The Land of the Thunder Dragon
Journey through the vertiginous scenery of the western and central valleys, and you can’t help but find meaningful and uplifting experiences at every turn. A landlocked Himalayan Kingdom, Bhutan is rich in culture, tradition and spirituality that have been carefully guarded and preserved. Six Senses Bhutan comprises five lodges set in intimate locations and uniquely designed with spacious suites and villas. Bhutan is accessible by plane via Bangkok, Delhi, Kathmandu, Kolkata and Singapore. A year-round destination with March to April and September to November offering pleasant weather for hiking. June to August offer lush landscapes with colourful flora while December to February brings sunny days and clear mountain views.
Each of Six Senses Bhutan intimate lodges has a unique character and all embrace the Six Senses guiding principles which include a Six Senses Spa and Wellness Center, mindful eating, sleep and self-discovery. Visit one, or any combination, and immerse yourself in Bhutan’s spirituality, heritage and hospitality. Those seeking a new destination for trekking and cultural immersion, with a strong spa presence, will find the lodge’s breadth extraordinary. Whether it is birdwatching from a bridge at the Gangtey lodge, gathering around an open fire at Paro or soaking up the forest views through expansive windows in your Bumthang suite, it is guaranteed you will return home with fond memories of your time in Bhutan with Six Senses.
Thimphu: Situated within apple orchards and pine forests, yet still within reach of the capital’s attractions, Six Senses Thimphu is perched on an auspicious hillside overlooking the shimmering lights of Thimphu. With its grand design and outdoor ponds reflecting the sky above, this is your very own Palace in the Sky, with banquet facilities for 60 guests, pool, prayer pavilion, business centre and sunken outdoor performance deck.
Punakha: The Flying Farmhouse amidst the rice fields, this beautiful lodge has a rustic feel and is blessed with a warmer climate. You’ll find a choice of suites and villas, pool, library, yoga and meditation huts, and from here you can visit one of the highlights: the majestic Punakha Dzong.
Paro: Designed to maximise what is surely one of the most scenic settings within the Six Senses Bhutan journey, this lodge is known as Stone Ruins – you’ll understand why when you dine among them.
Gangtey: Known as the Traditional Birdwatching Bridge, this lodge is indeed strategically positioned to showcase a 180-degree view of the little-visited Phobjikha Valley, home to the fascinating black necked cranes.
Coming Soon Bumthang: Carefully built as a Forest within a Forest, this is an auspicious base from which you can take in hallowed monuments, monasteries and winter festivals. If you’re looking for peace, come on in.
