COMO Hotels and Resorts has launched an exclusive seven-night adventure with flights to and from the Kingdom via private jet.

The ‘Luxury Himalayan Escape’ is being offered in partnership with global aircraft charter specialist Chapman Freeborn - the only private charter broker with permission to fly in and out of Bhutan

As a result the package is the only of its kind.

Chapman Freeborn is recognised worldwide as the leading provider of private air charter and is loved by VIPs for its attentive service and complete discretion.

The all-inclusive, seven-night experience begins with arrival to Bhutan’s Paro airport via private jet.

Depending on the departure point, guests are able to charter anything from a Cessna Citation light jet to a long range Gulfstream G450.

The aircrafts are available with VIP configuration, the larger varieties offering luxurious bedroom and dining areas as well as cutting-edge in-flight entertainment.

Guests will spend four nights at COMO’s Uma Paro lodge in the Paro Valley followed by three nights at Uma Punakha, further north in the Punakha Valley.

Both properties feature breathtaking mountainside locations, interiors filled with Bhutanese artisanship and COMO Shambhala Retreats for massages and other wellness treatments.

The trip features full-board accommodation at both lodges as well as six-and-a-half days of privately guided hiking and day excursions to cultural landmarks such as the Punakha Dzong and the capital, Thimphu.

All excursions will be accompanied by professional English-speaking Bhutanese guides and a personal butler at both hotels.

Whitewater rafting on the Mo Chu river, a private conversation about Buddhism with local monks, and traditional Bhutanese welcome gifts and dances are also included, as well as a Shambhala massage and a Bhutanese hot stone bath for two.

Guests can enjoy private yoga with a Shambhala expert, and on their last night, a romantic fire-lit, four-course dinner for two with champagne in the courtyard at Uma Paro.

Alex Berry, Sales and Marketing Director at Chapman Freeborn said: “As the one and only air charter specialist with permission to fly in to Bhutan, we are thrilled about this unique alliance as it provides our high-end clientele with a discreet yet hugely exclusive experience that is second-to-none.”

Norman Luxemburg, General Manager at Uma by Paro, Bhutan, added: “At COMO we pride ourselves on delivering the finest individually tailored guest experiences.

Our partnership with Chapman Freeborn on the ‘Luxury Himalayan Escape’ takes this concept to the next level, allowing guests to experience a seamless, door-to-door travel experience.”
