Amankora in Bumthang, Bhutan
The Kingdom of Bhutan is a place of soaring 7,000-metre Himalayan peaks, glacial river valleys and evergreen forests. Amankora comprises five lodges dotted across this ancient land. Amankora’s five Lodges offer travelers the opportunity to experience Bhutan’s remarkable landscape and rich cultural heritage, all beneath soaring Himalayan peaks.
Our dining facilities are open to guests and non-residents. An array of Bhutanese, Western and Indian dishes are served across all five Amankora Lodges, using local ingredients such as yak meat and fresh honey from the Bumthang Valley. Private dining can be arranged both inside and outside the Lodges, whether for an intimate dinner or group celebration. Focusing on Himalayan plant- and herb-based therapies, treatments at Amankora’s five Spas, spread across the five Lodges, offer a wholly Bhutanese experience. Interiors are scented with cedar wood – used as a Buddhist incense as well as a traditional remedy – while massages, scrubs and baths soothe the senses.

Reviews for Amankora
The highlight of a trip to Bhutan is your trek up to the Tigerâ€™s Nest and this is the perfect place to stay the preceding nights. The rooms are very spacious (though rather dark) with a wonderful bath area. The food is good without being amazing, the staff all absolutely charming. Meals are on large communal tables which can mean you meet some very interesting (and not so interesting folk). As with so much of Bhutan this is an oasis of calm. A word for the Spa which is fantastic where Yeshi gives the best massages ever.

We were totally disappointed by the Amankora Paro after staying two nights in Amankora Thimpu. The food selection was uninspired with nothing I really wanted to eat and the quality of the food was way below what one would expect of an Aman resort, at the this lrice point the food should be good - and it was at Thimpu, but not at Paro. The hotel itself was ok but the service was way below that of Thimpu and unacceptably slow for a resort at this price point. We were sitting out by the fire in the afternoon and had to wait a long time before anyone came out to serve us so we had to go inside to ask each time. For me that is not 5 star service, this was 4 stars at best. If you come.to Bhutan, I suggest you avoid Paro altogether and do the Tiger's Nest from Thimpu (bit you would need to get up really early in the AM). But Aman needs to do much better at Paro for this to live up to their name. In short, we were totally disappointed in Paro and would not recommend it to anyone.

We stayed at Amankora in Paro at the end of our Bhutan tour. The accommodation is simply stunning set in traditional rammed earth two storey houses. The food was first rate, a welcome relief after the rather basic fare we had experienced elsewhere. We climbed to the Tigerâ€™s Nest (doesnâ€™t everyone) followed by one of the best massages we have ever experienced anywhere. Lovely touches - hot water bottles in your bed when you come back after supper, home made brownies as we departed as a take away gift and a blessing from a local monk. Quite unexpected and very sweet. All the staff were polite, courteous and attentive apart from one manager who was supercilious and arrogant. Not quite sure what that was about. We learned from another couple that laundry is included. We werenâ€™t aware of that.

After completing our Tiger Nestâ€™s hike at 12.30 pm, we decided to celebrate with a lunch at Amankora. The entrance is rather unique and we were rather surprised when our driver stopped by the roadside and announced that we have arrived. We walked through the soft pine leaves ground to reach the dining room. We dined al fresco with the view of pine trees, mountains, white clouds and blue sky before us. Nearby is a small stream which provided the soothing sound of running water. We had a three course meal at USD48 each including taxes. We tried three starters among us-couscous, asparagus and tuna and all of us ate the seared salmon with salad. There are six choices for dessert. I replaced my dessert with coffee. The food was very delicious and suited my taste bud. We could personally compliment the chef Jigme Wangyel when he came to our table. He even shared his couscous receipe with us. The service here was impeccable and the staff were very attentive to our needs. Lunch was a leisurely one and a half hour affair which also allowed us to rest our legs. They kindly provided a tour of the hotel after lunch. The living room has a panoramic view of the mountains and the old fortress. It was an outstanding dining experience and interacting with the friendly staff added to the feel good vibe.

Fantastic location and amazing architecture and design make this a stunning hotel. The rammed earth walls combined with muted minimalist architectural detailing inside the rooms makes this a classic Aman style property. The coffee shop has amazing views looking into the mountains.
