TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 2 days ago

We stayed for three nights in a Jetpool Villa (villa is highly recommended over regular rooms). Service: While the hotel itself is fantastic, the staff makes it stand out. The entire team was increadibly attentive but also friendly, knowledgeable and open for a chat. I have never before known the names of virually the entire hotel staff. A great team by international standards, above and beyond by chinese. Room: Our villa was amazing. Direct view on the Snow Mountains, perfectly heated hottub and super comfortable bed. Temperatures were around 20°C, so we enjoyed being outside in the yard. We had an in-villa BBQ. The team set up a beautiful table and loads of highest quality meat and fish. We chose to grill ourselves and thus had a very intimate and luxurious evening. Hotel: The hotel itself is beautiful, with a good location in walking distance to Shuhe Old town. The Spa met our high expectations. The Yunnan food in the restaurant was excellent. After 2.5 years living and traveling in China (mostly in good hotels), Banyan Tree Lijiang tops the list of our favorite hotels

We stayed for 3 nights and it was fantastic. The villa was great and so is the staffs. The most memorable got to be dining at the pagoda. We had hot pot on a cold night n Eric was very attentive throughout the meal. He make sure our bowls and cups is never empty. The kitchen even make an extra effort to add pumpkin to one of the desserts as I make a comment to one of the staff. Breakfast is an enjoyable affair with Sharon around. She knows all the guest and shared her knowledge and recommendations with us. She showered us with much care and concern. She even make us a packed lunch on the day we check-out. We had a memorable stay.

We’re now enjoying the sunshine in Angsana, Ihuru of Maldives but still relishing the time we had in Lijiang. Our family was invited to Banyan Tree, Lijiang as part of the Community Rewards Programme. Before our arrival, Angela worked out a neat itinerary for us for our short retreat. We arrived there on the 10 Nov and stayed for two nights. The weather was great and surrounding views were magnificent especially we could see the snowy mountain of Yu Long. The villas were also located near to the ancient towns which visitors can truly enjoy the bustling life of the locals. Angela took us to the exceptional tour to A small town of Baisha in which we met with the oldest doctor, Dr. He, in Lijiang, or perhaps in China. For those who had kids, a good family outing would be taking pony rides roaming along the mountains of Lashi and not forgetting a boat ride to take some photos to fill in your photo album or instagrams. Our trip had an unfortunate incident where my son had a mild stomach virus infection on the second night. The hotel staff took note and quickly arranged a car to the best hospital in town. Our chauffeur, Mr. Tim He, assisted us to register and fix an appointment. He went to a great extra mile of service by patiently waiting for us till my son completed his drip and collected his medications. Though we were unable to fully enjoy our time this time round but Tim’s dedicated service speaks for Banyan Tree by itself. This is the reason we always pick Banyan Tree. We were enthused by all the staff’s warm and professional services. Hope we could enjoy our times here again!

This is the second time my family of four stayed at Banyan Tree Lijiang and we were so well taken care of, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Strongly recommended! The 2-bedroom villa with mountain view and heated jet pool was spacious and comfortable. When we were not out doing touristy stuff, we were happy to stay in villa to soak in the heated jet pool, or play Monopoly Deal and drink some rose tea. We also walked around the expansive grounds instead of taking the buggy, so as to see the local trees planted around the resort. The spa is to-die-for! My therapist Betty was thoughtful and suggested heated sesame oil for my Balinese massage. Perfect for the cold and dry weather! The buffet breakfast at Mingyue Restaurant has a wide selection that pleased everyone. From cheeses, egg station to wild honey for toast, and local delights. My personal fave is the 米线 (noodle soup)。 Overall a memorable stay and we will be back!

只是短短的三天两夜住在丽江悦榕庄,很快的即将退房前往下一站,感到依依不舍。 美丽又壮观的玉龙雪山景色,以及Bruce, Christina, Peter, Azure...的照顾,让我真想住久点儿。。。长居也不错。。。 这是少数中的其中一间,很少品质及服务毛病能被我挑到的。。。佩服佩服。棒极了!!! 1. Ricky Liu (Arrival Airport Driver) - He is a very senior and knowledgeable associate who was able to introduce Lijiang and tourist spots or activities for guests confidently. 2. Alan Li (FO Assistant) - He shows his confident and checked me in steadily. Smooth checked in process with a warm welcome and always a great smile on his face. 3. Bruce Meng (EAM), Christina Luo (DOHR) & Peter Ye (DOFB) - A very warm welcome by these 3 top management was really a very delighting surprise. Really a "WoW". They ensure my transport in & out, room, meals are all well taken care of. 4. Tim He (Bellboy) - He assisted me with luggage and offered me for villa orientation. He able to introduce the villa confidently. 5. Villa Attendant #222 - Unfortunately I'm not too sure the name of my Villa Attendant. He/She cleaned the villa neatly and flawless. No defect in the washroom, bedroom & living room. Bravo! 6. Azure & Adam (Asst. LM & Resort Host) - Great "tour guide" and good recommendation for dinner @ Old Ancient Town near to resort. Very localised food with authentic scenery and environment. Yummilicious! 😊😊 7. F&B Waitress (Unfortunately I was unable to get her name) - a tall lady with spectacles and bunned her hair neatly on duty during my stays (breakfast period) very friendly, eye for detail and attentive. From my observation, she cleared the soiled plates and cups very fast. When she saw a guest trying to move a set of cutleries from inside the restaurant to outdoor, she immediately offered assistance even through her hands full of soiled plates. Another situation whereby she has set the kid's cutleries with babychair and the guest changed table. She immediately moved the setting to the new table without showing impatient attitude. One more situation whereby while she was clearing my soiled plates, she realised that my tea was cold and she immeditely changed and served me a pot of hot tea. Great anticipation & self-initiative. Peter Ye has also demonstrated a great example to the team. A  consistent great smile and engagement with guests during breakfast! 8. Chefs - The varieties of breakfast selections were so delightful. From pastries to congee, from local steamed bun, dimsum, soya bean milk & fried dough to hot dishes, from selections of fried eggs to hot soup noodles. So many tasty food for breakfast! 9. Edward Guan (Bellboy) - He was the bellboy that impressed me alot as he started conversation with me while delivering my luggage from my villa to lobby for check out. He roughly know my background and trying to check my staying experience at BT Lijiang and my next destination. Great initiative to engagge conversation with guest even though the journey was less than 5 minutes. He is friendly & approachable. 10. Roger Li (Driver to Shangri-La) - He is another senior and experienced driver of BT Lijiang. He is also very friendly and very knowledgeable. He was able to introduce and engage conversation with me on the way to Shangri-La. Conclusion: A very memorable and great staying experience which I will be sharing with my friends and family via social medias too. I will be back again 😉😉😉
