Six Senses builds fourth Bhutan lodge using Bhutanese farmhouse architecture at 9,800ft

by Megan Whitby | 18 Oct 2019

Six Senses has opened Six Senses Gangtey, its fourth Himalayan guest lodge in Bhutan, designed by Habita Architects and built with traditional techniques and offering 180-degree views of the area's nesting cranes and the mountains and valley below.

The eight-suite lodge is part of the multi-location Six Senses Bhutan project, which is composed of five satellite lodges designed to take guests on a journey through the Kingdom of Bhutan.

Six Senses already has three lodges in Bhutan, at Paro, Thimphu and Punakha, and are set to open their fifth lodge – Bumthang – in the Himalayas in March 2020.

Six Senses Gangtey is perched 9,843ft (3,000m) above the Phobjikha valley, with a cantilevered bridge-like structure and floor-to-ceiling windows that provide guests with uninterrupted views of the nesting grounds.

Its design is inspired by Bhutanese farmhouse architecture, using local stone and hand-cut timber. The traditional building techniques, along with landscpaing by P Landscape, help the lodge to blend with its natural setting.

Interiors have been designed in-house by Six Senses, and each guest room has a private balcony with panoramic views of the valley. There is a two-bedroom villa with private spa facilities.

A shared spa has a single and a double treatment room and suites for other treatments, while the lodge also has a restaurant offering a locally-inspired culinary experience and a library and games room.
