Found at the foot of the fantastically named Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, Banyan Tree Lijiang decorates the already mesmerizing landscape. Its regal combination of traditional style buildings and modern-day luxury perfectly evoke a romanticised sense of a bygone kingdom; specifically that of the Nashi (also sometimes referred to as Nakhi) people.

Rooms here are palatial in their own right, borrowing from elements of Nashi architecture such as perfect symmetry, elegant pillars and subtly carved poles. Here you can absorb panoramic views of the legendary Jade Dragon Snow Mountains from your plush king-sized bed, as well as bask in the beauty of your carefully tended private gardens, relax in the private outdoor heated pools and individually tailor your comfort with a thoughtful pillow menu. Rooms are decorated with dark woods and red hues, known in China as the traditional symbolic colour of happiness, and a stay here is sure to instil such a thing.

Dining here is just as perfected as the hotel’s aesthetic, atmosphere and luxury. Here you can indulge in the best of the local cuisine in the hotel’s two restaurants, or enjoy a unique gourmet dining experience in a pagoda under the moonlight.

Here you can indulge the senses at the Banyan Tree Spa, enjoy a class of yoga, along with a range of guided tours of Lijiang by both bike and foot, or revitalize with a game of tennis on the on-site courts that benefit from a breathtaking backdrop of the mountains.

Guests can also visit the Banyan Tree Gallery, which is filled with an enchanting collection of handicrafts, resort apparel and signature spa amenities, letting you take a little piece of this tranquil paradise home with you.
