Best place I ever stay in Liqiang. The service is prompt and good. It is entirely different feeling from the business hotel or resort. I slept well the whole stay. Should have planned to stay more days.

Perfect. Resort is quiet and peaceful and it really seems like you are away from it all at the foot of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. Stayed in the 2 bedroom plunge pool villa. The best thing about this resort is the location, if a restful getaway is what you are after. Fantastic view of the mountain range . In house...

This hotel is very beautiful and has a wonderful view of the jade dragon snow mountain . We went on a tour organized by the hotel concierge up to the mountain and it was well conducted and reasonable . Cherry blossoms planted outside the villas make a most picture- perfect scene. Our villa had a private hot spring which I...

Banyan Tree Lijiang is located about 10 minutes walk from Shuhe and we can see the YuLong Snow Mountain from every corner of the hotel. Room is quite spacious but the twin beds are quite small. It offers a huge selection for breakfast. Overall, it was a quite pleasant experience. Highly recommended!

We stayed at the lovely Banyan Tree Lijiang a few months ago, they had the most fantastic tea set in the room, I loved the loose dark Chinese tea leaves, does anyone know what tea that is ? It is a great, quite hotel, very tranquil. Kept the Banyan Tree standard, well done

Dear Guest, The Tea you enjoyed is the famous Pu'er tea from south Yunnan. There are many providores. It should be available in good tea shops. Sincerely Nigel Fisher General Manager

A wonderful hotel, with a excellent atmosphere, excellent location and wonderful garden, the room is well made and absolutely romantic just the stuff must be better maintained (the wardrobe,the tv and the doors are a little bit old). The bed, the tea choice and the toilet product are excellent.

Generally able to uphold its brand name but a pity that when we went in January, it was too cold to use the pool in our villa, though it could have been heated up (after several hours of heating). Buffet breakfast is rather sumptuous with Chinese, Continental and Japanese cuisine available. They even provide Shangri-La honey, definitely an exotic find....

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to post your comments on line regarding your recent stay with us. I have noted your comment regarding the temperature of the pool. It does take a little while too heat, especially when it is -2c overnight... We are looking to add booster heating later this year when we get the funds....

The first impression is absolutely good, nice location, good interaction of check in, the house seems nice. But we were absolutely disappointed by every detail served. Sense of service is poor, the stuffs and decorations are rough. My living experience was very bad. It's a 5 stars appearance but only a motel's substance

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.
