Lux Lijiang Opens in China

Hot Opening: Lux Lijiang

Get your fill of heritage and hardcore relaxation in one go: the Lux Lijiang is slated to open this September, and it’s a real looker. For one, the 30-room boutique hotel is in the heart of China’s Shangri-La region, which remains surprisingly unspoiled. And it’s hard to beat the heritage-chic feel of the hotel itself—think pretty Chinese-style courtyards and peaceful water features juxtaposed with cool, contemporary-style rooms. Culture-seekers will appreciate nearby UNESCO-heritage Lijiang Ancient Town that’s ripe for exploring, as well as the Pu’er tea plantations scattered around the countryside. Lux Lijiang is the first of many hotel openings in China from the Lux Resorts & Hotels brand, so watch for more additions across Yunnan, Sichuan and Tibet.
