Mesmerizing Tranquility at the Hide Away Hotel Hylla

Hylla Hotel links the area's past with a forward thinking philosophy, while focusing on a natural and sustainable approach to mountain resorts. The hotel blends collectible mid-century furniture with local artisan-made details and an evolving art collection. Balancing comfort and spiritual placement, all at 2,400 meters above sea level.

Built under the snow-capped mountains of Lijiang, from a palette of locally sourced stone, Hylla Hotel and Land is grounded in the ancient Naxi kingdom, home to the ethnic Naxi group who have inhabited the foothills of the Himalayas since the 11th century. Today, the site not only contains a hotel, but also a gallery, a lounge, a panoramic terrace and a restaurant.

Back in 2017, Liu Xiaoke—the founder of HYLLA, came across Yanjiao Village for the first time. Along the village roads banksia roses bloomed, which fragrance reminded Xiaoke of childhood when he walked home every day on his regular route from school. As a result, the unexpected fragrant trigger links Xiaoke with this beautiful place.

Located north in Lijiang by the foot of Yulong Snow Mountain, it connects the Zhi Mountains while embracing a rare view of snow mountain sceneries, rural fields and a complete canopy line. Adding to the advantage of Lijiang in the traveling business as a top destination, it was hard for Xiaoke to resist the invitation of this land either from a rational or emotional perspective. It is only natural to let it be, and help it grow.
