Uma By Como is situated on a bend in the Mo Chu river, shrouded in the alpine stillness of the Punakha Valley. Providing luxury accommodation in this less-visited area of Bhutan, a five-hour drive from Paro, Uma by COMO, Punakha offers guests exceptional access to some of Bhutan’s most celebrated landscapes and historic sites, including the famous Temple of the Divine Madman and the imposing Punakha Dzong. This spirit of adventure is the hallmark of all COMO’s Uma hotels.

The Bukhari restaurant serves both local and international cuisine, while the stand alone COMO Shambhala Retreat offers traditional holistic therapies.
Among luxury hotels in Bhutan, few have rooms with views like those at Uma by COMO, Punakha. The rooms which some with outdoor terraces are light and airy with king-size or twin beds, sheesham-wood furniture and bright wall paintings by local artisans.

At Uma by COMO, Punakha, dining immerses you in the traditional flavours of Bhutan-whether you are a guest or staying elsewhere in the valley and seek authentic local cuisine at one of the finest restaurants in the country. Much of the produce that comes from local farmers-Punakha which is considered one of the most bountiful valleys in Bhutan-which means we benefit from fresh vegetable, fruit and dairy products every day. All of this is used in traditional dishes as well as the international menus.
Discover the calming spirit of the spa in Punakha. COMO Shambhala Retreat at Uma offers a range of holistic, Asian-inspired treatments including signature massages, facials and body therapies. Treatments are also available to those staying elsewhere in the Punakha Valley who wish to use the spa. The facility is nestled in the hush of a woodland glade near to the hotel, and has two treatment rooms: a double for couples and a single room featuring a traditional Bhutanese hot stone bath. Both rooms have far-reaching views of the valley.
