Went here for a business trip and will definitely be bringing back the family. The natural beauty of the place and the history make it a must see. The design of the property fits perfectly. The room design is also true to the location with so many small details. Loved it. Great club lounge and the food on property is... More

It is a bit disappointed to stay here. I think this is a well designed hotel for people who wish to explore the Lijiang Ancient City many years ago. I can hardly find western visitor except Chinese inside now. The staffs are very very friendly but mainly speak Chinese not fluent English. Food style also designed for Chinese although you... More

The lobby is spectacular and a great pleasure to walk into as you have a magnificent view of the mountain. The location is possibly the best as you can enjoy the anciant town but escape to a peacful resort environment. The rooms are extremely comfortable. The staff are extremely obliging but need more training for five star service. The restaurants... More

Its a 30 mins ride fm airport to the resort which is also next to Lijiang Old Town. The estate for a resort within the city is well sized... More

Hidden in a bustling main town square and Sifanjie, indulging yourself in an Lijiang Ancient Town Chinese architecture guest room, particularly impressed with the open spacious antique bathroom & great bathtub. Sitting outside the guest room balcony, enjoying the bird singing, blue sky, warm sunny breeze before 7pm and I must say it is an awesome seren moment. It is... More

On arrival here, the first thing I noticed was the architecture, roof design and how the design fitted into the ancient theme of the city. The rooms are all low-rise and all the units looked alike so were all ground floor or first floor rooms. This room, or at least mine, was very comfortable and I really liked the design... More

This is a first class hotel and the location is excellent. If you go out the back gate you are only a few minutes walk from the market. The market is filled with interesting people (Yi people, Naxi people) and unusual foods (fried crickets, grasshoppers, etc.). This is the place to stay in Lijiang. You won't be disappointed.

What a super hotel! There are amazing view of the mountain, good service (if not overly warm), clean and comfortable guest rooms, and within walking distance of the Old Town and the wet market. This is really a beautiful area, and I would stay here again, if I ever return.

The moment we laid our eyes on this hotel, I knew I had made a right choice against the many mom-and-pop shops I also considered. Harmony must be on top of the mind of the architect who designed this place - it blends completely with its surroundings yet with modern indulgence. The guest room is exquisitely decorated with both style... More

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed our time. The location of this hotel is just a door steps away from the ancient town. There is a backdoor access right into the ancient town and after 5 minutes walk, you will be right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of it. The walk itself to the center... More
