Amankora, Gangtey

5

An intimate hotel, hidden in the beautiful Phobjikha Valley

With one of the most beautiful natural settings and some fantastic valley and monastery views, the Amankora Gangtey is possibly the most popular Aman property in Bhutan. The lodge is located well off the beaten track, in the little-known Phobjikha Valley near the village of Gangtey. Providing a fascinating insight into life in rural Bhutan, within this remote paradise you can take a short circular walk from the lodge past local farms, join local monks in morning or evening prayer, or enjoy a guided hike to explore the natural wonders of the surrounding valley.

Celebrating Bhutan's rich cultural heritage, the Amankora Gangtey features traditional dzong-inspired architecture and chic wooden-panelled interiors. Irresistibly boutique, the eight suites are beautifully stylish, blending contemporary design with rustic features. Each suite combines a bedroom and lounge, and enjoys an uninterrupted view across the valley, while luxurious additions include a banquette window seat and a traditional Bukhari wood burning stove. Mealtimes at the lodge also celebrate Bhutanese culture, with menus inspired by local and traditional ingredients – keen to reinterpret classic continental dishes, don't be surprised to see dishes like yak carpaccio or a yak risotto on the evening's menu.
