Shangri-La Hotel Lhasa

​Located within walking distance of some of the Tibetan capital's best-known attractions. Shangri-La Hotel Lhasa exudes local elegance within tranquil and ancient surroundings and distinctive Tibetan architecture.

Located within walking distance of some of the Tibetan capital's best-known attractions is the first Shangri-La hotel in Tibet which exudes local elegance within tranquil and ancient surroundings and distinctive Tibetan architecture, interior design and service.

Each of its 262 guestrooms and 17 suites features designs inspired by the Tibetan city - little touches of turquoise, a stone prized in Tibet, and bedside lights in the shape of prayer wheels, breathe character into every room. Views of the gleaming Potala Palace or the mountains are enjoyed from every room.

There are four exceptional restaurants: Shang Palace offers the best in Cantonese and Sichuan cuisine, while Altitude features live cooking stations with Asian fare and Tibetan and Indian specialities as well as Western cuisine. Take afternoon tea in the elegant Lodgers Lounge, and later head to Shamala for tapas and drinks while watching the sun descend over the Potala Palace. Here, too, you will find thoughtful details imbuing a sense of place; curtains like prayer flags hang over the Altitude buffet restaurant and a giant lotus flower dominates the ballroom.

Shangri-La Lhasa has everything you would expect from a luxury hotel – a well-equipped gym, spa and indoor heated pool – with the addition of unique Tibetan services. Guests can unwind in the oxygen lounge and reflexology pavilion while adjusting to the high altitude, then revive the body and mind at CHI spa with a soothing signature treatment.

  • Stunning views of the Potala Palace or mountains from every room
