Amankora: A circular journey through Bhutan

part of Amanresorts, Bhutan

Amankora has five nature-linked lodges nestled along a path of edifying momentum uncovering the richness of a pristine cultural and biogenetic evolution, deeply entrenched in the spectacular Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan.

Most journeys start at Amankora Paro or Amankora Thimphu. The lodge in Paro is nestled among glistening conifers in a 24-suite pine forest retreat.

Amankora Thimphu, raised up in a blue-pine forest of the Motithang area, sits close to the capital’s intriguing sights and traditional shops.

Amankora Punakha is set in sparkling verdancy east of the Dochu La Pass and just north of the resplendent Punakha Dzong.

Amankora Gangtey, set in the remote wilderness of the Phobjikha valley, proffers magical views across the bird-strewn gorge and to the empowering Gangtey Goemba, a 16th century monastery.

Amankora Bumthang rests adjacent to First and Second King’s palace, Wangdichholing, within the town of Jakar in the Choekhor valley, a valley sprinkled with an exotic mix of sloping pine forests, apple orchards, and restful fields of farm produce.

amankora Paro

Thirty minutes from Paro’s international airport, the lodge contrasts rustic with the contemporary, featuring natural rammed-earth walls, gentle sloping roofs and wood-panelled interiors. A lime-washed stone pavilion houses the living and dining rooms, library, boutique and outdoor terrace. Behind the main cluster of buildings is the Spa which has a sauna, steam room, five treatment rooms with hot stone baths, changing rooms and a glass-walled yoga suite.

amankora Thimphu

The lodge’s dzong-inspired architecture incorporates high stone, white-washed buildings accessed through an enclosed arrival court. The combined Living and Dining Room features soaring ceilings and an outdoor dining deck provides views of the nearby stream and surrounding forest. The Spa includes three treatment rooms, steam room and changing areas.

amankora Punakha

Accessed by crossing a suspension bridge over the Mo Chhu, the lodge is centred by a traditional Bhutanese farmhouse. This quaint, three-storey structure with its preserved vegetable dye wall paintings is now the combined common guest area with a dining room, traditional altar room, a courtyard for alfresco dining and a tea pavilion. Just beyond is the Spa with two treatment rooms, steam room, changing areas and a yoga/meditation room.

amankora Gangtey

Lodge accommodations and guest facilities are housed together. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the combined living and dining room offer beautiful views over the Phobjikha Valley. Spa facilities include two treatment rooms and changing areas.

amankora Bumthang

Overlooking established orchards and skimming the grounds of one of Bhutan's royal palaces, the lodge offers a library, comfortable living room, regal dining room and cosy Spa with three treatment rooms, a steam room and changing areas.
