A wellness pioneer is bringing a jolt of fresh energy to Bhutan’s hospitality scene with a new collection of rustic-chic lodges.
This month, Six Senses will unveil three of the five intimate lodges it has planned across the Himalayan nation: one located among the rice fields of Punakha, one overlooking the capital of Thimphu, and one near the historic ruins of the Paro Valley. Each resort will have only 16 to 20 suites and a handful of private villas, along with amenities that emphasize health and mindfulness, such as meditation huts and prayer rooms. The remaining two lodges, Gangtey and Bumthang, are slated to open in March. sixsenses.com; doubles from US$1,010.
