Details of the Company:
Banyan Tree Ringha is located 3,200 metres above sea level in a cocooned climate of eternally alpine air and rests just 45 minutes from Diqing Shangrila Airport. Guests can step into the heart of Yunnan, China and be swept away into the untainted nature of a region that remains one of the world’s most secluded hideaways. The charm and design of traditional Tibetan 32 cottages, vistas of rich forest thrumming with luxuriant plant and animal life, a private terrace and high handcrafted wooden hot bathtub awaken your spirit in this beautiful Shangrila. Spanning 175 square metres over two levels to include a living area, rustic fireplace, bedroom decorated in dreamlike colours and raw stone steps, the Tibetan Suite whispers hushed respite through the clamour of daily life. Guests can relax at the spa centre or make use of the business centre. Luggage storage and currency exchange can be found at the 24-hour front desk. Fax and photocopying facilities are provided. After a long journey, taking a small stroll in the garden seems nice.
There are 2 on-site eateries with international flavours. Llamo serves a variety of Western and Tibetan food, while Changsa offers Tibetan-style hot pot and barbeques.
