Located in a beautiful green valley between the Dochu La Pass and the majestic Punakha Dzong, the remote and spectacular Amankora Punakha is accessed by means of a suspension bridge over the Mo Chhu river. Built around a traditional Bhutanese farmhouse with a colourful history, the original wall paintings are still preserved in the quaint three-storey structure. The main guest area in the old farmhouse incorporates a dining room and traditional Altar Room, as well as a courtyard with a tea pavilion for al fresco dining. Eight suites located in three rammed-earth buildings are situated in a fragrant orange orchard with scenic views across the rice fields and up the Punakha Valley. Each suite features wood-panelled interiors, a traditional bukhari wood burning stove, king-sized bed, terrazzo-clad bath and daybed. The suites are individually heated and air-conditioned. After a day full of adventure, relax in the intimate spa with meditation and reiki treatments, as well as a range of massage therapies.
What we love about Amankora Punakha
- A wonderful array of olden, vegetable dye murals perfectly maintained throughout the structure
- A highlight of a stay at Amankora is an excursion to the nearby Punakha Valley and famous Punakha Dzong
- Guests can hike along the banks of the Mo Chhu river and through terraces of rice, chillies and cabbage to the Khamsum Yuelley Namgyel Chorten, a three-storey monument housing beautiful paintings by the Queen of Bhutan.
