“Everything is Excellent!”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

my group of 36 paxs stayed at the villa from 13-17 May. We have among ourselves 17 villas.
The service given was top-notched; from the moment we check-in, it was seamless & fast. The resort pre-check in us & also gave us a listing of our villa for ease contacting each other.

We had a dinner on 16 May in 1 of the 3-br villa. The setup by the resort was simply fantastic.
Despite having a tight budget to work with, the resort has very kindly accede to our requests & demands & make it the best dinner we had during our stay.

The staff friendly & attentive.

Stayed two nights in CP and one night in Banyan Tree during our trip to Lijiang. This Banyan Tree comes with same concept of the chain, you will find usual amenities inside the rooms as other Banyan Trees. Stayed in a Villa and it is fabulous. Spending the time by the tample and lake within the resort during the day is recommended if you are not busy going exploring Lijiang.

A peaceful sanctuary that is conveniently located a 10 minute walk from Shu He Ancient Town. I woke up to views of the magnificant snow-capped Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. I almost refused to leave the room cos I loved it so much!

We stayed in a Villa at this resort. We were met at the airport by the hotel driver. Checking was simple and we also organised our activities we the resort team with ease. A driver and guide was organised for our stay and sojourns from the resort. Our room was immaculate. We enjoyed excellent food and service. The view of the mountain from our room was stunning. We did have near perfect weather which was a bonus. We could not fault our stay at this resort. Our guide, William, was excellent. Overall we were amazed and the efficiency and ease of serving we received. Despite us making late night last minute changes to our plans the team at the resort simply made it all happen.

Room Tip: The Villa watery nice

I joined my family to Yunnan Province and as they had other plans my friend and I booked the Banyan Tree Lijiang for two nights. From the arrival until we left we were inspired by the nature, peace combined with the attentive people who looked after us. The views, beautifully maintained landscape, excellent weather were incredibly awesome.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who needs some energy boost and attention.

My sister and I stay in the lovely one bedroom villa for 4 nights.. It is in a unit by itself with entrance gate, private yard and its own jacuzzi with lounge chairs. Outside the villa unit, the beautiful grounds with trees and ponds along the walking path provides a serene and peaceful environment away from the hustle and bustle of the old towns outside. We get up early in the morning , take a walk to breathe in the fresh air and get ready for the tour of the day, At dusk, a stroll along the garden path, with the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain as the background, is as releasing as you can get in this historic town. Our villa is right behind the front office, so walking to the front entrance, the restaurants, the bar is quick and easy. The breakfast has wonderful choices that include flavors from different parts of China, the buns and dumplings from the North, small dim sum type dishes from Canton, spicy Szechuan foods, famous local Yunnan noodles, and cakes,, as well as Western pan cakes, cheeses, various type of breads, eggs cooked to order, bacon, ham, sausages, the usual. Dinner is at a different restaurant with a beautiful pond in the middle of the building. Menu includes many well prepared dishes. A good and healthy way to taste the famous local flavor using fresh ingredients with skilled culinary art. We contacted Lily Zhang of LiJiangXinTuo, as recommended by several reviewers of Tripadvisor. She arranged all the tours to the old city, the Lijiang Impression (a must see, and worth the extra cost to get the VIP seats, so you don't have to fight the huge crowd to get in and out , sit at the center stage with no one waking back and forth in front of you ), trip to the Jumping Tiger Gorge and visit local villages. She also arranged the airport transfers. We later found out, there are plenty of taxi to go to airport, and from the Lijiang Old City to the hotel. You must bargain to get a good price though if you do not wish to use the meter. Service at the hotel is impeccable. Front desk manager made extra effort to solve my problem with the cell phone using local SIM cards. When I called about my i phone 5 not able to fit the docking station (like most hotels, they are still using i phone 4 models), the hotel asked me what kind of music I like, and deliver numerous CDs for me to listen to. While we were touring the Old Town, we also check out the grounds of Crown Plaza and we believed we have made the right choice staying at Banyan Tree. Even though the villa is a bit pricey, it is worth every penny of it. We have stayed in many luxury resorts in different countries, this is definitely one we will come back to visit again.
