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 pine forests, 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’s a sense of contemporary, pared-back 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. This resort is a haven where you could easily spend hours just gazing at the beautiful views, but the nature and history that envelops it is well worth a closer look.
High on a serene hillside, overlooking the Punakha river and surrounding paddy fields, the Dhensa Boutique Resort has an idyllic location right in the heart of the leafy Punakha valley.
Wood-fired hot tub
Yoga and meditation room
Spa, sauna and steam room
An ideal getaway for peace and tranquillity, perfectly combining tradition and nature.
