This was our first experience staying with Aman, and it did not disappoint. While it comes with a premium price tag, we left feeling that it delivered more than the value we had anticipated. We enjoy our stays at Shangri-La, Mandarin Oriental, Ritz. These chains have some great properties, so we questioned whether Aman would deliver. With several staff for...

There are very few properties around the world which bring the local traditions to life for us all to experience. From all the wonderful Aman team dressing in their traditional attire to the local use of produce and infusing Bhutanese dishes at all meals. This of course is what Aman culture is all about - immersing in the local culture...

We spend 8 days with Amankora, traveling to the 4 lodges throughout Bhutan. The experience and service were outstanding. Our guide, Pema, and driver, Sangay, were perfect. They totally made us discover their country from the smallest detail to the grand nature that surrounded us. No detail or courtesy were spared from the pick nicks being set in beautiful spots,...

9 years on, Amankora Thimpu remains as calm as ever, perched on a forested hillside above the ever-growing bustle of Thimpu. Thimpu's growth appears largely unchecked, with traffic jams and large concrete buildings taking the place of many of the old buildings that make this capital city so picturesque. But the dramatic location of the city means that it would...

I have been wanting to come to this hotel for so long and finally had my chance in Bhutan. I can't begin to explain how disappointed I am. Overpriced for nothing, I would expect an over and beyond experience but it was not worth how much we paid.

Situated above the rapidly grown town of Thimpu. Amankora is a place of great tranquility. the lodge manager Bhanu and his team do a fabulous job of looking after our needs and making our stay memorable. The rooms are very cozy, the food is excellent and the attention to detail is impressive.

Combining aman, the Sanskrit-derived word for 'peace', and kora or 'circular pilgrimage' in Dzongkha, the Bhutanese language, Amankora, is a series of lodges in the Kingdom of Bhutan's central and western valleys.
