Hotels & Resorts in China

The range of accommodation available in China is as wide and varied as the country. This level of choice is reflected in the properties we recommend here.
In Beijing for example, you may choose a familiar western-branded international standard property or a more traditional experience in a hutong-style hotel. Similarly, in Shanghai, you may ask us to recommend something familiar and contemporary, or a delightful heritage boutique property on the Bund. Elsewhere you may choose a characterful guesthouse, bamboo mountain lodge or luxury island resort. The choice is part of your tailor-made experience.
