Nestled in the hills outside Paro, Zhiwa Ling is an architectural gem that unites Bhutanese culture and heritage with 21st-century comforts. Its main lodge and cottages—each hand-decorated with intricate carvings—are set in a lush landscape of weeping willows and fruit trees. This is the first five-star Bhutanese-owned hotel, and its 45 beautifully appointed suites look out over the emerald foothills of the Himalaya.
In the spirit of Bhutan’s Buddhist tradition, guests can join monks at the Meditation House, soak up the tranquility of the Tea House, and enjoy a unique selection of spa treatments imbued with spiritual symbolism. The town of Paro and its magnificent dzong (or fortress) are a short distance from here, and the iconic cliff-hanging Tiger’s Nest monastery is within view. A variety of nearby hiking trails lead to age-old monasteries and typical villages, and an hour’s drive through stunning scenery will have you peering at peaks and prayer flags from spectacular mountain passes like Cheli La.
It is not an old hotel—it first opened its doors in 2005 and is equipped with all the modern amenities you’d expect—yet the stunning architecture conveys an atmosphere of timeless tradition that fits right into Bhutan’s cultural landscape. The hotel’s temple exemplifies this emphasis on the authentic: it was built using 450-year-old wood from the original Gangtey Goemba monastery, one of Bhutan’s most cherished sites.
