I have visited Paro twice, in 2007 and 2011, first time by myself and the second time with my husband. I have enjoyed the first visit so much that we decided to stay at Como Paro the second time in 2011. During both stays, we both had wonder experiences with the staff, arrangement, food, ambience and the environment of Como Paro. I almost felt like that was my home away from home in Bhutan.
Como Paro has an amazing and spacious yoga studio with a large ceiling to floor window opens up to the Himalaya mountain ranges. I particularly enjoy the early morning practice with the fresh air blowing from the Himalaya, taking it all in my lung with a refreshing start of the day.
We hired the driver and the car from Como Paro during both visits. When I travelled alone, the guide and the driver made sure I was comfortable the full journey, prepared soft pillow and warm blanket on the longer journey to make sure I could rest comfortably during the ride. When we travelled together (with my husband), the hotel also prepared healthy food basket so we were nicely fed and hydrated during our trips.
I would highly recommend to try Como Hotel's Himalayan hot stone massage. Soaking in the fresh water stream from Himalaya in a chilly evening, followed by the herbal tea and surround by the sound of the mountain - nothing could beat the experience.
When my husband went for a overnight camping with the guide, I decided to stay in the hotel on my own, and little do I know there were so many activities to keep me busy and occupied the full day. Early yoga practice, laps of nice swimming in the indoor heated pool, cardio in the gym, healthy ranges of meals, and little hikes arround the hotel property ... and we were in Bhutan!
Como Paro also prepares picnic for hiking if you wish to stay in Paro a bit longer.
Remember when you stay in Como Paro, go check out the world's largest printed book displayed at its library, "A Visual Odyssey Across the Last Himalayan Kingdom".
