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. So maybe things have changed/improved in the past 8 months, but certainly did NOT live up to my expectation in December. First, the good. Staff....
