Uma Paro, Paro, Bhutan

Our rating: Deluxe

This exclusive property is located on a forested hilltop above Paro. The 20 rooms and nine villas are dotted around a 38 acre estate affording each guest peace and privacy. The interiors have been created by local artisans and combine traditional carved wooden windows and doors with modern amenities such as DVD players, spacious bathrooms, mini bars and in-room yoga mats.

The Superior rooms are very comfortable and have views over the surrounding pine forest; Deluxe rooms offer a little more space and have views over the Paro Valley some also have small balconies, the Suites offer living rooms and a panoramic view of the Valley below, their Villas offer more privacy and come with a private butler to ensure you have everything that you need during you stay.

The COMO Shambhala Retreat is possibly the best spa in Bhutan, offering healing therapies, yoga tuition and if you have time for just one treatment try a traditional Bhutanese hot stone bath. The spacious dining area is warmed by a large Bhutanese Bukhari fireplace and a range of world cuisine is served here. The food is certainly a highlight and the impressive breakfasts certainly are something to look forward to. Uma Paro combines abundant Bhutanese character and style with luxurious facilities and excellent service, and in our view it is the place to stay in Paro.
