Amankora Thimphu is amongst the best hotels in Bhutan, located on a pine-forested hill on the outskirts of the capital of Thimphu, in the upper reaches of the Motithang preserve area with views over a burbling stream and sweet-smelling pines and away from the hustle and bustle of the Bhutanese main commercial centre. Designed by acclaimed Australian architect Kerry Hill, the lodge is considered as the most imposing of Aman’s five Bhutan resorts and hotels.
As one of the leading Bhutan luxury hotels, Amankora Thimphu offers sixteen suites which are cosy, comfortable and a pleasure to live in. The super-comfortable king-sized beds are flanked by reading lights master switches, a reading chair and a window banquette. This provides views across a landscaped courtyard, or of the stream and pine forest that you can only get at the high-end hotels in Thimphu with good locations. The spacious terrazzo-tiled bathrooms have soaking tubs and twin vanities. Its dzong-inspired architecture incorporates whitewashed stone buildings accessed through an enclosed arrival courtyard. Stairs lead from this entryway to a combined living and dining room with soaring ceilings and wood-paneled walls.
You could dine either in an elegant dining room or on the adjacent terrace, both of which serve Bhutanese, Indian, Asian and International cuisine. The resort’s spa features three treatment rooms, a steam room and changing areas. Traditional hot stone baths can be scheduled.
