Amankora Thimpu

Amankora Thimpu, Thimpu, Bhutan

Our rating: Deluxe

Sited in a pine forest, Amankora Thimpu is a quiet retreat in the upper reaches of the Motithang area of the Thimpu Valley. Dzong-like architecture incorporates high stone, white-washed buildings accessed through an enclosed arrival courtyard. The atmosphere at Amankora Thimpu is calm and relaxed and the property itself is spacious and bright.

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. The spacious bathroom opens from the bedroom and provides a terrazzo-clad bath that enjoys a view through a vertical slot window.

Meals are taken in the wood panelled living-dining area, or, weather permitting, on the adjacent flagstone outdoor dining deck with views over the stream and forest. Stairs lead down to the spa that is appointed with three treatment rooms, steam and sauna rooms and changing areas. No luxury is spared and even a short stay will leave you feeling invigorated and refreshed.
