Gangtey Lodge

Phobjikha | Honeymoon featured

Resting on an untamed hillside in Phobjikha Valley, within strolling distance of Gangtey Goemba, Gangtey Lodge blends traditional Bhutanese farm house accommodation with contemporary interior features for a superlative finish that complements the gorgeous location. Guests can enjoy the serenity of the resort’s inner sanctuary, and also feel a strong link to the area’s unique culture and traditions, thanks to a good balance between creating seclusion and staying connected to the local community.

The resort’s founders have left no stone unturned in realising their design vision for the ideal mountainside retreat. High quality local stone and strong, dark woods have been used in the traditionally-built farm house-style structure, while carefully chosen fixtures and fittings have been sourced from across the globe to bring unique character to the decor. Bhutan’s famously tree-covered hills are framed by floor-to-ceiling windows in the lounge and dining area, which contributes to a light and airy ambiance, while high ceilings and free-flow interiors create real space.

In the suites, neutral tones and a natural finish anchor the interiors to the landscape. Wood-burning stoves create a cosy, homely feel and there are welcoming sofas where you can curl up and enjoy your morning cuppa. Spa treatments and massage are brought to you in your suite, allowing you to set your own pace for a little pampering, and the free-standing bathtubs are perfect for having a long soak as you take in the view across the valley to the monastery below.

Traditional dishes are served alongside contemporary cuisine in the communal dining area, while traditional wood-fired barbeques and hillside picnics give you alternative dining options. The region is on the winter migratory route of the rare Black-necked Crane; learn about local crane conservation projects and hike into the hills to observe them as they take flight. Gangtey Lodge is all about the balance between rustic and indulgent, blending high-energy activity with genuine downtime, and is an ideal base for exploring the deeper side of rural Bhutan.
