Zhiwa Ling Heritage Hotel: A Haven of Elegance and Tranquility in Paro Valley

Located in the scenic valley of Paro, and just 15 minutes’ drive from Bhutan’s only international airport, the Zhiwa Ling Heritage Hotel is a traditional Bhutanese architectural style complex with elegant tapering stone walls and ornately hand carved and painted wood. With a spacious garden with trees and flowers Zhiwa Ling has 45 well-appointed suite rooms, an indoor swimming pool, spa and a view of the rocky cliffs that lead to the iconic Tigers’ Nest Temple.

An outdoor hot stone bath and a meditation house with a view of Tiger’s Nest add to the charm. Traditional in design but modern in comfort, the hotel is all about relaxation in the outdoor spaces, cozying around the fireplace in the bar, or enjoying a fine meal in one of the elegant restaurants. Within the hotel, a Buddhist shrine built from restored timber of a 450-year-old monastery adds a sense of calm and spirituality.
