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 😉😉😉

This is our first taste of a Banyan Tree resort. We were most impressed. We arrived to find we had mixed up the dates. The reception staff promptly and courteously contacted the booking site for us and requested an amendment. We were given a room but at a much higher. We agreed to pay the difference. As compensation the hotel upgraded our room and gave us complimentary afternoon tea. We were grateful to Angela Liang at the front desk who handled the situation with much tact, patience and cheerfulness. Other staff members were as helpful and friendly. The hotel facilities were first rate. We were happy with the breakfast and lunches in the hotel. The garden was lush and well designed. All in all the hotel lived up to its name as the best in the city.

The triditionalsetting and the snow mountain facing location of the hotel makes it beautiful, breath taking in fact. Unlike the busy Lijiang old town, the area is quiet and peaceful, a small village is about 5 minutes walk away which is perfect for our family to take a after dinner walk, in where we also booked our tours. Well, there were not many service or facilities in this hotel, compare to the other international resorts. The little gardens in the villa were where my family enjoyed the most, (with the tea sets provided by the hotel) a pot of tea, lit up the incence, family time when the sun was setting. Overall I have to say, good experience, it was just a little pricy.

Rooms are traditional Chinese decor, black and red lacquer furniture. Rooms are a little dark particularly if you don't want to open back curtains to the patio/terrace. Hotel grounds are nice but you can be a ways from the lobby/dining rooms. Hotel is located a short walk from a nice town that is more charming and less hectic than Lijiang Old town. Staff good but most don't speak English so if you had an issue you might need more than one attempt to get it solved (but it would be). Good breakfast with local specialties.
