Best places to stay in Bhutan

Bhutan is undeniably a unique place to visit partly because of the country’s standpoint to all visitors. Although it is a tiny country, high-end hotels and resorts are scattered all over Bhutan’s tourist destinations. Normally, when a traveler books a Bhutan holiday after paying a daily fee, it is an all-inclusive package that includes cost of their hotel, meals, transportation, guide and driver. The minimum daily fee, however, includes a 3-star hotel for accommodation. If a foreign tourist is willing to pay an extra surcharge, then it is possible to upgrade the accommodation to the one of their choice. You can always ask your agency to upgrade your hotel with a higher level of comfort to a boutique range of luxurious hotels or resorts with spa and yoga facilities. Prices will vary considerably depending on the hotel standard, travel season and location of the hotel.
