Amankora Bumthang
  • Bumthang, meaning 'beautiful field' is well worth the slightly more intrepid journey. With a large number of temples and monasteries to explore you will need at least three nights here.

  • Feel at peace in the spa where treatments are at the ensense of trational Tiberan medicine . Enjoy the signature zen massage, its a must.

  • Just across from the property is the Wandichholing Palace which is well worth a visit as has vast amounts of history including being the location of the home of the first Bhutanese king.

  • In the dining room warm up next to the fire with fresh soups and stews and and gaze out of the large windows to the coutyard, which on warmer days you can enjoy your meals.

The Choekhor Valley where Amankora Bumthang is located is the site of some of Bhutan’s most auspicious monasteries and temples and easy day walks can take you to these beautiful sites. Many of these ancient buildings such as the 7th century Jampa Lhakhang are decorated with vibrant wall paintings and richly adorned altars that all have fascinating stories behind them. The surrounding area is also famed for its cottage industries including Bumthang butter, Emmenthal cheese, honey and the locally brewed Red Panda beer.

Amankora Bumthang is located adjacent to the Wangdichholing Palace, built in 1857 as the Kingdom’s first palace that served as the royal residence until this was moved to Thimphu in the 1950s. This is now the residence of a small monk body and you will often catch glimpses of them walking across the gardens from your bedroom.

The 16 suites are located in one building and are identical in design to those of the Aman properties in Punakha and Paro. There is also a library, well-appointed living room and impressive dining room. Located in the courtyard between the lodge and Wangdichholing Palace is an informal bonfire area for pre-dinner drinks. The spa offers three treatment rooms and a steam room.
