“A little gem”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

It is rare to find a high quality boutique hotel in this part of China. It fills a hole at the upper end.

Large rooms (40sm+), luxurious fittings, courtyard, lounge and roof relaxing areas (rather like a Morrocan Riad) and a great location with uninterrupted views over vineyards. I was encouraged to wander the vineyards and sample the grapes!

Located in a genuine Uighur (minority) village on the outskirts of Turpan, the Lodge has been designed to mirror Uighur way of life outside - but with top Western comforts inside. A feat really - given the (lack of) local infrastructure!

A good touch was the free beer and water in the room fridges. Free internet (cable).

The restaurant is set in a vineyard courtyard location (brilliant setting) and serves some of the best (and inexpensive) Uighur restaurant food I have tasted.

Does not have all the add on's of 4 star hotels (no pool, no kareoke, no bar), but for ambience, local cultural immersion and yet safe and secure quality lodgings there would be nothing in Xinjiang to match it.

Room Tip: All rooms are large and around a central courtyard. Any one (of 5) is good.
