WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

A Birdwatcher’s Natural Paradise: The lodge’s strategic position showcases the Phobjikha Valley in all its beauty. This quaint, charming area in central Bhutan is the winter residence of the spiritual black-necked cranes that arrive from Tibet each October. Be front-and-center for their arrival, and wander the countryside on foot or with a guide to learn more about this unique natural sanctuary.

Bhutanese Hospitality and Happiness: The community- and sustainability-oriented Six Senses had a good reason to open, not just one, but five luxury accommodations in Bhutan; a nation guided by the principles of Gross National Happiness. Y

Wellness at its Best: Swedana treatments, a pyramid meditation room and breathtaking 180-degree views of the Phobjikha Valley combine with the pioneering wellness approach woven into the fabric of every Six Senses property. 

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Gangtey is widely known as the home of the picturesque Gangtey Monastery, with its elaborate gate and breathtaking valley views. The stunning Phobjikha Valley is also nearby, and the land is great for birdwatchers. Therefore, Six Senses' highly anticipated hotel in Gangtey includes a unique birdwatching bridge. Throughout the winter rare black-necked cranes can be viewed from the lodge, the nearby Crane Center, or the viewing hide located near the birds' nesting and feeding grounds. Aside from birding, the hotel's true focus is comfort and relaxation. Décor is dominated by uncluttered lines with a natural palate. Weathered timber floors and accented walls have been introduced, and comfy armchairs with footstools invite guests to unwind after long days spent exploring. The structure's exterior is fashioned from local stones and timber-framed windows. The property offers eight suites, one two-bedroom villa, an arrival deck, library, movie and gaming room, all-day dining restaurant, fire pit relaxation area, and a Spa and Wellness Center with two Swedana areas. One of the five locations under the umbrella of Six Senses Bhutan, tourists can move along to Paro, Thimphu, Punakha, or Bumthang knowing that the comforts of the Six Senses brand name await their arrival.
