Twenty minutes from Bhutan’s capital city, you’ll find The Postcard Dewa. Nestled in a forest, this Bhutanese mountain hideout is just close enough to take in the city of Thimphu, but far enough from the bustle. With no more than 15 luxurious rooms, the hotel is the perfect place to wind down in the lap of nature and enjoy pristine views of the Khasadrapchu valley and Wang Chhu River. All of the hotel's 13 rooms and two luxury suites are set against the backdrop of dramatic mountain vistas. Ranging from 995 sq ft to 2,100 sq ft the rooms are generously spaced. Rich in natural light and traditional details, they even come with their own private sit-outs from which to take in the surrounds. The Dewa Suite, our most impressive yet, even offers a private garden, terrace and an intimate dining gazebo — perfect for precious time with the family. The spread at The Postcard Dewa is deeply influenced by Bhutan’s culinary heritage. The menu features traditional dishes as well as a fine selection of locally-brewed beers and spirits. All of which can be enjoyed al-fresco or in the hotel’s dining room. The Postcard Dewa’s idyllic mountain surrounds make it the perfect place to slow down with meditation and yoga. Therapies at the spa include treatments that borrow from traditional Bhutanese practices like a hot stone bath, that’s perfect for sore muscles. Fitness conscious guests can also enjoy a workout in the gym or a relaxing swim in the temperature-controlled swimming pool. Mountains and monasteries make up much of the travel itinerary here. Take the lush hiking trails to ancient Buddhist temples or tour the capital city’s many sacred sites and colorful market stalls.

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.

The Staff is Great.. The Chief Harsh n Team are just fabulous, always over delivers then we asked for, like making special desserts for us and refilling the snacks in the room even without asking.. TJ was always on top of everything, he made sure everything we required was already there and even he helped us to arrange certain things from market on very short-notice even though he didn’t had to.. And of course the folk dances and amenities were just next-level.. And finally the main part the location of the hotel is too good that you can get great Instagrammable pictures from any angle .. Truly Loved the whole experience!! Definitely a must visit hotel.. ❤️❤️

Thi trip was one of the best trips for me which especially included the hospitality of The Postcard Dewa. Every staff was so attentive, caring and sweet. They set the bars very high in their area of work. I have never felt so much at home. From food to care to convenience: everything is there. If you are someone looking to heal, connect and experience the warmth of life please chose The Postcard Dewa. Chose this place if you are planning to go to Bhutan. This is an experience one must definitely have. I love this place so much that I am happily taking out time to genuinely write a feedback out of gratitude for the wonderful experience and time I had there. And I repeat, I had the best time at The Postcard Dewa and I look forward to visiting the place again very soon. How does it get better than this and what else is possible? ✨🥰🌱

We stayed at Postcard Dewa when we were in Thimphu, and they really set the bar very high for the rest of our trip's hotels! We were pampered so much by the staff; everyone really paid attention to guests and went beyond "service!" Special mention to: - The general manager, TJ, whose handwritten card gave us a very welcoming impression when we arrived. We met him later and found him to be thoughtful and insightful. We find that how well the hotel is managed reflects his ability to lead the team. - The executive chef, Harsh, is an even more gracious host. We met him during the first night when we were welcomed to the hotel, and over the next days he prepared sumptuous feasts for us. First meal was very memorable - a mix of local Bhutanese stews and curries. Second dinner was just as special - different momo dumplings and noodle soup. Thank you for giving us a very positive introduction to Bhutanese cuisine! - Tashi gave us an in-depth tour of the facilities, including the pool, sauna area, and all around the room. - The room we got is amazing. It had a bath, a very good selection of coffee, tea, local snacks, etc. It also had heated floors - perfect for the winter! But beyond all these, we appreciated the very many personal touches they had for us - handwritten notes, postcards that we mailed, cake and wine, etc. Overall, we love that they went above and beyond, setting the tone for the rest of our trip - perhaps too well!

We were in the most warm hospitality and experienced the magical Bhutan beginning with this beautiful property called the postcard thimpu. Nothing could have matched the way they took care of us above and beyond ! Right from the beginning soon after booking our stay the general manager TJ personally followed up about our program and arrival etc to make sure we get all what we need when we arrive ! We got the most warm Bhutanese welcome by the entire hotel staff when we arrived . And the rooms were ready heated so we feel comfortable and so beautiful and aesthetically appealing having every Bhutanese glimpse in the decor . The welcome dessert was an added delight. The front office especially Rashi and roopa staff was always around to ask if we need anythin anytime which was very touching . To be highlighted is the culinary experience which took us on a Bhutanese culture by chef harsh was magical . Chef harsh made sure we have a literal food coma throughout our trip! From local cuisine to gujarati khamani this guy had magic in his hands to create the most delectable food and present it like an art on the plate ! Tj the general manager is such a kind and generous person to make sure we have nothing to worry and have the most memorable times while at the postcard ! From organizing a surprise private picnic experience by the river to the morning hike he took us to ! I have no words to describe the best. My heartfelt thanks to the entire postcard dewa team for being so nice to us and creating a magnificent memorable and most delightful stay in thimpu. Do not go anywhere when travelling to thimpu to experience the ultimate hospitality words can’t describe . Our special mention about the beautiful most well behave PAW-GANG who gave us a very kind company for our walks and sitting in the sun! Big big thanks 🙏🙏 there’s no chouce other than postcard when in thinpu and I can’t wait to be back again soon to make more memories here
