COMO Uma Punakha is our second hotel in Bhutan after COMO Uma Paro. Positioned on a river bend in the Punakha Valley - one of Bhutan's key destinations - COMO Uma Punakha delivers soul-stirring views from its eight light-filled rooms. Two villas - an intimate one-bedroom villa and a family-friendly two-bedroom COMO Villa - provide more luxury in the wilderness, alongside our restaurant and COMO Shambhala spa.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

At every turn, we were impressed with Uma Punakha - from the warm and friendly greetings from every staff member to the spectacular views to the tastefully appointed decor to the delicious (and abundant) meals to the relaxing massage. I could go on and on. We felt so well taken care of. We are avid travelers and Uma Punakha stands out as one of the finest places we've ever stayed. Kudos to all on the staff for their top-notch service.

Lodge Manager Tipsuda and all of her magical staff made us feel like royalty right from the first hello. This property is intimate with the most personalized attention and breathtaking views of the valley and rivers.
The food and patio views were amazing, but they were beat by the service of the staff. After sipping some fireplace cocktails in the relaxing lobby, they suggested the views outside were beautiful to eat and relax enjoying - it was December, so they started the outdoor fire pit, brought heaters and lap blankets - and we had a toasty warm magical dinner under the stars that I won't forget!
We felt so welcomed and well cared for every second. Sad to say goodbye to everyone - wish we could have stayed longer!

The word “speechless” cannot even describe what I felt when I arrived in this beautiful lodge. Although the lodge is small with only 11 rooms, I can say this is one of my top 5 best hotels that I’ve ever been to! I even stared at the view from my room for God knows how long just because I could not stop appreciating it. I recommend going here during the Fall or Winter season to get the feel even more. I’m very lucky that I got to spend my birthday in COMO Uma Punakha. The staff were kind and warm, truly a home away from home.

I requested less activity during my stay just so that I could enjoy the lodge more. It’s so calm and peaceful, I feel connected with myself. This is truly a destination worth visiting. The air, the food, everything is fresh. It’s like earth 50 years ago. I recommend you to try this one yourself to see wether I’m exaggerating it or not. I promise you will feel the same way I do, everyone who stays in this hotel does.. I recommend going there with a trusted travel agent as Bhutan is not an easy country to explore by yourself. I went with TravelPlus (@travelplus_world on Instagram). They took detailed care of everything, they made life easier for sure haha They also have a famous tailor-made holiday service, you should definitely check them out!

From the moment my wife and I were warmly and kindly greeted at Uma Punakha, we knew this would be a special spot. It was only when we were led into our room that the spectacular vistas unfolded. It was an OMG moment as the views at Uma Punakha are unrivalled. The staff connect personally with each guest and mealtime is like being served on a cloud with a continuous array of temptations. Whoever has trained the staff has done an excellent job and we were happy to be the beneficiaries. How can we not come back and encourage our friends to step into such a full Shangri-La experience? Bhutan and the Uma Punakha and Uma Paro hotels are must additions to you itineraries.

A beautiful hotel/lodge overlooking the river and valley below. The room was superb and exceptionally comfortable. The food in the restaurant (breakfasts and dinner) was 5* delicious.
The welcome on arrival from the staff, who are all very well trained, added to our delightful experience during our brief 2-night stay.
The Spa services, provided by very professional masseuses, were about the best I have ever experienced, essential after a hard day’s trekking. I hope I can visit again!!

Bhutan hotel offers the best of both worlds, great service plus located in a totally prestine environment.
Outdoor dining can be requested. Watch the clouds floats by as you sip your cup of tea. Star gazing is easy here as light pollution is low.

We had a wonderful time at Como Uno Punakha. Spacious and well-appointed and well maintained rooms. The two outstanding features of this hotel was the food, among the best quality food we have had in Bhutan, and the service of the staff with a special call out to our butler Sonam, who was always thinking ahead preparing everything perfectly for our excursions and in close dialogue with our guide to make sure we had sufficient drinks and snacks for the day. We loved our stay here.

A well located property with cosy rooms and views of the river and farmlands. Personalised and warm service at all levels, including housekeeping and F&B. The manager’s smile was infectious whenever we ran into her. We looked forward to returning for our meals every evening after a day spent exploring the Punakha valley. The food was fresh, wholesome and simply delicious. Will definitely stay again if we have the good fortune to return to Bhutan.

A wonderful one night stay after a very busy week. Wish we had stayed on extra night to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and the tranquility of this beautiful hotel. Pictures don’t capture its beauty. The people that worked there were so attentive, kind, and always had a smile. The food at their restaurant was amazing.

Gosh, where to begin.
This beautifully situated, stunning hotel looks over the valley. Our room had breath taking views, was spotless, comfortable, well serviced.
The dining are is spacious and the lounge area too, all well decorated and huge windows to enjoy the view.
I had my birthday here and was so spoilt by the staff, down to decorating my bed to cake and song.
The staff here are gentle, compassionate souls. They exceeded all my expectations. Their generosity of spirit was humbling and I would so like to thank them.
Dont hesitate to book here, its mind blowingly good.
