Eastern Bhutan, with its pristine landscapes and well-preserved Buddhist temples, has had little in the way of stylish retreats. Enter the newest offering by Como hotels in the untouched Punakha Valley. The sleek sister property to western Bhutan’s Uma by Como, Paro is a welcome haven between long treks through the Himalayas: nine guest rooms designed by Malaysian-born Cheong Yew Kuan (also behind the Como Shambhala Estate, in Bali) are clad in native blue pine, while floor-to-ceiling windows overlook rolling green hills. A breakfast of ginger-and-lime muffins with house-made watermelon jam fortified us for a trip to Punakha Dzong Monastery—one of the country’s most important sites—just a 25-minute hike away along the valley’s lush rim.
