Swiss Guest house in Bhutan is a guest house in the most beautiful town of Bhutan, Bhumthang. A very serene Himalayan town and a perfect place to unwind from the hectic routine life. One of the most prominent names in Bhutan would be Swiss Guest House. Located at a elevated level on entry to Bhumthang this was a property where all Swiss Nationals used to hangout in 70s-80s. The same has been turned into a Guest House accommodating guests with a true class of hospitality.

Food here is mostly western with multi cuisine menu. Hotel staff is really courteous enough to hear your preferences and will try their best to please your taste buds. Property also house a bar where the unique Red Panda Beer is served. Red Panda beer is a product of Bhumthang brewery which was again started by Tashi’s father in law, the same gentleman who hailed from Switzerland and made Bhutan his home. Food should not be an issue at all.
