Zhiwaling Heritage

Paro | Superior

Full of colourful wood carvings and traditional-style fabrics, the Zhiwaling Heritage is an uplifting homage to the ornate architecture of Bhutan’s historic temples. Within easy reach of Taktshang Goemba (the famous Tiger’s Nest monastery), this hotel makes a tranquil base for exploring Paro’s numerous sacred sites.

The rooms are spacious and homely, each with a tangible sense of Bhutanese heritage in the traditional décor. Colourful quilts cover sturdy wooden beds, and bold motifs adorn rugs and cushions bringing a vibrancy to the space. All feature a private balcony where you can enjoy a peaceful cuppa in the crisp mountain air each morning. Separate sitting rooms provide extra flexibility in the larger suites, ideal for families or mixed groups, and the Royal Raven Suite (which includes a private shrine room) is the epitome of rural Bhutanese luxury.

Spirituality is at the fore in this hotel, which has its own temple and a meditation house with views of Tiger's Nest, where you can get a sense of Bhutanese Buddhist practice. The hotel bar, the Mad Monk (affectionately named after the respected 15th century Buddhist teacher, Drukpa Kunley), is a welcoming venue where you can sip a ‘Dragon Warmer’ cocktail by the open fire or try some locally-made Ara rice wine. Enjoy laid-back, all-day dining in the restaurants or on the terrace with stunning views of the gardens and valley. To complete your relaxation, take a few quiet moments in the Tea House, or relax body and mind with a soothing traditional treatment at the spa.
