Uma Punakha has to be one of the best locations for a hotel that I've stayed in, anywhere in the world. The rooms all have breathtaking views. The interiors are elegant, classy and warm. The service was fabulous and loved the dining experience. I also enjoyed immensely the interaction on Buddhism with a holy teacher/monk. A dream of a hotel.

The Uma Punakha is gorgeous. It sits on a hill above a rushing glacial-fed river, and overlooks terraces of rice and corn that climb up the hills. The rooms are very well appointed, the staff is excellent and the food was superb. They upgraded us to a suite on our first night, which gave us our own balcony to view...

From the first welcome by the lodge manager Jessie to the end it was like a home from home. Phenomenal views for breakfast from the outside terrace over the Valley.

We stayed at the COMO Uma Punakha (and COMO Uma Paro) in Bhutan as part of our honeymoon in August/September 2016. First, both locations are absolutely stunning. The views are so beautiful, it's difficult to really explain just how dramatic they are. The hotels have very obviously been designed with every single detail having been thought through.

The hotel is of a small size but just perfect in terms of location and view, architecture and has a very intime atmosphere. Food is exceptional especially the breakfast . By far our best experience in Buthan and even during our last trips in Asia !
