Lonely Planet review
On the 'less is more' theme comes this five-star resort on the forested fringes of town. Amankora looks like a mini dzong, its stone-paved passageways inspiring hushed tones in the reverential guests. Inside the open-plan rooms, plenty of wood and tan-coloured textiles mellow the monastery asceticism. The traditional bukhari wood heaters are a nice touch but were also the cause of a fire that burned down the dining hall in 2010. As with other Amankoras hotels, there is a luxurious spa, and airport transfers and meals are included in the tariff.
Our independent authors have visited Amankora and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Thimphu.
