Bhutan’s enchanting kingdom is soon home to an extraordinary river lodge that promises an unparalleled luxury experience like no other. Welcome to &BEYOND Punakha River Lodge, set to open its doors on 1st September 2023 in the serene Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan.

Nestled in the lush green Punakha Valley, &BEYOND Punakha River Lodge boasts an idyllic location along the tranquil Mo Chu River. This splendid lodge offers a selection of six intimate luxury tents, a one-bedroom suite (the River Suite), and a two-bedroom suite (the Family Suite), all perfectly complemented by vast expanses of lush paddy fields and densely forested hills.

Crafted with intricate attention to detail, the lodge features traditional Bhutanese architectural style, blending seamlessly with the surrounding landscape. This marks &BEYOND’s debut luxury lodge in the magnificent kingdom of Bhutan. 

The Punakha valley, renowned for its rice and chilli farms, is home not only to the mesmerising Punakha Dzong, one of Bhutan’s oldest and most captivating traditional structures, but also serves as the royal family’s winter residence. This picturesque valley is an adventurer’s paradise, offering a plethora of exhilarating activities such as rafting, kayaking, and a variety of hikes and treks amidst breathtaking surroundings.

The lodge offers a range of indulgent treatments and wellness therapies for those seeking rejuvenation. Find serenity in the lodge’s spa, beautifully situated in an orange orchard near a serene perennial stream. Engage in gentle yoga sessions or pamper yourself with a traditional Bhutanese hot stone bath, an unmissable experience to soothe the soul.

The &BEYOND Punakha River Lodge promises an immersive luxury experience in every sense. Embrace the solitude and awe-inspiring vistas. Enjoy delightful and intimate lunches amidst the paddy fields, relish sundowners on the suspension bridge adorned with prayer flags, and savour delectable traditional cuisine, a fusion of Indian, Tibetan, and Chinese influences.

In addition to its exceptional setting and luxurious accommodation, &BEYOND Punakha River Lodge offers a range of experiences to delight every traveller. Embark on an early-morning adventure to the Khamsum Yuelley Namgyal Chorten, reachable by a 45-minute hike along the river. Explore the famed Punakha Dzong and the Sangchhen Dorji Lhuendrup Lhakhang Nunnery, adding cultural depth to your journey.

Your stay at &BEYOND Punakha River Lodge promises a symphony of serenity, adventure, and refined indulgence.
