We stayed at BT Ringha for four nights and left feeling refreshed and like we’d made new friends. The room was traditional and luxurious at the same time. It’s not the sort of place you go if your looking for nightlife or shopping but it is exactly the right place to go and relax. Extremely comfortable beds and a room that comes equipped with everything you could need. And enough space!!! Loads of space as it has the sleeping and living areas upstairs with bathing and dressing downstairs. There’s ample storage too. The river, the fresh air and the most perfectly rural countryside all add up to total peace and quiet. The air is full of the smells of the trees and vegetation and it is a heavenly smell. Ms Ama was an amazing hostess and she taught us all so much about the area, the people and how they live and farm. That was really interesting. She also walked us up to the local temple which was very special. She took so much time to explain it all to us. She is like a walking encyclopaedia! Ms. Dolma made sure that we were very well fed and cared for and she is such a kind person she deserves mention. She also took the time to teach us a bit about the area and life in Ringha. She was especially attentive to our son. Overall we loved this experience and would love to visit again in the winter months. It must be even more beautiful then. We look forward to being welcomed by AMA’s hugs and the smiles of a wonderful staff.…
This has got to be one of the best hotels in the planet! Not only are the facilities amazing but the staff couldn't do enough to help and make our experience memorable. The accommodation is beautiful traditional Tibetan houses, set beside a river where you can see horses, yaks, sheep, cows and countless wild birds. The lovely Ama came into work on her day off to take us on a tour out the village and the local Buddhist temple. The food at the resort is amazing and the local hot pot is a must try (don't eat too soon before though, portions are very generous). I hope to be back very soon.
The Banyan Tree Ringha is very unique. Located about 30 minutes from Old Town Shangri-La and Potatso National Park, the hotel is in a rural area and offeres the opportunity to stay in farmhouses that used to belong to Tibetan families. The rooms are decorated in a traditional Tibetan manner. With simplistic yet comfortable furniture (and a wooden bathtub), the room offers a unique retreat for couples. The onsite restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner-- and the chance to experience a Tibetan hotpot. Staff service was impeccable and they made us feel like family. We will definitely return to the Banyan Tree Ringha in the future.
We ate lunch at Banyan tree Ringhai and food is delicious! We love the pork ribs, stir fried vegetables, yak meat bbq skewers. I also like the saffron egg custard for dessert. This is a good meal ending our family holiday in Yunnan (Lijiang and Shangri-la) before heading to airport. Kudos to the staff - very friendly and accomodating!
Amazing scenery and wonderful resort set in the hills and valleys outside Shangri-la. Villa 207 was beautiful inside and picturesque scene to wake up to. The staff are friendly and Ama made us feel like family. She and team made the stay feel particularly special. Worth a visit!!!
