Conceived as a forest within a forest, this stunning Six Senses property is located amidst dense blue pine trees, right by the river. If peace and exclusivity are what you seek, look no further: the resort’s setting is a visual and auditory delight close to hallowed temples and monasteries and imbues visitors with an uncommon sense of serenity. Six Senses staff are passionate about their eco credentials. Sustainability is paramount here, from eco-friendly water and waste management to a focus on green energy, thus preserving the ethos of the world’s only carbon-negative country. The lodge has eight beautifully appointed suites and one two-bedroom villa comprising the property. Traditional Bhutanese fare is offered for diners to partake in authentic local cuisine, while at the wellness spa, stress melts away following a Bhutanese hot stone bath. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide exceptional views, interiors are clean and contemporary, while recycled wood furnishings and timber walls deliver a sense of warmth. As one of the branches of the Six Senses Bhutan umbrella, it is directly connected to the four other Six Senses hotels in Bhutan’s west.
Tranquility: For harmony with nature, the lodge is hard to beat. It serves as an ideal base from which to explore nature and to experience a peaceful part of the planet that relatively few people have explored.
Generous Accommodations: Beautifully appointed and spacious suites wholly complement and meld with lush forest surroundings. For even more roominess, the two-bedroom villa provides all the space you need to breathe, stretch out and unwind.
Sustainability: Six Senses Bumthang is committed to low impact on the environment and wildlife, and a positive impact on the local community - befitting Bhutan, the world's only carbon-negative country.
The lodge is comprised of eight suites, each covering a generous 985 square feet. Design is clean and contemporary, with timber floors, walls and furniture which blend into the emerald forest views visible through the floor-to-ceiling windows and from the 200-square-foot private terrace.
For groups or families traveling together, Six Senses Bumthang also has a spacious two-bedroom villa option, which expands across 2,788 square feet, including outdoor space.
