Bumthang is known as the spiritual hub of Bhutan and steeped in folklore and stories, providing a unique and authentic visitor experience. The 16 select guest suites balance Bhutanese flair and contemporary luxury and are reached through an impressive stone-clad hallway. The rooms are distributed between four separate structures, each housing two suites on the ground floor and two on the upper floor. The spacious suites feature king-sized beds, a traditional bukhari (wood-burning stove), tasteful wooden panelling and a daybed. The room’s en-suite bathroom contains a terrazzo-clad bath, shower and twin basins.
The perfect destination for multi-generational holidays, Amankora cater for all ages, providing a stimulating natural and cultural environment in which families can bond and make unforgettable memories. Bhutan is the only nation in the world to measure its wealth with Gross National Happiness (GNH), and families can explore this wonderful concept.
The hotel’s grand dining room has high ceilings and serves a range of local and international cuisine. Offering something delicious to fulfil every palate, diners may sit inside the inviting restaurant or outside on the terrace, under the twinkling stars for a memorable dinner experience. Why not try one of Bumthang’s varieties of local products including butter, cheese, honey, spirits and brandies. Guests can also enjoy watching villages and local monks performing traditional dances around a campfire.
The resort looks out towards the crumbling Wandichholing Palace, the birthplace of Bhutan’s monarchy in Jakar in the Choekhor valley, and sweeping views of buckwheat, millet, potato fields, and an apple orchard. Amankora Bumthang offers a tranquil spa with three treatment rooms, a steam room, and a menu boasting holistic treatments and specialised oil massages. The library and study area offer Wi-Fi and provide a cosy place to relax and read books presenting Bhutan’s history and culture.
