How to book
For off-the-beaten-track travel, nothing quite compares to Bhutan. Its dramatic snow-capped peaks and deep valleys are far from the tourist trail – and Gangtey Lodge is in the heart of this remarkable, remote region.
To make a reservation, please call our Reservation Team on +44 203 308 9528. Once our Reservation Team makes the reservation for you, they will put you in touch with Gangtey Lodge’s appointed destination specialist who will create your entire travel itinerary and support you at every stage of your trip.
Travelling to Bhutan and Gangtey Lodge
The destination specialist will apply for your Bhutan tourist visa* before you travel.
The application includes creating a complete itinerary for you. So you can expect every detail to be covered – from your Gangtey Lodge reservation and excursions to comfortable transfers throughout your trip. The journey from Paro International Airport to Gangtey Lodge takes around five hours, but you’ll need to take a gently rising route and pause along the way to acclimatise to the altitude– and the destination specialist will suggest our partner hotels and sightseeing stops to suit you.
They’ll be in touch with you directly throughout the process. So you can relax and look forward to an unforgettable adventure in Bhutan.
*The only visa-waiver exception is for guests holding passports for the South Asian Association of Regional Cooperation (SAARC).

Gangtey Lodge - Luxury Hotel in Bhutan
Himalayan hideaway with sublime views in the heart of Bhutan
A world away from the everyday, Gangtey Lodge is an all-suite outpost overlooking Bhutan’s Gangtey (Phobjikha) Valley. Surrounded by mountains and forests, the Lodge offers guests spectacular views of this unspoiled landscape. And indoors, this boutique hotel stays true to the time-honoured culture and traditions of its home country.
Aptly named ‘Farmhouse Suites’, the rooms at the Gangtey Lodge take farmhouse living to the next level. Think log fires, exposed beams and indulgent slipper baths. Modern amenities, like slate underfloor heating, add a touch of luxury without offsetting the traditional design. And, for a flavour of traditional life here, you even have the opportunity to visit a genuine Bhutanese farmhouse to experience a typical day with the family who live there.
As well as days on an authentic farm, Gangtey Lodge can arrange variety of excursions from the spiritual to the adventurous. Visit Gangtey Valley’s namesake and at certain times of year, you might be lucky enough to receive a personal blessing from the Tulku at Gangtey Monastery. Or take a guided hike through dense forest and blossoming woodland to a site offering 360° views of the Valley. Continue your cultural education back at the Lodge with a traditional Hot Stone Bath or holistic spa treatment.

The main lodge is the focal point where guests come to dine and relax in a beautiful communal area overlooking the terrace and views over the valley. Two huge fireplaces and deep leather sofas are the perfect venue for drinks and informal dining More formal private dining spaces are set further back among the painted columns that support the spectacular roof structure drawing on Bhutanese monastic design.
As well as in-suite spa treatments, Gangtey Lodge offers you the chance to experience a traditional Bhutanese Hot Stone Bath. This one-of-a-kind treatment begins with a foot scrub and de-stress massage for the ultimate relaxation therapy. Then, large river boulders are used to heat the bath and therapists add aromatic herbs from the neighbouring forest. It’s even said that the minerals released from the rocks and herbs have healing powers.
