Hotel Overview


Domestic flights from Paro serve the capital city of Thimphu, a kingdom small enough to explore on foot. An international airport is currently in the later stages of development, which will dramatically improve accessibility for overseas visitors.

Rooms at Taj Tashi Thimphu

Decadently rich tones and hand-painted murals adorn the walls of the hotel’s spacious guestrooms and suites, exhibiting traditional Bhutanese art. Elaborate furnishings and spacious, walk-in wardrobes combine with superb mountain views for the ultimate feeling of luxury.

Food and Facilities

Each of the hotel’s four restaurants depicts the unique characteristics of the Mahayana Buddhist culture. From gold-leaf paintings to traditional Himalayan folk instruments, guests can immerse themselves in Bhutan’s rich heritage whilst dining on a selection of local and European fare. Head to Rimps restaurant for a warming cup of Suja - salted butter tea. Its soothing, distinct flavour is a Himalayan speciality.

Activities at Taj Tashi

Whether you’re in need of a rejuvenating massage, or a spiritual yoga retreat, the extensive list of healing treatments on offer at the Jiva Spa makes it a heavenly addition to the Taj Tashi. Finished in cool marble and decorated with Bhutanese artefacts, the soothing environment promotes the restoration and balancing of the soul. Outside the hotel, Bhutan’s rich heritage is evident in every walk of life, and the small kingdom offers excellent scenic hiking, impressive monasteries and street festivals dating back through the centuries.
