Banyan Tree Ringha

Ringha, China

Prices From: $325 - $650

In true Banyan Tree style, the resort architecture reflects the local Tibetan culture. All 32 spacious lodges and suites are traditional Tibetan farmhouses with intricate woodcarvings, smoky fireplaces and wooden balconies that have valley or river views. Impressive pine pillars add enormous character to both the interior and exterior of each house. And of course, there is the heavenly Banyan Tree Spa.

There are 32 rustic Tibetan suites and lodges with private balconies, with either valley or river views. Each room comes with a luxuriously designed bathroom fitted with a handcrafted wooden bathtub.

In true Banyan Tree spirit, the resort is made up of original Tibetan farmhouses, which the resort group bought from local families, relocated and reconstructed in the traditional style of meticulously piling the logs one on top of another. The interior is decorated with contemporary Tibetan art and crafts, featuring exquisitely woven rugs and drapes in bright and vibrant colors.

Llamo is a Tibetan word to describe a place where common activities are held and a place where people congregate- this describes the restaurant which serves Chinese and Western menus, with a special emphasis on local ingredients. In addition, the Tea house serves a thorough range of Chinese teas.

The award-winning Banyan Tree Spa features three standard, double treatment rooms and two deluxe treatment rooms with both spa bath and shower facilities. Guests can indulge in a selection of new spa massages and Himalayan techniques, such as Gui Shi Hot Stones treatment and the relaxing Ringha massage. The spa has also developed several treatments to help guests ease muscle pain after strenuous trekking.

At 3,200 meters above sea level, the setting is spectacular with day-trips and overnight excursions taking you to mountain peaks touched by the clouds, awe-inspiring ridges, deep canyons, torrential rivers, mystical plateaus, endless valleys, crystal-clear streams and the most tranquil of lakes. Guests may choose to participate in a Shudugang Acclimatisation Trek, Shangri-La Cultural Tour, Nomad Alpine Trek, and more, comprising various levels of difficulty.
