BHUTAN will see the launch of the first Best Western International property in the country by mid-2015 with the opening of a Best Western Plus hotel in Thimphu.
Best Western has signed an agreement to manage the new-build, 41-room hotel. Key facilities will include a fitness centre, spa, bar, conference room with meeting facilities, and a terrace lounge looking out on to the capital’s low-rise skyline.
Guests can choose between the hotel’s two restaurants including a traditional Bhutanese option with outdoor seating.
Best Western has been entering new markets under its Asian expansion strategy in the last couple of years. The hotel management company made its Myanmar debut last year and opened in Sri Lanka this year.
