This hotel has good location, and large pleasant rooms. But new management not paying attention to details and as a result hotel is suffering. Old manager was always present in hotel and saw that staff well trained and attentive. Now there is no one to do these things and staff though friendly seem to be uncertain as to how to...

The hotel is located at a gentle bend of Punakha river and overlooks a long stretch of the river flowing serenely below the hotel which is perched on a commanding height. The view is panoramic and spectacular. The best part is the staff who are very helpful and ever ready to meet your requirements. The rooms are comfortable and the...

My recent stay at Dragon's Nest was very comfortable. Decent room with an amazing view right from your bed. Its located bit out of the city but Punakha area, the best hotels are located far from downtown. Should specifically mention the amazing service! Extremely quick on any request. Specially would like to mention PASSANG CHRING LHAM, who was very efficient...

We stayed just a night- thankfully- at this hotel which is definitely not a resort. the only positive is the excellent view of the river from the room balcony. We were the only occupants that day. The hotel is far way from the town and there is nothing to do. Fortunately, the TV channels are good and the beer is...

This place has an excellent view of the Mo-chhu river that cuts through the wangdue valley. Our's was a top floor room, with a sit-out balcony which is a good way to appreciate the untouched natural surroundings of Punakha. The room was comfortable with basic furnishing. Excellent spacious bathroom. Overall Spick and span. Cleanliness was 10/10. There were two things...

This hotel is seriously cute. The view of the meandering river with the backdrop of lush green hills is breath taking. Wished that we had a little more time at this place. It is a serene quaint place. The quality of breakfast and dinner was also much better as compared to Kisa in Thimpu.
