From a delicious buffet breakfast with freshly baked bread to a three course dinner at the end of an exciting day, the Lingka will keep you in good spirits. On sunny days, take advantage of the outdoor dining option on our terrace, built on a wooden cantilever bridge. Gawa means Happiness. Banquet on local Bhutanese dishes such as ema datsi (traditional chillies and cheese) as well as Western cuisine.

With nice views over the stream, beautiful gardens, and lush Paro Valley, the Gawa will enchant you throughout your stay.
Gathering at the Mad Mond Bar for a drink before dinner at Lingka or Gawa Restaurant, or for after-hours fun, is a highlight for guests. Located adjacent to the reception in the main lobby, the Mad Monk Bar is an ideal venue for you to unwind. It is named after Drukpa Kunley (1455-1529) also known as The Divine Madman of the Dragon Lineage. Drukpa Kunley was a great master of Mahamudra in the Drukpa Kagyu Buddhist tradition. He became famous for his teaching methods, using outrageous behavior and ribald humor in order to awaken people he met and free them from conventional morality and self-obsession!
