Apart from providing a luxurious springboard for ascents of the nearby sacred mountain, this new resort on the leafy outskirts of Chengdu makes an ideal landing pad if you’ve just arrived on an international flight and don’t feel like delving into the heart of the city. The entrance frames an idyllic view over the hotel’s terracotta-tiled cottages and bamboo groves to the wooded hillsides beyond. All of the suites are styled with fragrant, pale hardwood and pistachio-coloured silk and canopied beds. Featuring Sichuanese, Cantonese and Shandong menus, as well as Western and Thai options, the food is gourmet standard.
