Brand Banyan Tree speaks for itself in terms of the design, the location, the privacy and simply the overall resort is perfect. Some room for improvement in terms of food / breakfast services. If you are looking for a quiet, secluded place to stay, this is it. Walking distance to the Shuhe Old Town.

The temporary breakfast set up will go back to normal as of the 21st January. Perhaps next time you will have a more favourable food and beverage experience? Sincerely,...

The Banyan Tree Lijiang is a very nice hotel property, with manicured gardens and beautiful villas. The mountain view is beautiful, and the location close to Shuhe provides nice promenades, entertainment and restaurants options within walking distance. The staff is friendly, their level of English is limited but they always try to help, with a smile. I would strongly recommend...

We book the spa suite and it is two levels, with the spa beds and facilities, we are able to enjoy the spa in our suite. The location is also ok as it is just 15 min to LiJiang Guzhen by car and just 10 min walk to Su he guzhen

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.

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...
