Adjacent to what was once a royal palace, this peaceful retreat provides the renowned Aman service
Experience one of the country’s most spiritual regions with a stay at the 16-suite Amankora Bumthang Lodge. There are 29 temples and monasteries in the local area, while next to the property is the Wangdichholing Palace – the former summer home of the first and second kings of Bhutan, and now a resident monastery. Signature experiences at the lodge include lunch at a local farmhouse and a visit to the Red Panda brewery and Swiss cheese shop, a relatively unexpected experience in rural Bhutan! If you find you have some time to spare at the hotel, head to the serene on-site spa for a Bhutanese wellness experience. Focusing on Himalayan plant and herb-based therapies and treatments, popular experiences include the tension-relieving Bhutanese Oil Massage, and the signature holistic facial.
Similar to the other Amankora properties, the hotel's suites combine contemporary luxury with a rustic, Bhutanese charm. Inside, the suites are decorated with warm wooden panels and feature king-size beds, terrazzo-clad baths and traditional Bukhari stoves. A daybed also overlooks a serene view of the courtyard and nearby palace and monastery. Fresh Bhutanese produce and local ingredients inspire the cuisine at the hotel, with menus offering a range of delicious Western and Bhutanese fusion dishes. Depending on preference, you can dine within the inviting interior of the dining room, or outside on the courtyard terrace, a perfect setting for a spot of al fresco dining.
The furthest east of the five Aman properties in Bhutan; located in the Choekhor Valley close to a number of important palaces, monasteries and temples
