Relais & Châteaux has launched a new 2012 guide for its hotels and gourmet restaurants in Asia – including unique insights on local destinations.

The ‘Our Innkeepers’ Guide to Discovering Asia 2012-2013’ invited each innkeeper to reveal secrets and tips on where to go, what to do and how to enjoy their destinations.

 It creates an ‘up close and personal’ insight into the brand’s 39 properties in 32 locations across the region – from Greater China, Japan and Thailand to Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Bali, India and Sri Lanka.

Along with individual property reviews, destination reviews, new itineraries and tips for ‘Secret Places’, the guide includes a special section called ‘Cuisine du Coeur’ where chefs speak about their passion for food and local produce. The book also has a part entitled ‘Planet & People’, which highlights the effort for sustainability and social responsibility.

A growing number of Greater China properties have joined the Relais & Châteaux portfolio recently. These include Jingmai Brilliant Resort & Spa in Yunnan, set amid the largest ancient tea garden in the world, and JE Mansion, an oasis of Chinese tradition in the heart of Beijing’s commercial and business district.

Elsewhere in Asia, new members include Villa Samadhi, a haven of peace at the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s urban jungle, and Bettei Senjuan, which boasts enchanting views of cherry blossoms carpeting Mount Tanigawa in Japan.

“These Maîtres de Maisons’ passion for life, food and art de vivre extends far beyond their magnificent yet intimate hotels, it delves deep into the communities in which they live,” said the guide’s editor. “Relais & Châteaux is not a chain, but a fellowship of fiercely independent people and unique properties that have together redefined luxury hospitality by emphasising holistic and personal experiences that transport guests on a sensual journey, introducing them to a deeper and honest understanding of the Art of Living.”

Relais & Châteaux properties across Asia are this year supporting a foundation named Shark Savers, which works to raise awareness of sharks being fished towards extinction due to the large demand for shark’s fin soup.
