Hotel Zhiwa Ling, Paro
Five years in the making, Zhiwa Ling is a tribute to the ornate architectural arts of Bhutan. Every part of the hotel is handmade, from the massive hand-carved wooden beams to the seemingly endless designs of the colorful, hand-painted ceilings and walls. Zhiwa Ling provides the most authentic top-tier hospitality and accommodation experience in Bhutan and is Bhutan’s first locally owned, faithfully traditional hotel with 21st century conveniences.

As a result, guests can experience an authentic Buddhist ceremony beside the 450 -year-old timbers of our in-hotel temple while remaining comfortably warm thanks to an advanced Swedish in-floor heating system. Likewise, guests can order room service for favorite local dishes such as “ema datsi” which is traditional chillies and cheese while checking their email or surfing the Internet, wirelessly, inside the privacy and comfort of their rooms. Zhiwa Ling is a unique cultural hybrid–an exuberant celebration of the best of a 1,000-year-old culture combined with modern day innovations.
