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...

All of the Aman hotels in Bhutan are outstanding. Their location is spectacular and rooms very comfortable. The service is way beyond anything I have experienced anywhere else in the world. Service is invisible but present even before you realize you need something! The Aman hotels are flexible ( we had to adjust our route last minute because of bad... More

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

Amankora Bumthang follows the template of the other locations - slightly minimalist but comfortable rooms with trademark professional service. We got there after a 5 hour drive from Gangtaey. It was oddly quite a pleasant experience. The road from Gangtaey was much better than between Paro and Punakha and it passed through some great places. Trongsa valley is very beautiful... More

This was our second stay in an Amankora property & although rather pricey we did feel well looked after & special. The rooms are large & sumptuous & the food good & the staff lovely. We definetely recommend this property if you want somewhere special.

The hotel is perfectly located, not too far away from the surprising downtown, right in front of an old monastery. The peach tree in the entrance of the hotel actually gives the tone. The architecture is in the Aman style, quite simple but elegant. The room is well organized, large and perfectly equipped. The "bhukari" is quite agreeable and always... More
