At Uma Paro, our approach to cuisine is modern, light and respectful of local nuances. Menus revive traditional Bhutanese offerings as well as offer contemporary interpretations of neighbouring cuisines. These include Indian dishes from the charcoal tandoor oven. The experience is nourishing, relying on fresh produce grown in the surrounding region, from hand-churned butter, to wild mushrooms and honey. All this can also be enjoyed on room service menus. We also offer classic comfort dishes from pizzas to burgers. Uma Paro works with a local farmer in the Paro Valley who maintains the hotel’s market garden. This means you enjoy the freshest produce, brought from field to table with minimum delay.
COMO Shambhala Retreat is Uma Paro's holistic heart, a place to improve wellness with Asian-inspired treatments, including massage and Ayurveda. We also make extensive use of natural, local ingredients, working with Bhutan's Hospital of Traditional Medicine. Facilities include treatment rooms, a Hot Stone Bath house, a large indoor pool with outdoor sundeck, steam rooms for men and women, a gym and Yoga studio with Paro Valley views. Some other activities in and around Uma Paro include shopping, yoga, day walks, camping treks, biking, cultural tours, and 4X4 drives.
