Bhutan’s sense of peace is one of the country’s most compelling characteristics. In recognition, Uma Paro has developed a substantial COMO Shambhala Retreat, designed for guests seeking greater health COMO Hotels and Resorts Page 7 of 13 through yoga and Asian-inspired treatments.
There is a yoga room overlooking the Paro Valley that can be opened up to catch mountain breezes, an indoor pool with outdoor sundeck and gym. In the pine forest, find a 90 sq-metre hot stone bath house, which includes two private massage rooms for couples. Therapies range from specific body treatments to facials and sophisticated massages, including the COMO Shambhala signature massage, delivered by experienced practitioners who customise treatments according to individual needs. There is a particular emphasis on Ayurveda, the ancient Indian tradition of healing drawn from the 3,000-year-old Vedic culture. It aims to restore the body to its natural state of equilibrium by rectifying imbalances in the three doshas – vatta, pitta, and kapha – that make up our bodily constitution. Yoga tuition is available for all levels. In addition, guests can partake in dedicated Yoga Weeks led by internationally acclaimed teachers. Guests can also combine various outdoor activities with holistic therapies at COMO Shambhala Retreat.

Rooms & Services
Our villas at Uma by COMO, Paro are entirely private, with soul-stirring views of forest, mountains and the surrounding valley. Each one occupies its own glade planted with azaleas, rhododendrons, camellias and hydrangeas.
Built of handcrafted stone, wood and tiles, the villas feel at once Bhutanese and luxurious with wood furniture vividly painted with flowers by local artists. Indian cotton bedcovers have hand-stitched patterns paying homage to Bhutan’s Buddhist culture and colours, and hand-knotted rugs come from nearby Nepal.
The result is a luxury resort with a fresh, original look that feels sleek even as it recognises Uma Paro’s cultural context.
At Uma by COMO, Paro, you can immerse yourself in the traditional flavours of Bhutan–whether you are staying with us or seeking authentic Bhutanese cuisine at one of the finest restaurants in the country.
Much of our produce comes from our own organic kitchen garden, which we maintain in partnership with local farmers from the Paro Valley, affording us a bounty of fresh and vital ingredients. Our international dishes, too, are well regarded—Bhutan’s royal family regularly make this their Paro restaurant of choice—along with specialties from neighbouring India.
Our healthy and much-loved COMO Shambhala Cuisine is for those who like lighter, nutritionally rich menus. There is also a special kids’ offering for younger palates. For quiet nights of total privacy, the resort offers in-villa and in-room dining until 10.30pm.
