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

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.

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

Dear Guest, Happy to read you enjoyed your spa duplex experience. This is a relatively new offer from us and so it is pleasing to read you enjoyed it. Our proximity to Shuhe and also Baisha is a plus since there are fewer crowds than in Lijiang old town. Kind regards, Nigel Fisher General Manager

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. The view of the mountain is fantastic and this hotel positions itself perfectly to take advantage of the...
