Amankora Gangtey
Gangtey

Amankora’s five distinct lodges, based in Thimphu, Paro, Punakha, Gangtey and Bumthang, offer a unique and unrivalled circuit through Bhutan’s valleys. Located in the picturesque, little-visited Phobjikha Valley, positioned on a forested knoll close to the valley floor, lies the luxurious Amankora Gangtey.

The eight suite Amankora lodge provides an exclusive hideaway, with broad sweeping views of the stunning valley landscape, fields of dwarf bamboo and potato crops, and the 16th century Gangtey Goenpa in the nearby village of Gangtey. The lodge accommodation and guest areas are encompassed in one rammed-earth building with a combined living and dining room filled with cosy chairs, sofas and family style dining tables, with phenomenal views through the floor to ceiling windows over the valley and surrounding mountains. The spacious suites are identical in layout to those of Amankora Thimphu, with an open plan living and bedroom area, and have stunning views across the valley. There is a small spa at Amankora Gangtey, which consists of two massage treatment rooms, and an intimate yoga or meditation room, perfect for unwinding after a day of exploring and walking – the hot stone bath is highly recommended!

Guests staying at Amankora Gangtey will be able to stroll through the quaint village of Gangtey and take in the ancient altars and ramparts of the massive Gangtey Goenpa. The Phobjikha Valley is part of the Black Mountains National Park, one of Bhutan’s most important wildlife sanctuaries. Each winter it becomes home to a flock of over 400 endangered black-necked cranes arriving from Tibet and Amankora Gangtey has prime view of this event. There are also numerous nature walk and treks throughout the valley’s varied terrain.

**** SPECIAL OFFER For guests staying seven nights or more, a tailor-made itinerary based on preferred length of stay will include the following on a complimentary basis: long road permits, private transport with driver and guide, plus one 60-minute massage at the Amankora spa per Amankora Journey, all offers are subject to availability****

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
