Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Amankora Bumthang is positioned at the foot of Bumthang’s Choeckor Valley. The quintessential town of Jakar consists of two charming streets, and is ideally situated to discover the gems of the surrounding hills, which are said to be the most beautiful in the kingdom.

Rooms at Amankora Bumthang

The hotel’s 16 luxury suites offer unbeatable views, with lounge areas overlooking the neighbouring Wangdicholing Palace and Monastery, belonging to the first and second King of Bhutan. The rooms are contemporarily decorated in warm tones, with crisp white linen and additional Bhutanese elements such as bukhari wood-burning stoves.

Food & Drink

Guests can enjoy lunch and al fresco dining in the hotel’s traditional courtyard, shaded by local fruit trees, whilst sampling distinctive specialities of the region. Bhutan’s fabled warm hospitality is reflected in the service, which is unwaveringly engaged and welcoming. After dinner, retreat to the Library or Living Room to relax by the bukhari stove and admire the view through floor-to-ceiling windows.


Indulge in a moment of pure relaxation in one of the spa’s treatment rooms; the Zen Massage is their speciality and a sure-fire way to invigorate the soul.
