Heavenly Bhutan

Jane Anderson, Honeymoon expert Jane's verdict
The Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan is a honeymoon for adventurers. With snow tipped ranges and blue pine-clad valleys, it’s remote, rugged and utterly riveting. Uma Paro is one of the world’s most incredible hotels, melding the work of Bhutanese artisans with clean-lined modernism. Relax by your own traditional Bukhari woodburning stove and private spa treatment area.

Regent Holidays says

The heavenly kingdom of Bhutan is the most romantic and magical of the Himalayan nations. Known as the ‘Land of the Thunder Dragon’, it is a royal kingdom landlocked by the Himalayas, which have protected it from the influences of the modern world.

  • unique experiences
  • fascinating culture
  • atmospheric lodges & hotels

Perfectly for honeymoons, Bhutan is a spiritual, enriching and unique destination. It’s the only country in the world to adopt a Gross National Happiness Index – you will more than likely come across Bhutan’s royal family walking along the streets and Himalayan village children running up to give you a warm hug. The genuine sense of wellbeing is infectious.

You can enjoy adrenaline-fuelled high altitude treks, explore local markets, take pony rides, feed monks-in-training, witness a thrilling private dance performance, partake in elaborate tea ceremonies, try out the national sport of bamboo archery and discover traditional handmade crafts created by local artisans.
