A luxurious resort in picturesque countryside at the edge of Lijiang. Most of the 125 spacious pavilions of traditional Chinese design are protected by high walls of rugged gray stone and open onto exquisite private gardens with jet or plunge pools.

A glowing color scheme of red, russet and gold creates a warm and seductive atmosphere enhanced by lacquered furniture and rice-paper lanterns.


A full range of modern amenities is complemented by exceptionally stylish marble baths. Indoor-outdoor Ming Yue presents a sophisticated menu of multinational dishes, while Bai Yun serves delicious Cantonese cuisine.

A sumptuous spa offers a wide variety of Asian and European therapies; also outdoor tennis court, yoga pavilion and gym with floor-to-ceiling glass walls.

Pastel flowers and lush greenery surround Banyan Tree Lijiang Resort & Spa, but towering peaks are just a short trek away. A visit to the 5,500 meter Shanzidou peak is a must-do, as is a scenic tour of Lijiang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The culture of the local Naxi people inspires the architecture that gives the resort its exotic appeal. Each of the 55 rooms and suites at Banyan Tree Lijiang is a blend of Far Eastern design and modern flat-screen, in-room-dining luxury. Step out into your private garden or onto your balcony for an incredible view of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain.

Of course the exotic doesn't end with the decor. The Moonlight Pagoda dinner will have you dining on flat rice noodles with yak meat, in the open air beneath a traditional Naxi-style pagoda. Or visit the Chinese banquet hall for a more raucous atmosphere fueled by the local plum wine.
