Cross a suspension bridge over the Mo Chhu River to find luxury and serenity in Amankora, Punakha. One of Aman’s five locations in the wonderful Kingdom of Bhutan (with sister resorts in Paro, Thimphu, Gangtey and Bumthang), the lodge marries the luxury and convenience of well-appointed private residences with an unparalleled window into the unique culture and impossibly spectacular Himalayan surroundings. 

Designed by Kerry Hill, the Australian-born resort architect, the Amankora Punakha Lodge itself is a piece of art. The signature Amankora suites feature spacious and airy bedrooms and living rooms with king size beds, window seats and traditional wood burners, while every en suite bathroom has a large free-standing bathtub.

The restaurant is inside a beautiful traditional Bhutanese farmhouse, built some decades ago by a former Je Khenpo (chief abbot of Bhutan). Here, you can choose from an array of Bhutanese, Western and Indian dishes, which showcase local ingredients, whether yak meat, fresh honey or seasonal vegetables. Or perhaps indulge in an intimate dining experience within your room or another stunning setting.
