Reconnect With Yourself at Six Senses Bhutan

The resort has a number of experiences designed to ‘reconnect’ — either with yourself, with nature or with others.

Perched at 4,600 ft with whimsical views across the Punakha Valley, Six Senses Bhutan is a remote yet intimate lodge with just 16 suites and three villas. The famed overhanging all-day restaurant appears to float over an infinity pool with cascading paddy fields below, earning it the name ‘flying farmhouse amidst the rice fields.’ As with all Six Senses hotels, there’s a strong sustainability ethos — even more important here, as Bhutan is the world’s only carbon-negative country. The resort has a number of experiences designed to ‘reconnect’ — either with yourself, with nature or with others. Across the valley is the Chorten Ningpo Monastery, an ancient temple that dates back to the 16th century. See traditional farmhouses as you hike through the rice paddies, up through a peaceful forest to the monastery above the clouds. Meet with the youngest resident monks for a traditional vegetarian breakfast, and learn about their daily life. Back at the hotel, you’ll take part in a mandala offering ceremony: Mandala offerings are a type of purification ceremony often performed by Tibetan Buddhists to prepare for meditation. The ceremony is meant to bring inner transformation, focus the mind and clear negative energy.

Best for: Spirituality and witnessing a different way of life
