COMO Uma Punakha

Punakha | Deluxe

Looking down the valley to the Mo Chhu river, the COMO Uma Punakha combines its picture-perfect view with high-quality boutique accommodation and a dual focus on relaxing and exploring the surrounding countryside. Having only 11 rooms means there is always a sense of space, a tranquil ambiance and a truly bespoke service.

The Valley View rooms are bright and modern, with skillfully designed glass and wood window-walls that show off the gorgeous green hillsides and let the natural light flood in. A crisp white decor with simple furnishings creates a contemporary, minimalist feel, while traditional motifs (hand-painted directly onto the walls by local artists) add colour and character. The villas offer additional space and privacy, with separate dressing rooms, lounge areas and bukhari stoves as well as sheltered terraces where you can keep cosy around a terracotta chiminea as you admire the view.

Fine dining meets tradition in the restaurant where the chef prepares a range of Bhutanese dishes using locally-sourced produce. Organic ingredients, such as red rice, fresh butter, hand-moulded cheese and wildflower honey are used to create local cuisine with a twist as well as a range of international standards. Private dining experiences can be arranged in any area of the hotel grounds, with picnics by the riverbank being a speciality.

While providing plenty of relaxation opportunities onsite, the resort encourages you to explore the surrounding landscape with a gentle walk along the river or more active options such as mountain biking and white water rafting. When you return, you can relax with a traditional oil massage or body scrub treatment at the spa, soothe away the aches in a hot stone bath and snuggle up on the terrace to do a little stargazing.

We Say
Not many resorts in Bhutan have a view as spectacular as this, and the clever layout displays it to maximum effect.
