THE POSTCARD DEWA
Twenty minutes from Bhutan’s capital city, you’ll find The Postcard Dewa. Nestled in a forest, this Bhutanese mountain hideout is just close enough to take in the city of Thimphu, but far enough from the bustle. With no more than 15 luxurious rooms, the hotel is the perfect place to wind down in the lap of nature and enjoy pristine views of the Khasadrapchu valley and Raidak River.
All of the hotel’s 13 rooms and two luxury suites are set against the backdrop of dramatic mountain vistas. Ranging from 995 sq ft to 2,100 sq ft the rooms are generously spaced. Rich in natural light and traditional details, they even come with their own private sit outs from which to take in the surrounds. The Raidak Suite, our most impressive yet, even offers a private garden, terrace and an intimate dining gazebo — perfect for precious time with the family.
The spread at The Postcard Dewa is deeply influenced by Bhutan’s culinary heritage. The menu features traditional dishes as well as a fine selection of locally-brewed beers and spirits. All of which can be enjoyed al-fresco or in the hotel’s dining room. For something a little more intimate, take your cup of tea or a post-meal digestive in the cozy confines of The Living Room. Our chefs are also happy to organise private dining requests by the river, a bonfire or inside the hotel.
The Postcard Dewa’s idyllic mountain surrounds make it the perfect place to slow
down with meditation and yoga. Therapies at the spa include treatments that borrow from traditional Bhutanese practices like a hot stone bath, that’s perfect for sore muscles. Fitness conscious guests can also enjoy a workout in the gym or a relaxing swim in the temperature-controlled swimming pool.
Mountains and monasteries make up much of the travel itinerary here. Take the lush hiking trails to ancient Buddhist temples or tour the capital city’s many sacred sites and colourful market stalls. But if you’re after some private time with nature, then our chefs are happy to curate the perfect picnic basket for you to enjoy by the Raidak River.
