LUX* Resorts & Hotels opened LUX* Tea Horse Road Benzilan, its second boutique hotel along the LUX* Tea Horse Road, China. The ancient Tea Horse Road was once a trade route through Yunnan, Sichuan and Tibet.

The hotel’s design was inspired by typical Tibetan architecture, and traditional materials and methods were used where possible. LUX* Benzilan has an all-day restaurant, a Café LUX*, a swimming pool and 30 Tibetan-inspired rooms and suites, all with views of the peaks of Baima Snow Mountains, surrounded by Tibetan villages on the banks of the Jinsha River, one of the three branches of the Yangtze river.

LUX* Tea Horse Road Benzilan joins sister hotel LUX* Lijiang, which launched last year. The two hotels are linked via a route that follows the original path of the ancient trade route. LUX* Tea Horse Road Lijiang is located at the foot of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, in Lijiang’s ancient town, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The property has traditional timber-frame structures of Naxi architecture, with the rooms offering views over courtyards and traditional style rooftops.
