The Druk Deothjung hotel is a cozy family run establishment catering to all tourists visiting Trashigang. As you travel east in Bhutan, quality lodging is rare to find, if not available at all, the Deothjung Hotel offers basic comfortable accommodation facilities.
The property represents traditional Bhutanese architecture and dotted with Bhutanese themes; highlight being, in front of the hotel stands a huge prayer wheel where one can witness local going about their morning prayers. The important places of interest are easily accessible from the hotel, including the villages of Merak and Sakten, home to nomadic tribe “Brokpas”. From the property one can be a spectator of beautifully views of the valley and in the courtyard of the stands a bon fire pit which is lit during cold nights.

As Bezi points out so well... I associate this name with the resort 2 km outside Trashigang. We stayed at the 'main' building (on top of the hill). The staff are helpful. The Druk 11000 was fairly priced. The wifi was free but bordering between slow and nonexistent (depending on distance from the lobby and number of logged-on guests [6 am worked pretty well...]). Our room was close to the dining room, so we had greasy food smells and a few bugs. But otherwise everything was fine.
After having returned from 16 days/15 nights in Bhutan (Samdrup Jongkhar, Trashigang, Autsho/Lhuentse, Mongar, Bumthang/Jakar, Trongsa, Punakha, Thimphu, Paro), the common theme for me is that eastern Bhutan is absolutely wonderful, but you don't travel there for the hotel rooms. If you want a Le Meridien or a Taj, then stay in Paro or Thimpu.
Hotel with the BEST decoration that we have stayed during our 16-day tour of Bhutan. Please see the photos attached and I am sure there is no dispute to the high quality and elaborative decorations. The room is also the BEST that we had stayed throughout the tour. Size is very big (see the photos again). The bathroom has a bath tub with good view. We even have a private conference room attached. Food is a healthy portion in the morning but sufficient for most people. The room unfortunately is at the end of the corridor and therefore has problem getting good WiFi signal from the lobby. There is no TV in the room but who needs a TV when the windows offer excellent view whole day.
– “Excellent decoration and good view”
This review is for Druk Deothjung Resort that is on top of a hill. A beautiful hotel with great views. We had stayed here two nights in their suite 222. The suite is luxurious and will make you forget that you are in the remote Eastern Bhutan where getting a decent room becomes a challenge. Moreover it is one of those few hotels in Bhutan which has the capacity to host several large groups at a single go.The food was great and was also customized for us on one occasion. Since we had gone to T.yatse from here , our guides arranged packed lunch from here which had been good and filling. The staff is warm and courteous. Like the resort a lot and would love to visit it again.
– “Great Stay”
The location is superb the rooms are clean, although the furniture has signs of wear down. Cleanness everywher and superb food it is on e of the highlights of every Bhutan trip after the bumpy and slow roads.

We stayed at this place for two nights once on our way to Thrumsingla and on our return journey . Do remember that when travelling through East Bhutan , you are far from the madding crowds and luxury hotels . But Druk (on top of the hill) is really like a place in paradise .
The first night , although we reached late , the hotel staff was ready with cups of hot lemon tea and an equally inviting hot dinner . We were booked for a standard double room which was really spacious and tidy.The bathroom was very large , neat and had running hot water.
The next morning since we were to leave early , they had packed our breakfast for us - cheese and egg sandwiches individually foil wrapped , boiled eggs and fresh bananas.
On our return journey as well , we were booked in a standard double room but were upgraded to a royal suite -Room 222 . One enters the large living room with a pantry and then the door opens into the bedroom which is about 1200 square feet . It has enormous wall to wall windows on all three sides overlooking the mountains and the Drangme Chu river.The bath room has a Bathtub and stocked with Toiletries and a Hair Dryer !
Overall , a well recommended Stay for Families or single travellers .
