Banyan Tree Ringha, Zhongdian, China

Our rating: Deluxe

The Banyan Tree resort is a half hour drive away from Zhongdian town, in a beautifully remote and rural area, which allows you to truly immerse yourself in the peace and tranquillity of your surroundings in suitably modern and luxurious accommodation.

In true Banyan Tree style, the resort architecture reflects the local culture. All lodges 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.

If you are keen to indulge yourself at the Banyan Tree Spa then please let us know and we will happily pre-book an appointment for you.
