A rainbow appeared above the Himalayan mountains while I was trying out archery, the national sport. View of the highest mountain in Bhutan when looking out of the window in the room. Stunning sunset over the valley in Paro. Traditional hot stone bath in the 5-star hotel and massage options. That and all in Naksel Boutique Hotel and Spa!
Naksel Boutique Hotel and Spa is definitely a luxurious quiet accommodation when you are in Paro, Bhutan. It is a great resort for couples, family or a group of friends.
About Naksel Boutique Hotel and Spa
My favourite part of the hotel is that you have 4 huge rooms in this large mansion. The rooms include a balcony, large bed, sitting area, huge wardrobes, bathtub and huge toilet. But that’s not it! 4 of these rooms are located in 1 large mansion. It’s perfect for a group of friends travelling together or family, as you can get your own personal mansion.
The rooms are extremely huge. The full-length windows are a great touch as the view of the rooms is beyond stunning. You wake up to the sunrays on the Himalayan mountains. You can even see the highest peak of Bhutan on a clear day!
Outdoor Sitting and Partying Area
There is a huge lobby with the restaurant and bar. But my favourite part is the outdoor space where you can drink, eat or just chill. Luis and I were drinking there while we waited for the rest to finish their massage. We proceeded to this little room and continue partying when the rest arrived! The outdoor sitting area is also great for mornings as June and I watched the sky light up.
We were also lucky enough to watch the local Bhutanese dance in the outdoor sitting area. These are festival dances and songs that they sing during rituals, festivals and partying.
Experience in Naksel Boutique Hotel and Spa
This 5-star hotel has to be my favourite hotel in Bhutan so far. The building is designed by the owner and everything is made in a local architecture with a touch of the Western design. There are other super fancy hotels around, but I feel that they are way too Western in design.
My favourite part of the hotel is the rooms. Honestly, there rooms left me dumbfounded. They are seriously huge with the stunning view of the mountains. It was a long day and I needed a bath. I went to the toilet to find a huge bathtub with their own high-quality toiletries. As the night fell, I chilled outside the balcony, enjoying the early autumn breeze, looking at the stars above. I don’t think it can get any better!
The other thing that this hotel is highly recommended is that you can try out the national sport, archery. You can also pick apples that are growing everywhere!
Value of Naksel Boutique Hotel and Spa
This 5-star hotel is not the cheapest option in Paro, Bhutan, but it is definitely worth it. There are 2 seasons in Bhutan – high and low, and the prices differ. It is about US125 per night for an entire room on top of the amount you have to pay in Bhutan.
