Uma Paro, Bhutan
This Himalayan retreat doesn't rely on puny man-made structures for its elevation. Nature has done a fine job on its own. As you sit in the restaurant tucked into a pine-clad hill overlooking the lush Paro valley, you quickly see why the tiny kingdom of Bhutan has been rated one of the happiest countries in the world. Suitably for an Asian country, the cuisine packs a hefty spicy punch, but gentler western dishes are available for people with a low chilli threshold.
