Taj Tashi, Thimphu

Set in the heart of the Thimphu Valley, the Taj Tashi, is a gateway to a land steeped in mythology and magic. The mountain kingdom of Bhutan remains one of the old world's last few strongholds as yet unspoilt by civilization.

Nestled in the heart of the stunningly picturesque Thimphu Valley, you find the magnificent Taj Tashi. Here, dzong architecture and modern luxury blend to create a unique hotel experience that reflects its spellbinding surrounds. Hand-drawn Buddhist murals and breathtaking views surprise at every turn. And the friendliest staff are on hand to ensure your every need is taken care of. 

There are 66 elegant guestrooms and suites providing the perfect sanctuary to relax and refresh during your stay. Each of the hotel’s four restaurants are themed to provide a unique glimpse into a different element of Bhutan’s vibrant Mahayana Buddhist culture. Meet new friends over drinks in Ara bar and savour Bhutan’s fiery cuisine at Chig-Ja-Gye. Sample the distinctive ‘salted butter tea’ in the tea lounge and devour delectable European and Bhutanese dishes at the all-day restaurant, The Thongsel.

Taj Tashi is perfectly situated for you to explore the kingdom’s spectacular monasteries, scenic mountain passes and pristine wilderness. After a day filled with adventures, The Jiva Spa offers more ways to relax – don’t leave without trying the Bhutanese Hot Stone Bath.
