There’s a ritual to using the traditional teakwood baths on the private terraces of the resort’s spa treatment rooms. When the hot water begins to cool, you strike a Buddhist singing bowl to alert an attendant waiting in the next room to send in stones, heated by wood fire, down a wooden ramp and into a part of the tub separated from your body by a discreet screen. In place of bubbles, the water is infused with the leaves of the potent local herb khempa, which is used in Bhutan to treat skin conditions and as a floor covering at religious ceremonies.

One of my favorite hotels on the planet. In my list, this one is probably #2 next to Amanpulo in the Philippines. An amazing retreat. The highlight here is the main building -- a lobby / library space which has massive windows and a great view of an old dzong.
The service is impeccable. The rooms are gorgeous. During our stay, our room was serviced literally every time we left it... even if we were gone for only a few minutes.
The only drawback (other than the cost) is the communal dining area. Although I'm sure you could arrange for private dining back at your room, some guests may not want to dine in a shared space.
Located a short drive from the trailhead to Tiger's Nest. Amankora is expensive but keep in mind that the rate is all inclusive.
