BHUTAN-Uma Paro Bhutan 5*

Bhutan, or ‘Druk Yul’, is a small Himalayan Kingdom tucked between India and China.  This spit of land, only 306 kilometres across and 145 kilometres deep, has maintained a fierce independence from the twin giants that surround it.  Deep within the eastern extreme of the Himalayas, Bhutan has a vibrant and stately Buddhist culture that has survived relatively unscathed by modern life.  The mountainous topography has helped repel invaders, keeping Bhutan a nation that is culturally intact.  One Bhutanese reporter has described it as the ‘Mountain fortress of the Gods’. Because of its size (just 38,400 square kilometres) and the fact that it is landlocked, Bhutan has been dubbed the ‘Switzerland of Asia’.  The Himalayan mountains in the north of the country contain the highest unclimbed peak in the world, Gangkhar Puensum.

Uma by COMO, Paro is an intimate, rural hotel in Bhutan, a landlocked Himalayan Kingdom where religion and nature have come together in a compelling Buddhist culture. This has given rise to names for Bhutan such as ‘hidden treasure’ or ‘the last Shangri-La’.

Uma by COMO, Paro, is an intimate, 29-room resort featuring the most exclusive private villas in Bhutan with an enviable location in the Paro Valley. This puts you within striking distance of the country’s great cultural landmarks. The style combines local artisanship with COMO’s contemporary style, while activities range from yoga to Himalayan camping adventures. Uma Paro Bukhari restaurant is a royal favourite!

A stay at Uma Paro is about discovering the essence of Bhutan—its culture, religion and landscape.  Designed to give unparalleled access to the country while simplifying logistics, offer guides and guided adventures to allow guests to explore Bhutan by foot, bike or 4WD. Uma by COMO, Paro, has been recognised as an award-winning Bhutan hotel including many Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Awards .
