Thimphu was the first stop of our stay in Bhutan with Amankora. My friend came on a different flight from us but we were scheduled to arrive at Paro at around the same time. Unfortunately, our flight from BKK was delayed and we didn't arrive till 5 hours later. Luckily our guide Tara had the good sense to send our... More

Started our Bhutan holiday here and everything is up to the usual high standards of Aman. Our guide is very knowledgeable and there is enough to do here for two days, but not more unless you are into serious hiking. One tip is that not all the windows have curtains or blinds, so make sure to take an eye mask.... More

It was a good introduction to Bhutan and good to get adjusted to the altitude. At Thimphu, everything is more hotel like and not as relaxed like the other Amankora. However, this is expected being in the capital city. It's also a starting point for most exclusion which make it feel like a place for orientation. The kitchen there is... More

With several locations in Bhutan alone you probably can't wrong with any of them, but personally speaking this one in Thimphu was pretty slick and felt like you were in a Bond movie. If you're staying in Bhutan that means you most likely have some cash so don't skimp on your lodging and would even recommend staying with Amankora all... More

Beautiful architecture with austere white-washed exterior walls and really cosy interiors. The tall, narrow and deeply set windows generate beautiful and constantly shifting interior light. Beautifully decorated rooms with really comfortable beds and your own private fireplace. The service is top-notch. All staff members are very friendly and try to fulfill your every wish. Amankora Thimphu is situated approximately 7... More

This Resort is one of the most expensive in Thimphu and it is worth paying given the service and the luxury this hotel has to offer. However it is far above the Thimphu city and if one has to walk around and see the town this is not the good idea because it is far from the main city. The... More

My husband and I spent a total of 5 nights in Bhutan (1N in Thimpu, 2N in Punakha, 2N in Paro and another 1N on the Bumdra Trek) at the Amankora resorts. Bhutan in itself is a magical place - one which Amankora has successfully integrated itself, embracing the whole 'Bhutan feel' almost too seamlessly. The exteriors of every resort... More

Joined the Amankora Journey.......am glad I picked the right choice! Amankora Journey covering Amankora 5 properties and my fav is Amankora Bumthang Either the standard or luxury package however Bhutan is not Bangkok, Paris or Tokyo where you visit yearly. Although quite a big different but worth it as incl unlimited meals (a-la-carte), soft and alcohol drinks, laundry, private guide,... More

The best hotel in Timphu, by far, and the only reason I didn't rate this hotel higher was because Bhutan offers stunning vistas and countryside and Timphu is not really the most worthwhile destination - nice but not amazing town/capital city. Fantastic food, service and rooms - would have just rather spent in more time in rural locations like Paro... More

Aman Resort really knows too well how to pamper their guests effortlessly. Everything was just smoothly run accordingly, they anticipated what you need even before you open your mouth! This is what I called excellent service...... Our stay at three properties of Aman Resort in Bhutan confirmed what we have experienced before at their other properties in other countries. This...
