Our favourite rooms
Each Lodge Suite has a balcony with 180-degree views over Thimphu Valley, and a freestanding bath tub by the floor-to-ceiling windows. The two- and three-bedroom villas come with space for entertaining and private spa treatment rooms.
As tempting as those reflective ponds are, stick to swimming in the 25m heated indoor pool.
Six Senses spas are revered worldwide, and this one lives up to expectations and then some. Work your way down the treatment menu, starting with the signature Bhutanese hot-stone bath.
Bring some thick socks – they’ll be good for hiking, and for keeping your feet toasty on cold temple floors.
The lodge isn’t set up for wheelchair users.
All ages welcome. Cots can be added to all rooms. Babysitting is available for $25 an hour; the first two hours are free.
The resort’s entire energy supply comes from hydropower, and staff work tirelessly to recycle products and protect the local environment. Water is bottled at the on-site reverse-osmosis facility, and there’s an organic garden where vegetables are grown for the restaurant.
