Dhensa sits in the heart of the tranquil and lush Punakha Valley. Flanked by thick pine forests, it overlooks the Punakha river, and hundreds of paddy fields that
stair-step down to the valley floor.

Our 24 suites are set in 6 cottages, all with private balconies. The spacious interiors are deliberately understated and designed for the modern traveller.

We hope that the peace and tranquility you experience at Dhensa, will help you reconnect with yourself.


Punakha is the old capital of Bhutan. It is known for having one of the country’s most impressive and beautiful fortresses, the Punakha Dzong. This was constructed by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel, the founder of Bhutan, in 1637-1638.  

Punakha is also known for being one of Bhutan’s most beautiful valleys. It is Bhutan’s warmest valley and is home to lush forests, bountiful rice fields and serene temples. 

We believe Punakha is the perfect base for your travels in Bhutan. 

Our restaurant offers home-style Bhutanese cooking, as well as a variety of Western and Asian favorites. Our menus are created using local and organic produce.

Curl up and enjoy your favorite story in the privacy of your own balcony, or simply watch the world go by from your suite. At Dhensa, we ensure that our rooms provide the ideal sleeping environment.
