Excellent hotel in Thimphu

Review of Pemako Thimphu
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 Mar 2024
Wonderful hotel and the staff are just as wonderful. We were welcomed with a blessing and treated to a private cultural show. You have an opportunity to be immersed in the Bhutanese culture. They provided traditional clothing for us to wear to dinner. And the dinner was a tasting menu of traditional Bhutanese food. It was a highlight of our stay! It is a very clean hotel in the heart of the city. I highly recommend it.

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.

The hotel is amazing. The level of service and the crew are so incredible, they all make you typically feel in Bhutan. Santosh and Tshering are fantastic and made our journey the best! We do recommend to everyone who will stay in Timphu. We will be Back!

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!

Room tip: Indian cards don’t work in Bhutan so make sure you carry enough cash or talk to the bank in advance!
