Conrad Jiuzhaigou

Modern mountainside luxury

Tucked into the rolling foothills of central China’s Min Mountains, Conrad Jiuzhaigou first appears as a quaint village rather than a luxury retreat. Several small sand-colored buildings dot the hillside, almost blending into their natural surroundings thanks to strategically placed verdant foliage, serene ponds and tranquil wooden walkways. But the inconspicuous exterior is all part of its charm.

With an internationally renowned national park on your doorstep, it’s a no-brainer to let the views do the talking — a feat at which Conrad Jiuzhaigou succeeds tremendously. Whether dining alfresco or just lounging in bed, the pristine peaks of Jiuzhai Valley National Park are always within eyesight.

Now that’s not to say that the high-end hotel lets its reputation rest on its location alone. Sleek interior design and signature Conrad hospitality reign supreme indoors, ensuring you enjoy the pinnacle of luxury at every juncture of your stay.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Conrad Jiuzhaigou occupies a particularly beautiful locale for culture lovers and nature enthusiasts. The property lies less than 10 miles from the UNESCO World Heritage Site Jiuzhaigou Valley Scenic and Historic Interest Area and just under 30 miles from the Fairy Pool Scenic Area, a breathtaking collection of 2,000 alpine lakes and pools.
  • Upon arrival, you’ll be gifted a traditional hada, a white silk scarf given as a sign of respect and welcome in Tibetan culture. It’s these uniquely local touches that make a stay at the Sichuan hotel extra special.
  • All accommodations feature spacious terraces so you can enjoy those gorgeous mountain views in privacy. Deep-soaking tubs and faux fireplaces make the interiors as inviting as the rolling hills outside your window.
  • Ethically and locally sourced ingredients highlight the menu at signature dining venue Bas.In. Dine indoors to enjoy views of the lively show kitchen or head outside under a thatched roof-covered patio to enjoy mountain breezes with your breakfast.
  • An intimate spa promotes nature-inspired serenity with locally inspired treatments paired with soothing views of the hotel’s natural surroundings through floor-to-ceiling windows.

The Look

  • Conrad Jiuzhaigou takes its design cues from the local Amdo Tibetan culture by keeping things simple and letting the natural surroundings do the talking. Sleek, low-sitting furniture and plenty of large picture windows help achieve this simple ethos.
  • Further honoring the local culture, Tibetan motifs are seamlessly integrated into the luxury hotel’s design. Look for original artifacts like sword handles and wooden furniture upholstered with traditionally bold patterned fabrics.
  • Subtle nature-inspired accents can be found throughout the Jiuzhaigou hotel, such as flower-patterned rugs and mountain-inspired artworks in the 161 rooms and villas.
  • Bas.In echoes the high-end hotel’s local ethos with Tibetan wood furniture and locally made handicrafts on display throughout. The clever use of vibrant plants and natural materials brings the outdoors in without sacrificing on style.
