A phrase often used to describe an earthly paradise, the search for Shangri-La has eluded pleasure seekers for centuries, but thanks to the innovative minds at Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts, the search for utopia ends with Banyan Tree Ringha. Nestled betwixt the rolling hills of the Tibetan countryside, Banyan Tree Ringha embodies serenity and simplicity in the Yunnan Province of Tibet's very own Shangrila County. Artfully restored and meticulously maintained Tibetan farmhouses serve as comfortable, spacious lodgings in this heavenly hideaway. Outfitted in rich colors of the Tibetan flag, bold blues, romantic reds, and golden yellows coat the walls and plush tapestries, while intricate woodcarvings and local art enhance the décor. Guests preferring a more intimate setting may opt for one of the smaller bi-level cottages, where a cozy fireplace and handcrafted wooden hot tub offset the rustic charm.
Local culture is celebrated in every detail at this secluded sanctuary, from the savory dishes and sweet teas served at the hotel's array of eateries, bars, and lounges, to the awe-inspiring Banyan Tree Gallery Ringha, where art, textiles, and spa products are made available to guests who hope to take home a little Shangri-La. Explore the deepest trenches on a guided trek around the resort, experience a moment of spiritual stillness in a local temple, or simply kick back with a good book from the resort's library. Honeymoon and getaway packages make a romantic journey à deux more memorable with experiences like Highland Romance, a ride on horseback through the verdant plains to the Tibetan Plateau where a decadent four-course meal is served via candle and lantern light. Not sure of what to do or where to go? The Banyan Tree Concierge is available to ensure that every facet of your trip exceeds expectations, and that you experience the true meaning of Shangri-La at Banyan Tree Ringha.
