About Amankora, Paro
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, Paro displays a mix of rustic and contemporary design throughout the main lodge and six dwellings – each dwelling is home to four suites, two on the ground floor and two on the upper floor.
The 24 suites are similar in design featuring natural rammed-earth walls, gently sloping roofs and wood-panelled interiors with a king-size bed, a traditional bukhari (wood-burning stove) and a large terrazzo-clad bath.
