Share is care...Tweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on LinkedInShare on Google+Share on Facebook

Udumwara in sanskrit means “an auspicious flower from heaven”, which is said to blossom once every 3,000 years. The appearance of Udumwara blossoms is a sign of the arrival of the Holy King who turns the wheel, rectifying the Dharma in the world.

Volume 8 of the Buddhist scripture “Huilin Phonetics and Interpretation” writes: “The Udumwara flower is the product of propitious and supernatural phenomena; it is a celestial flower and does not exist in the mundane world. If a Tathagata or the King of the Golden Wheel appears in the human world, this flower will appear due to his great virtue and blessings.”

Description

Udumwara in sanskrit means “an auspicious flower from heaven”, which is said to blossom once every 3,000 years. The appearance of Udumwara blossoms is a sign of the arrival of the Holy King who turns the wheel, rectifying the Dharma in the world.

Volume 8 of the Buddhist scripture “Huilin Phonetics and Interpretation” writes: “The Udumwara flower is the product of propitious and supernatural phenomena; it is a celestial flower and does not exist in the mundane world. If a Tathagata or the King of the Golden Wheel appears in the human world, this flower will appear due to his great virtue and blessings.”

Buddhist scriptures also recorded that the Holy King Who Turns the Wheel is an ideal king who will rule the world not through force but through justice. Regardless of one’s religious affiliation—Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, and so on—anyone who offers compassion to others will have the opportunity to meet the Holy King Who Turns the Wheel.

“The fragrance of Drukyul” as the slogan reads, holds true for the Udumwara flower and so does for Udumwara Resort, located amidst the raw natural beauty with a true Bhutanese touch of warm hospitality. A 15 minutes drive from the airport, the resort is built on a smooth but gradually rising valley.

A huge enchanting Chukhor, a water run prayer wheel, gracefully built in front of the resort and a lord Buddha sitting on the lotus along with the lord of the four directions greets you as you enter the premises which will immediately captivate your imagination.

The resort has10 rooms at the main block and 5 cozy villas with 4 rooms in each villa, which are all deluxe twin bedded rooms decorated in a traditional style with modern facilities like security boxes, TV and free wireless internet connection. Pakshing Bar made wholly of bamboo which serves only local drinks and a handicraft shop with all the antiques on display just next to the bar in the main block will surely mesmerize you. There is also a huge conference hall which can accommodate about 40-50 people depending on the seating layout.

With an aquarium counter is the Nyeltsho restaurant/bar just about 70 meters away from the main block. Ideal for short hikes and rock climbing, a small mountain rests behind the resort in a comforting manner overlooking the valley with the Pachhu flowing tenderly below it.

To add on to the existing natural beauty of the resort, a traditional bridge is constructed which passes over a small brook. The resort is a blend of traditional look with a touch of modern architecture. For this matter, Udumwara Resort can undoubtedly be called the visual summary of ancient Bhutan.

Hospitality is not just our priority but religion that runs through the veins of every Bhutanese. With truly professional people, we at Udumwara believe in making you a part of our family and not just provide accommodations. We promise you a souvenir of sweet memories woven with the emotions of a true Bhutanese.

Overlooking the Pachhu river a two storied entertainment centre will be constructed with heating system swimming pool, spa therapies, steam and sauna, jacuzzi, and a well equipped gymnasium.

The restaurant would also specialize in serving meat products, where they can barbeque it themselves and have it with their desired drinks. So on a clear starry night, one cannot miss such an opportunity of spending an exclusive evening with your family, friends or your loved ones.

in-house restaurant, will offer our guests a variety of multi-cuisines, not to forget our very own Bhutanese cuisine to relish upon.
