Dhensa Boutique Resort
Punakha

Thick blankets of pine forests, the Punakha River carving its way through the vale, and hundreds of paddy fields stair-stepping down to the valley floor… This is the setting of Dhensa Boutique Resort deep in the heart of the lush Punakha Valley. Not only is this location utterly breathtaking, it also offers itself to plentiful walking and trekking trails. In particular the magnificent Sangchhen Dorji Lhuendrup Lhakhang nunnery, which houses one of the biggest bronze statues of Chenrigzig in the country, and is just a 5 minute walk away.

This hotel seamlessly combines pared back contemporary design with ancient Himalayan customs. Each en-suite room has its own balcony, the perfect place soak up the stunning views. They are private sanctuaries, where comfort and peace has been woven into the fabric of the design. The restaurant sources local and seasonal organic ingredients, and serves up an elegant dining menu. The hotel completes itself with a restorative spa, which offers various treatments and therapies using their very own hand-blended essential oils. There is a steam room and sauna too for those looking to treat themselves with a few extra hours in the spa.

There are no foreign lands. It is the traveller only who is foreign.
Robert Louis Stevenson

Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
