Uma Paro offers 5-star comfort and a unique style in the wildly beautiful Himalayan region of Bhutan. Located on a hilltop, the hotel overlooks the town of Paro, one of the main cultural centres of Bhutan and home to the country's international airport.
The twenty rooms and nine villas surrounded by pine forests are all spacious and well-equipped and feature intricate Bhutanese detailing combined perfectly with a sharp, contemporary style. The excellent spa and heated indoor swimming pool offer a welcome rest after a busy day's sightseeing.
why we like como uma paro
A destination in itself, many are reluctant to leave the comfort of Como Uma Paro. Cool, stylish and utterly indulgent.
Uma Paro features nine private villas and 20 rooms nestled in the Paro Valley. Particularly suitable for families searching comfort is the two bedroomed Como Villa or take a Como Suite and interconnect with a Valley View Room to make a relaxing family stay.
During a stay at Como Uma Paro, visit the Bukhari restaurant, a restaurant of choice for Bhutan's royal family. Try the country's traditional dish using the local red chilli stewed in melted cheese, known as "ema datshi". This Bhutanese dish stews juicy red chillies with onion, garlic, and cheese for a spicy, warming meal. The organic kitchen garden, alongside local farmers from Paro Valley, ensure there is always a bounty of fresh ingredients on the menu daily. Opt for an al fresco barbeque dinner held amongst the pine trees and colourful prayer flags.
Wellness plays an important part and is well delivered, as always, by Como Shambhala. Pamper yourself with a Bhutanese hot stone bath, warm up in the steam room after a long trek, or stretch the muscles with a few lengths of the indoor pool.
