The ancient Kingdom of Bhutan to this day remains one of the worlds most mysterious and undiscovered destinations in the world. Nestled high in the eastern Himalayas, Bhutan still maintains its incredible natural beauty and traditional ways of life. Gangtey Goenpa Lodge will offer visitors a unique and exciting insight into the beautiful Gangte Valley. The lodge, with its spectacular setting and sweeping views over the whole valley, will act as a luxurious base and jumping off point for a series of half and full day adventures and excursions. One of the highlights during the spring and autumn months will be the world’s highest commercial balloon flight for a spectacular early morning Himalayan experience.
Gangtey Goenpa Lodge will offer a luxurious and interactive experience in the Gangte Valley when it opens its doors for a soft launch in November 2013.
The Lodge draws upon the inspiration of the unique and beautiful Bhutanese rural architecture down to the very last detail. Designed by Mary Lou Thomson, who has worked on some of the world’s most prestigious resort projects, the interiors and furnishings showcase aspects of the vibrant local culture.
The focal point of the lodge will be an informal lounge and dining space with wall to ceiling views of the valley below. Plush leather sofas and rich fabrics will invite guests to share the day’s adventures around two impressive fireplaces encased in local stone. The twelve beautifully appointed guestrooms, each with their own cozy fireplace, will reflect the rich cultural heritage with warm fabrics and earthen tones.
