Hotels in Bhutan

Bhutan has a strict policy and a set of rules and regulations to manage hotels running in Bhutan. Government has ruled that only hotels, which have three, stars rating and above can host tariff-paying tourists. Two star hotels that have failed to get three star have been given a period of a year to upgrade themselves to a three star hotel. The recent evaluation of hotels was done by the a joint team of Bhutan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI), Tourism Council Of Bhutan (TCB), Hotels Association of Bhutan and a foreign consultant from Australia, Dr Raffling. According to TCB, the rating criteria included international best practices adapted to Bhutanese needs, local aesthetics and incorporation of eco-friendly elements.
