St Regis Lhasa - Tibet
We love the authentic and Zen feel of St Regis Lhasa which is located within walking distance of the Old Town of Lhasa in Tibet. The guest rooms and villas are decorated in subdued browns with black-and-white photos of Buddhist pilgrims, and the spacious bathrooms boast a separate tub. Outside, there’s a spa pavilion, a meditation garden and 40-foot crimson exterior walls.
The St Regis Lhasa is a hotel soaked in traditional Tibetan culture. The imposing façade creates a perfect backdrop for your Himalayan adventure, and inside huge exposed beams, locally woven carpets, and paintings of Tibetan nomads adorns the walls.
There are 205 rooms spread over eight separate buildings. There are also villas available to guests that range from two to 12 rooms. 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; the Drawing Room serving over 40 varieties of tea; and Decanter is a wine bar with a terrace looking out to the Potala Palace.
The boutique at St Regis Lhasa has a fantastic selection of authentic souvenirs, furniture, clothing and artwork.

The best time to visit Tibet is from April to October. July to September is the rainy season, but during this time the surrounding countryside will turn green and the rivers will fill up, crisscrossing the countryside.
