Amankora Thimphu Lodge 

Sitting above the capital in a pine forest, this hotel is a tranquil, luxurious retreat

Providing guests with a sense of understated luxury and a quiet spot away from the ever-growing capital, the Amankora Thimphu is an elegant lodge set in the upper reaches of the Motithang suburb in the Thimphu Valley. Secluded within a dramatic blue pine forest, you'll enjoy utter tranquility and bliss at this boutique hotel, which is influenced by the architecture of the region's beautiful dzongs. The whitewashed buildings surround a charming landscaped courtyard, where a central fire pit provides the perfect spot to sit round in the evenings (weather dependent). Alternatively, there’s a cosy living room with log fires where regular cultural evenings take place.

In this simple sanctuary, there are only 16 guest suites available. Furnished with a generous bedroom and open-plan lounge, these spacious suites each have their own Bukhari wood-burning stove, and enjoy stunning views that sweep across the courtyard and pine forest surroundings.
