Aman Resort, Thimphu

Thimphu, Bhutan’s capital city, is a two-hour drive from Amankora Paro or one and a half hours directly from Paro’s international airport. At an altitude of 2,350m, Thimphu lies in a steep valley surrounded by richly forested mountains dotted with ancient monasteries and lhakhangs (temples). The town is built up from the Thimphu Chhu and is centred around the quaint Clock Tower and its surrounding lanes of shops, vegetable and meat markets, and assorted local restaurants. Up the valley lies the impressive Trashichhoe Dzong and the Kingdom’s only official golf course, a rolling nine holes set against the back drop of chortens (Buddhist receptacles for offerings), colourfully painted government agencies and the surrounding mountains.

 

 Sited in a pine forest in the upper reaches of the Motithang area of the Thimphu Valley, Amankora Thimphu is a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of the Kingdom’s booming capital. Dzong-like architecture incorporates high stone, white-washed buildings accessed through an enclosed arrival court. Stairs lead from this entry point to a dramatic combined Living and Dining room with soaring ceilings and wood paneled walls. Adjacent is a flagstone outdoor dining deck with views over the nearby stream and blue pine forest. Stairs lead down to the Spa that is appointed with three treatment rooms, steam and sauna rooms and changing areas.

 

Two accommodation blocks house a total of 16 suites, featuring a combined living and bedroom that includes a king-size bed, a reading chair and a window banquette providing views across a landscaped courtyard or directly onto the nearby stream and pine forest. Room interiors feature combined wood panel and chocolate brown walls. The traditional bukhari is positioned between the bedroom and the bathroom. The spacious bathroom opens from the bedroom and provides a terrazzo-clad bath that enjoys a view through a vertical slot window. A shower, toilet and twin vanities and hanging space complete the bathroom. The suites are individually heated during the cold winter months.
