Amankora Punakha is set in sparkling verdancy east of the Dochu La Pass and just north of the resplendent Punakha Dzong. Reached by crossing a suspension bridge over the Mo Chhu (river), the Amankora Punakha lodge includes a traditional Bhutanese farmhouse built by a former Je Kempo (Chief Abbot of Bhutan). The farmhouse houses the Dining Room and intimate relaxation areas. The courtyard offers outdoor dining during Punakha’s temperate months.
Accessed by crossing a suspension bridge over the Mo Chhu, the lodge is centred by a traditional Bhutanese farmhouse built by a former Je Kempo (Chief Abbot of Bhutan). This quaint, three-storey structure with its preserved vegetable dye wall paintings is now a reception area with a Dining Room, traditional Altar Room, a courtyard for alfresco dining and a tea pavilion. Just beyond is the Spa with two treatment rooms, a steam room, changing areas and a yoga/meditation room. Eight suites, located in three rammed-earth dwellings, are situated in an orange orchard with views across the rice fields and up the Punakha Valley.
Identical in design to those of Amankora Paro, Amankora Punakha’s eight suites are set in an orange orchard with views across the rice terraces. The suites are identical to the design of the suites at Amankora Paro and feature wood-panelled interiors, a traditional bukhari, king-size bed, terrazzo-clad bath, shower, vanities and daybed. Suites are individually heated during the cooler winter months and air-conditioned in the summer months.

Ohter activities around this spectacular location include white water rafting, skiing, fishing, hiking, and the Bhutan national sport, archery.
