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.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
Bill Bryson
