With a name derived from the Sanskrit word for peace, you can rest assured that your stay at Amankora Bumthang will be full of serenity and comfort. Located within the district’s main town of Jakar, the elegant lodge holds a premier position adjacent to the first and second King of Bhutan’s palace, Wangdichholing.
The lodge has a classical Bhutanese design with a dzong-inspired entrance which opens out into a pleasing lounge featuring a traditional wood burning stove. The 16 suites have been separated out into four structures for maximum privacy and are accessed through an imposing stone hallway. Each room is appointed with wood-panelled interiors, wood burning stoves and a daybed overlooking the courtyard and the nearby palace and monastery, as well as all the usual high-end conveniences.
The attractive courtyard offers a delightful opportunity for dinning outside under the shade of fruit trees and spa facilities can be found near the main entrance hall. Not that you’ll want to spend all your time in your quarters – the lodge is perfectly situated for exploring Jakar and the surrounding Choekhor Valley with the former royal sports ground of Bhutan’s first two kings lying beside the entrance avenue.
