Think 'House of Flying Daggers' with room service and a fabulous wine list. Situated in the shadow of China's most monumental mountain-scape, Banyan Tree Lijiang combines the features of traditional Southern Chinese architecture with the luxury of individual bungalows arranged as private guest compounds.
The resort is situated 2,400 metres above sea level and offers spectacular views of the breathtaking Jade Dragon Snow Mountain
With magnificent Jade Dragon Snow Mountain as a backdrop, 700 year-old Lijiang has to be one of the most beautiful and well-preserved traditional Chinese towns. With its shiny worn stone paving, tiny curved bridges over centuries-old canals and original wooden panelled exteriors of the odd merchant quarter, it's the kind of place you could film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon without having to build any sets.
Each guest is spoiled with a bungalow built in the distinct form and style of Lijiang architecture - your own walled complex which adds to the pervading feeling of authenticity.
Offering options from both local Chinese and Western cuisines. Banyan Tree Lijiang have catered to the preferences of all visitors. Be sure not to pass up the opportunity to privately dine under a decadent pagoda in the resort.
Set in a traditional pavilion along a vast basin and reflecting pool, the bar is situated to take in the most spectacular view of the compound. A place to enjoy the magnificence of the surroundings.
