We stayed two nights at the Banyan Tree and were very pleased. Our room was on the second floor with amazing views of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. The property is so pretty, particular the central courtyard with a beautiful pond and pagoda. The view of the mountain is fantastic and this hotel positions itself perfectly to take advantage of the...

What a great experience for my first Lijiang trip. Hotel is at the great location and staff are nice. If I will go to Lijiang again, I am sure I wil stay this hotel. For this trip, the rate of the room is very good.

Just amazing! Pure luxury in a natural environment. 5 stars accommodation with 5 stars customer services. Do book the villa with outdoor spa pool as it is heated and feel awesome during winter season. The complementary hi-tea has a decent selection and is pretty delicious. Dinner can be very expensive though. But steam-boat beside the fireplace is a must try....

Dear Guest, thank you for taking the time to post your comments regarding your recent stay. Great to read of your positive experience, although I am a little puzzled regarding the breakfast comment as we recently introduced a three day cycle where at least 25% of the offer is changed on a daily basis. None the less I am glad...

This hotel was our first stop on a journey up to the Meili Mountains and it was very good. It helped us acclimatise and ready ourselves for a tough and exhausting journey ahead. The food was pretty good and the breakfast was outstanding, with a huge choice of food on offer. The staff were first rate and a pleasure to...

I enjoyed staying in banyan tree lijiang. Especially the spa. That's the best part in this resort. In addition, the view of hotel also amazing. That's the reason I chose here.But the only thing I want to complain is the staff quality.

Our group of 7 stayed at Banyan Tree Lijiang for three nights and it was an outstanding visit. The rooms are the best available in Lijiang and the service, facilities and food/beverage were all absolutely top notch. I have been visiting Lijiang since 1995, and Banyan Tree still has the charm and low key elegance that was so enchanting about...

We visited Banyan Tree Lijiang for 3-night stay as we attended a wedding there, and it was our first time in the city. The hotel is located outside of the hustle & bustle of the town, which for us was a plus as we could unwind and relax (it’s not easy to find places that you can wake up with...

I had very high expectation of my Banyan Tree stay before booking my Yunan trip, however, I was truly disappointed. I have been quite busy this year so finally got around to write this review.
