"Beyond just value for money, a feeling of freedom...

My stay at BHUTAN SPIRIT Sanctuary is amazing. Everything I need, and even things I did not realize I needed, is there. And because they are well-being inclusive* I do not have to make any choices, I can just enjoy. I get guided meditation in the morning and in the afternoon try my hand at pottery in their art studio. Where have I experienced this before? I can't remember.

Every day I receive a massage and discover one of their special other traditional medicine treatments. The moment I enter their wellness area I feel a sense of peace and tranquility coming over me – my body and mind seem more connected. In the evening I attend a special talk by a local scholar on Gross National Happiness in the cozy library space. I have so many questions, and throughout the night together with the other guests we try to find answers to all of them.”

This is a fully new concept in Bhutan, and although I was excited to try it out, I did not know what to expect. Now though, I have seen how my guests really like it and I feel connected to the vision of the Sanctuary.

My work is my art. I do not use fixed menus, instead I like to surprise our guests on a daily basis with both local dishes as well as a variety of fusion ones. When a guest has dietary restrictions, I see it as a nice challenge to make them feel they have no restrictions at all.
