Bumthang hotels

Amankora Bumthang (Jakar) is the most easterly and newest Aman properties in Bhutan. Amankora has been named by combining aman, the Sanskrit-derived word for ‘peace’, and kora or ‘circular pilgrimage’ in Dzongkha, the Bhutanese language. Amankora Bumthang has been built using natural materials and there is an impressive dzong-inspired hallway at the entrance that opens onto a Library and a comfortable Living Room appointed with lounge chairs, daybeds and a traditional bukhari. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer views of a landscaped courtyard adjoining the shared Palace grounds. Adjacent is the Dining Room with its soaring ceiling. Outdoor dining areas under the shade of local fruit trees are also provided in the courtyard. The Spa offers three treatment rooms and a steam room.

The Swiss Guest House is located above Jakar with good views over the valley. This property was originally a farmhouse once the residence of the famous "Karsumphe Angye", the older sister of the first King of Bhutan. There are now two traditional Bhutanese buildings set amidst an apple orchard. The Swiss Guesthouse was set up by a Swiss- Bhutanese cheese maker and is well known for its Swiss dishes such as Fondue and Raclette. The restaurant and has a bar serving Red Panda beer (a traditional wheat beer brewed in Bumthang).
