Amankora Punakha is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Aman Resorts in Asia.
This delightful lodge is reached by crossing a pedestrian bridge over the Mo Chhu River and is situated amidst lush rice fields, with views to the Punakha Dzong. The eight suites, divided between three rammed-earth buildings, are situated in an orange orchard gazing across the fields to the Punakha Valley beyond. All suites feature wood panelled interiors and a traditional wood burning 'bukhari' stove. The living room and dining area are located in a traditional Bhutanese farmhouse which once belonged to the queen mother. There is also a delightful sun terrace for dining out or just relaxing in the pristine surroundings. Yoga, massage and a steam room are all provided to make your stay as relaxed as possible. A private dinner in the queen mother's farmhouse is a must.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.Bill Bryson
