Located overlooking the 17th-century Monastery, the spectacular setting at the multi-award-winning Gangtey Lodge is a real draw. Inspired by traditional Bhutanese farmhouses, local artists and masons worked on the murals reflecting images and landscapes from the valley, subtly capturing the vibrancy of Bhutanese artwork and monastic design. In the comfort of the Main Lodge, enjoy delicious and healthy Bhutanese and pan Asian cuisine with ingredients grown on-site or sourced from surrounding valleys. In the late afternoon, sink into deep leather sofas next to the fireplace, set upon plush hand-woven carpeting for intimate evening time dining and drinks with friends and family.
Each of the 12 spacious farmhouse suites is a beautifully designed private oasis with underfloor heating, individual wood-burning stoves, a separate shower, and a dressing room with double vanity. Unwind by the Swiss fireplace and rejuvenate with a soak in deep roll top baths with sweeping views of the valley below.
Purposefully curated and authentic experiences have been designed to immerse you into this unspoilt and undiscovered valley fully. Partake in spiritual blessings and religious ceremonies at the Monastery and Monks University, located a short walk away, or visit community farmhouses where the ancient traditions of butter and cheese making continue to this day. For the more adventurous, Gangtey Lodge is the perfect stepping stone to physical and mental rejuvenation, whether forest bathing on the Gangtey Nature trail, or cyling past far flung hamlets and treking up local peaks for spectacular views of distant Himalayan Peaks.
What we love about Gangtey Lodge
