Of the many trails weaving through verdant surroundings, one will lead you to Dhensa Boutique Resort. Dhensa Punakha marries contemporary design with this Himalayan Kingdom’s ancient and alluring ways. At the core of the Dhensa Punakha philosophy lies the sense of innocence and peace that permeates everything about Bhutan.
Surrounded by numerous walking trails, the 6 individual cottages house 4 guest suites each, all with private balconies for relaxing in solitude. The interiors of the cottages and guest suites are a study in understated appeal but offer rich panoramic views of the valley, the Punakha river, paddy fields and the pine forests that flank the resort. Modern amenities add to the soothing ambience.
Nourishing and nurturing meals are served in the glass-enclosed dining area. Seasonal, local and organic produce is incorporated as often as possible into an inventive menu that features Asian, Bhutanese and western selections.
The Dhensa Spa, set in its own cottage with forest-facing windows, offers a haven for relaxation and rejuvenation for those who wish to partake in yoga, spa treatments with special hand-blended essential oils, or unwind in the sauna or steam room. Here one can also experience the outdoor wood-fired bath.
