Woke in the morning to a low fog over the river and birds chirping at the window. Loved sitting on the...

The hotel was very peaceful and the staff very attentive to your needs. The food was 5 stars. If in Bhutan please book with Uma Punakha, well worth the value. Bed and room was so clean and elegant. Thank you Uma Punakha

The most memorable thing about the hotel is the view from the room balcony. The rooms are very small by wife seriously hurting her toes on the foot of the bed because of sqeezing past our cases in the night. The bathrooms again are small in comparison with other luxury hotels, the wc being in the main bathroom so it...

We arrived in Punakha with the family of 6 and were so happy to be upgraded to the Garden Villa.

Certainly the Uma Como hotels are the best in Bhutan. Comfort and tranquility from the moment you enter. Excellent cuisine, rooms with fabulous views, staff who are genuinely friendly and efficient, no need to contemplate staying elsewhere. Just lie back and enjoy it.

The setting could not be better. Although it's an awful 5 hour bumpy drive from paro, the view and the property is worth it. The property faces the valley and river. The sun rises directly in front of the hotel and the clouds roll over the mountains surrounding it. Absolutely stunning.
