During our 3 nights stay in Lijiang we opted for small local hotel outside of the city in the small village of Baisha. The name of the hotel was quite frankly rather ambitious, I'll give you that. Nonetheless and even though this was by far not a resort, this cute little hotel was a great place to stay; far from all the animation and the crowds.
Our stay was booked through hotels.com. Prices were about 60 USD per night without breakfast. I actually did redeem 2 nights from hotels.com fidelity program for that stay.
To be frank we struggles a lot to get there. No taxi drivers knew where it was and the bus indications were bad. Finally a local helped us by explaining to the cab lady where it was and asked she call the manager who would meet us on the main square of the village. In the end it worked ok thanks to the hospitality and patience of the local folks, something we would encounter on numerous occasion in Yunnan province.
Upon checking in, the manager said the room we had booked was not available and he had given us another one. In fact it was a downgrade since we had requested a mountain view queen, which this room did not have. Turns out, the hotel was full and nobody wanted that room because of the smells in the bathroom. Still could be worse.
On the second night we were re accommodated to a larger room where the air was much more pleasant. We had breakfast and dinner several time and the food was excellent. There was no routines though, has no specific hours were given and in the end we did not even pay for all the food we ate.
Our few days in Lijiang went very fast and we were very happy to return to quiet Baisha everynight. The village is becoming a hotspot these days with fancy cafes and galleries. If you ever go there, visit doctor Ho, he's amazing.
Far from a resort but a decent B&B, the Baisha holiday resort is a great place to stay in Lijiang. I would probably come back.
