Where to stay in Bhutan

Hotels

Traditional hotels, cottages and guest houses approved by the Department of Tourism are usually comfortable with hot and cold running water, electricity and sometimes room telephones though international calls may be via reception. There are a few luxury hotels but these do not come cheap. Accommodation is booked by Tour Operators. Expect a surcharge on the basic rate for upmarket resorts and be aware that at festival time, hotels are booked long in advance so you may need to be flexible. Tourists incorporating a trek in their itinerary may camp. For further information, contact the BTCL (see Contact Addresses).
