Dhensa, Punakha

Located in the heart of the luscious Punakha Valley, Dhensa provides the perfect combination of innocence and peace that permeates everything about Bhutan. With 24 suites all boasting handmade Bhutanese artefacts and lavish interiors, Dhensa offers you the perfect abode to relax and replenish your mind and explore this enchanting region of the world.


Situated on the hillside of the Punakha Valley, Dhensa is only a 15-minute drive from Punakha Dhong and a moderate 3-hour drive from Thimpu Airport. For the culture vultures among us, Dhensa is only a five-minute trek away from the magnificent Sangchhen Dorji Lhuendrup Lhakhang Nunnery which his home to one of the biggest and most spectacular bronze statues of Chenrigzig in Bhutan.


Dhensa’s 24 suites marry contemporary design with this Himalayan Kingdom’s ancient and alluring ways. All of the 45 square metre suites are bright, vivacious and flaunt beautiful Bhutanese handmade pieces all accompanied by a lookout from the rooftop of the world onto one of the Mother Nature’s most glorious national treasures.

Why we like it

There is no wonder that Dhensa literally means ‘Heavenly Abode’ in Bhutanese and this is depicted in their magnificent spa. Revive your senses and restore your spirit with some of Dhensa’s very own hand-blended oils after a long day of hiking, rafting or biking around the beautiful area that Dhensa is located in. Known as the World’s Kingdom of Happiness, we have no doubt that it will not take long for Bhutan to mesmerize you and leave you with unforgettable memories.
