Amankora Bumthang is a simple, yet elegant sanctuary of calm. It comprises 16 self-contained suites, each with a king-size bed, romantic wood-burning stove, and tiled bathtub, with views overlooking a candlelit courtyard. Views from the garden overlook the Wangdichholing Palace.
Bhutan requires that all new buildings are built in a traditional style, so that the heritage architecture is preserved. At Amankora Bumthang, the designers have nevertheless managed to mix in certain contemporary elements, and the fusion they have created is exquisite.
At the resort’s wellness centre, a traditional Bhutanese oil massage will re-energise you and awaken your senses. Then spend the evening at the resort’s top-quality restaurant where local ingredients such as yak meat and fresh honey from the Bumthang Valley are incorporated into western, Indian and Bhutanese dishes. There are opportunities to dine in the grounds of Amankora Bumthang, as well as in the lodge itself, and the chef will prepare delicious picnics and other snacks to take with you on drives and excursions.
