My wife and I just returned from our inspiring 8-day journey with Amankora through Thimphu, Gangtey, Punakkha and Paro. The natural beauty, Buddhist culture and warm, gracious Bhutanese people moved us, but the team at Amankora made us feel at home in each location. We were sad to leave!! First, as we entered our wood styled, Zen room in each... More

It was a long trip from home and all travel pains and weariness were immediately lessened on arrival at Paro airport. A swift transfer to Thimphu where the lodge is located close to Royal palaces and homes in quiet and secluded peace. Charming staff, excellent food and a spacious room with all modern conveniences. A most auspicious start to our... More

This trip truly converted us into Aman fans - we always had been reluctant to go because we felt children might disturb the monastic tranquility of most Aman resorts - and were greatly mistaken. We stayed 3 nights at Amankora Bhumthang and 2 nights at Amankora Thimphu and loved both. Amankora Bhumthang: The location close to the Palace, with flowering... More

A beautiful and luxurious property where you feel more as though you are staying on your private home not a hotel. Amazing will recommend to all!!! The hikes near by are for all levels and our guide was very knowledgeable. The food offered was to everyone's taste. I can't find a single complaint!!

I really wondered what Amankora would be like. I knew the creature comforts would be covered, but Amankora Thimpu does SO much more than that. A sublime forest setting, understated architecture that so suits the site, huge beautiful rooms. But.... The staff is what really will get you in the end. Where do they find such warm, kind, caring people... More

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
