Shangri-la, China

WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

Location: Nestled in a verdant flower-filled valley between Shangri-La and Meili, this beautiful property is surrounded by whitewashed Tibetan houses and serene wheat fields.

History: This locality is ancient, with roads only recently constructed. Visitors can experience unhurried rural life and even take part in tending the property's vegetable gardens.

Service: There are only 10 rooms at the Benzilan Songstam, ensuring personalized local hospitality for the entirety of their stay.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

The tranquil village of Benzilan sets the scene for this property - an idyllic pastoral backdrop of wheat, barley and rice fields. The pace here is relaxed, giving harried travelers a chance to experience rural living, largely unchanged for centuries. Within the property, guests can enjoy all modern conveniences, with WiFi throughout the public zones and gourmet meals prepared by local chefs. The garden provides plenty of onsite space for chilling out and enjoying the breathtaking views of this unique location, while the nearby village provide endless hours of cultural discovery, interacting with the community and experiencing an almost forgotten way of life.
