Hotels in Bhutan are rated according to a National 5 Star Rating System. All Tour Operators are required to provide their guests with a minimum of 3 Star accommodations so you can be assured of your comfort. Most hotels provide their guests with Television, Room Service, Fitness Centers, Spas, and Wi-fi. However, the exact services available will vary from hotel to hotel.

In order to ensure that all visitors to Bhutan receive high-quality accommodations and services, we have initiated a 5-Star Rating System that classifies the various hotels and resorts operating in the country.

The system is referred to as the ‘Hotel Star System’ and it ranks the accommodations on a scale of 1-5 stars based on an exhaustive set of criteria.

Farm Stay

Visitors also have the option of spending a night in a traditional Bhutanese Farm House. Please visit our home-stay and farm-stay directory to see a list of our tourist standard home-stay and farm-stay accommodations. Agriculture is still one of the major sources of livelihood among the Bhutanese people and a farm-stay will give you an excellent glimpse into the day-to-day life of a typical Bhutanese family.

You’ll be able to observe age-old Bhutanese farming traditions as the family goes about its daily tasks. You’ll enjoy delicious home-cooked meals and the unparalleled hospitality of a Bhutanese host.

All officially sanctioned and listed Farm-stays are located in the gorgeous Bhutanese countryside amidst lush farmland far from the noise and crowds of population centers. In order to experience a traditional life, electricity and running water are not available at Farm-Stays. Hot water can be provided by the family but will be served in a wash basin/bowl.
