The architecture and design of the spacious lodge reflect the values of Bhutanese culture: simplicity and harmony. The minimal design puts the focus firmly on the scenic views of ancient peaks and the lush river valleys. The rooms are spacious and elegant with natural textiles, including a Naturalmat organic bed and bed linens, with a wood-burning Bukhari stove.


The cuisine at Thimphu is inspired by seasonality, with wholesome, flavourful dishes produced from organic local produce. A truly delicious journey, the culinary and mixology teams draw inspiration from local herbs and plants to create a unique and delicious menu. Our drink of choice? Opt for the butterfly-pea flower daiquiris.

In keeping with the Bhutanese ethos that happiness is the core of health, get a taste of this wellness philosophy at the spa with bespoke wellness consultations leaving you with a rejuvenated body and mind. Elsewhere, unearth the cultural heritage key to the faith of the Bhutanese people as you discover a 16th-century monastic school and get a private astrology reading.


Bhutan is the world’s only carbon-negative country, and Six Senses puts sustainability at the forefront and works to achieve carbon neutrality across their property, reflected through their management of energy, water, waste, purchasing, and chemical usage.
