Situated in a pine forest in the upper reaches of the Thimphu Valley, Amankora Thimphu is a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of the Kingdom's capital. Two accommodation blocks house a total of 16 suites, featuring a combined living and bedroom that includes a king-size bed, a reading chair and a window banquette providing views across a landscaped courtyard or directly onto the nearby stream and pine forest.
Room interiors feature combined wood panel and chocolate brown walls. Facilities include spa, restaurant, and Internet access. (For all resorts). Five stylish lodges (including the new Bumthang Lodge) in carefully chosen locations a few hours' drive apart, known collectively as "Amankora" (the Bhutanese word kora means "circular pilgrimage"). All display a refined synthesis of tradition and modernity, with expanses of natural wood and stone creating the serene and elegant design aesthetic that is the hallmark of Aman resorts properties throughout Asia. Modern baths are comfortable and well-equipped.
Menus feature Bhutanese, Indian and Continental cuisine prepared with homegrown produce. Access to television and the Internet is limited, and at the lodge in Gangtey there are no telephones. At all five lodges, the principal amenity is a small health spa.
