Thimphu | Deluxe
Set on a forested hillside above Bhutan’s thriving modern capital, a stay at Amankora Thimphu allows you to combine sightseeing in the city with the tranquillity of a rural retreat. With just 16 suites spread throughout the lodge, this calm hotel is able to provide a truly bespoke and attentive service, leaving you rested and refreshed to explore the Motithang district and further afield.
Each of the 16 suites is a self-contained sleeping and living area. Rustic fabrics in neutral tones contrast against sleek, modern shapes for a décor that blends the contemporary with the traditional. Generously-sized beds in restful corners give way to cosy armchairs and window seats where you can while away a few private hours reading and enjoying the view. Freestanding bathtubs are clad in terrazzo, giving an organic look and keeping the water hot for those extra-long soaks. Wood-panelled walls and floors in honey and hazelnut tones reflect the soft amber lighting creating a homely atmosphere, while bukhari stoves warm the space. Large windows bring in the natural light and draw your gaze out to the garden.
The open-plan lounge and dining area has a clever design which feels airy while still creating pockets of cosy privacy. Clusters of sofas and armchairs invite you to settle down near the two open fires which separate the room, and floor-to-ceiling windows bring the green of the forest inside. Try a selection of international and Bhutanese dishes, prepared using local ingredients, in the high-ceilinged dining room or by candlelight on the outdoor terrace. Explore central Thimpu, visit the nearby Motithang Takin Preserve or simply take advantage of a few blissful treatments at the hotel spa and enjoy a little dedicated r&r.
We SayA restful hillside hideaway within easy reach of Bhutan’s bustling capital - the best of both.
