The experience

Start the day enriching the spirit with morning prayers and blessing at the Gangteng Monastery. Step outside for rejuvenating hiking trails and mountain biking past the neighbouring farmhouses and beyond. Learn to make cheese with the locals and experience archery, yoga and meditation at the lodge. Bird watching takes new heights with the arrival of the Black-necked Cranes that arrive on mass from Tibet each October and discover more about the Bhutanese culture at the colourful festivals hosted throughout the year.

the spa

Gangtey Lodge offers a selection of treatments within your private suite. Unwind with an irresistible Hot Stone Bath House with aromatic herbs to unwind in total privacy among the floating petals and dreamy views washed down with a delicious glass of sparkling wine. River stones are heated by bonfire, then dropped directly into the spring water, releasing the natural minerals and creating a soul-warming experience.


Al fresco breakfasts out on the terrace and dinners in a restaurant with floor to ceiling windows, framed by dark wooden beams and large stone fireplaces. The restaurant showcases delicious Bhutanese dishes, as well as modern international fusions. Memorable private dining experiences can be arranged, from secret picnics with 360-degree views away from the world and breakfast in the grounds of the 16th century Gangtey Goenpa.

the location

Set in Bhutan’s fourth valley, the high altitudes and wide ‘U’ shaped curve in the Himalayas provides a unique landscape. The Gangtey (Phobjikha) Valley is a protected reserve and benefits from a more remote, natural setting. Monasteries, farmhouses and villages are on the doorstep with plenty of opportunities to connect and learn from the Bhutanese about their inspiring philosophy on life.
