Amankora Thimphu is located on the outskirts of Motithang, Thimphu's upscale residential neighborhood. The lodge comprises of 16 suites. Surrounding the the lodge on on side is a hill which is covered by blue pine, giving the area somewhat secluded private atmosphere. The main shopping and business areas are however only a short drive away.
The resort's whitewashed stone building architecture are dzong inspired. There is an enclosed courtyard through which one enters the building. Each of the suites features wood paneled walls with high ceilings. The Spa includes three treatment rooms, steam room and changing areas.
Really appreciate YANA's professional organization of the entire trip. Could not imagine how a trekking trip could such be well organized - more or less like a 5-star hotel with the only difference of we were at more than 3,000 above sea level. Special thanks to Yeshey and the chef who had given tons of assistance when I was descending due to attitude sickness. - Simon Liu, Hong Kong
