Dhensa Boutique Resort

Punakha | Superior

A sense of calm radiates from every corner of the Dhensa Boutique Resort, where the minimalist design focuses your attention on Punakha’s sweeping hillsides. From the hotel’s sheltered location between the pines, you can take a short trek up to the historic Sangchhen Dorji Lhuendrup Lhakhang nunnery and enjoy unbeatable views across the valley to the river below.

There is a sense of contemporary, pared-down elegance and tranquillity throughout the hotel. High-quality elements are coordinated to create a simple, uncluttered décor that promotes clarity and peace of mind away from the sensory overload of urban life. The open suites are decorated in bright white and pale neutrals, which combine with natural fibres and honey-toned wood to evoke an ordered, calm effect. Walls of glass flood the space with light and lead out to private balconies where you can take deep breaths of crisp mountain air each morning. The restful atmosphere continues in the en-suites with soft lighting and free-standing bathtubs.

Locally sourced ingredients are skillfully prepared by the chefs to create a range of Bhutanese and Western-style dishes with a modern edge. Enjoy meals in the airy restaurant, or dine al-fresco on the terrace, before retiring to a cosy seat in the courtyard to snuggle up in the warm glow of a chiminea. Hike through the surrounding hills to temples and historic sites, head out on the river, or get involved with local life, and return to the hotel for a sauna, a soak in the outdoor hot-tub or a blissful treatment or two at the spa.

We Say
A modern retreat with a chic, minimalist aesthetic and high quality service.
