The region's most luxurious lodging, the Intercontinental Resort Jiuzhai Paradise is tucked away in a valley 20 km (12 miles) from the Jiuzhaigou Nature Reserve. The sprawling complex is truly unforgettable—it was designed around a Qiang-style village that sits under a glass dome. It lets in sunlight during the day and allows glimpses of the moon at night. The rooms are extravagantly decorated and have eye-popping views. There are five eateries serving global cuisine, and a soothing spa with a pair of tranquil pools. Tibetan dancers perform nightly. A daily shuttle bus takes you to the main gate of the national park.
