Qinghai-Tibet Plateau plays host to 500th landmark Ritz-Carlton in China.

Ritz-Carlton Reserve recently announced the opening of Rissai Valley, marking the brand's arrival in China.

The hotel is a joint effort by Marriott International and China Green Development Investment Group, a State-owned enterprise. The opening underlines the companies' longstanding commitment to quality experiences and local communities.

The latest resort in the Ritz-Carlton Reserve portfolio, Rissai Valley was opened on June 15 in Jiuzhaigou, a valley on the edges of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau in the southwestern province of Sichuan.

Jiuzhaigou boasts unparalleled natural beauty with alpine mountains and an ancient forest. The region hosts an array of pools, lakes and waterfalls in shades of blue, green, yellow and purple. It has been inscribed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and World Biosphere Reserve.

In this spellbinding setting, Rissai Valley — whose name is a transliteration of the Tibetan word for "village" — is a luxury hideaway that offers guests "immersive connections with the natural surroundings and culture of traditional Tibetan village life", according to Marriott International.

"We are thrilled to debut Rissai Valley, China's first Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Jiuzhaigou, one of the most stunningly beautiful and culturally rich areas of the world," said Tina Edmundson, president of luxury at Marriott International.
