Feel At Home At Golden Roots Resort And Spa, Paro

Located away from the heart of Paro, Golden roots Resort and Spa is the perfect place to relax and soak in the natural beauty of Bhutan. The resort is more like a homestay and is equipped with a number of amenities. Paro is a small town and it is easy to reach the resort.


Ideal for


The resort is perfect for families, couples, solo travelers and business travelers. It is a budget property located at an ideal distance from the city. You are never too far or too near to the city. The hospitality and service is commendable. If you want to get away from the sound of the city and from the hustle and bustle of your life, head to this resort.


Location


The resort is set amidst lush greenery and is away from the distractions of the town. It has a seven acre compound where it will offer you a peaceful environment and ensure a comfortable stay. The hotel has traditional architecture but modern amenities. I was welcomed by two gorgeous dogs at the resort and I knew I would definitely have a wonderful stay there.


Rooms


Golden roots has 33 rooms that are elegantly designed and well maintained. The rooms are spacious and equipped with basic amenities like a heater, television, tea/coffee maker, WiFi and spacious work space. The room is very spacious for two or three guests. There is an outside seating area from where you can gaze at the might mountains and soak in the silence. It is the best place to sit and sip a cup of traditional Bhutanese green tea. Additionally, the bathroom was clean and well maintained.








Food


The food served at the resort is above average. Do not expect extravagant dishes served to you for the buffet dinner or for your breakfast. There are limited options for breakfast and dinner, however, you can ask for a specific dish if you are keen on trying Bhutanese cuisine. There will be a lot of Bhutanese cuisine and non veg dishes. The restaurant area is vast and can fit in about 50 guests at a time.




The resort has a newly opened Spa (opened in Feb 2019) where different massages are offered by experienced professionals. You can choose to enjoy a massage at the spa or inside your room. The massage offered by the professional is relaxing and stress relieving. I would highly recommend you to try one of their massages.



Service


Majority staff at the property include women. I was elated to see this everywhere in Bhutan! The service at the resort is commendable and quick. The staff goes out of their way to ensure your comfort.



Verdict


If you are looking for a budget option for your stay in Paro, choose Golden Roots Resort and Spa. Let me be clear, it is nothing extravagant but it will make you feel at home. The service and the attitude of the staff will make your stay worth it. It lies close to some of the important sight seeing points in Paro and will guarantee a peaceful stay.
