Taj Tashi

Boasting sweeping views of Thimphu valley, Taj Tashi is a luxurious property in the heart of Bhutan’s charming capital city of Thimphu, offering international levels of service we can expect from the Taj hotel group. Taj Tashi’s central location makes for the ideal base from which to explore the spectacular monasteries, scenic mountain passes, pristine wilderness and the city by foot straight from the hotel. Many of Thimphu's main attractions are walking distance, including the Tashi Chho Dzong, home to the King and the central monk body, the Weekend Market and the central shopping street which sells local textiles and handicrafts. And of course, there is trekking in the scenic mountain wilderness.

In keeping with its Bhutanese surroundings, Taj Tashi combines a blend of Bhutan’s iconic dzong architecture and local touches with a modern design. One of the largest buildings in the country, Taj Tashi comprises of 66 elegant guestrooms which are spacious and comfortable, and are well-appointed with modern amenities. Adorned with classical hand-drawn Buddhist murals the rooms are decorated in an international style with Bhutanese inspiration. From each room guests can enjoy breathtaking views of pine-covered slopes and the mountains that rise above the Thimphu valley, fluttering with colourful prayer flags.

The hotel offers two stylish restaurants where guests can sample a wide range of Bhutan’s fiery cuisine and butter tea besides European options. The Thongsel is a relaxed all-day dining restaurant, serving Bhutanese and light international cuisine, and the fine dining restaurant, Chig Ja Gye, offers a Bhutanese menu in an exclusive setting. There is also an intimate bar and tea lounge, Rimps, where guests can sip Suja, Bhutan’s special salted butter tea, amongst Bhutanese murals in a serene environment.

As well as exploring all the nearby local attractions, guests are encouraged to leave some time for the indoor heated swimming pool and the Jiva spa, which offers exclusive signature treatments based on traditional Indian healing therapies. For a truly authentic and relaxing experience, try the traditional Bhutanese hot stone bath, an age-old therapy which helps loosen joints and soothe tense muscles for the ultimate relaxation.

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
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 would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, 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
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, 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
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
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
