TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We stayed at a pool villa at the Banyan Tree for 4 days on the weekend of July 8. Positives: The location is quite excellent (short 10 min walk to a smaller shopping/bar area) and the landscape/environment is superb and serene. Negatives: In our villa, when one person is using the shower (hot water), no one else can use the toilet or shower or use water lest you change their temperature. The management blamed their older facilities but given that this is standard in any house built after the 90's let alone a 5 star (very expensive hotel and resort), it's extremely disspointing. Management said that the whole complex is like this. We also found Wi-Fi to be extremely spotty and slow (another big let down considering it's a 5 star at expensive rates). Lastly, during our stay we found a cockroach and a millipede inside the house. Not a huge deal, but again not worthy of a 5 star hotel and this price. Management: They said that there was nothing they could do for all above as all facilities had the same water, Wi-Fi problems and they offered a 20% discount at their restaurant for our problems. Suffice it to say, this didn't exactly make me feel a lot better. Conclusion: If you've stayed at any other 5 stars (Intercon, Westin, Hilton, etc...) and have an expectation of what a 5 star means, then this Banyan Tree will disappoint. If none of the cons above is an issue, you may much enjoy this location.

We stayed in a jet pool villa for a long weekend over Dragon Boat Festival. The individual courtyards provide great peace and privacy for the guests. We did several tours through the hotel and found the price point quite reasonable. Tour quality was excellent, as was the English proficiency of our guide. I was unaware that many people stay a few days in Lijiang before continuing on to the Ringha Banyan Tree via hotel car. This seems like a fantastic option and I am somewhat sad we weren't able to make the trip. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay anyway. Service was quite good. James, in particular, was always helpful and a delight to talk with. Upon his suggestion we attended the Beer Festival/BBQ at the resort. Food was terrific and the live band was truly amazing. Overall, another nice Banyan tree stay.

Our room is a villa, equipped with a massaging pool and the view of the Yu long mountain. Fantastic view and service. Location of the hotel is in the center of most of the tourist sites. (E.g. Shu he town, li jiang town, and the Yu long mountain) Go for a try if you have a chance!

Amazing Hotel. The scenery can not be describe, you must experience it. A perfect place to relax and enjoy the mountains and fresh air. Villas for families are very comfortable mine had a jet pool which was perfect for the cold. Amenities fragrances some of the best. The whole ecological programme caught my attention. In room dinning ok. Highly recommended.

I spent about 300 nights in hotels each year and this has to be one of my top 5. The view, the services, the food, the location...all top notch with little room for improvement. It was simply a wonderful expereince to stay here for a quick few days get away. The only complaint is that the bed was too soft, it is time to get new mattress.
