In our view the location is the best in LIjiang as it is on the edge of the old town which you access via a private door at the back of the resort. The beautiful architecture recreates the old Lijiang feel but with all the modern comfort. The rooms are located in 2-storey buildings, good replicas of the old houses... More

What a beautiful place it is! The location is unbeatable: right on the edge of the Old Twon. Our junior suite(Club Intercontinental room) was big and comfortable, with a bathtub on one end, toilet, stall, and closet the other, everything spic and span. The fun thing was the swiveling tv which allowed us to watch tv in bed or on... More

You know it's going to be a great hotel as soon as you step into the lobby and see the awesome Jade Dragon Snow Mountain framed in the floor to ceiling window. It is confirmed by the luxury room furnished Shangri-La style (1930's novel not the hotel chain) and the fantastic location adjoining the old town of Lijiang with its... More

The hotel is beautiful, and walking in the city is very pleasant. Trip to Tiger Leaping Gorge was easily arranged at Concierge desk. Lijiang is not as large as other cities we visited, but its setting with beautiful mountains in the distance is lovely. And a stream runs through its amazingly congested outdoor market. Finally, the trip to Tiger Leaping... More

The suites which we stayed in are situated close to the main building which makes moving around very convenient. The rooms are well-appointed with a good and practical layout that includes a passageway separating the living room from the bedroom to ensure optimal privacy when there are visiting guests. The bathroom is spacious enough to contain a large bath tub... More

Spa was superb - we took up the couple package which was a pricey but... More

The magnificent hotel is located on south side of the ancient town. The property is so big, it’s almost like a small town itself. It’s beautifully designed in Naxi (local people, not Chinese) style, there are fountains, gardens, and the detailed wood work of the buildings are just outstanding! All the guest room buildings are two-storied. I read people talking... More

Fantastic view from the bar cafe over old town towards the mountains. Staff need more training and more English to be a real 5-star international hotel, as it seems to cater more for Chinese tastes. Overall, quite a nice place. Recommend you get a package deal from Lijiang Guides for room, guiding and transport, as they got us a much... More
