Newly opened Gangtey Goenpa Lodge is nestled in a hidden valley near an imposing 17th-century monastery, in the ancient and mystical Kingdom of Bhutan, in the eastern Himalayas. The design of this luxury boutique lodge is inspired by traditional wood and stone Bhutanese farmhouses and it offers spectacular views of the breathtaking scenery. Heated stone floors, wooden beams, exposed brick walls, rich fabrics and a colour palette of warm, earthy tones feature throughout. It is a six-hour drive from the nearest airport at Paro.
Offering impeccable service, superb attention to detail and warm hospitality, Gangtey Goenpa will appeal to adventurous couples seeking an intimate and remote escape in an enchanting setting.
This charming rural retreat provides 12 elegantly appointed and spacious suites with plush furnishings, freestanding baths and wood burning stoves. Walls are adorned with local art and carvings.
The restaurant features a delicious menu of Western, Asian and Bhutanese dishes, which are served on long, communal tables.
Go mountain biking or hiking, visit Gangtey monastery or experience the breathtaking scenery in a hot-air balloon – Gangtey Goenpa is the first to offer this experience in Bhutan. Back at the lodge, be pampered with a massage in the privacy of your room or relax with a glass of wine in front of a roaring fire.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Gangtey into a greater Bhutan holiday.
