DestinAsian - - FLASHBACK -

Sched­uled to open on De­cem­ber 17, the Na­tional Day of Bhutan, the first Dusit prop­erty in the Hi­malayan king­dom draws on the lo­cal fable of the Four Har­mo­nious Friends, which de­scribes an ele­phant, a rab­bit, a mon­key, and a par­tridge work­ing to­gether to har­vest fruit from a mag­i­cal tree. This beloved na­tional folk­tale is the in­spi­ra­tion for the ho­tel’s con­tem­po­rary decor, with each of the four guest floors ded­i­cated to a dif­fer­ent an­i­mal in the tale. Dusit’s Thai-in­spired ap­proach to hos­pi­tal­ity is de­liv­ered by staff mem­bers wear­ing hand-wo­ven gho and kira out­fits, while in-room mas­cots can be bought to sup­port lo­cal char­i­ties. In-house fa­cil­i­ties in­clude a spa, a gym, a night­club, and the first authen­tic Thai restau­rant in Bhutan. The prop­erty is lo­cated within easy walk­ing dis­tance from Thim­phu’s Clock Tower Square, and a short drive from at­trac­tions such as the pop­u­lar week­end mar­ket, the Me­mo­rial Chorten, and the im­pos­ing fortress of Tashichho Dzong.
