Architecture

Bhutanese architecture steeped in tradition

Five years in the making, Zhiwa Ling Heritage is a tribute to the ornate architectural arts of Bhutan. Every part of the hotel is handmade, from the massive hand-carved wooden beams to the colourful, hand-painted ceilings and walls. Over sixty local artisans were employed to lovingly handcraft its exterior and interior design, envisioned by architect Peter Kampf.

The main building is built in the tradition of a Bhutanese Dzong (Fortress) with intricate carvings, paintings and antique Bhutanese textile collections. This traditional Bhutanese architecture and design flows throughout the property and also features in our junior suites, one-bedroom suites, and The Royal Raven Suite.

Zhiwa Ling Heritage is an exuberant celebration of the best of a 1,000-year-old culture combined with modern day innovations. Visit Zhiwa Ling Heritage today.
