Como Hotels and Resorts new lodge, the Uma Punakha, is set to open this September and we are giddy with excitement. The intimate, 11-room lodge rests peacefully on a hillside in the lush Punakha Valley of Bhutan, giving guests a breathtaking bird's eye view of lush green fields and the dramatic elegance of the Mo Chu River. The Uma Punakha is the sister lodge to Como's Uma Paro and features the same understated luxury Uma Paro has become known for. Oversized beds, wood-burning stoves and calming neutral colour schemes with vibrant flourishes of traditional hand-painted Bhutanese wall designs make up the resort. Take advantage of Uma Punakha's opportunities for white-water rafting, hiking, and cycling all under the expert supervision of qualified English-speaking guides, while engrossing yourself in this important cultural region.
