Zhiwa Ling, Bhutan

Paro

Take in the beautiful architecture of a traditional Bhutanese guesthouse whilst enjoying the best of modern day amenities and technology at Zhiwa Ling.

Set in 10 acres of land, in the Paro Valley, the hotel is perfectly located to discover all that the area has to offer, whilst ensuring an authentic Bhutanese experience. Hand-carved wooden cornices and stunning stonework decorate the building, whilst the all-Bhutanese staff offers impeccable service throughout.

Take in breathtaking views from your room's private balcony or venture out on a trek into the pine forests. Hike to the famous Tiger's Nest monastery, which clings to the cliff face, or visit the local community temple for views of the sacred mount Jumolhari. More stunning views can be found at Dzongdrakha, a village precariously built into the rock face, where the majority of male residents are monks. 

Those looking to relax will enjoy the hotel's spa, which offers traditional outdoor hot-stone baths alongside a sauna and steam room. Take part in Buddhist meditation classes with accomplished monks in Zhiwa Ling's dedicated meditation house or visit the 2nd floor temple, created using 450-year-old timbers from the famous Gangtey Monastery.

The hotel's two restaurants, Lingka and Gawa, offer a variety of contemporary international cuisine and traditional local dishes, whilst the Mad Monk Bar offers guests the chance to try local beers and spirits in a cozy and relaxed setting.
