“One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

This hotel was literally one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in. The view from the front and the back are spectacular at all times in the day, the lobby is beautiful, and the hotel itself is absolutely gorgeous. The rooms are huge and the bathroom is extremely well done. The breakfast buffet was delicious and I was extremely comfortable during my stay. I highly recommend waking up early to see the view of the Jade Mountain from the back/side, accessible by the breakfast buffet. I saw someone place a telescope out there at some point during the morning so maybe check that out. Only complaint is that they appeared to be doing construction in the back so there are cranes in all of my pictures of the mountain but that's ok! Would highly recommend staying here, not really accessible by foot so a car is necessary!

Some of the stationery in your room talks of the Treasure Harbour International Hotel, while some describes it as Wonderport International Hotel. Apparently the hotel has a Chinese name, and it can translate either way but you would think they would strive for consistency. The hotel buzzes with activity, lots of families, and is surrounded by mountains. The room is a real surprise. It is wonderfully large, and very well appointed. It offers one of the most comfortable beds I have used in China. The bathroom too is very nice, and everything works. The breakfast spread is quite generous, although the staff reacts somewhat sluggishly to clearing up tables and replenishing food. Overall, though, a good experience. Make sure you have transport though if you stay here, it is some distance from town.

Room Tip: Try and get a room with a view of the Snow Mountain.

Buzzing place. Many Chinese tourists. Booming city and they've saved a significant part of the old town. Plenty of "shop 'til you drop" opportunities.
Locals dancing and exercising in main square. Cafes aplenty, but expensive. Paty time every night.

Stayed for 2 nights as part of a larger group

Location - lost on a huge avenue between Lijiang New Town and Shuhe- very very far from old town- NOTHING around the hotel (at least for 3 kms!)
Huge lobby (nice deco) big rooms - big bathroom- some foreign channels on TV- clean- free (cable) internet in the room- It was cold during my stay and no heathing (did not work) bed vry very hard
Food wise- for westerners very limited offer on buffets (breakfast and dinner)
As always in Yunnan - staff doing theire best (but visibly lack of training)
Not an interesting hotel for travelers who come to discover Lijiang and it's surroundings

Known now as Wonderport International Hotel. This is a sprawling large hotel with beautiful rooms and great views about 2km outside of the city center. The Old Town historic district is located about 10 minutes away, a $1.50 taxi ride. Hotel is very open with large lobby area. Staff is very attentive. Rooms are spacious and in very good condition. Large breakfast buffet is offered with many Western and a large variety of Chinese foods. Airport is 28km from the city and a shuttle bus to the city is $3.00 and a taxi about $35.

Small exercise room, indoor pool with cold water. Spa is also available but we did not use this amenity. WiFi is available in the lobby and LAN is available in the room. My wife & I spent two nights here in October 2011and would stay again.

Loved the view of the hotel room, with Jade Dragon mountain in the background, and trees and flowers in the near. There was a raining day during my stay, and you can just hear the beautiful drippings of the rainfall. The meeting facilities are pretty good as well. The two things I was not happy are 1. No ATM machine on-site. Finding an ATM in the old town is not easy and I rather get money ready in the hotel; 2. TV in the guest room is still the old CRT type. Giving TV is so inexpensive these days, the hotel certainly should think of upgrading.

Just a $1.00 taxi ride from Shuhe Ancient Town, and about $1.50 to Lijiang Ancient Town, Treasure Harbour International Hotel is a true 5-star Chinese hotel, a real treat. The hotel is beautifully decorated, with waterfalls filling the two-floor lobby, spotlessly clean throughout - both in the rooms and throughout the hotel, and with an exceptional staff who, though having little or no English, are eager to please, and really bend over backward to make your stay a great one.

ROOMS - We booked an Executive Room, which was very large, featuring a large desk, mini-bar with fridge, bathtub, tropical rain shower, and cable TV with several English channels including HBO. It had a balcony overlooking the wetlands with mountains behind, and was very nicely decorated. The bathroom is beautiful, but enclosed in clear glass, so if you are not an exhibitionist, you will probably feel uncomfortable. Everything is in clear view, shower and toilet. No worries, though, you can just ask the staff for a curtain to put over the glass for privacy. The bed is very hard, as is typical for Chinese hotels, so keep that in mind if you have a bad back, but the linens were nice. Hair dryer in the room, iron and ironing board available, laptop sized safe. They brought us fresh flowers and fresh fruit for our room, a very nice touch. We booked through CTRIP and paid about $100.00 for the executive room, breakfast, and airport transfer.

LOCATION - It is just a short taxi ride to anywhere in the area, and taxis are so cheap - we didn't feel at all bummed that we weren't staying in the Old Town. It was only a few minutes away and taxis are always readily available. Nothing is really within walking distance of the hotel, but no need to walk anyway when taxis are so cheap. Shuhe Ancient Town was about 3 minutes away, maybe 5 minutes to Lijiang Ancient Town.

BUSINESS - Free broadband (wired) internet in the room, computers in the lobby, wi-fi in the lobby. Speeds were pretty good. Large desk in the executive room, plenty big enough for 2 computers. Large conference rooms and business center, seems a great place for a conference or for business travelers.

SERVICES - Laundry service is available - they give you up to 50 RMB free, but that only lasts you through about 2 shirts. Then it is really expensive after that. A full load would run you about $60.00. Room service is available. Breakfast buffet was decent, featuring both Chinese and Western food with an egg station. Western restaurant was just ok, didn't try the Chinese Restaurant though it looked nice. Travel agent is available, but nearly no English is spoken here, so you will have difficulty finding information about the town or booking any tours - plan in advance before arriving for the best experience. Free Airport Transfer is provided one-way with your room booking - the transfer was in a comfortable mini-van, and the driver was right on time. The usual services like free shoe shine are available as well.

STAFF - We enjoyed the staff so much. They speak almost no English, but they are all so nice and friendly, always smiling, really going out of their way to provide you with everything you need. Just have patience when you need to explain something or ask about something - use visual aids and body language, and you'll be fine. We were never not able to communicate what we needed, and they were always patient with us, and tried very hard to help us have a nice experience. There is English information in the rooms, and English menus at the restaurants, so it's easy to point to what you need.

They are building what looks like a giant fountain out front of the hotel, looks like it will be really nice when finished.

We would definitely stay at Treasure Harbour again on our next trip to Lijiang.
