Amankora Thimphu
Thimphu

Amankora’s five distinct lodges, based in Thimphu, Paro, Punakha, Gangtey and Bumthang, offer a unique and unrivalled circuit through Bhutan’s valleys.

Surrounded by blue pine forests and situated on the outskirts of Thimphu's smartest Motithang district in the upper reaches of the Thimphu Valley, Amankora Thimphu is a quiet retreat tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the Kingdom's capital city whilst being ideally placed for exploring Thimphu’s museums, traditional shops and numerous cultural sites.

Amankora Thimphu is a 16-suite lodge, built of dzong-inspired architecture incorporating high stone, white-washed buildings that are accessed through an enclosed arrival courtyard; think Le Corbusier meets traditional Bhutanese architecture. The suites combine a bedroom with a king-size bed, and a cosy lounge area with a reading chair and a window banquette. These alcoves provide views across a beautifully landscaped courtyard, or over across the stream and thickets of pine forest. For an extra touch of homeliness, a traditional bukhari is positioned between the bedroom and the bathroom. The suite’s interiors are designed in classic, understated Aman style, with traditional wood panelling and chocolate brown hues throughout. The spacious bathroom opens from the bedroom and has twin vanities, a separate shower and a terrazzo-clad bath.

In the centre of the property, stairs lead from the main entry point to a dramatic combined living and dining room which features soaring ceilings and wood panelled walls. Adjacent to this area is a very pleasant flagstone outdoor dining deck with views over the nearby stream and surrounding blue pine forest, the perfect spot to dine under the stars or to enjoy an aperitif in the dimming dusk light. Your sumptuous experience at Amankora Thimphu is complimented by a fantastic spa, which has three treatment rooms, with an extensive treatment menu, and a steam room. 

**** 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****

When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.

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
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
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
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
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
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
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
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
