COMO Uma Punakha is very much part of the landscape, nestled in the hillside by the river. Choose from villas or rooms, all of which have wonderful views of the valley, rice fields, and orchards. Many of the rooms have outdoor terraces where guests can enjoy their breakfast or perhaps a glass of wine. Rooms are light and airy, and they all feature artwork by local Bhutanese painters and hand-woven rugs from neighbouring Nepal. These are set against the simple white walls, which are reminiscent of Bhutan’s iconic whitewashed monasteries.
The Bukhari Restaurant is named after the traditional Bhutanese fireplace, which are dotted around the restaurant and give a warm and welcoming feel to the space.
Traditional dishes are infused with international flavours, and fresh, local ingredients are a priority. If you prefer to opt for a private dining experience, the restaurant staff will create a gourmet feast at a location of your choice: we particularly love the romantic dining spots along the banks of the Mo Chu River.
