If you are in Bhutan to focus on trekking or taking in the spectacular scenery, these options are perfectly adequate. However, it is worth noting that they are very simple compared to the 3-star hotels you would come across elsewhere in Asia. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, and simple traditional food is often included. You won’t find the deluxe touches like heated flooring or turn down service that higher-end hotels in Bhutan offer, but some do still provide a spa service and great views. Plus, some of the farmhouses are very characterful and will give you a real flavour of Bhutanese life.
