    Le Meridien Hotels & Resorts recently announced the opening of Le Meridien Paro, Riverfront, the brand’s second hotel in the Kingdom of Bhutan following the successful opening of Le Méridien Thimphu late last year.In conjunction with the highly anticipated hotel opening, renowned American photographer Gray Malin has unveiled his newest series, “Bhutan, Land of Happiness,” which will contribute to Le Meridien brand’s Follow Me partnership – a multi-faceted global art collaboration with that brings compelling video art installations and still photography into Le Méridien hotels around the world.

    Le Meridien Paro, Riverfront is situated on the edge of the Paro River, offering panoramic views of the Eastern Himalayas. The intimate hotel features 59 contemporary guestrooms and suites, all designed with a classic Bhutanese point of view. With an idyllic swimming pool, state-of-the-art fitness center and signature Explore Spa, the hotel is poised to become the creative hub in the destination. Located ten minutes from Paro International Airport, the only airport in Bhutan, Paro is home to several sacred fortresses and hidden monasteries, including Bhutan’s iconic Paro Taktsang (Tiger’s Nest) as well as Ta Dzong, the National Museum and the hotel’s Unlock Art™ partner, allowing guests of Le Méridien Paro complimentary access.

    Located in Bhutan’s capital city, Le Meridien Thimphu is a thirty minute drive from the breathtaking sights of Paro. With 78 thoughtfully-designed guestrooms and suites, the hotel is the largest in the country.

    Both hotels are captured creatively in Malin’s latest photo series, “Bhutan, Land of Happiness”, which juxtaposes the iconic landscape and traditional architecture of Bhutan with his modern interpretation of joy and happiness.
