Another international hotel chain, Dusit, has just opened its doors in Bhutan.
dusitD2 Yarkay Thimphu held its soft opening on Wednesday in the capital Thimphu. Located right in the heart of town, the hotel is the international chain’s first foray into the country and is the largest internationally-branded hotel in Bhutan too, with 83 guest rooms and suites.
Drawing inspiration from the beloved national folktale of the Four Harmonious Friends - four animals who work together to harvest fruit from a magical tree - each guest floor is of the hotel is dedicated to a different animal from the tale. The guest rooms and suites feature colorful and contemporary motifs to match the theme.
