The 45-room Zhiwa Ling Heritage combines the sensibilities of a fine Bhutanese guesthouse with the best of 21st Century technology and was the first upmarket heritage style resort in the Paro Valley to be owned and operated by a Bhutanese enterprise.

The spa offers all the amenities of a modern fitness centre – sauna, steam room, gym – as well as a traditional Bhutanese outdoor hot-stone bath. There is a Business Centre, and a Tea House, two fully-equipped conference rooms and a Meditation House.

One restaurant specializes in contemporary international cuisine, the other classic Bhutanese dishes and everyone gathers at the Mad Monk Bar for after-hours fun.

Honouring the spiritual heritage of this ancient Buddhist kingdom, a temple has been built into the second floor of the hotel, made with 450-year-old timbers from the famous Gangtey Monastery, the crowning glory of this new ten-acre cultural landmark in the quiet Paro Valley where Zhiwa Ling fully lives up to its name: Place of Peace.
