We did a 10-night itinerary with Amankora and were so happy we stayed in Bumthang. We spent 3 nights in Amankora Bumthang. Beautiful grounds and rooms, excellent service, so quiet and peaceful. Guide and driver were super nice and professional. Everything is top notch. Do not miss the farmhouse lunch! **Important tip: Inquire about the 25-minute domestic flight from Paro... More

The AmanKora Bhutan experience is wonderful. I have stayed at all 5 lodges across Bhutan and they are all wonderful. My prefered is Gangtey and Bumthang. Food is wonderful and the staff so friendly and kind. If you are looking for the luxury way to see Bhutan then Amankora is the only way.

Amankora staff make a huge effort to ensure that your tour and stay suit your individual needs. They listen to your interests and needs and try to say "yes" to whatever enquiry or request you have. They have bikes for you to use. They accommodate children's interests. It was my first Aman stay but if you can afford it, they... More

The only issue is the price. Everything else is just perfect. The entire city was was over rated by the tour agency and the tour books. If I can suggest, forget the city and the festival and save yourself a lot of money. But if you go. Indeed..stay here.

If the Amankora Gangtey is outstanding, this one is merely good. Actually, very good. Compared to other hotels, it is great. Compared to what Amankora can deliver it is merely good. For starters, it lacks the unique aspect of its sister hotel at Gangtey and it is larger, at 16 rooms. Secondly, it lacks the Amankora Gangtey's isolation and its... More

We arrived as Aman-virgins; we leave as Aman-junkies and it’s because of a lot of things – some that are outside local hotel management control (brand platform, location, space allocation, design, interiors, colours, fabrics) but many that are the direct result of the local hotel management and its team. The team is attentive, thoughtful, skilled, knowledgeable – and fun! The... More

We had a few reservations about staying at the Amankora resorts in Bhutan; not because we doubted the fabulous quality based on visits to other resorts,but because we were concerned how this luxury would sit alongside the gentle Himalayan Buddhism of Bhutan The answer is it works wonderfully and nowhere better than the Aman at Bumthang. Definitely our favorite of... More

We loved Bumthang -- the hotel is actually adjacent to a former palace and in an orchard. The food and service are excellent and typical Aman. The drive is substantial, there was much roadwork along the way, but there are some stunning passes and valleys. The town provides a very different feel of life in Bhutan than the more urban...

I did not stay overnight at this hotel, but visited in March 2014 for a massage, drinks and dinner. They told us they had 2 female and 1 male therapist. I had the Male therapist (forgot his name!!) for a 90 minute massage and it was AMAZING. It is close to being one of the best and most relaxing massages... More
