Uma by COMO, Punakha Review
Nothing lies between you and the breathtaking Punakha Valley at COMO's second Bhutan property, an intimate, discreetly luxurious retreat situated in a less-traveled area of Bhutan that's for prime nature and historic exploration. The nine Valley View rooms—some with terraces—and two separate villas (one- and two-bedrooms) all have uninterrupted views of the alpine hillside and the Mo Chu river as it twists through orchards and rice fields. The simple decor of sheesham-woord furnishings, local artwork, crisp Italian linens and antique ceiling fans let the views take center stage; there's also free Wi-Fi. Fresh veggies, fruits, and dairy products from local farms are featured in the Bukhari restaurant's Bhutanese/International menu. Set in a woodland glade next to the hotel, the two-room spa (which is also open to non-hotel guests) features a traditional stone bath and holistic face and body treatments. Both Uma by COMO properties in Bhutan can arrange your flights and visas, and they offer single or joint 3-, 5-, 7-, or 10-night itineraries—led by English-speaking guides–that spotlight the country's cultural landmarks and include activities like trekking, archery, or rafting.
