Boasting sweeping views of the mountains that rise above Thimphu Valley, Pemako features a spectacular blend of Bhutan’s traditional fort-monastery architecture with the ultimate in modern design. The 66 elegant rooms and suites are decorated with colourful regional art. Elegant, expansive and luxuriously appointed, the rooms feature panoramic windows that offer tantalising glimpses of pine-covered slopes and fluttering prayer flags. The Jiva Spa offers signature treatments based on traditional Indian healing therapies and offered in treatment rooms decorated in wood and marble and equipped with hot stone treatment tubs. Guests can tantalise their taste buds with a range of culinary experiences that combine fiery Bhutanese cuisine with Tibetan and European influences. The hotel offers a choice between four bars and restaurants, each themed according to a different aspect of Bhutan’s vibrant culture. Decorated with gold leaf paintings and musical instruments, Chig-ja-gye restaurant specialises in traditional Bhutanese cuisine, while The Thongsel is an informal all-day eatery that serves light European or Bhutanese meals.
