Living In Luxury In The Kingdom
Amankora Resort in Bhutan exemplifies the adage ‘less is more’. Located amidst the mammoth Himalayan mountains and the folds of their valleys, the resort has only five lodges – each with a distinct style and ethos, but all otherworldly in experience. By choosing any of the 72 suites that make for the 5 lodges, you are in the company of forests and birdsong.
Apart from the verdant and rejuvenating surroundings of the lodges, replenishment for the soul comes from the in-house spa treatments. Plant and herb based therapies are exclusive to the Amankora spa. Other Bhutanese styles of massages and treatments also makes this an energizing experience. Nourishment for the soul done, cuisine comes next on the specialty of Amankora. The hotel lays great emphasis on offering Bhutanese, Western and Indian dishes, rooted in fresh produce.
Guided excursions through Paro, Thimphu, Punakha, Phobjikha and Bumthang valleys offer the chance to experience the remote kingdom with experts. Biodiversity and local culture become the highlight of these tours, giving an insight into architecture, history and heritage as well.
