  Culture Hotel - Linden Center, Dali


The Linden Centre is located in Dali, Yunnan Province, China. First built in 1947, the property iss the former residence of Yang Pinxiang, one of the renowned local merchants during the Republic of China period. The property embodies the traditional Bai architectural style. In 2008, the American couple Lindens restored and transformed it into a unique cultural exchange centre and boutique hotel that aims to preserve and disseminate the traditional Bai heritage.

With the Himalayan foothills providing a stunning backdrop, guests can reside in a beautiful restored national relic within a thriving village. A haven of rest and relaxation, the Linden Centre offers opportunities for reflection and meaningful interaction at a comfortable distance from the more commercialized ancient town of Dali.

There are 16 guestrooms and each of them is uniquely decorated with carefully selected items to reflect the Lindens’ appreciation of Chinese culture. The complex is equipped with a full-service bar, billiards and table tennis room, library, fitness room, kids’ room, and two beautiful terraces that look out at the fields and mountains. The on-site restaurant and café serves Chinese food with a selection of seasonal delicacies and it can cater to special dietary needs.
