With the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain to the south, the Banyan Tree Lijiang stands as an oasis of luxury in the peace of rural China. Ample accommodations and an award-winning spa are the hallmarks of this retreat, bringing a touch of the Venice of the East to the edge of the Lijiang wilderness.
The layout and construction of the luxurious Banyan Tree Lijiang Resort villas echoes Lijiang’s iconic canals and architecture. Interiors decked in gold, red, and black, sweeping roofs, and views of the distant mountains blend together to create a haven of old-world charm and modern opulence. Each villa features its own private garden, plush lounge, and generous bath with separate tub and shower. Villas with private whirlpools and heated swimming pools are available for guests who value additional amenities, and a variety of duplexes provide extra room to sprawl and bask in the beauty of the serene location.
Tastes from the orient and all around the world are experienced with the resort’s culinary offerings. Dine at Bai Yun for fine Cantonese or sample local and international dishes at the indoor/outdoor Ming Yue cafe. If secluded dining is preferred, indulge in a splendid six-course banquet during a private Imperial Feast, enjoy a custom menu at the Naxi-style Moonlight Pagoda, or simply take dinner in your villa’s private garden.
Find a completely holistic experience at the Banyan Tree Spa, with centuries-old Asian techniques and exotic herbs and spices waiting to enrapture each guest. Mind and body are also pampered at the fitness center, with a state-of-the-art gym and relaxing yoga sessions available. Beyond the resort facilities, the surrounding villages and scenery beckon. Spend a day afield and take in the natural beauty of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain or Tiger Leaping Gorge, or venture into Lijiang to experience the city’s medieval charm.Request Information
