St Regis Lhasa Resort
St Regis Lhasa Resort, Lhasa, Tibet
Until recently, accommodation in Lhasa consisted of characterful but simple guesthouses or ugly, functional group tour hotels, but with the opening of the St Regis, right in the centre of Tibet's capital, Lhasa finally has a luxury hotel to rival the best that Beijing and Shanghai can offer. The St Regis occupies a prime position in the city on Jiangsu Road, a short walk from the bustling markets around Bharkor Square, and the timeless lanes and alleys of the Tibetan Quarter.
Potala Palace rooms have superb views of the stunning former residence of the Dalai Lama, and restaurants offer excellent Tibetan, Chinese and international cuisine.
