Where To Stay In Bhutan

Taj Tashi Patio BonfireIf you have not read the amazing travel experience from Rebecca before reading this article, we highly recommend that you do so here. As you can see from her experience, Bhutan is not an ordinary location. It is a modern country that still has one foot squarely locked in the past. It is moving forward slowly without actually compromising on what its history means.

A few of the keywords that Bhutan is renowned for include the preservation and protection of its natural environment, the preservation and promotion of culture and tradition, and the careful progress in sustainable socio-economic development. Simply put, Bhutan is different from anything that you might have seen before. However, that does not mean that you cannot explore Bhutan in luxury.

The Taj Tashi

This was where the journey ended after the first day. The Taj Tashi is a luxury hotel that is located in the heart of the Thimphu Valley. It is a gateway to a land steeped in magic and mythology.

This hotel blends together modern design and Bhutan’s traditional Dzong architecture. There are 66 elegant guestrooms, most of which offer spectacular views of the mountains high above the Thimphu valley.

The hotel is located in the capital city of Thimpu, making this a perfect place to stay if you want to explore the pristine wilderness, scenic mountain passes, centuries-old street festivals, and spectacular monasteries. (more…)
