We would like to thank everyone at the hotel for making our trip such an exceptional one. We stayed twice, once at the beginning of our trip on arrival in Lijiang, and again at the end of our trip after touring Naxi Lake, Shangri La, Tiger Leaping Gorge, Potatso National Park, and Meili Snow Mountain. Both times we were overwhelmed... More

We, two families, arrived here with a great excitement not only for the reason that we thought we had a great deal through Travel Zoo but we had been longing for the name of Banyan tree resorts. The name should certainly stand for top end services and holiday experiences but our first dinner at the western restaurant certainly didn't pay... More

It's a great experience with Banyan Tree Lijiang. We arrived early without informing the front desk but they let us in immediately. We left clothes in the yard and left for sightseeing while it was snowing. We found the clothes in the room when we came back. It's considerable. Great facilities and services. Hope we can live in other Banyan... More

The resort offers the perfect blend of getting away from it all yet living in the lap of luxury. The villa we stayed in was beautiful: Chinese architecture with modern luxuries (like the private heated pool). I never tired of the breathtaking view of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain that took on a different character from sunrise to sunset. The... More

Banyan Tree Lijiang is truly a beautiful place. The service staff were great and they actually sent us a number of pillows for us to select despite it being in the cold. I like the touches of a lovely Chinese tea set with four different kinds of teas as well. Lovely amenities and great view of the mountain though one... More

We stayed for 3 days, which was just enough to tour the surrounding area. It was a wonderful place to come back to every evening after a full day out driving in this part of still undiscovered southwest China. People were shy but curious about tourists still. Everyone we met outside of the hotel, while language skills were not great,... More

Rooms are separate luxury cottages. Each has enclosed garden with pool and mountain views. Front of cottage opens to create open air environment. Extremely well furnished. Meals can be served in the enclosed garden. Outdoor lounge with reflecting pools. Very accommodating staff. We went for three days and extended for another three.

This was our first stay at Banyan Tree and their site at Lijiang certainly lived up to all expectations, providing a quiet place with spectacular views before the next day's adventures. The staff were most helpful and some staff had excellent English skills. There was a choice of restaurants and the usual spa and gallery options.

My husband and I stayed at Banyan Tree Lijiang for one of our stops on our honeymoon (we also stayed at Banyan Tree Ringha and Yangshuo, I did reviews for those as well). This property is conveniently located within walking distance to the old town of Shuhe, which we walked to several times during our stay. The larger old town,... More
