I have stayed at many beautiful hotels this year and I have hardly written about any of them! It is time to set it right and I start with the beautiful Terma Linca Resort, Thimphu. What blew me completely away was its location! It is right next to the Thimphu River.
The small concrete path that you see in this picture is part of the Terma Linca Resort. It is this close to Thimphu River. I managed to walk twice along this path and enjoy the serene atmosphere by the river.
I had this huge room to myself. From the window I could see tall sunflowers and the Thimphu River. It was a comfortable room, with good supply of tea and coffee. The bathroom had a bath tub as well. By my standards this was surely a five star property but the actual rating is four star as it does not have a swimming pool. But then in Bhutan the weather is not too conducive to having a swimming pool.
My walks took me to the edge of the resort and I found this beautiful nook which was running amok with yellow wild flowers. How I wanted to have a meal on these benches but I never found time!
There was a huge weeping willow tree in the premises and they set cozy table in the hollow of it. This was my absolute favorite corner in the entire hotel. How I wish I at least managed a cup of coffee along with a book here. I did sit down quietly on one of the chairs for a few minutes before I was required elsewhere!
This is the close up of the view from my room and it was absolutely gorgeous! There was a bench in front of this spot too. I did manage to sit here for a while and just listen to the river flowing by. Terma Linca is a gorgeous property and if you are looking for a hotel away from the city, look no further!
Terma Linca Resort is part of the Makemytrip’s Premium Bhutan Package. I was invited by Makemytrip to Bhutan.
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
