Bhutan Tourism – Luxury Travel

Bhutan Tourism – Luxury Travel

Some may be suprised to learn Bhutan punches well above it’s weight when it comes to luxury travel!

Amankora Luxury Lodges

We well remember seeing the foundations of Bhutan’s very first true luxury resort lodge, set in a blue pine forest in Paro valley, back in 2003. This was to become Amankora Paro.

Aman Resorts, one of the global leaders in intimate luxury, and always in stunning locations, were the original luxury travel pioneers in Bhutan.

Today Amankora has 5 luxury lodges in western and central Bhutan. An ‘Amankora Journey’ is as good as it gets and, believe us,  makes for one very, very special experience.

COMO Uma Resorts

The highly respected COMO Resorts came next, purchasing an original style Bhutanese hotel in Paro valley and reworking it to their own exacting standards under the COMO Uma brand.

They then added COMO Uma in the Punakha valley with almost unrivalled views from all rooms. Lovely stuff.

Renowned for their cuisine, you’ll not be disappointed!

Amankora Gangtey Potato Shed Dinner Experience

Gangtey Lodge

Set in the most beautiful and remote Phobjikha valley, in west/central Bhutan, the privately owned Gangtey Lodge is a true delight.

Warm, intimate and inviting, the lodge holds great appeal all year round.

Large suites with bathtubs overlooking the valley beg for a 3 night stay!

This lodge combines perfectly with the two COMO Uma lodges. Check out our Bhutan Luxury Travel Experience or shorter Bhutan Luxury Explorer private tours, available all year round.
