Western Bhutan

Rating: Deluxe    

Taj Tashi overview

Taj Tashi, part of the Taj group of hotels, is a well-equipped hotel in Bhutan's capital, Thimphu, just an hour's drive from Paro airport. The hotel is a striking building blending traditional dzong (fortress-monastery) architecture with modern design. It overlooks the Thimphu Valley and the mountains beyond.

There are 66 rooms in several categories ranging from deluxe to suite. All have spacious en-suite bathrooms with underfloor heating and heated towel rails. Some of the deluxe rooms feature a private sit-out while the luxury rooms are larger, being located at the corners of each floor. Suites feature separate sitting rooms and walk-in wardrobes and the duplex and luxury suites, located on the top floors with excellent views over the valley, offer exceptionally spacious accommodation.

The hotel offers a wide range of cuisine. Chig-ja-Gye specialises in Bhutanese dishes, such as ema datshi, the national dish of Bhutan, a chilli stew with cream cheese. The Trongsel all-day coffee shop serves a range of snacks and main meals in several cuisines including Indian, Thai and international. The Rimps tea lounge is a good place to relax during the day and maybe sample a cup of su-ja, the local salted butter tea. Ara bar offers a comprehensive selection of spirits, beers and fruit punches plus soft drinks including fruit juices, milk shakes, tea and coffee.

The Jive Spa has several treatment rooms, steam rooms, Bhutanese hot stone baths and a jacuzzi. It offers various treatments based on Indian therapies, designed to maintain a physical, mental and spiritual equilibrium. The hotel also has a gym and a heated indoor swimming pool.

Guests staying at Taj Tashi can explore the street, squares and lively markets of Thimphu, visit monasteries in the area and take walks and hikes in the lovely Thimphu Valley.
