Why we like it

  • Amankora Punakha is accessed via a suspension bridge over the river Mo Chhu and situated in an orange orchard with views across the rice fields and back up the Punakha Valley
  • The farm house dining room serves western and Bhutanese cuisine at a long oak table which evokes a family-style dining experience
  • The spa at Amankora Punakha contains two treatment rooms, a steam room, changing areas and a yoga/meditation room 
  • Other facilities and activities include bars and lounges, a library, archery, fishing, trekking, golf and white water rafting, as well as excursions into Punakha valley (including a trip to visit Punakha Dzong, one of Bhutan's most impressive monastery fortresses)

Guest Testimonial

Dawa in Bhutan was a very decent, honourable, kind and funny man - excellent. Rekha in Delhi was the most gentle, knowledgable and couteous lady - excellent.

- IG, West Midlands

Amankora incorporates a series of lodges, all unique and sympathetically balanced with their environment. Together, the lodges create a circular pilgrimage through Bhutan's breathtakingly spectacular central and western valleys.

Amankora Punakha's lodge compound is accessed via a suspension bridge across the Mo Chhu and is built around a traditional Bhutanese farmhouse, where the dining room, lounge and library are located. The accommodation is set in three rammed-earth buildings, where eight suites feature wood panelled interiors, a traditional bukhari, king-size bed, terrazzo-clad bath, shower and vanities, and day bed. Suites are individually heated during the cooler winter months and air-conditioned in the summer months.

Best time to be there

Bhutan offers warm days and cool nights all year round. October and November are arguably the best months, when the monsoon has passed and the skies are clear for mountain photography. The spring months of March, April and May are best for the flora, but it can be stormy as the monsoon builds up for July-September.
