A scluded oasis of beauty and tranquility
History & culture
At this exclusive hotel, local Tibetan culture permeates the entire resort. Thirty two spacious lodges and suites have been converted from traditional farmhouses, retaining Tibetan design with beautiful wood carvings and pine pillars with wooden balconies overlooking the river or lush valley down below.
Relish the experience of being close to nature on daily treks into the mountains followed by pampering spa treatments either at the Banyan Tree Spa or by staying at the Tibetan Spa Suite with luxury wooden bathtub and private treatment room.
Satisfy your tastebuds with the culinary delights of Yunnan at the Chang Sa and Llamo restaurants accompanied by Chinese rice wines.
Make the most of the seasonal cultural discoveries on offer from an excursion through the rustic landscape of the nearby Tibetan Naxi and Yi villages to Baishuitai or the White Water Terraces to marvel at the 'paddy fields created by fairies,' according to folklore.
We like: The charm of local Tibetan culture shining throughout the resort.
Best for: A getaway into nature with lashings of Tibetan culture.
