Reviewed 23 February 2014

We visited the Lijiang area over spring festival - we could not believe how touristy and busy it was. Baisha Resort was truly a world apart. Peaceful, quiet, relaxed. The hotel is aesthetically pleasing, a traditional older building that has been beautifully cared for. The staff were fantastic. Having already spent some days closer to the center of activity we were perfectly happy to enjoy the quiet and tranquility of Baisha town. The hotel location is great, just one block from the very small ancient village, so walking to restaurants and shops is easy. We rented bikes and had a great bike ride out to Jade Dragon village. The only small disadvantage is that it is some distance from the main tourist center of LIjiang, and we had a little trouble getting a taxi to agree to take us there for our first night. During the day there is excellent, frequent local bus service between Lijiang and Baisha.

I'd heard Lijiang was overly-touristy, but I didn't understand how bad it was until I'd seen it for myself. It's an endless supply of over-priced hotels, cafes and shops. I paid 160 for a sub-par room in Old Town. The next night, I paid 120 to stay at Baisha Holiday Resort – a paradise. You get a truer sense for the community there, with the Naxi Embroidery center right down the street and very friendly locals on every corner. There are cafes and local-flavor restaurants in walking distance, and other villages and sights can be accessed via a quick ride on the No.6 bus. The rooms themselves are comfortable, with heated mattresses, soft robes and towels, hot showers and traditional furnishings. I got so much more for less money here.

For the best advice on what to do in the village or how to get to your next destination, ask the owners Charlie or Bruce, or one very helpful young lady at the front desk named Rita. She loves to travel and hike, too, so her advice was perfectly suited to me!

Room Tip: Rooms start at 120RMB/night, but I found every price level to have comfortable rooms.

We loved this hotel -- definitely different from the generic concrete and glass Chinese hotels. We were welcomed warmly to the hotel by Rita and staff, sharing delicious meals with them. Thank you so much. We had a great view of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain from our spacious and beautifully furnished room. If you want to stay in a quiet, pleasant, interesting hotel out of the busy centre of Lijiang, this is it!

We chose to be away from the crowds of LIzhang and try the smaller village of Baisha for a night. The hotel is new, clean and has a lovely ambiance in accordance with the local architecture and furnishings with appealing wood work and carving typical of this region. We felt it was great value for the money. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and sweet to us and assisted us with travel arrangements, translation etc...

This summer, I came to Lijiang with two friends. Baisha Holiday Resort was the place where we have stayed three days. I have to say, it's so fatastic and unforgettable. The location, the room, the food, the people there, all of them are best. But the most important is that, it was the first time I felt the real freedom and relax in my heart. I didn't need to think about the work, the relationship. I could see the Yulong snow mountain in my room. I was so surprised to see glistening white snow in such a summer day. There was a pretty girl who was unsophisticated and enthusiastic. She told me many things about Naxi Peole and the custom, as well as tought us some Naxi language which we were very interested in. What;s more, we happened to spend the Torch Festival. The 24th june of lunar calendar is the most ceremonious torch festival of yi nationality, so does Naxi. We had a very good time that night. We standing around to dancing, there was a big turch in the center. It was the first time that I found we can play so happily and self-forgetfully with the people you were not familiar. It was a homelike and fatastic resort and we had a pleasant time.

The hotel picked us up at the airport and welcomed us late night. we were upgraded to a room upstairs. The room was nice and had a big bathroom. We especially liked the shower area with the lights heating up the area and spacious. But the water was either burning hot or cold. There is a TV but never worked not that we really needed to watch TV. We really liked the beautiful Chinese style (NanXi) environment with a view of the Yulong snowy dragon mountain. As the other customer mentioned the kitty there was very playful and cute.

However, please be aware the hotel will try to pressure you to visit the Embroidery Institute nearby and purchase their art products. I think the hotel is getting a commission by selling the embroidery arts. They were too aggressive. I don't like that at all.

Also, we are not sure where Charlie the owner is even though we received all the emails with his signature on them.

In my opinion, it is a nice countryside hotel with a local flavor but if they want to open their doors to the international customers they have some work to do.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the Second floor

Let me start by saying that this establishment is beautiful in every way. I was so excited when the host showed us our beautiful rooms (rooms 203 and 204). The grounds are beautifully kept, and they had a charming kitten that the kids loved to play with. Free wi-if was also a plus. However, in room 203 there was a foul odor coming from the bathroom (forgot to mention that the bathrooms were gorgeous too. Very modern and huge). At first, it wasn't very strong, but during the course of the day, it got worse. I didn't want to change rooms, however, by dinner time, the smell was overwhelming. I asked to switch rooms. They gave me room 204 which wasn't as nice, and only had a king sized bed. Since it was only for one night, we dealt with it. When I talked to the receptionist, she said "maybe, they didn't clean the bathroom." We kept our luggage in room 203, and early the next morning, I caught the receptionist showing that room (with all our luggage in it) to another couple. I rushed over to make sure that no one took any of our belongings while they looked at the room. It would have been more appropriate if they had asked me first before doing so. I also noticed that after we took our luggage out of room 203, the housekeeper did not change the sheets in that room (my son took a nap in that room prior to dinner).

Considering that there were former complaints about the smell in the bathrooms, you'd think that they'd get it fixed. The smell seem to come from the sink, and smelled like a sewer. Our stay would have been excellent if it weren't for the smell. The staff all spoke English, and we did enjoy the grounds, but I can't give this hotel an outstanding rating.
