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. The sole surviving Himalayan Buddhist Kingdom, Bhutan is one of the most remote and pristine environments on earth. To best experience all that Bhutan has to offer, Amankora can tailor journeys that include a combination of its lodges located in the valleys of Paro, Thimphu, Punakha, Gangtey and Bumthang.

Aman is a well respected chain of resort hotels. Amankora has 5 excellent lodges in Bhutan. We were fortunate to have an excellent guide Tenzhin Wangchuk who looked after us right through our 11 days. The lodges have excellent facilities with great food and attentive staff. Given Bhutan’s requirements for a guide and the demanding infrastructure, we were lucky to travel with Amankora.

Hotel's Favourite
The design of the hotel is Japanese/Far East, rather than local Bhutanese, but is very elegant. The staff is extremely welcoming and efficient - nothing is too much trouble. The food is excellent, although generally international rather than Bhutanese but with a very good local or Indian set menu each evening. Our room was generally comfortable, but I have to say that the lighting was poor and much too dark with no option to increase it, whuch was a pity.

My partner and I took the 6 nights amankora journey (2 nights in each of Thimphu, Punakha and Paro). Aman made all the flights and itinerary arrangements for us. We literally just have to pay and show up. Aman was responsive to my questions through the booking process. The accommodations were consistent with our experience in the other Aman lodge we had stayed with. While I agree with some of the reviews here that commented on the level of finesse of the finishing, my partner and I still think it’s tastefully designed, which has lasted almost two decades since these lodges were first constructed. Their style of design is not the ubiquitous fluorescent or brightly lighted one would find of a five star hotel but rather rustic chic. They lean closer to romantic than functional or multi purposeful. Every time you step away from your room, Aman would surprise you with their signature “ninja service“. It could be cookies, a book, a poem, chocolates, souvenir or even just make up your bed and change your towels. In spite of us being familiar with this signature service of Aman, we still enjoyed the surprise element and looked forward to it each time. You know there is a well connected team that would always know your whereabouts and they would try to anticipate your every needs.

Amankora is just perfect. Everything is perfect: the gorgeous, secluded locations; great food; impeccable design; attention to detail; commitment to sustainability; and most of all the unparalleled service. The design is fabulous, everything is so well thought-out. It feels like you're staying at the well-staffed home of a very gracious host with impeccable taste, who's never at home, so you can do exactly as you please. Examples of the service: -after the first day, they observed my shoe size is on the small side, and placed bedroom slippers in exactly my size (along with a humidifier, which I requested on the first night) on my side of the bed every night, even in the different Aman locations across Bhutan. -The turn-down gifts were unique every night of the trip. Some friends who've been there many times for extended stays have still always gotten unique gifts. -You never actually see them clean your room, but the room is always pristine. -Laundry service is wonderful, everything is returned super fast and neatly hung up. -On treks, they somehow get to the mid-point before you, and surprise you with amazing snacks and tea -Every meal is customized to your preference

We visited Bhutan in December and stayed at the Amankora Paro and Thimphu. The properties were amazing and worked perfectly for our family for four (including two teenagers). The properties are stunning. The service was impeccable, and the guide and driver were awesome. We loved Bhutan and our experiences there. We saw archery (the national sport), paper making, and handicrafts, toured many temples and buildings, had a farm lunch at a Bhutanese house, took a helicopter to Bumdra to see the most amazing monastery and hike to Tiger's Nest, and took a hike to "wow." We also met with a monk to discuss Buddhism. It was a fabulous trip!

Our Bhutan trip has come to an end at Amankora Paro. A beautiful place where majority of Bhutan tourists end their amazing experiences here just like us. I felt sad leaving the place as well as parting with our wonderful, amazing tour guide and driver, Ugyen and Pema. We have been so blessed to be paired up with these two loving and caring individuals whose job was mainly to make our experiences an extra ordinary trip. I can’t thank them enough for taking good care of us from the very beginning until the end. Everyday was a joy being with them. Eight days is quite long to be with the same company, yet it felt so short due to their enjoyable company. They were also the main reason why we have made it to the top of Tiger’s Nest. We were pampered to the max to say the least. Their doting and caring nature made our experiences so grand and so unforgettable. Thanks to Aman for sending them our way, it was truly a big blessing to meet these two awesome men without whose help made our trip even more uniquely very special. Ugyen’s history knowledge helped a lot while Pema’s driving experience helped kept us safely home. Pema’s job is very important and he made us very comfortable while sitting in a winding and treacherous road from Thimphu to Gangtey to Punakha and finally to Paro. That was a lot of driving, yet, it was a magnificent and scenic drive. Both men are so attentive and so patient. Anyone can request for them for a tour guide and a driver via Aman. Again, to all the Aman staff in every Aman in Bhutan. You are all the ASSETS behind Aman’s success. Bhutan is such a mystical, magical and beautiful country, but without staying at any Amankora in Bhutan is definitely incomplete. And without its diligent staff, there would be no Amankora. Thank you so much for such a grandeur experience!!! I can’t wait to use Aman again in the near future in Laos and Amanpulo in Palawan. Service at any Aman is simply incomparable.

