COMO Uma Bhutan takes guests to the heart of the ethereal Himalayan Kingdom, an all-Buddhist country bordering China and India. It consists of two award-winning lodges, COMO Uma Punakha and COMO Uma Paro, voted the best and second best hotel in Asia by Condé Nast Traveler, respectively, which can be combined into a resort experience that will take you to the heart of this incredible country.
COMO Uma Paro, located on the cusp of the Paro Valley, has breathtaking views of pristine mountains and pine-covered slopes from its 38-acre estate of 20 rooms and nine villas. The lodge serves Bhutanese and Western dishes, composed around locally available seasonal produce in the Bukhari Restaurant, named after the traditional 'bukhari' fire. The restaurant also offers COMO Shambhala Cuisine-healthy dishes rich in living enzymes, vitamins and minerals.

Archery is the national sport of Bhutan. With archery lessons, you can learn the rules and how to hold the bow properly. For experienced archers, equipment can be rented free of charge from the resort for sessions at your convenience. Darts are another popular pastime in Bhutan, with a scoring system that is different from Western tradition and a low target on the ground. Both sports are a fun way to spend an afternoon, enjoying a bit of healthy competition with your family.
