Beautiful location with great views of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. Room excellent. Two good massages in Spa but facial took forever (2 hrs+) and was clinical and boring and staff seemed disinterested in my comments after. Staff kept wanting to do turndown at 4.30pm and we declined until we left for dinner but came back from hike at 4.20 on... More

We very much enjoyed our stay. We were upgraded to a Garden Villa which provided great privacy and quiet with views out our window of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. The villa was large with a vey comfortable bed and good lighting. The reception manager who spoke excellent English was very helpful and apologetic when they couldn't find our reservation because...

Among the Banyan Tree properties that I have stayed in, this is easily the best. Every morning, the view of the Jade Snow Mountain from our 3-bedroom villa is simply inspiring. The place is big and quiet and everything you need for a great stay are available in the villa right down to raincoat jackets! I also appreciate the fact... More

I spent several nights in this resort. The property is beautiful and has a great view to the mountains - on of the best BT properties I know. The villa I was staying in was well appointed and in good taste. I just didn't like one thing there: the humidifying machine in the bedroom (the air is VERY dry!) was... More

We didn't plan for a trip to Yunnan during the holidays, but decided on a self drive journey from Kunming to Lijiang stopping over in Dali. Dali was very enjoyable but in terms of accommodation we were disappointed, as the city was very crowded with a music festival of some sort and we got a "left over", guest house. Nevertheless,...

Banyan Tree Lijiang is the hotel I like best. Nice weather these days, nice snow mountain view,nice people. Stay in the hotel is very peace, you don't have to go out, just experience the magnificent mountain view and experience the quiet and peaceful life here. We will come back here again soon...

One of the best hotel in Lijiang, the hotel close to Shuhe Ancient Town, walk there only need 10 minutes from hotel. We booked the Spa Villa which there are two floors and can see Jade Dragon Snow Mountain in the room directly. The welcome fruites are also good. Because it's a resort, walk to villa would take 5 minutes... More

Lijiang has always been one of my favourite travel destinations in China and hence I have been here 4 times now over the last 5 years and this was my third stay with Banyan tree Lijiang. Whilst I am a little disappointed that Lijiang, its various old towns and landscape have unavoidably became more built-up and commercialized over the years,... More

With the Yulong mountain as a backdrop, the Banyan Tree resort doesn't need much to be special. Overall, it is a great resort. Everything you expect from a 5 star property. My friend and I had decided on spending a lot of time out of the resort so we chose the Deluxe Garden Villa. When we checked in, we were... More
