The first hotel of its kind in Bhutan

Retreat from the hustle and bustle of Thimphu city to Zhiwa Ling Ascent - Bhutan’s first contemporary concept hotel. Located just outside the centre of the city, Zhiwa Ling Ascent welcomes you to relax in a park-like setting with panoramic views.

Enjoy first class hospitality by an attentive team of professionals and trainees from the Royal Institute of Hospitality working toward a qualification in the hospitality industry. Relax in one of 20 spacious rooms designed in the most energy efficient way to capture all day sunlight and take in superb views of the surrounding scenery. Zhiwa Ling Ascent is an ambitious project conceived by Austrian architect Irene Ott-Reinisch and realised through a joint collaboration between Bhutanese and Austrian project planners. It is wholly Bhutanese owned and operated.
