Though five-star luxury may not be the first thing that springs to mind when one thinks of Bhutan, ‘The Happiest Place on Earth’ does offer a selection of stunning hotels, strategically placed around the country so that every corner has somewhere that offers a sophistication and elegance of accommodation to match any other country in this region.
Gangtey Lodge, Gangte Valley
Nestled away in the heart of the beautiful Gangte Valley near the centre of Bhutan, the Gangtey Lodge offers the ideal luxury abode from which to explore the stunning surroundings. With the interior exclusively designed by award-winning designer Mary Lou Thomson and with only 12 guest rooms, the lodge offers an intimacy that is difficult to match and really allows you to unwind and soak in the scenery at your own pace. If the view from the Lodge isn’t enough, from here you can also soar above the valley on the world’s highest commercial balloon flight.
