Singapore’s most exclusive and revered wellness centre Como Shambhala Urban Escape will be having two six-night, seven-day (from 11-17 June and 18-24 June) yoga retreats in Bhutan hosted by instructors – and brains behind Space & Light Yoga – Lynn Yeo and Sumei Shum. If you’re up for a relaxing (and luxe) getaway to restore and your mind and body, then you seriously have to check this out.
Located in the Eastern Himalayas, Bhutan offers rich culture with picturesque views of majestic mountains, an ideal place for all yoga lovers. The best part? You’ll be spending your nights at two luxurious resorts – two nights in the intimate 12-room Como Uma Punakha lodge and four nights in Como Uma Paro resort.
Como Uma Punakha
As the second hotel to open in Bhutan, Como Uma Punakha is an intimate, luxury lodge nestled in the far western end of the lush Punakha Valley so expect breathtaking views overlooking the Mo Chu river for ultimate serenity and tranquillity.
What we love: the resort’s blend of modern and traditional designs that still manages to retain a chic and sophisticated appeal. Decked with wooden furniture and decorated with paintings by local artisans, we just can’t get over the stylish interior and sweeping views of the Phunaka valley.
Como Uma Paro
This 29-room resort features nine exclusive private villas in Bhutan – how about that for a luxurious stay? The rooms come with colourful accents of traditional Bhutanese craftsmanship combined with Como’s signature contemporary design. But what we’re seriously loving about this resort? Their uber huge suites and villas that encompass a residential feel for a cosy and relaxed stay. The villas also feature an outdoor stone bath and an open-air fire pit in the courtyard – what’s not to love?
Besides the luxurious resorts offered, the entire package includes a week of nutritious foods, holistic therapies, yoga sessions and the fun part: a chance to explore the beauty of this tranquil nation – and by that we mean excursions. The tour will bring you to places of national and religious significance such as the famous Tiger’s Nest monastery and Kyichu Lhakhang, one of the oldest temples in Bhutan for an insightful and wholesome experience.
From breakfast to lunch and even dinner, all meals will be included in the package. The wholesome meals served at COMO Uma’s Bhutan hotels uses ingredients with very specific nutritional purposes to help boost concentration, energy and digestion while also balancing blood-sugar levels so you know your trip will be a pleasant and enriching one.
The package is priced at US$4,380 (S$6,104) per person, based on twin sharing.
