Nestled in the serene landscapes of Bhutan, my journey with COMO Uma Punakha was nothing short of enchanting.

Punakha, a timeless retreat, feels like a trip back in time. The magnificent Dzong and temples stand as silent witnesses to centuries of history, whispering tales of a bygone era. As I explored, the rivers, with personalities akin to individuals, flowed gracefully, adding a lyrical charm to the already mesmerizing surroundings.

The lodge’s design is a testament to Bhutanese craftsmanship, showcasing a harmony between tradition and modernity. The immersive experience curated by COMO Uma Bhutan ensures that every moment is a celebration of Bhutanese culture.
One of the highlights was the spa experience, where I indulged in the traditional hot stone bath. The spa, nestled in the heart of the lodge, offered a sanctuary of tranquility. The hot stone bath, a centuries-old Bhutanese practice, rejuvenated both body and soul, leaving me refreshed and invigorated.
The culinary journey was a delight for the senses. Exquisite Bhutanese and international dishes were crafted with precision, reflecting the commitment to quality and authenticity. Each meal was a celebration of flavors, a symphony that resonated with the essence of this country.
