Nine private villas and 20 luxury rooms flawlessly incorporate colourful local craftsmanship into clean-lined modern design. Private and secluded, rooms boast exceptional views of the forest, mountains and valley floor. Each room is tucked into a lush and sheltered glade of azaleas, rhododendrons, camellias and hydrangeas.

Hand-stitched bed linen features patterns that pay homage to Bhutan’s Buddhist culture and wooden floors are covered with hand-knotted rugs that come from nearby Nepal.
