Six Senses Bumthang
Bumthang

Six Senses Bumthang’s remote location within an evergreen pine grove has won it its nickname ‘Forest within a Forest’, and effort has been made to ensure that the natural surroundings can be seen from practically every angle throughout the property, meaning you feel truly immersed.

Uninterrupted views of the towering trees and gardens are let in through enormous floor-to-ceiling windows and the natural timber walls help blur the boundaries between indoors and outdoors, too. Other striking yet subtle architectural features have also been sensitively designed to guarantee the luxury property blends into its natural landscape, from the wooden balconies to an on-site ‘treehouse’!

The eco-luxury lodge is relatively small in size, with just eight suites and one two-bedroom villa (ideal for families), so you expect an intimate atmosphere here as well as personalised service. All the spacious rooms come with en-suite bathrooms and the interiors are best described as understated chic, with a focus on minimalist furniture and neutral colours, which highlight the greenery outside.

Wonderful Bhutanese cuisine is served in the open-plan restaurant here, and there is even the option to dine up in the ‘treehouse’ for those after a more exclusive experience. There are plenty of other facilities and amenities to indulge in at this resort; when in need of a rest, take your pick between sitting in the cosy library with a good book, relaxing in the living room with more of an atmosphere, or even treat yourself to a special hot stone bath in the spa and wellness centre.

Thanks to its central location in Bhutan, a stay here guarantees that you will learn about the country’s rich history and culture, as Six Senses offers insightful excursions to local sites and sacred monasteries daily - all of which are in easy driving distance. Bumthang is especially worth visiting during the winter festivals, during which you will get a real taste of local life.

Following Six Senses’ recommended journey exploring the Himalayan kingdom, we suggest staying at this lodge in conjunction with the brand’s other beautiful lodges in Thimphu, Punakha, Gangtey and Paro.

*This lodge is set to open in Spring 2020*

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.

Client Testimonials

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, 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
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
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 preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
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
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
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 provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
