Uma Punakha, an Exclusive Adventure Retreat, Opened September 15th
Escape to a secret world of remote tranquility in Bhutan! Only eleven rooms will fill the new hotel presented by COMO Hotels and Resorts this September. A sister hotel to the luxurious Uma Paro, the Uma Punakha will be a secluded getaway that enjoys no shortage of serene elegance and sophistication. An exclusive experience in the heart of the Punakha Valley, the hotel will serve as a gateway to adventure and culture in a remote Himalayan region of Bhutan.
Hiking, cycling, and white-water rafting await the adventurous traveler of this hidden Bhutanese oasis. Recuperation from a day of healthy activity can be found at the resort’s Shambhala Spa Retreat, which offers hot stone baths and traditional Bhutanese therapies. Afterwards, guests can settle down to a comfortable sleep in the signature handmade Italian linen that adorns every bed in the hotel.
Flush with natural light and set by a river bend cutting through the valley, the Uma Punakha is a magical picture of natural wonder and exotic beauty. In addition to various trekking and adventurous activities, rare cultural experiences abound in a region that sequesters two of the countries great historical treasures. The Temple of the Divine Madman, a 14th-century temple dedicated to the Tibetan Buddhist Saint Drukpa Kuenley, and the Punakha Dzong, a fortress and administrative center to the Kingdom, offer a look into Bhutan’s past that is seldom available to travelers.
