Six Senses has opened its fourth Himalayan guest lodge in Bhutan, Six Senses Gangtey, named the “Traditional Bird Watching Bridge”.

This eight suite lodge is part of a multi-location project – Six Senses Bhutan– 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.

The lodge is perched 3,000 meters about the Phobjikha valley, with a cantilevered bridge-like structure and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Each guest room has a private balcony with 180-degree panoramic views of the valley.

During October this area of Bhutan is the nesting area of black-necked cranes and guests have uninterrupted views of their nesting grounds.

As the only carbon negative country in the world, Bhutan is a fitting destination for Six Senses because of the group’s commitment to sustainability.

The group has included a hybrid of hiking and plastic collection into its resorts, named ‘pliking’, where rubbish is collected throughout walking trails and hikes.

The Gangtey destination is home to a spa, with one single and double treatment room and two suites for swedana – an Ayurvedic treatment which uses herbal steam to release toxins from the body.

Subtle Energies, the Australian Ayurvedic aromatherapy brand, has been chosen as product house for the spa, which offers guests a range of massages and swedana treatments.

Every treatment begins with a ritual, where guests use a sodalite crystal to foster calmness and set positive intentions, while breathing and meditating. This is followed by Bhutanese chanting and singing bowls, promoting stillness, happiness and wellbeing.

Additional activities include nature treks, mountain biking, private astrology readings and butter lamp lighting ceremonies.

Guests can dine at the lodge’s signature restaurant, Baa Zam, which offers a locally-inspired culinary experience.
