Punakha Lodge, Amankora - Luxury Resort in Bhutan - Aman
Discover Amankora's Punakha Lodge (https://www.aman.com/resorts/amankora/lodges/punakha), a luxury hotel & resort reached by crossing a suspension bridge over the Mo Chhu River covered in prayer flags. Punakha Lodge incorporates a traditional Bhutanese farmhouse built by a former Je Khenpo (chief abbot of Bhutan). Located in a subtropical valley that produces most of the nation’s vegetables, the area is where the Bhutanese royals spend their winters.
Eight of the suites are identical in design to those of Amankora Paro, with views across an orange orchard and rice terraces. The four Mo Chhu Suites are situated in a new building, and two feature separate 40m2 living areas. The suites can be combined to offer two 2-bedroom units. All accommodation offers king-size beds, traditional wood-burning stones and banquette window-seats, while bathrooms feature terrazzo-clad bathtubs, twin vanities and a separate shower and toilet.
Devoid of crowds and the trappings of tourism, Bhutan is unlike anywhere on Earth – and Amankora offers unprecedented access to its breath-taking beauty. With five lodges spread across the country, it leads guests to a deeper insight into urban, rural and spiritual Bhutan, while immersive wellness and dining experiences create a tangible connection to the pine-sprinkled Himalayan setting. Bhutan is still only slowly opening up to tourism, yet Amankora has been on the ground here for 15 years cultivating a caring, passionate team whose experience is unrivalled in the Buddhist Kingdom.
