The Majestic Taj Tashi Hotel
"Taj Tashi, a joint venture of the Tashi Group of Companies and Taj Leisure Hotels, India, opens in the capital today to become the country’s first five-star hotel.
The Taj Tashi-Bhutan, a 66-room hotel including 9 suites, with dramatic hand-painted walls provides the perfect foothold for a visitor to discover Bhutan’s many wonders.
Reflecting Bhutan’s rich heritage and architecture, the hotel maintains a delicate balance of traditional Bhutanese design with contemporary elegance.
The rooms offer a majestic view of mountains surrounding Thimphu valley and inside guests will find every modern comfort and facility – from the spa to swimming pool, elegant conference facilities and multi-cuisine dining – in a setting that retains the charm and artistic sensibilities of Bhutan’s art and culture.
Guests can savor traditional Bhutanese cuisine at the specialty restaurant known as Chig-ja-gye (hundred and eight), reflect on the day’s experience at Rimps – the airy tea lounge, or enjoy a drink at Ara – the bar.
“The Tashi Group has embarked on an ambitious project of having the finest hotels in Bhutan. This association with the Taj Hotels is the first step in that direction. We remain committed toward promoting the best that Bhutan has to offer and are confident that this long-term partnership with Taj Hotels will enhance our efforts in marketing this unique destination,” said Wangchuk Dorji, vice chairman of the Tashi Group of Companies."

wow... wonderful pictures. thank you so much for posting them. These the best pictures of the hotel. Looks like there is still a lot of work that needs to be done, but I am sure they'll get to it. Kinda of annoyed at them for not letting you take pictures inside. Hope this doesn't become of those places where they only allow and worship foreigners while regular Bhutanese are treated with disdain.
it would be a real shame then.

I look forward to seeing what is it like inside the hotel. In regards to the forthcoming big day i.e. 21st February, see what you can and can't do and do what you think is the best, there's no any pressure from me, my friend. I am justhoping to see some pics of the march-pass, dances, cham and the most importantly some shots of His Majesty, you know? And remember, they don't have to be perfect, clear or close-up shots, you know? Ok, I shall leave you on your own here now. Looking forward to hearing from you again soon.

Take care and Thanks for making us live back in our Beautiful Bhutan.

Rangchen Drukgi Gyelkhap!

how much do you think it will cost to stay there?

ugyen said...

I have no idea about it, i guess it will be expensive, I did Check TashiDelek Magazine where they have features the Taj Tashi Hotel Review and there is nothing saying about the Pricing. Will Do another post on Taj Tashi Later on when i get an opportunity to take some of the Interior Pictures.
