For the whole family

Bhutan’s untamed wilderness and magnificent culture is a truly life-changing experience for all the family to enjoy. Opportunities to play, learn and grow together in this unique Kingdom will leave a profound and lasting impact on the entire family for years to come.

A family journey is a great shared adventure and a chance to unplug from our individual digital worlds. Whether learning how to identify different birds and trees in our forests, to cultural hikes to a nearby farmhouse to make homemade cheese and butter, coming to Bhutan is a unique experience. Children’s eyes are opened to a completely different world and filled with experiences they could never have at home.

Families who show a particular interest in community initiatives and education may enjoy visiting local schools. This is another opportunity for parents to expose their children to the realities of life outside their comfort zone while planting the seeds of awareness and understanding about other cultures. Finally, celebrate the day over dinner, with the opportunity for our youngest to lend a hand in the kitchen, before recounting the day’s adventures around the fireplace.

All activities at the lodge are tailored to specifically suit the interests of each family. For those precious moments of downtime, we offer child-minding services, as well as an array of activities to keep little ones engaged and entertained.

Highly Recommended

I loved: *the warm welcome/goodbye from staff the moment I arrived/left, and their friendly service throughout my stay - a special thank you to the general manager David, the chef Adrian, the F&B manager Sonam and his team, for taking care of me while I experienced elevation sickness; *the special meditation session with the general manager David and his friend, a monk from the nearby Shedra; *my big room with its comfortable bed, bathtub overlooking the valley, wood fireplace and lounge area - a special thank you to the housekeeping team for always ensuring that my room was clean, cozy and charming throughout my stay; *the hot bath and massage, particularly the free five-minute massage when I arrived; *the breakfasts and dinners at the main dining room, and the snack given when I left; *the quaint library and games, particularly free archery whenever you like; *the free laundry offered, snacks in-room, ginger tea and stoked fireplace whenever I wanted.
I immensely enjoyed my short two-night stay at Gangtey Lodge - a memorable, special and elegant place.

This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed at.
The location is unbelievable and breath taking.
The food is sooooo yummy but still very healthy.
The massages are excellent.
The director made sure himself, that my health is getting better again.
It is unfortunate, that is so far from my home (Switzerland).
Otherwise I would come more frequently.
But I will for sure come back anyway.
The perfect place.

Genuine and Wonderful

I can’t express how lovely my stay at Gangtey was. The entire staff is the most genuine, wonderful group of individuals in Bhutan. The hot stone bath was absolutely divine. I loved visiting the temple for the meditation and evening prayers with monks. This was other-worldly. The bathtub in the room is also fantastic. I cannot recommend this hotel enough!
