The Brilliant Resort near Kunming (still 1hour from the (old) Kunming airport and nowhere near the city) has only spacious villas, tastefully furnished, with private hot and cold outdoor pools and any luxury you can wish for. Everything is in top condition, well working and clean. The villas are set in a lush tropical garden. The resort features a gym,...

We stayed for one night at this hotel in the middle of a three week private tour in September 2011 with Oriental Travel of London. It was one of the highlights of our holiday as we were upgraded to a villa with private pool and hot spa pool which was a pleasant surprise as otherwise would have only been given...

The spa at the resort is amazing especially the hot pools which is world class. Massages are quite expensive (1000 yuan approx) but there are one or two cheaper...

The websight of the hotel seems to indicate that all the rooms are top standard. In fact, there are two wings and the one where we got our rooms was certainly not of the SLH standard. However, the front view was beautiful even though a walk through the hotel garden exposes a construction site on one side and a coal...

Just want to drop a line as people always discount "China domestic hotels". We all know why but it is not fair to Brilliant Resort & Spa if it is perceived the same way. This resort is no less than Banyan Tree or any international luxury resorts in the world. I am so overly impressed not just with the villas...