We stayed in four of the five Amankora lodges over 8 nights: Paro, Gangtey, Punakha and Thimpu. Overall, we had a wonderful time in beautiful Bhutan. The Amankora people, especially our guide and driver were wonderful. Our airport pick-up, flights to/from, and Bhutan travel plan was executed with military precision. Yet, my review is mixed and frankly difficult as there is much to like about Amankora, but there are aspects that we did not like much. So, here’s the story: 1. Bhutan - the country was beautiful. Unique in the world. We have been blessed to visit over 130 countries and Bhutan is an all-time favorite. The hike to Tiger’s Nest in Paro was a lifetime travel highlight. 2. Our Amankora guide, Tara and driver, Karma were great. They were with us the entire trip. Fun guys. Attentive. Plugged into our needs. The daily tours and movement from lodge to lodge was done with flawlessly. High marks to Tara and Karma. 3. Amankora hotel staff - friendly, helpful and attentive. Each GM greeted us with sincere interest. Every employee and guest interaction was perfect. 4. The spa was fun and massages were first class. I loved the outdoor pool in Punakha, too. 5. The lodge guest rooms - The wood guest room lodges were built around 2005 and are getting a bit “shop worn.” The room lighting is poor - creating a dreary feel. Not Bhutan mystical moody, just dreary. Some of the wood walls and trim just do not match up suggesting poor initial construction. (With new high end competitor Six Senses built and the new Taj resort coming, a guest room remodel seems a must.) 6. Front doors in each lodge bedroom need weather stripping at the bottom (of the door) where a 3/4 inch or more open space exists. This space allows critters and bugs to easily enter any room. In Punaka, I saw staff kill a deadly krait snake just steps from our door; staff also mentioned that cobras and pythons had been seen and/or killed here. Punakha’s lodge is in semi-tropical valley - and snakes are a part of that valley. 7. Food -The food was hit and miss. Wonderful to so-so. There are Amankora gardens on/near each property and a strong local food culture, so we expected more. Other guests mentioned the hit/miss nature of the food. 8. The “house dog” in Paro barked all night and was a disturbance to sleep. Not sure why the staff lets the dog run free at night, barking at whatever she sees. In summary, Amankora has much to like and Bhutan is beautiful, but a few lodge changes seem needed immediately, in my opinion.

Amankora, the sense of peace and quiet filled the air here. It is perhaps the nearest resorts to Tiger's Nest. The hotel's ground is very peaceful and quiet, almost like no one is staying or working there. Staying here is so different from the other hotels, the staff here is professional without being too intrusive. Our room is huge, with the centre bathtub, we also love the fireplace. The bed is very comfortable, when it is cold outside, we just didn't want to wake up. F&B is great here, from sandwiches during our break after climbing Tiger's Nest, to the breakfast and dinner. I don't want to leave the place !

The room set up here is different from the one in Thimphu. The bathroom, while still open to rest of the room, once you put a screen in front of the bathtub, it feels quite enclosed. There is no stand alone sofa but there is a large window banquet for gazing out the window. The dining area is much smaller compare to the one at Thimphu. It almost feel like you are in a student cafeteria as there is no individual tables but several large long tables with chairs. The food is on par with what was provided at Thimphu but pastry was not as good. The gift shop here is tiny. Again, it feels like they figure they need to put a gift shop in so they squeeze it into this tiny space. Given how much open space is available at this property, surely they can build a separate gift shop? But then again, maybe they can't due to zoning law. The spa is where this lodge shine. Unlike the Thimphu lodge, Paro lodge has a separate large spa building. There are two floors in this building. If you come here don't forget to sign up for a hot-stone bath. Your feet will thank you especially if you just went on the Tiger's Nest hike! For my Amankora Thimphu review, you can click on my profile which should list all reviews I post on TripAdvisor or you can go to my blog which I have a more detailed description of my stay plus a short video of a Bhutanese dance at Amankora.
