Hotel Description

If there’s a single thing wrong with Uma Paro, the original COMO resort in the mountain kingdom of Bhutan, it’s only that there’s not enough of it to go around. Fortunately this is a problem with a simple enough solution: build another one. And in the form of Uma by COMO, Punakha, that’s precisely what they’ve done.

Punakha is five hours by car from Paro, and the experience, while similar in certain respects, is necessarily a distinct one. Here you’re nestled in a lush green valley overlooking a bend in the Mo Chu river, in one of just eleven accommodations — nine stunning, modernist valley-view rooms, or one of two lavish villas, a one-bedroom (ideal for romance) and a two-bedroom (perfectly sized for families).

It wouldn’t be unheard-of to spend the bulk of the day just basking in the view, whether from the in-room picture windows, from the restaurant terrace, or from within a cedar tub at the COMO Shambhala Retreat. But it’d equally be a shame not to get out and about — the hotel’s guides are happy to arrange trips to all manner of nearby natural wonders and cultural sites. Simply put, this is one of the world’s most extraordinary places, made all the more so by the presence of one (or two) of the world’s most extraordinary hotels. Don’t miss it.

How to get there: The closest airport to Uma by COMO, Punakha is Paro International Airport. Paro is located approximately 5 hours by car from the Punakha Valley. (Flights are available from Kathmandu, Delhi, Bangkok and Calcutta but all flights at Paro are by visual flight rules only and are restricted to daytime hours.)

Many travelers split their time between the Punakha Valley and Paro. COMO offers paired itineraries, combining a partial stay at both Uma by COMO, Paro and Uma by COMO, Punakha. For more information or assistance, please contact customerservice@tablethotels.com.
