Opened in 2012, Uma by COMO, Punakha is located at the western end of the lush Puhakha Valley (1,300m) in Central Bhutan, about 5hrs car drive from Paro Internatioanal Airport (PAH). This is a sister property to Uma Paro located close to the Bhutan’s only international airport
Uma by COMO, Punakha is an intimate, luxury lodge ideal as a base to explore the central and eastern valleys and historic sites of Bhutan including the famous Temple of the Divine Madman and the imposing Punakha Dzong. The valley is the lowest and therefore the lushest of the valleys which can be relatively easily accessed by visitors to Bhutan.
Uma Punakha offers Valley View rooms (with and without terrace) and two free-standing luxury private villas (one One-Bedroom Villa and one two-bedroom COMO Villa).
Bukhari restaurant serves both local and international cuisine based on locally sourced produce.
COMO Shambhala Retreat Spa, located in a separate building, offers traditional holistic therapies.
5hrs car drive from Paro International airport (PAH)
