The newest Amankora property in Bhutan, located in the little visited Bumthang Valley, in the centre of the country but as far East as most people go in the Kingdom of Bhutan. The Amankora Bumthang is a luxury resort set just outside of the vibrant town famous for its ancient monasteries and amazing trekking. There are some infrequent flights from Paro beginning which will open up this area quite a lot.
Adjacent to the first and second King of Bhutan’s palace, Wangdichholing, Amankora Bumthang lies within the town of Jakar in the Choekhor Valley in an area commonly known as Bumthang. The lodge is surrounded by an apple orchard and features pear trees along its boundary with the Palace. A dzong-inspired hallway at the lodge’s entrance opens onto a Library and a comfortable Living Room appointed with lounge chairs, daybeds and a traditional bukhari. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer views of a landscaped courtyard adjoining the shared Palace grounds. Adjacent is the regally-appointed Dining Room with its soaring ceiling. Outdoor dining areas under the shade of local fruit trees are also provided in the courtyard. The Spa, located just above the entranceway, offers three intimate treatment rooms, a steam room and changing area.
