Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful breathtaking place. Staff are wonderful and attentive. Lives up to the Aman expectations and some more. Love that the rooms are always done up when you leave for breakfast, or an outing. Personalised turn down service . Adds to the whole Bhutan experience

I loved my 7-night stay at 4 of the Amankora lodges. All the properties are beautiful, with an understated and very zen design (they're also very similar so don't expect huge variation from lodge to lodge). My favourites were Punakha (which has a very nice heated swimming pool, and a cozy meditation room in the main house which I used quite a bit), and Thimphu, which is just a short distance from town, located in a peaceful forest with a small stream running through it. The staff at all the lodges were fantastic: hospitable, kind and very attentive. You really can't ask for more. Bhutan itself is among my favourite places I've ever travelled to: incredible nature, beautiful monuments and architecture, and shockingly few tourists. I hope it stays this way. My itinerary, which we more or less planned day-by-day was: Thimphu - Gangtey - Punakha - Punakha - Thimphu - Paro - Paro My one bit of advice to any active traveller would be to organise a trek in addition to staying at the lodges: this is the one thing I felt I missed out on and will be sure to do next time.

Truly excellent experience. As so often with Aman resorts, the highlight of our stay was the tender love and care shown by the staff. We would like to call out our excellent guide, Karma, who consistently went above and beyond the call of duty, and our driver Theshen. Both were resourceful, proactive and joyful.

We had a fantastic stay at this majestic property set amongst woodlands high above the centre of Thimpu, the perfect escape from the city streets. Our suite was everything I’d hoped for and more. The treatments were an exceptional standard and the entire team delivered a true Aman experience from start to finish. A special thank you must go to Mongul for taking such great care of us and giving us plenty of background to life in Bhutan.

If I could give more stars I would! It is not often one comes across a place which is almost perfect in every regard. A beautiful hotel whose architecture melds seamlessly with the surrounding area. The rooms are warm, clean, welcoming and spacious with views of the forest. A beguiling, peaceful and special place. The food is amazing and the service exemplary with our every ask catered to. Special thanks to Phuntsho, Kinley, Chimchi, Anton and all the team at Amankora! Katrinche La! Thank you for looking after us - we feel truly blessed to have been guests.

See part 1 at Aman Paro Aman’s prioritisation of their guest comfort was impressed on us the day the king visited the property. We weren’t restricted in any part of the hotel (besides the library where the king was hosting dignitaries of course). We were treated with equal respect and was free to use any part of the property. This would never have been the case in anywhere else. Our guide (Kesang) and driver (Uygeng) were experienced and reliable. We felt safe and attended to on the whole journey. As my partner and I are not in favour of an activities filled vacation, we cut out quite a lot of the sight seeing activities. I almost felt bad and slightly rude every time I had to turn down Kesang’s offer to show us those centuries old monasteries and Dzongs listed on our itineraries. Where we do agree to visit (like some of the iconic Dzong in Punakha), we didn’t stay very long. We spent most of our time enjoying the room, the property and the environment that never fail to fascinate us. We took short walks around the properties surroundings. We particularly enjoyed the pool in Punakha. Although we had wish that the pool temperature could be a tad warmer ( just a couple of degrees), it would have been perfect. Nonetheless, I would say Punakha property was our favourite of the three.

Copying Aman Paro review as everything applies to this property: Amankora is just perfect. Everything is perfect: the gorgeous, secluded locations; great food; impeccable design; attention to detail; commitment to sustainability; and most of all the unparalleled service. The design is fabulous, everything is so well thought-out. It feels like you're staying at the well-staffed home of a very gracious host with impeccable taste, who's never at home, so you can do exactly as you please. Examples of the service: -after the first day, they observed my shoe size is on the small side, and placed bedroom slippers in exactly my size (along with a humidifier, which I requested on the first night) on my side of the bed every night, even in the different Aman locations across Bhutan. -The turn-down gifts were unique every night of the trip. Some friends who've been there many times for extended stays have still always gotten unique gifts. -You never actually see them clean your room, but the room is always pristine. -Laundry service is wonderful, everything is returned super fast and neatly hung up. -On treks, they somehow get to the mid-point before you, and surprise you with amazing snacks and tea -Every meal is customized to your preference

We visited Bhutan in December and stayed at the Amankora Paro and Thimphu. The properties were amazing and worked perfectly for our family for four (including two teenagers). The properties are stunning. The service was impeccable, and the guide and driver were awesome. We loved Bhutan and our experiences there. We saw archery (the national sport), paper making, and handicrafts, toured many temples and buildings, had a farm lunch at a Bhutanese house, took a helicopter to Bumdra to see the most amazing monastery and hike to Tiger's Nest, and took a hike to "wow." We also met with a monk to discuss Buddhism. It was a fabulous trip!

Amankora is a beautiful restful place. The rooms are large and simply but beautifully decorated although rather dark making it quite difficult to read. Entertainment in some form was arranged each evening from local dancing to a talk on Bhuddism. There is a nice courtyard to sit should it be warm enough. The food is excellent with a choice of cuisine. The staff are there to make sure your staff is perfect.
