Punakha – Where to stay

Punakha was the capital of Bhutan until the mid 1950’s, when the capital changed to Thimpu, as it remains to this day.

Amankora Punakha

Only a short drive away from the 17thCentury Punakha Dzong, the Amankora Punakha resort is set just outside the town of Punakha. Converted from an old farm house once owned by the Bhutanese Royal family, the Amankora Punakha makes use of the traditional architecture of the area. The resort has a great spa which is perfect after visiting the Dzong or making use of the other activities the resort offers like mountain biking. This particular Amankora is our favourite one in Bhutan.  

Uma Punakha

This new intimate luxury lodge is a welcome addition to Punakaha, situated on a bend overlooking the Mo River and every room or suite has commanding views of the valley. Blending perfectly with its surroundings with a modern contemporary design blended with simple neutral colours.
