Songtsam Retreat
Shangri-La

With 75 rooms in 24 buildings, the Songtsam Retreat is a sprawling accommodation nestled in the mountains of Shangri-La. A beautiful 10-minute walk from the Songzanlin Monastery, the largest Buddhist monastery in Tibet, the retreat houses vast collections of Tibetan-style wooden furniture, traditional carpets, wooden paintings and copper artifacts. Guestrooms feature a blend of Tibetan wood furniture built by local Tibetan craftsmen, a small working fireplace, modern amenities, and soft, comfortable beds. The Western breakfast buffet - spread in a cavernous dining lodge with tall windows and Tibetan style furniture, includes a choice of fresh pastries, fruit, eggs cooked to order, a selection of cereals, coffee and tea. With gorgeous surrounding scenery and incredible traditional interior design, the Songtsam Retreat is a haven for those interested in art or Tibetan culture and provides a truly unique experience for all its guests.
