Six Senses Gangtey

Deep in the Phobjikha valley, cloaked in lush forests of bamboo, lies the remote village of Gangtey and the serene, minimalist Six Senses. With breathtaking views of the valley, the small lodge offers a tranquil retreat in breathtaking surrounds.

Six Senses Gangtey
  • Winter home of the endangered black-necked crane and boasts prolific birdlife

  • Set into the hillside, looking over the endless valley floor and an ever-changing landscape

  • Boasts one of the world-renowned Six Senses Spas

  • Minimalist decor and natural materials create a cosy yet elegant retreat


Strategically set onto the western slopes of the valley and enjoying 180-degree views of the rolling hills, Six Senses Gangtey is a pocket of luxurious simplicity in a remote, isolated region of extraordinary natural beauty. Gangtey and its surrounds lie at 9,843 feet on the western slopes of the Black Mountains, a conservation area and winter home of the endangered black-necked crane. Glacial rivers teem with trout, forests of dwarf bamboo offer thrilling bike trails and the prolific birdlife creates a paradise for ornithologists.

Sympathetically designed to honour its surroundings, the granite and wood structure of the property houses just nine suites and one villa, each boasting indoor and outdoor spaces to maximise guests’ enjoyment of the valley views. Wooden interiors, sleek, minimalist lines and crisp white linens create a tranquil, restorative escape, while floor to ceiling windows draw the eye to the stupendous views over the rolling hills. An ever-changing picture, the sunlight dapples the valley, mists and clouds roll through and the tapestry of greens shifts with every hour, season and weather.

While the attraction of Six Senses Gangtey lies outside the stone walls of the property, it also boasts a number of amenities. A film and games room, cosy lounge, all-day dining restaurant and the renowned Six Senses Spa and Wellness Centre cater to the small number of guests.

If you can be dragged away from the spa, the surrounding hills of the Phobjikha Valley offer superb walks, ancient monasteries and a chance to explore the quaint village of Gangtey. Stretching out as far as the eye can see, the valley offers a wealth of hiking trails, nature walks and biking tracks while the 16th-century monastery of Gangtey Goemba watches over the village. Stroll across its ancient ramparts and through the village to appreciate the simplicity of life in this isolated corner of Bhutan, and admire the staggering beauty of the landscape as you walk across the endless valley floor. During the winter, black-necked cranes can be seen at the nearby Crane Centre, from a viewing hide, or even from the lodge itself.
