Enjoy five-star accommodations at each of Amankora
The cozy Valley Resort is without a doubt one of the most comfortable accommodation options in all of Bumthang. The resort consists of just nine rooms, each of which features an enclosed balcony with great views of the surrounding green hills. Each room also comes with a large bed, warm blankets, and basic bathroom amenities. The extra-large bathrooms are equipped with modern showers, where you’ll enjoy fresh water pumped directly from a nearby spring. As a guest of the Valley Resort, you’ll also have access to laundry services, currency exchange, Wi-Fi internet access, and scrumptious breakfasts at the hotel restaurant.
The resort is located along the Bumthang-Ura Highway, making it easy to reach whether you’re driving to Bumthang or arriving via air. It’s also close to the marvelous Jambay Lhakhang, which is regarded as the oldest temple in Bhutan. Make sure to pay a visit to see the lhakhang’s golden murals and rows of prayer wheels. Afterwards, take some time to explore the town of Jakar; the local brewery and Swiss cheese factory are worth a look, and the towering hillside fortress known as the Jakar Dzong makes for great photos. When you’re done exploring, stop at the Valley Resort’s spa before returning to your room. There’s nothing better than a traditional hot stone bath to wind down the day.
