How to Get There
Originally from Hong Kong, Studied in UK, travelled a bit - if you have similar background, you might find my comments useful.
First time travelling to Yunan. I started from LiJiang so to get used to the altitudes, it is more helpful that way, as air here is thinner.
I got picked up by Hotel, we communicated the place and time for pick up over We Chat, and so the whole experience was very smooth. Hotel cars are nice - they are Range Rovers or BMW. Hotel would further transport you and your luggage by gold carts - everything is just well taken care of. In fact it is one of the finest hotels in the area.
The hotel is located in a protected area, so the air here is extra fresh. The density of rooms are very low, basically every room are nearly individual (semi-detached). All rooms are decorated as Tibet style, as the people here are under heavy influence of Tibet. This hotel is a retreat, therefore, it is a place for you to slow down, chill and relax. The room is very nicely decorated and spacious, and everyday there are fresh fruits and home-made cookies (they are delicious i bought few packs back home). All mini-bars are free of charge.
The food from the restaurant is actually very nice so i would recommend if you stay for a lunch / dinner. Breakfast selection is not huge, but taste nice.
Would definitely recommend to stay at this place, but you need to stay here for a few days in order to truly wind down and relax.
Due to a mixed up in the booking, we nearly landed up not staying at Songtsam Linka and what a missed opportunity it would have been for us. The quality of the decor and finishing in the rooms and the restaurants which reflected an old world splendor and not to mention the fantastic view of the Songzalin monastery which was makes the place so tranquil and serene. A great joy for me was to sit at the balcony of my room sipping ginger tea freshly delivered by the hotel staff watching the sunset every evening. The level of service befits its M gallery branding. Cannot possibly recommend this hotel enough.
One of the best hotel to experience "heaven on earth". It is located in a farming valley, a distance away from the now busy Shangri-la (DiQing) city. And it is just right behind the biggest Tibetan Buddhist Monastery, surrounded by mountains. Peaceful, scenic, very friendly staff.
