Spotless room, extremely comfortable bed and amazing shower. The staff were extremely accommodating. Breakfast menu was plentiful. Will definitely stay here again in the future. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Dear Mr. Tony,

Kuzuzangpo La!

A very Happy New Year to you and your loved ones. Thank you for your lovely review and encouraging words. We are delighted that you enjoyed your Christmas-eve stay with us and that you also enjoyed our breakfast spread – we recently launched our Winter Menu and have introduced even more healthy breakfast options. Here at The Pema, we try to make seasonal revisions to our menus at least several times a year. We so look forward to welcoming you back again to Bhutan and The Pema soon.


Kadringche la,
Hem Monger

This is a beautiful hotel with wonderful staff. Everyone was very helpful, friendly and treated us with kindness. The hotel has a modern design while also incorporating the lovely Bhutanese culture. They have a delicious restaurant and a great cafe. I also took advantage for a spa treatment which truly had me pampered.

The Pema was a wonderful experience. Service was excellent, from the reception welcome tea, housekeeping, restaurant to checkout. Professional and seamless. Decor was warm and cozy, high quality. Excellent food, kudos to the chef! Great experience, we miss it!

Perfect place
A very good clean and nice hotel. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is brilliant the chef was ready to fix the food with less spices according to my request and the food was delicious best I had in long time.
There is a coffee shop at the hotel by the number of locals who come to buy cakes there I think it is the busiest in Bhutan. Breakfast is served in that coffee shop but takes a long time to be served. Except to that it is a perfect place.

Dear Excellency and Madam,

Kuzuzangpo La!

It was a privilege for all of us to host you both at The Pema during your stay in Bhutan. Thank you for choosing The Pema by Realm. We will always remember your time with us due to the most memorable and blessed events that took place during that period.

Therefore, thank you immensely for your heartfelt review. M Bistro is certainly the soul here at The Pema and we thoroughly enjoyed showcasing many festive desserts during the holiday season. We love to experiment and do our best to surprise all our friends and guests. We sincerely hope we will have an opportunity to curate more dining experiences for you both in the near future.

Until then, all of us wish you both good health and happiness in the New Year.


Kadringche la,
Hem Monger

A touch of luxury arriving in Bhutan! Lovely large room with courtesy fruit and treats and everything required to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. There is a spa in the basement, which I didn't have time to use, but I particularly loved the rooftop terrace area with bar and snack facilities open to the sunshine. I ate in the bistro cafe rather than the dining hall - small, friendly and quirky with a good menu choice for myself, a vegetarian, and a relaxing place to take breakfast with an outside area. I would certainly recommend to fellow travellers to Thimpu.
