“Experience the mysterious yet elegant charm of Bhutan, through the Six Senses’ newest locations. ”
Six Senses Hotel earlier announced that it would enter the world’s happiest country — the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. The creation of this calm and peaceful resort, is located in the central and western valleys of Bhutan. With the first opening in October, there are five hotels, including Thimphu, Paro, Punakha, Gangtey and Bumthang all launching this year.
- The Six Senses Hotel in Thimphu, the capital of the city, is the largest of the five, inspired by the traditional architecture of the local “Zong”, also known as the “Heavenly Palace”. The design is based on simple lines, with layers of wood and natural pure stones, which are more modern and retain the traditional features. Six Senses Paro Hotel is adjacent to the remains of the “Zong”, also known as the “megalithic remains”. The stone walls, fireplaces and wood in the room are in sharp contrast, creating a free atmosphere. Six Senses Punakha Hotel is located in a fertile terraced field, inspired by crops and traditional cantilever bridges, presenting a “sky farmhouse” on the rice fields. The room has a mud-brick bathroom and is decorated with exquisite decorations such as glass jars and bamboo and rattan fabrics. The Six Sense Gangtey Hotel is located in the green pine forest and is known as the “Forest Lin”. Guests can enjoy the natural beauty through the wide windows. The room has been decorated with old wooden lamp holders, tables and chairs, with patterned log walls and wooden floors to create a warm and tidy feeling, and to complement the colorful forest scenery. Located in the central Fubica Valley, Gangti Liushan Hotel is also the habitat of black-necked cranes. The hotel has a glass gazebo for guests to enjoy the magnificent view of the birds flying in the sky, also known as the “Bird Watching Bridge”.
- The five hotels have a total of 82 suites and villas, which fully express the mysterious and elegant charms of Bhutan, while they carry out the “six good” purposes of integrating with nature, and they promote the goal of sustainable development and conservation of nature. Because Bhutan is full of alpine valleys, each valley has its own fascinating features. Travelers can spend more than ten days exploring Bhutan, and guests staying at Six Senses Hotel can enjoy the unique experiences arranged by the “Hotel Guest Experience Specialist” to marvel in the amazing scenery of Bhutan. In the hotel, guests can also meditate in the prayer pavilion, hike to the Punakha National Monument, participate in the Gangtey farmhouse activities, and enjoy a rich feast on the Bumtang Tree House. The Six Senses Group’s spa is also famous for introducing the hot stone baths of Thimphu and Bumthang, the steaming care of Gangtey, and the spa room of the Paro ruins, so that guests can relax and unwind.
