St. Regis Lhasa

Why We Love This Hotel :

Location: This hotel is located in the famed Barkhor area, surrounded by stunning landscapes, and nearly 4,000 meters above sea level - among the highest city altitudes in the world.

History: Lhasa has a rich and colorful history that dates back over a millenium, and the St. Regis Lhasa faces one of the most important historical sites in the city - the once chief residence of the Dalai Lama.

Service: Guests can benefit from 24 hour bespoke butler service so that they need not lift a finger.

The hotel has a range of facilities including a spa, cookery school, business center and temperature-controlled relaxation pool with views of the Himalayas.

Business Center

Business travelers can enjoy a fully-equipped business center, as well as internet access in all corners of the hotel.

Golden Energy Pool

This temperature-controlled relaxation pool with views of the Himalayas is ideal for de-stressing. A poolside area with cabana-style seating is provided as an area for guests to enjoy food and drinks, and even a reviving foot massage.

Iridium Spa

This spacious spa is located in a tranquil setting. It offers traditional Tibetan herbal treatments customized to one's needs, which are determined in a consultation before the treatment itself. Guests can choose from a wide range of spa services, from two to three hour packages, to shorter massages and facial treatments.

Three full-service restaurants are available to guests, in addition to a well-appointed tea room and a fully-stocked wine bar.

Decanter by Haut-Brisson

Guests can enjoy an al fresco wine experience on this wine bar's outdoor patio in the Spring and Summer months, while in the cold season, they can cozy up to the eight-seater bar or on the plush leather seating. In addition to wine, guests may sample aged cognacs and imported cigars.

Si Zi Kang

This relaxed restaurant features authentic Tibetan and Nepalese cuisine, including such hearty regional dishes as Tibetan momos, deeply flavored curries, and Thenthuk Tibetan noodles with sliced yak meat, radish and spinach. Wine has been carefully-selected to accompany the rich flavors and tastes.


This all-day dining hub provides stunning views of the Himalayas from its floor-to-ceiling windows. Chefs put on a cooking show from their five stations, serving up varied dishes, from pasta to wok-fried seafood. The restaurant's high ceilings are complemented by white-washed walls and splashes of vibrant color, as well as traditional Tibetan motifs.

The Drawing Room

This comfortable room can be as social or intimate as guests prefer, being both the ideal spot to meet friends for drinks, or to curl up on a plush sofa with a book. Carefully-selected teas are available in over 40 varieties, including Royal Pu'er Tea, Ginseng, Oolong, King Tie Guan Yin, Jasmine, and Chamomile. Tea-infused cocktails and mocktails are also a crowd pleaser here.

Yan Ting

This authentic Chinese restaurant features cuisines from all over China, including Cantonese, Sichuanese, Hunanese and TanFu dishes. In addition to the main dining room, there are five private dining areas for group gatherings and important business meetings. Simple elegance with a touch of Chinese flair creates an understated atmosphere at this lovely dining establishment.
