I really liked the design of this hotel. Even in the cold weather the wooden rooms and chimney provide a sense of warmth and calm. This hotel provides you with some little things that make a big difference ... youll see those small gifts when you book i dont want to spoil. Rooms are big, food is good and service... More

Leaving the city behind, this location is tucked away at the top of a hill, surrounded by trees. Outdoor seating for lunch on a warm day is lovely. The library is the most beautiful of all the Amankoras. Floor to ceiling windows, lots of light. All the Amankoras are meant to fit seamlessly into the environment, having the look of... More

Stunning architecture which fits beautifully in its surroundings. Very attentive staff, and quick. Wonderful little details such as on-the-house afternoon wine, and a goodbye blessing ceremony. The rooms are beautiful - very woodsy, high ceilings, well ventilated and heated, welcoming bathtub and more. Very good food. I just wish i could have stayed longer, and thought they could have used... More

Stayed for 2 nights here as the first stop of our 9 days trip with Amankora Journeys. We were greeted warmly and welcomed by the country manager and lodge manager. They were all very eager to help make our trip a wonderful one. The suite is spacious and very comfortable. View from the Windows is the suites. Wifi was patchy... More

We have traveled through Bhutan visiting 4 of the 5 amankoras. Thimphu was clearly not the best one. Thimphu as a location is least attractive. The kitchen in Amankora Thimphu is very disappointing. Several servings were either tasteless of missed the finesse of the kitchen they tried to address. All the rooms in de Amankora's we have visited were similar.... More

This review is about the Aman in Thimphu in terms of accommodation only. We stayed there in Nov 2015 for one night and did not experience the tours. On the positive side, the rooms are very spacious and nicely designed. All wood finishes and a nice Zen feel. Service is very good and staff (and there are a lot of... More

A boutique hotel with 16 well appointed rooms and yes weary travelers, no TV! The rooms are beautiful in their simplicity and comfort. The rooms are in an open configuration which adds to the sense of size. The windows are linear and vertical to perfectly frame the trees growing on well manicured grounds. The service rivals the best at any... More

Amankora thimpu is a beautiful resort. People are so nice and kind. Resort is perfect. There is nothing bad about it. All is perfect. I love it here! What more can a traveler ask for. Its so so so nice. A must try resort for people who like nature and the beauty of a nation culture.

Our first visit to Bhutan and we choose Amankora to arrange everything for us. There are 4 of us traveling, age ranging from 7 to 82 years old. Our first stop is Thimphu and we are impressed. The staffs were friendly and extra helpful. The rooms were spacious and clean. The only thing is my wife is allergic to dust,... More

So, I've been wanting to get to Bhutan for around 20 years, and when I finally had the chance I chose Amulet Bhutan as my tour company and went from there. I'm a hotelier, and usually am 'taken care of' in terms of free hotel stays around the world, but not on this trip... so I went for broke and... More
