This is a great place to stay if you want to get away from it all. It is located in a remote location in a rural Tibetan village. This hotel has very unique design and decoration--- Tibetan style with great color coordination. Staff are very friendly and excellent services. By the way they make very good pizza here.

Banyan Tree Ringha was an excellent stay. The manager Tashi and staff member Helen were very welcoming and provided excellent support during our stay. Shangri-la is at about 10,000 feet (3,000 metres) and we were warned about altitude sickness, and for our first 24 hours we were out of breath and had nasty headaches. Helen plied us with a honey-based... More

In response to the management's reply to my wife's feedback on the incident of my missing Oakley sunglasses, I must emphasise again that I'm absolutely sure that it has been left in the first room. As mentioned in her comments, we had a photo to show that the sunglasses was left on the coffee table and I did not take... More

We stayed 2 nights from 31 Dec to 2 Jan in a 2-level Tibetan suite, supposedly requested for a room facing the valley. The first room we checked in was indeed facing the valley but the main heater was not working. For a weather at as low as -10°C at night, we definitely need adequate heating in the room. Although...

Having truly enjoyed our stay in Banyan Tree in Lijiang, my wife and I were really looking forward to a nice stay in Banyan Tree Ringha in Shangri-La. The hotel prides itself in the design of the facility and how it adapted the local living and Tibetan culture into the villa construction. I would submit the design is indeed unique... More

I recently visited Shangri-La in Yunnan Province (once part of Tibet) and stayed at the Banyan Tree Ringha, in a small village 30 minutes drive from Shangri-La city). The hotel is situated in an extremely small, traditional Tibetan village, surrounded by mountains. The hotel is made up of old Tibetan farmhouses that had been discarded but have been reused to...

This is not your usual hotel. It has something very magical about it ... the people! The accommodation itself is made up of recycled Tibetan farmhouses. They are beautifully equipped with traditional Tibetan carpets everywhere as well as as mixture of modern and traditional furnishings with the biggest wooden bathtub I've ever seen. The staff couldn't have been more helpful,... More

Actually there is no hotel or resort at similar class in the county. Banyan tree is definitely the best choice. Of course, just like some of the reviews said the location is far away from downtown, not much facility inside the resort and expensive. Yes, all of these observations are somewhat true and correct. BUT, ask yourself, what are you... More
