Sculpted into the landscape of rice fields and orchards, perched on a stone terrace and overlooking the meandering Mo Chu River, Uma Punakha employs a sleek contemporary design to capture the essence of the breathtaking Punakha Valley.
Located in a less-traveled area of Bhutan, this eleven-room lodge is an exclusive and intimate retreat, ideally placed to explore nature and historic sights of the Himalayan Punakha region.
Proximity to Bhutan’s magical culture is but one dimension of Uma Punakha. Attraction on their own are the stylish interiors of the lodge, which coupled with the signature spa indulgence and refined service from COMO promise a truly mind-clearing experience.
Sublime interiors, serene spa
The designer Cheong Yew Kwan flooded the interiors with natural light and used neutral colour schemes as a backdrop to exquisite décor that include oversized beds, wood-burning stoves and traditional hand-painted Bhutanese murals.
Another kind of creature comforts can be found at the lodge’s Shambhala Spa Retreat, which offers hot stone baths and traditional Bhutanese spa treatments. Following spa therapy, the lodge proposes a menu of healthy juices, devised by nutritionists to give a healthy shot of energy.
For something more substantial, there is the Bukhari restaurant, which sources fresh ingredients from the plentiful valley below. Its seasonal menu of authentic Bhutan cuisine has a contemporary twist of a range of international dishes.
