Delving deep into the mystical regions of Southeast Asia, Eastern Safaris delights guests with new discoveries and enriching experiences.
Eastern Safaris’ Gangtey Lodge in the Kingdom of Bhutan delivers an insightful experience in one of the world’s most mysterious and undiscovered destinations. Home to glacial valleys and dramatic mountain ranges, the Gangtey Goenpa Valley and the Lodge provide a perfect jumping-off point for Himalayan adventures – with world-class luxury to return to at day’s end.
Incredibly inviting after a day of adventures in this mystical Himalayan valley, the Gangtey Lodge offers 12 decked-out suites complete with a cozy fireplace, underfloor heating, WiFi access, handcrafted wood burners and romantic free-standing bathtubs. The hotel is a stunning blend of boutique hotel-style intimacy and royal lodge masterminded by husband and wife Brett Melzer and Khin Omar Win, as well as their brilliant designer, Mary Lou Thompson. Guests recline in plush leather sofas in front of two impressive fireplaces crafted from local stone.
With its magical setting deep in the Gangtey Valley, the Gangtey Lodge is a choice jumping-off point for adventures in the Himalayas. Guest may venture by foot or hot-air balloon to the ancient temples of Bagan and the Shan mountains, assured in the knowledge that they’ll return to abundant luxury at the lodge at day’s end.
Guests are invited to dine in a communal setting around a long dark-wood table in the central part of the lodge. Floor-to-ceiling windows boast striking views to complement the homemade Bhutanese cuisine.
The lodge is located just below the monastery in the Phobjikha Valley in the Kingdom of Bhutan. Guests arrive at and depart from the Paro Airport.
