Six Senses


In Bhutan, the Six Senses is distributed between five lodges in Thimphu, Punakha, Gangtey, Bumthang and Paro. Each has a unique character, and all embrace the philosophy of mindful eating, sleep and self-discovery. Visit one, or any combination, and immerse yourself in Bhutan’s spirituality, heritage and hospitality. A combination of massage and relaxation therapies, yoga and meditation programmes as well as fitness facilities that include heated pools, gyms, hot stone baths and a sauna are available. Take for instance, the traditional Dotsho (hot stone bath), considered a ‘must experience’ when visiting Bhutan. Mineral-rich stones from river beds are heated for several hours and added gradually into the water in a traditional stone bath. Heating the water in increments allows the body to adjust to the changes in temperature, and helps with muscle pain and joint stiffness. Price $105 (around `8,745). Stay at Six Senses Bhutan starts at `1.75 lakh per night approx, including taxes.
