The Gangtey Palace was built over a hundred years ago by His Highness Dawa Penjor, Uncle of the first King of Bhutan, and Penlop of Paro Valley. After which the palace belonged to the Royal Family until 1930 when it was given to a prominent aristocratic family. The hotel therefore has an impressive pedigree and is one of the oldest hotels in the country. It also has a fantastic position in Paro Valley looking directly across at the dzong. As you might expect with an historic hotel the rooms are interesting, and quirky, offering either valley or courtyard views. Each has a private bathroom and heating. The hotel has a bar & lounge area, a main restaurant and a new garden restaurant.
