This seven-storey structure is a welcome addition to the emerging kingdom's small capital city.

The elegant rooms - the smallest of which measure 450 square feet - are a haven, with high ceilings, dark-brown lacquered wood floors, walls mounted with mandalas, heated floors in bathrooms, and cushioned daybeds from which to gawk at the Himalayas.

Early-morning risers may catch sight of the monk who chants prayers in the outdoor courtyard, also where traditional dancers perform most nights around the sunken fire pit.

The restaurant's impressive Bhutanese menu includes a milky river-weed soup and ema-datshi, the national dish of melted cheese with grated chilies. Rimps, the lobby-level tea lounge with dramatic carved walls rising another four storeys, serves a tasty salted butter tea and offers a selection of authoritative reads on the region. Beneath the indoor pool is the aromatic Taj Spa.

Why We Love It

The hotel has access to one of the nation's seven nine-hole golf courses - His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck is a keen golfer.
