Five distinct lodges offer a circuit of Himalayan sanctuaries, inviting you to embark on a multi-destination itinerary with the opportunity to experience the Kingdom of Bhutan’s remarkable landscape and rich cultural heritage.

Between March and May, the season of renewal sees Bhutan at its most beautiful as the Himalayan landscape comes alive with colour.

At night, the library can transform into a screening room, with a selection of family films on offer – accompanied by popcorn and cookies. This year, Amanoi’s residency programme draws an international roster of holistic health experts and wellbeing practitioners who curate limited-edition retreats and experiences.
