Hotel Design inspired by Bhutanese farmhouses; specific elements of Bhutanese dzong architecture have been incorporated into the design of Zhiwa Ling Ascent but overall the look is modern and polished. Smoothed natural stone, clay masonry and native timbers clad the exterior. The hotel is modest in size with an emphasis on a personal connection, created by the many open spaces throughout the building. Zhiwa Ling Ascent is an ambitious project conceived by Austrain architect Irene Ott-Reinisch and relised through a joint collaboration between Bhutanese and Austrian project planners. The property is located above Mutithang, the Beverly hill of Bhutan, serenely located amidst pine trees with vast space for you to stretch your legs on walks around.
