High up on a plateau in southern China, Banyan Tree Lijiang offers seclusion and luxury in an exotic destination far off the beaten path.

Enjoy a number of unique cultural experiences attached to this property.
Pastel flowers and lush greenery surround Banyan Tree Lijiang Resort & Spa, but towering peaks are just a short trek away. A visit to the 5,500 meter (18,000 feet) Shanzidou peak is a must-do, as is a scenic tour of Lijiang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The culture of the local Naxi people inspires the architecture that gives the resort its exotic appeal. Each of the 55 rooms and suites at Banyan Tree Lijiang is a blend of Far Eastern design and modern flat-screen, in-room-dining luxury. Step out into your private garden or onto your balcony for an incredible view of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain.

Of course the exotic doesn't end with the decor. The Moonlight Pagoda dinner will have you dining on flat rice noodles with yak meat, in the open air beneath a traditional Naxi-style pagoda. Or visit the Chinese banquet hall for a more raucous atmosphere fueled by the local plum wine.

Beautiful hotel and location

Hotel is generally excellent however we were disappointed by Ming Yue restaurant (Western + breakfast). Bai Yun restaurant is very good. Service was great, appreciated upgrade. Rooms are beautifully decorated, good attention to detail (e.g. electric heating mattress at spa and in the room, generally good design), good amenities.

Banyan Tree Lijiang Resort & Spa is in the southern Chinese province of Yunnan. The city is located along a trade route that was once part of the historic Silk Road from Yunnan to Tibet. The closest major airport is Kunming International, with a short 40-minute flight taking you from there to Lijiang Airport. From the airport, it's approximately 30 minutes by car to the resort.
