them all the best.
