Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was quite shocked to know Tashi Taj is now changed to Pemako. The facilities and services were beyond what I expected. Thanks to the entire team for making our stay such a wonderful experience. Would definitely recommend Pemako to anyone visiting Bhutan, Thimphu. I was told they have a branch in Punakha as well, but I haven't had the chance to experience it during my visit.

Our stay at the Pemako Thimpu was wonderful in every way. The hotel is beautiful and in a great location to explore the city, the food (both breakfast and dinner) was delicious, and we really appreciated the attentiveness and friendliness of the entire staff. We also enjoyed the cultural show they put on which showcased traditional Bhutanese music and dance accompanied by some snacks. Special shoutout to Pema Zangmo, Tshering Pem, Padma, and Santosh in the front office and the entire food and beverage team who even accommodated a last minute request for a traditional Bhutanese meal. I would highly recommend staying here for anyone visiting Thimpu.

We had a wonderful time here! The staff was courteous! Food was delicious especially Indian cuisine. We celebrated our wedding anniversary there and the chef prepared a lovely truffle cake for us. Our suite was beautiful! The heated pool and the gym was also very good, it was spacious and had all the machines. Kudos to the chef and the entire staff!

Extremely comfortable in a beautiful setting. Backroads Tour Co. set us up here, and it was an excellent choice. They even arranged for a monk to bless our journey upon arrival. The meals were all good, and the laundry service was first rate. We were with a group of 18, and everyone seemed very pleased with our stay at the Pemako.

2 enjoyable nights. The welcome greeting and check-in was really nice. It included a Buddhist blessing! All members of staff were very friendly and professional and displayed Bhutanese hospitality everywhere we went. Spectacular lobby overlooks the equally impressive dining area. It’s an impressive building. The hotel’s cultural evening and wearing the Bhutanese national dress, Gho, for dinner was an excellent introduction to the holiday. The food quality through our stay was 5* with an equally high standard of room accommodation. The location of the hotel made a walk to Thimphu’s Street life very easy. I highly recommend this hotel.

The location was an unpleasant surprise. Although in the picture on the website, it appears that the Hotel is situated on an open space over a Hill. But actually, it is in the middle of Thimpu City. Hidden behind a building on the main road. After this, it was excellent service by Mr. Santosh of the front office who was very efficient and provided us with, all the personal touch. I must also thank Ms. Revati at Restaurant Ara, and The Chef for catering to all our requests. I found the best quality food at Taj Tashi, all over Bhutan. Comfortable & luxurious room, exuding old-world Charms. However, it was a strange feeling to find the Telephone instrument displaying room no.210, in actually room no. 308 which was our room. Definitely not expected in a TAJ property.

The experience of staying at Hotel Taj is nothing short of extraordinary. From the moment you step into the elegant lobby, you are greeted with a warm welcome that sets the tone for your entire stay. The Taj brand is renowned for its impeccable hospitality, and every aspect of the hotel reflects this commitment to excellence.
