Officially part of Greater Tibet, Shangri-La has strong Tibetan influences and this is reflected in the beautiful lodges and suites at Banyan Tree Ringha, which are constructed from authentic Tibetan farmhouses.

When not out exploring the extraordinary surrounds of the hotel, enjoy the fabulous world renowned Banyan Tree Spa experience surrounded by intricate carvings and Tibetan artefacts. Indulgent treatments are inspired by Himalayan practices and the ancient Chinese Five Elements philosophy and although they incorporate many western techniques, are exotic and unlike anything you will have experienced before.
