As a country with a very clear and clever high value, low tourism model, it’s no surprise that many of Bhutan’s hotels cater to the top level of luxury exceptionally well. Most of these hotels are intimate, sometimes with as few as 8 or 9 suites, which means that the staff to guest ratio is high and the service, food and welcome tends to be wonderful. Collectively these hotels are home to some of the best locations and views in the country, if not the world, and the atmosphere and sense of tranquillity can be incredibly special.
