The 45-room Zhiwa Ling Hotel combines the sensibilities of a fine Bhutanese guesthouse with the best of 21 st Century technology. The hotel’s elaborate hand-carved wooden cornices and masterful stonework coexist beautifully with Swedish under-floor heating. All suites have fantastic views over the pine forests and mountain ranges. All the Juniper suite rooms have private balconies.


The spa offers all the amenities of a modern fitness center – sauna, steam room, gym – as well as a traditional Bhutanese outdoor hot-stone bath. One of the restaurants specializes in contemporary international cuisine, the other classic Bhutanese dishes and everyone gathers at the Mad Monk Bar for after-hours fun.

 

Honouring the spiritual heritage of this ancient Buddhist kingdom, a temple has been built into the second floor of the hotel, made with 450-year-old timbers from the famous Gangtey Monastery. The crowning glory of this new ten-acre cultural landmark in the quiet Paro Valley where Zhiwa Ling fully lives up to its name: Place of Peace. The 45-room Zhiwa Ling Hotel combines the sensibilities of a fine Bhutanese guesthouse with the best of 21 st Century technology.
