Bumthang, Bhutan

Since it opened in 2004, this chain of five luxury lodges has set new standards in Himalayan hospitality. Laid out at strategic points on a circuit through the central and western valleys, each is a masterpiece of fusion architecture, blending cutting edge contemporary design (by Australian architect Kerry Hill) with traditional elements such as rammed-earth, limewashed walls, wood-panelled interiors and vegetable-dyed Buddhist murals. The overall effect is as heavenly as the landscape, which you can savour through the floor-to-ceiling picture windows, while soaking in a teakwood tub infused with forest herbs. Bukhari stoves crackle cosily in the rooms, which are styled in earthy colours. Should you tire of lazing around, try out one of Aman’s signature experiences: poppy treks, archery lessons, or guided trout fishing.
