Wow. That is surely the first thing to come out of traveler’s mouths who step onto the property of COMO Uma in Punakha. Boasting spectacular views over a lush, bright green valley and rice paddies in the smallest landlocked state in Asia, COMO Uma Punakha is an incredible destination.
With just eleven rooms, COMO Uma Punakha is cozy and intimate, set in the thick wilderness for the ultimate relaxing getaway. Natural light submerges the interior rooms through floor-to-ceiling windows; rooms are adorned with oversized beds, wood-burning stoves and relaxing muted color schemes. Bhutanese artworks and hand-knotted rugs from Nepal pepper the spaces, adding a reminder of the culture you’ve stepped into.
Opt for one of the two luxury villas which provide a little more luxury, seclusion and the services of a butler. COMO Uma Punakha is a fantastic base for adventurers; hiking, white water rafting and cycling are all activities available through Uma. Nearby attractions like Punakha Dzong (a temple complex) and the Divine Madman’s Temple are also easily accessible from Uma.
Try authentic cuisine at the Bukhari restaurant after a day of venturing around! The constantly changing menu offers dishes like gnocchi, cassoulet and delicious Wagyu beef burgers. After having your fill, relax in a small spa, complete with a Bhutanese hot stone bath overlooking the valley. A range of Asian-inspired massages and therapies are offered for guests, including couples treatments for those looking for a more intimate experience.
