this is my first time to this brand's hotel,because of its reputation,I choose this hotel during my trip to LiJiang with my family.but it is really bad experience!!!!! I checked in just after 3 PM,but told I have to wait 15 minutes to get my room card. but I waited over 30 minutes without any notification,then I called them 2 times and wait another 30 minutes to get my room card!!!! just Imagine I wait outside my room over 1 hour with my 2 child,old parents and 3 large luggage. In the end I just received one word "sorry",nothing else. that is the "Banyan Tree" service. hope my experience could give you some suggestion!

Regarding the delayed check in, we are very regretful that we couldn’t have a clearly communication with you, as our concern, we have tried to mitigate this by providing 1 room first to let you and your family to have a rest and wait for another room to be done as you had 2 rooms under your booking. Unfortunately we couldn’t create an alternative choice during this peak season and couldn’t meet your satisfaction as well. However this is not an excuse and we are acting on these issues immediately. Our Front Office Manager is on top of this ensuring that the team both the front service and the housekeeping team double their efforts and retraining in need areas you have highlighted.

We wanted to enjoy a luxury “stop and go” stay after a one week trekking in Shangri-La area and after another one around Lijiang. We did book a Villa Pool House to enjoy amenities. What a deceptive moment. On top of poor service and poor “à la carte” choice, we could not enjoy the private pool as system was not functioning. Answer from top management : “sorry the hotel is 15y old”... Conclusion I highly not recommend to go as not the Banyan Tree standards despite a beautiful room

This was my 2nd family trip to Lijiang & my first experience with Banyan Tree. My choice for Banyan Tree Lijiang is because of its webpage description that it's strategically located near Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. It is indeed true on its location the moment you arrive at the hotel premises. Then we were given the villa location which we can see the mountain the moment you open your bedroom door. Simply Fantastic! Besides my kids find the breakfast experience very fascinating cause you're having your meal with peacocks, ducks & then can feed fishes too. In short a wonderful Summer Holiday for the family.

Dear Valued Guest, Warm greetings from LiJiang! Thank you for choosing to stay at Banyan Tree Lijiang for spending a comfortable and peaceful holiday here. The hotel is located at the foot of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, and the landscape design inherits the essence of local Naxi culture and Chinese garden architecture in Lijiang. The concept of "one scene one step at a time" is embodied everywhere in the design of small bridges, luxurious forests and bamboo, green walls and black tiles. All of these create our amazing resort. There are ducks, fishes, turtles, peacocks and other cute creatures all around the hotel. You and your kids can meet them casually and spend a relaxing and happy parent-child time. At the same time, the hotel also offers many interesting in-house activities for kid, such as baking, making scented candles and so on. Hopefully, we will have a chance to welcome you back to Banyan Tree LiJiang and create you a wonderful stay again in the near future! Best regards, Angela Huang | General Manager

I will highly recommend to book a room from Mountain View. Banyan Tree Lijiang may be the best hotel with snow mountain view in Lijiang. Everything is so nicely designed with local Naxi ethnic minority touches from architecture, and greenery. People are very friendly too!

Warmest greeting from Banyan Tree Lijiang! Thank you so much for your unreserved compliments! It’s a privilege of Banyan Tree Lijiang to witness the enchanting view of the snow mountain from every corner of the hotel as it’s just one hour drive between the snow mountain and us. It’s our honor that you loved the design of the architecture and greenery. If you come back in the next season, you will see another side of Banyan Tree Lijiang. Still elegant the architecture is, but with all the trees sprouting and blossoming. Look forward to meeting you again in the sunny and flamboyant spring! Wish you have a happy new year Angela Huang| General Manager

I together with my friends (4 adults and 2 kids) stay at 3-bedroom villa in Banyantree Lijiang. The awesome view and outstanding service made our holiday something to be remembered. I had no doubts everyone will be struck by the stunning view of the snow mountain when walking into the lobby, just like us , no one can’t help taking out mobile phone to take lots of shots. In the following days I spent most of time in our villa to enjoy the tranquil time: sunshine, tea, reading, BBQ and relaxing except one trip to Shuhe Ancient Town, which is just 10 minutes walk from the resort.. In addition to the fantastic view, the friendly/helpful staff and outstanding service is also make our stay so memorable. We had several meals here, the food quality and service are unbeaten, fresh vegetable, specially cooked yak meat hotpot, Mixian (some kinds of noodles mixed with more than 10 ingredents), yummy! Staff always serving with sunny smiles especially Rose, vey considerate!   The last but not the least, the Banyan Tree spa, totally relaxing! I would like to come back for no more other reason.

Warmest greeting from Banyan Tree Lijiang! Thank you so much at first for recognizing us from the environment, services, food and SPA etc., which is highly appreciated by all of our associates! Banyan Tree Lijiang itself is like a small ancient town - a miniature Lijiang. Staying in it, you can feel yourself merging in the serene atmosphere and everything slows down! A hotel can be the destination of a journey sometimes. Thank you for your nice compliments and look forward to your next visit! May you have a happy new year ahead! Angela Huang| General Manager
