Zhiwa Ling Hotel

Paro, Bhutan

Located on 10 acres in a serene setting in the green Paro Valley, the deluxe Zhiwa Ling is a wonderful example of traditional Bhutanese architecture, every bit of it hand-carved in Bhutan by local craftsmen. The 45 rooms (all suites) are airy and large, with balconies opening onto views of world-famous Taktsang Monastery. At the hotel’s Menlha Spa, enjoy a sauna or a Bhutanese-style massage, perfect after a long day’s hike, while the tea room offers local safflower and cinnamon herb teas. The hotel has two restaurants, plus the Mad Monk bar, a great spot for winding down. The Zhiwa Ling has appeared on Conde Nast Traveler’s annual “Gold List.”
