Six Senses Bhutan is part of Virtuoso’s exclusive Preview Program. Virtuoso Preview was created especially for an extremely limited number of qualified pre-opening (or re-opening) properties to position them among the world's best. Member Advisors can look forward to pre-opening series of information and updates, member training, on-property contacts and, preferred rates and exclusive benefits and amenities.

Scheduled to open Fall 2018.

Six Senses Bhutan will move you – to pause and think. This colorful Himalayan Kingdom lives by its ethos of gross national happiness. Journey through the vertiginous scenery of the western and central valleys, and you can’t help but find meaningful and uplifting experiences at every turn. That’s why our guest suites are distributed between five intimate lodges. Each has a unique character and all embrace our Six Senses guiding principles, which include a Six Senses Spa and Wellness Center, mindful eating, sleep and self-discovery. Visit one, or any combination, and immerse yourself in Bhutan’s spirituality, heritage and hospitality.

Thimphu: Situated within apple orchards and pine forests, yet still within reach of the capital’s attractions, Six Senses Thimphu is perched on an auspicious hillside overlooking the shimmering lights of Thimphu. With its grand design and outdoor ponds reflecting the sky above, this is our very own Palace in the Sky, with banquet facilities for 60 guests, pool, prayer pavilion, business center and sunken outdoor performance deck. Punakha: The Flying Farmhouse amidst the rice fields, this beautiful lodge has a rustic feel and is blessed with a warmer climate. You’ll find a choice of suites and villas, pool, library, yoga and meditation huts, and from here you can visit one of the highlights: the majestic Punakha Dzong. Gangtey: Known as the Traditional Birdwatching Bridge, this lodge is indeed strategically positioned to showcase a 180-degree view of the little-visited Phobjikha Valley, home to the fascinating black necked cranes.

Bumthang: Carefully built as a Forest within a Forest, this is an auspicious base from which you can take in hallowed monuments, monasteries and winter festivals. If you’re looking for peace, come on in.

Paro: Designed to maximize what is surely one of the most scenic settings within the Six Senses Bhutan journey, this lodge is known as Stone Ruins – you’ll understand why when you dine among them.

Best of the Best

Where can one stay in one place, yet experience five lodges? In the Happiest Place on Earth, Six Senses Bhutan. Guests of Six Senses Bhutan, opening in Fall 2018, will choose from five individual lodges, representing the heritage and hospitality of Thimphu, Punakha, Gangtey, Bumthang and Paro, respectively. Those seeking a new destination for trekking and cultural immersion, with a strong spa presence, will find the lodge’s breadth extraordinary – whether for birdwatching from a bridge at the Gangtey lodge, gathering around an open fire at Paro or soaking up the forest views through expansive windows in their Bumthang suite.

Hotel Tip

Stay in one, or stay in all five of the lodges. Each is different, yet all share the same farm-fresh dining and extensive spa facilities.
