WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

  • Explore: Lijiang’s old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site surrounded by incredible wild spaces, meaning guests to this remote corner of the globe will have no shortage of sights to explore during their stay.
  • A Chance to Unplug: The Songtsam Linka Lijiang is located just outside of Lijiang in an intimate Naxi village that has a slow pace of life and invites visitors to set aside the pressures of modern life and enjoy the moment.
  • Style: The hotel’s unique combinations of Naxi-Dongba, Chinese-Hantang, and Tibetan-influenced art pieces infuse the hotel with a distinctive style.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Lijiang is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a prefecture-level city in northwest Yunnan that is close to 8,000 feet above sea level and known for both its old town of cobblestone streets and the incredible natural landscapes beyond its borders. Instead of situating itself in the middle of this touristic hub, however, the Songtsam Linka Lijiang is located Ciman, which is a small Naxi-ethnic village located nearby where traditional ways of living have persisted into the present. From the hotel, guests can enjoy spectacular views of the old town, Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, and Lashi Lake. The hotel itself is designed in a Naxi courtyard style and is decorated with exquisite Hui-style stone sculptures. Spacious, well-appointed rooms have balconies, comfortable beds, and are decorated in a cozy manner. There is a spa, a heated swimming pool, and a 24-hour fitness center on site, along with a library and a boutique shop. In terms of dining, there is a restaurant that primarily serves local Naxi dishes, but there are also some Western dishes available. Breakfast is served buffet style, and guests can enjoy tea or a selection of wines later in the day. There is also a café that serves a variety of drinks and snacks. Besides exploring the old town of Lijiang, travelers can also go on hiking trips through the surrounding natural landscape, or they can explore nearby Buddhist temples and other cultural sites.
