Tourist accommodation in Bhutan is pleasantful and characterful ranging from three star to five star hotel but it can be generally basic, especially as you travel further east. When deciding on the accommodation to include in your trip, broadly speaking there are three options: standard hotels, luxury hotels and standard hotels with upgrades. For more details of the options please enquire to our email(morningdewtt@gmail.com).

Areas of discount

2. A group with 11-15 members will get a discount of 50% for one member in a group. And a 100% discount to a member in a group if the group exceeds 16 members.
The list of your desired standard and luxury hotels

The list of your desired standard and luxury hotels are:

1. Uma Paro and Hotel Zhiwaling in Paro.
2. Uma Punakha in Punakha.
3. Amankora in Paro, Thimphu, Gangtey and Bhumthang.
4. And many exotic resorts in Bhutan.

Other than Zhiwaling these are overseas owned and they are the result of a recent decision to allow limited foreign investment in Bhutan. All offer something quite different from any local accommodation – but be prepared to pay for the privilege! If you are interested in sampling the delights of these hotels let us know and we can arrange it for you.

At the other end of the spectrum Bhutan Morning Dew can arrange you to spend a night in a traditional Bhutanese farmhouse in which the facilities are very basic and often it will be just a mattress on the floor and the farmhouse may not have an internal bathroom. This is not for everyone, but some of our clients find it an interesting experience and it will give you the opportunity to get an insight into traditional village life and try locally cooked food in Bhutan. Ask us if you want to include this in your itinerary.
