Best Western International is expanding its iconic brand further across Asia, with the launch of its first ever hotel in the stunning Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan.
The company has signed an agreement for a brand new 41-room upscale hotel in the country’s capital, Thimphu.
Expected to welcome its first guests in mid-2015, this new-build property will join the company’s growing collection of upscale BEST WESTERN PLUS hotels.
It will feature a selection of high-end guest facilities, including a fitness centre, spa, bar, and a terrace lounge with views across Thimphu’s low-rise skyline.
Guests will be able to dine in a choice to two restaurants, including one traditional Bhutanese option with outdoor seating. The hotel will also feature a conference room with meeting facilities.
Best Western’s entry into Bhutan marks yet another milestone in the company’s Asian expansion strategy. Late last year, Best Western entered Myanmar for the first time, and already this year it has made its debut in Sri Lanka.
