Bhutan / Amankora Journey

The ONE for a sense of place

as featured in our curated edit of luxury holidays for 2018

There are few places more spiritual than the Himalayas and few kingdoms more beguiling than the monastery-strewn mountains of Bhutan. Scattered amongst cliffs and valleys, five Aman lodges combine exploration of a tiny country that has changed little over the centuries with the highest levels of luxury – each offering unrivalled personal service, regional delicacies and world-class spas. A private driver and guide accompany your journey, first to Thimpu – the charming capital teeming with museums, markets and art. Enjoy many scenic drives travelling between Gangtey, Bumthang and Punakha, before finally descending from the Dochu La Mountain Pass for your stay amongst the pine forests of Paro. Here, be sure to visit the Paro Dzong – a jewel of Bhutanese architecture.
