Aman resorts are a very special place , offering experience beyond the luxury resort This is far more than an amazing property with first class accommodations and superb service this is a unique experience in each resort that transports you into the culture and country you are visiting...if you have not stayed with Aman before...it's time you did

I have been wanting to come to this hotel for so long and finally had my chance in Bhutan. I can't begin to explain how disappointed I am. Overpriced for nothing, I would expect an over and beyond experience but it was not worth how much we paid.

Situated above the rapidly grown town of Thimpu. Amankora is a place of great tranquility. the lodge manager Bhanu and his team do a fabulous job of looking after our needs and making our stay memorable. The rooms are very cozy, the food is excellent and the attention to detail is impressive.

Unfortunately, didn't get to stay here this time cos I was traveling with a photo group. Made it here for tea and shopping though. As usual, the manager was friendly and gave my friends a tour of the hotel after tea. The shop here was much bigger than the one at Paro, things are different, very high-end, very nice -...

Amankora Thimphu was the last of the 5 Aman lodges we stayed at in Bhutan. We stayed 3 nights in Paro, then flew to Bumthang where we stayed 2 nights each in Bumthang, Gangtey, Punakha. Finally, on advice of others we spent one night in Thimphu before departing from Paro Airport (Paro is only about an hour away from Thimphu.)...

All I can say is WOW. Aman has definitely set the bar high. And what sets them apart is their level of service. They get the little things right -- remember your name, remember that you like oil vs. butter with your bread, had a back problem and put hot water bottles in the bed every night. And I could...

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...

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...

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...

Combining aman, the Sanskrit-derived word for 'peace', and kora or 'circular pilgrimage' in Dzongkha, the Bhutanese language, Amankora, is a series of lodges in the Kingdom of Bhutan's central and western valleys.

To best experience all that Bhutan has to offer, Amankora can tailor journeys that include a combination of its lodges located in the valleys of Paro, Thimphu, Punakha, Gangtey and Bumthang. ... more   less
