Angsana Xishuangbanna welcomes guests
The newest Angsana property by Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts in China, Angsana Xishuangbanna has opened its doors. The resort is located in Menghai County, the “Rainforest Spring City” where the climate is pleasant and balmy all year round with mild winters and cool summers. Situated at a comfortable altitude of 1200 meters, Menghai enjoys an average annual temperature of 18.7 °C and boasts 12,000 mu of virgin tropical rainforest, making it the ideal destination for a winter getaway.
Celebrating Southeast Asian style in architectural design, the hotel is a collection of buildings with white walls and brown tiles enveloped by lush green rainforest, where guests can immerse in the rich local culture and experience Xishuangbanna’s unique ethnic heritage. The resort features 407 elegantly appointed rooms, suites and villas offering modern comfort in the tropical rainforest setting. All rooms provide spacious terraces either overlooking the landscaped rainforest garden or glittering swimming pool. A selection of the suites and villas also offer private hot spring pools.
Guests will be able to enjoy an array of distinct F&B facilities including two restaurants offering regional flavours, a café, lobby lounge and poolside bar. Offering a variety of dishes using fresh locally sourced ingredients, all-day restaurant Market Place serves authentic Southeast Asian, Yunnan and Menghai flavours.

For a true relaxing experience, visit the poolside bar for snacks and refreshing drinks after a dip in the pool.
Located in a building separate from the main hotel building, the conference centre is designed to resonate with the overall style of the resort, and offers guests a perfect space for meetings and events away from the crowd. The 600 square meters column-free Xishuangbanna Grand Ballroom is 7 meters high and can be divided into three independent rooms. The two multi-function halls of Menghai and Mengzhe each covers an area of 98 square meters and can be combined. With advanced audio-visual equipment, sound and lighting systems, these halls can accommodate a variety of event requirements. In addition, a spacious outdoor venue is also available.
At a sprawling 8,400 square meters, the well-equipped Angsana Xishuangbanna Spa and hot spring garden presents a tranquil space integrating European spa elements and traditional Asian wellness philosophy, enabling guests to embark on a healthy journey of the body and mind with 10 distinct spa and thermotherapy amenities. The five elegantly furnished royal hot spring suites each provide a private outdoor hot spring pool. Guests can also indulge in the outdoor hot spring garden with five themed sections, 20 dipping pools, and a family pool well suited for kids. Other recreational facilities include an outdoor scenic swimming pool, gym, and the Kids Club. Those looking to explore the outdoors can also spend the day in the rainforest.
Menghai county is blessed with well-preserved natural environment where fresh air rich in negative oxygen ions and organic local produce nurture the body and mind. Home to the famous Pu-er tea, this is where century-old tea trees thrive, and the Tea Horse Road originated to pass on Chinese tea culture tradition from generation to generation. Take a stroll up the ancient tea mountains to admire the beauty and history of the old tea trees, experience tea processing from fresh leaves picking to frying and fermentation.
Committed to wellness, the resort crafted healthy menus using the best local produce to deliver balanced dining options for every guest. To ensure a truly carefree and relaxing family getaway, the resort also provides healthy solid foods for families travelling with young children. Should parents wish to make their own solid foods, the resort can also help prepare the necessary ingredients.
Apart from taking optimal care of the guests’ physical health, Angsana Xishuangbanna also delivers a healing retreat for the mind and soul.
