Hotel Preview: Le Méridien Thimphu

Le Méridien Thimphu is without any doubt a really special property. Located in Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan, the new Starwood Hotel is a little tough to reach. The next airport is more than one hour away and even reaching this airport is anything but easy. Nevertheless, it’s worth having a look at Le Méridien Thimphu as the property looks just stunning!

When thinking of Asia, people usually mention countries like Indonesia, India, Japan or Thailand. Rarely anybody talks about Bhutan, one of the smallest and least developed states in Asia.
