Between the Duo'ema Mountain Range and the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, sprawls the Sheraton Jiuzhaigou Resort. Set amidst miles and miles of conservation area inhabited by pandas and monkeys, surrounded by glassy lakes and sparkling waterfalls, the hotel is a true retreat into Southwestern China’s fairy land. On site, the accommodation is world class; from superior rooms to presidential suites, the decor is elegant but cosy, with all the mod cons including high-speed internet and enormous flat-screen televisions. Dining options are diverse, from the flavors of Sichuan, Tibet and Qiang at Pearl Court Restaurant to international choices at Coloured Lake Cafe. What’s more, there’s live music and entertainment in the basement disco including karaoke or, for a more tranquil evening, cocktails, wines and cigars are on offer in the lobby bar. Recreation opportunities abound with an onsite theater, indoor pool and a games room featuring table tennis and billiards. Guests in need of a little pampering can head to the spa where a range of treatments are available as well as wet and dry saunas.
