Don't choose Banyan Tree if you do loads of sightseeing . Given the costs involved in staying here, as in all Banyan Tree resorts , they are best maximised if you stay within the hotel to enjoy its inhouse ambience and facilities ! The surrounding mountain view; waterways and pools throughout the resort is incredibly relaxing and peaceful . However,...

Dear TanClan, Interesting comments! I have never looked at it that way before... But thank you for the kind comments about our property. Perhaps a balance of local touring to Shuhe and Baisha mixed with some relaxation in the Spa? Hope to see you here again one day. Kind regards, Nigel Fisher General Manager

The villa with indoor jacuzzi is awesome. Although the room itself (not including the front yard)is not very large, it is very private and people from outside could hardly look into the villa and jacuzzi. Basically you can be naked in the jacuzzi but I didn't... We can see the Jade Dragon Mountain from our view on the first day...

A resort blessed with such a magical view of Jade Dragon Mountain has a challenge in matching its setting - and this one surely does it brilliantly. The quality of food, service & facilities are top class, thanks to personnel always doing their very best for you. Ms Marvel, in charge of accommodation, was particularly attentive.

We were there in December 2015 for a 2 night stay. The entrance was surrounded with construction hoarding for their new Cassia resort. Hence, the grandeur was compromised. The weather was cold without snow. Just enough to freeze a thin sheet of ice in the pond. Furnishings were luxurious as BT would do for most of their resorts. Though the...

Dear Audrey, A belated thank you for your review. I agree Lijiang really is a beautiful part of China and our location next to Shuhe old town is very special. Next time you visit you must go to Baisha which is only a short taxi ride from the hotel. It is full of Naxi cultural experiences and gives a glimpse...

We previously stayed here about 5 years ago and I'm happy to say that the hotel has maintained and even improved its standards. Furnishings were in very good condition. We had a 3 bedroom jet pool villa although we ended up not having time to use the jet pool which was kept at warm bath temperature. Note that master and...

Hi Dominique g, My apologies for the late reply to your post! Seems you had a great time at both our properties! Happy you enjoyed the Experience. For our readers, the Tibetan Mastiff is called "Lanka" which means Blue Sky in Tibetan. Ask the associates about taking him for a walk! A truly memorable experience. Thanks again and I hope...
