The Detail

Located in a pine forest and offering fantastic views over Punakha, Dhensa is about a 15 minute drive from the main monastery and close to the Sangchhen Dorji Lhuendrup Lhakhang Nunnery. Dhensa means ‘heavingly abode’ in Bhutanese, and the designers have certainly drawn inspiration from the Aman and Uma properties in Bhutan, blending Bhutanese design with a modern artistic twist. The accommodations are spread out throughout the grounds and each cottage contains six rooms. The rooms are light and airy, offering an ample 45 metres of space with free-standing bathtubs and separate rain-forest showers. They also have flatscreen TVs and a minibar.  There is one restaurant serving a blend of Bhutanese and international fare, leading out to an outdoor terrace which is ideal for a pre-dinner aperitif or al fresco dining (with views). The Spa has two treatment rooms, steam room, outdoor Bhutanese hot stone bath and sauna, as well as offering yoga.
