Having travelled from beautiful Hangzhou, to Yunnan we were expecting a lot as the travel books had promised us. No doubt the region is incredibly beautiful and our choice of accommodation at Banyan Tree Lijiang was the perfect one. From the moment we stepped out of the car, when we saw the Snow Dragon Mountain it was an exhilarating experience.... More

This hotel is really special. The view of the Himalayas are magnificent. We stayed in a villa and had our own hot tub in our front garden which we used every day. I used their spa which was excellent. From the Hotel you can attend a performance of "Yin Xiang Lijiang" directed by Zhang Yimou , the Chinese Film director... More

My wife and I had booked a 4 night stay in Garden room but at last minute our son who is studying in China decided to join us. The hotel suggested that we upgrade to a 2 bedroom villa for a very small supplement over the cost of an additional bed in our original room. The villa had a garden... More

When booking the Banyan Tree, I wondered how in the world it could be so low on the Trip Advisor list. Well...it didn't take long to figure out. The surroundings and architecture are absolutely stunning, but that's certainly where the good times stopped. I'll admit that the room is certainly romantic, with great views of Snow Mountain. But is that... More

We had a wonderful stay in Banyan Tree Lijiang from 1 - 4 April 2014. Lee Li was excellent in showing us around the 2-bedroom Duplex Room we had. He even loaned us a local phone with his mobile number so that we could contact him if we need anything. He was very proactive to inform us of the rainy... More

The resort mainly caters to locals and surrounding nationalities. For Europeans the food selection may be limited and communication a bit difficult. That being said, we had a wonderful 5 night stay in a beautiful spa villa. Very clean, very tidy. Fresh fruit basket every day. Complimentary bottle of red wine. Fresh ground coffee and plunge coffee maker in villa.... More

First visit to Lijiang with my family last week. Banyan Tree Lijiang stay was the best choice. The double storey, 2 bedroom was super spacious. The kids enjoyed their stay very much. The upper floor provided us the most scenic view of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. Hotel staffs are helpful & friendly. The hotel limo service is excellent & driver... More

My family and I stayed at the Banyan Tree Lijiang for four nights. We loved the place and services are excellent. Location is a bit far from the city but it is worth being there. Language is a weak point but the staff still managed to provide good services.
