Join ESCAPE TO SHAPE on a most magical journey to the enchanting Kingdom of Bhutan. Experience the vibrant colors, the sweet sounds of chanting & nature and the overwhelming sense of peacefulness that permeates this spectacular region If you are ready to be transported to a land of highlands & prayer flags, monasteries & markets, mountains & magic then the ethereal Kingdom of Bhutan is indeed for you!
We have put together a unique, bespoke itinerary that combines A LOT of hiking, culture and relaxation as we journey deep into the Kingdom’s heartland exploring three distinctly different but important valleys; the bustling capital of Thimphu in a valley dotted with monuments, museums and markets; the almost tropical Punakha valley with its magnificent Dzongs; and the emerald valley of Paro with its rice paddies and ancient temples. Throughout our adventure we return nightly to the simple luxury and comfort of our Uma suites.
Uma by COMO, Paro and Uma by COMO, Punakha will serve as our intimate accommodations in Bhutan, a landlocked Himalayan Kingdom where religion and nature have come together in a compelling Buddhist culture. Both properties are instilled with the same principles, for Uma means ‘living house’ and both are inspired by the landscape, spirituality and culture of the special region, heavily steeped in the traditions that surround them. They serve as the ideal locations—among pine-clad valleys, lush vegetation, rushing rivers and snow-capped mountains—for those to whom the joy of discovery is reason enough for a journey.
Please note that due to the size of the properties (169 rooms at the Metropolitan Bangkok & 29 rooms at Uma by COMO, Paro), we will not have exclusive use of Metropolitan Bangkok by COMO or Uma by COMO, Paro, rather, we will be sharing them with other discerning travelers. We will have exclusive private use of Uma by COMO, Punakha.
Share: $9200 per person. If traveling solo we can pair you with a roommate if traveling solo.
Private: $11,200 for a private room

A FEW IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE:

She is largely inspired by the journey of yoga, the subtle to the grand discoveries each individual makes through their practice, inviting students to have fun while experiencing their body in a whole new way through each unique practice. With classes always set to music, from tribal, to lounge to classic rock songs, students are able to find their own personal rhythm and expression through each asana. Additionally, Erica contributes to AFAR, Huffington Post, Livetheprocess.com, Charlottesbook.com and has created time efficient and results driven workouts and fitness tips for publications such as Health, Self, Shape, Fitness, The New York Post, Newsday as well as Red, The London Times, Daily Star, The Sunday Express and Healthy in the United Kingdom.
