This atmospheric lodge lies on the edge of Bumthang town opposite an old palace – now a temple where guests can witness Bhutanese rituals and blessings. Monasteries and temples abound in the locality, which is also known for its locally brewed Red Panda beer. Sixteen suites, each simply and attractively decorated with wood panelling, reflect Aman attention to detail, featuring wood-panelled interiors, a bukhari and comfy daybed. A welcoming communal area with dining room and living area is complemented by a spa, a library and an outdoor area where traditional cultural performances are held. Meet up for pre-dinner drinks by the bonfire; join organised excursions to nearby landmarks such as Wangdichholing Palace.

Bhutan can be visited year-round, although the most pleasant weather occurs from March to May and from October to November. The winter months between December and February are particularly magical, characterised by refreshingly crisp days and blue skies with occasional snowfall, whilst the temperature drops further at night. The lush summer months are an ideal time to view the wildflowers.
