Opening in 2018 or early 2019, Six Senses Bhutan will be one of Six Senses' most remarkable and spectacular openings in years. Bhutan remains one of Asia's most unspoiled and majestic locations; a hidden kingdom that retains a unique charm. Six Senses makes the most of this, with some of the most inspiring locations for their lodges that are peppered across the country.

There will only be 82 guest suites divided between all 5 lodges. Many of the lodges will offer spectacular views, especially the lodge in Punakha which is located overlooking the Mo Chu River and in Gangtey which has sweeping views over the Phobjika Valley. Expect to find infinity pools rising above verdant paddy-fields with views across to the luminous mountains.

It goes without saying that Six Senses will blend local architectural sensibilities and designs with the demands of the international guest, producing a harmony that only Six Senses Hotels seem to achieve. The paired back, uncluttered but extremely comfortable style will fit right in; Bhutan is a tasteful, authentic and a relatively modest nation and Six Senses plan to be incredibly sensitive to the remote Buddhist surroundings. Each lodge will have a different 'feel' as well, which we love. Expect beautifully weathered timber floors, local stone and leather details in Gangtey; the feeling of a traditional farmhouse in Punakha; a forest within a forest in remote Bumthang and the feeling of old stone ruins in Paro. Add to this open fires, fine food and wines, immersive experiences and fantastic spa treatments.

Guests will be able to take a journey through Bhutan stopping at the various lodges, and with domestic flights back from Bumthang, you can take short or long itineraries immersing yourselves in the fantastic history and culture which Bhutan has to offer.

When to go

In the western, central and eastern Bhutan you will mostly experience cold European-like weather. Winter lasts here from November to March. The Monsoon occurs between June and August when the temperature is normally between 8° and 21°C. October and November are arguably the best months, when the monsoon has passed and the skies are clear. The spring months of March, April and May are best for the flora, but it can be stormy as the monsoon builds up for July-September.
