The St Regis Lhasa is a stunning hotel soaked in Tibetan traditional culture. The imposing façade creates a perfect backdrop for your Himalayan adventure from the moment you step into the hotel. Unique local art adorns the walls of both the common areas and individual guest rooms at the St Regis, giving it a homelier feel.
There are 205 rooms at the hotel spread over eight separate buildings. In additional to traditional rooms and suites, there are also villas available to guests that range from two to 12 rooms. Rooms start at a spacious 51 square metres and are lushly decorated in exotic tones with warm wood finishes. Guests looking for something a little bit more special can opt for a room or suite with uninterrupted views out to the nearby Potala Palace.
Guests are spoilt by a selection of five dining venues: Si Zi Kang serving up traditional Tibetan dishes; Social with its assortment of international cuisine; Yan Ting boasting an extensive Chinese menu overlooking the hotel’s shimmering lake; the Drawing Room, perfect for tea lovers and serving over 40 varieties; and Decanter, a wine bar with an intimate outdoor terrace looking out to the Potala Palace. The hotel’s boutique had a fantastic selection of authentic souvenirs, furniture, clothing and artwork.
