Step into a luxurious retreat high in the Himalayan Mountains when you stay at St Regis Lhasa. Perched 3,680 metres above sea level the hotel offers a haven of peace and tranquillity above the Tibetan city of Lhasa – one of the highest cities in the world.  

The resort provides the perfect place for both contemplation and exploration. You can meditate in the gardens or stay at the hotel before or after an expedition to Everest Base Camp.  

Each of the elegantly decorated 199 rooms reflect Tibetan culture and offers views of the Potola Palace (former home of the Dalai Lama), Lhasa City or the resort's lush gardens. Whether you choose a room, villa or suite, you’ll find a fusion of modern technology with beautiful custom-made furnishings. Highly polished wood floors provide a warm haven.  

The perfect way to rejuvenate after a trek is to float in the bejewelled Gold Energy Pool. The saltwater pool retains a balmy water temperature where you can languish and enjoy views of the Himalaya Palace.  Treat yourself to a reviving foot massage in the Iridium Spa. Choose from two restaurants along with a tearoom and wine bar. Social features a menu of fresh fare while Yan Ting offers Chinese cuisine.  

Located in the eastern part of Lhasa, the Tibetan word for “the holy land” the resort is close to the markets of Barkhor and Jokhang Temple. Travel slightly further afield with your chauffeur and you will get your first taste of the mighty Mount Everest.
