Amankora - Punakha
Based around a traditional farmhouse built by Her Majesty the (Bhutanese) Queen Mother, Amankora Punakha is surrounded by orchards of tropical fruit and paddy fields. Flanked by the Mo Chu river, access, via a suspension bridge decked with fluttering prayer flags, is a short drive through rural pastures. There are eight suites with views of the valley and the Punakha Dzong (monastery) in the distance. Days spent here are relaxed and indulgent - following a hiking trail, relaxing in the spa with sauna, steam, massage and meditation or gently floating down the river.
