At a Glance

In 2004, Aman was the first international hotel brand to open in Bhutan, with five lodges across the country. The properties, which are known in their entirety as Amankora, make up an appealing circuit for visits to Bhutan that can range from one to two weeks. Architect Kerry Hill designed the lodges with tastefully monastic bedrooms and minimalist spaces in nature. In their various locations, however, each has a different style and setting. Amankora Paro offers natural minimalism nestled within a pine forest outside of Bhutan’s international hub. Indagare can help match the combination of lodges that might be right for you on a journey through Bhutan. Here are a few highlights:

Indagare Loves

  • Hiking to Tiger’s Nest, the iconic dzong chiseled into the edge of a mountaintop
  • Private yoga with one of the excellent teachers who pass through Amankora’s circuit
  • Ending a trip with a nap in the sunshine to the sound of the swift river below


Located about 45 minutes from Paro town, this is the Amankora lodge where guests typically stay at the end of their journey. The lodge, which is bigger than the other Amankoras, has 24 suites in separate buildings nestled along a rushing river with streams circumventing the property. The sound of rushing water, the cover of fir trees and the mountains in the distance make this lodge special. Bhutan’s most famous temple built on the edge of a cliff, the Tiger’s Nest, is nearby—and the two-hour hike up makes for an ideal final day on an Amankora journey. Spacious suites are designed in Aman’s minimalist style with Bhutanese-style windows framing the sumptuous views, blonde wood paneled walls, soaring ceilings, a freestanding deep soaking tub, and a traditional wood-burning bukhari to keep guests cozy on chilly nights. For those who have completed the Aman circuit, this property ties all the lodges together nicely.

Who Should Stay

Visitors to Bhutan who wish to end their experience with a hike to the iconic Tiger’s Nest. The size of the property may seem less intimate than the other Amankoras.
