Bhutan’s Six Senses resort promises serenity and happiness
This is the getaway you've been yearning for
Known for its Gross National Happiness index, Bhutan is that one place where unwinding and rejuvenation are celebrated. And much like the location it is nestled in, Six Senses Bhutan makes a great case for you to just stop and take a deep breath. The country’s philosophies of peace have been carefully woven into the design and operations of the luxury chain, which has five luxe resort chains within: Thimphu, Punakha, Gangtey, Bumthang and Paro.

Six Senses Bhutan offers 82 spacious villas and suites with stunning views spread across five valleys and resorts. Each lodge comes with a personal Six Senses Spa and Wellness Village, along with a layered approach to well-being (spa-lovers will love this). Every property has been designed to immerse guests into the local culture and rejuvenate at their own pace. Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma were also seen taking in the serenity of the view at one of these resorts.

The star-favourite lodges, which vary in style, showcase the diversity of each valley they are located on. The spacious interiors are framed by subtle references to Bhutanese architecture, seen in the simple lines of the natural timber furniture and the presence of locally-inspired touches like the traditional wood-burning stoves and vegetable-dyed, antique-washed Himalayan rugs. All five Six Senses in the country properties offer majestic views that will make you want to stay and gaze out into the horizon all day. Swipe through the gallery to get to know a little more about all the resorts.
Thimphu: The highlight of staying at this lodge are the epic sunset martinis, with a monumental view of the hills. It doesn't get better than that folks.
Punakha: If you’re the outdoorsy type, then don’t miss the moderate and scenic two-hour trek to Chorten Ningpo for a picnic breakfast. However, if you don’t like the outdoors as much, the decadent breakfast spread at the end of the trek is going to make your trudge up the hill absolutely worth it.
Paro: While the main highlight of your stay in Paro is doing the arduous trek to Taktsang Monastery or the Tiger's Nest. There is also mushroom foraging from June to October, organic farming and seed planting to partake in.
Gangtey: There’s something for everyone at this lodge, you can learn how to make traditional home-brewed alcohol, go whitewater rafting or go on a scenic bird watching tour (this is not exhausting we promise).
Bumthang: Enjoy a BBQ dinner, cuddle with the nearby local dogs or just zone out gazing at the stunning mountain views, this resort is high-key a paradise for homebodies. Fair warning: You might not want to leave.
In essence: Six Senses Bhutan offers everything one needs to experience the country to the fullest. Whether it’s hiking through pristine forests, meditating amongst the gorgeous scenery or learning how to make home-brewed alcohol, the luxury resort has endless options to nurture the mind, body, spirit and soul.
