Venue Setting

Combining aman, the Sanskrit-derived word for ‘peace’, and kora or ‘circular pilgrimage’ in Dzongkha, the Bhutanese language, Amankora, a luxury hotel in Bhutan, is a unique circuit of lodges set throughout the Kingdom of Bhutan’s central and western valleys. Descending from 7,000-metre peaks in the north to the low-lying plains of the south, Bhutan’s rivers have forged deep valleys separated by high mountain passes. Historically isolated, each valley’s scenic beauty and topography affords visitors an opportunity for unique journeys of discovery between them.

Accommodations
Combining the Sanskrit-derived word for ‘peace’ with kora, or ‘circular pilgrimage’ in Dzongkha, the Bhutanese language, Amankora is a series of five lodges dispersed across the central and western valleys of Bhutan.
The sole-surviving Himalayan Buddhist Kingdom, Bhutan is located between the Tibetan Plateau and India, making it one of the most remote and pristine environments on Earth. Descending from 7,000-metre-high peaks in the north to the low-lying plains of the south, Bhutan’s rivers have forged deep valleys separated by high mountain passes. To best experience all that Bhutan has to offer, Amankora tailors personalised journeys that include a combination of its lodges located in the valleys of Paro, Thimphu, Punakha, Gangtey and Bumthang.
The 24-suite Amankora Paro is sheltered within a blue-pine forest of glistening conifers, a 20-minute drive from Bhutan’s international airport and Paro town. The lodge lies beneath the ruins of the 17th-century Drukyel Dzong (fortress-monastery). Amankora Thimphu is a 16-suite lodge situated in the forested Thimphu Valley, home to Bhutan’s capital city. It is ideally placed for exploring Thimphu’s museums, traditional shops and numerous cultural sites. Amankora Punakha lies east of the Dochu La Pass and just north of the resplendent Punakha Dzong. The eight-suite lodge is surrounded by rice paddies and fruit plantations. The eight-suite Amankora Gangtey is located in the spacious, seldom-visited valley of Phobjikha, near the quaint village of Gangtey, with panoramic views of the magnificent Gangtey Goemba, a 16th-century monastery. Adjacent to the King of Bhutan’s Palace, the 16-suite Amankora Bumthang is set in a region of sloping pine forests and fertile farmland known for its cottage industries.

Each of the five lodges offers elegant dining and lounge areas with beautiful views, an intimate spa and expansive outdoor areas for relaxing in the sun or beneath the stars.
