The spirit of Uma Punakha
Situated at the western end of the lush Punakha valley, the private Uma Punakha faces the arched crook of the Mo Chu River. Nine hillside rooms and two free-standing villas bask in the stillness and tranquillity of the alpine landscape. Blending into its picturesque setting, each room commands sweeping views of the valley and the river as it winds its way through rice fields and orchards. The nine rooms, some of which boast private terraces, feature elegant wooden furniture and bright walls. Light and airy, the rooms are spacious enough to incorporate a comfortable lounge area and generous bathroom with a deep tub and separate shower.
Guests can choose to immerse themselves in the traditional flavours of Bhutan or indulge in delicious international cuisine at Bukhari restaurant, which serves a seasonal menu made of local ingredients. Tucked into a serene woodland glade nearby, the COMO Shambala Retreat offers a selection of Asian-inspired treatments that are sure to rejuvenate and heal weary bodies and minds, in a magnificent setting with far-reaching views of the valley.
