Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a beautiful upscale lodge to relax at the foot of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. It’s about 30 mins from old town Lijiang, and feels remote, but mountain and town are accessible by Didi. The amenities are really nice including delicious breakfast, tea, fruit and night time dessert all included. The restaurant is excellent and we had a lamb pot one day and a spicy vegetable juice hot pot another night - excellent flavors. Minibar snacks and drinks included with the room; plush bed with L’occitane bath products. We stayed in a room in an attic (lowest cost room here for approx $170 US per night) which has very cool skylights (with shades that can be drawn shut for sleeping), although the toilet and shower space are very small with see-through glass. The service is very sweet and friendly - from the front desk to the restaurant staff, everyone is super accommodating. However, little English is spoken at the front desk and we had to book our own excursions so it can be challenging if you don’t speak mandarin. This is a super unique and beautiful experience though so worth adventuring here!

We stayed at Villafound Jade for 3 nights in large, spacious and very comfortable rooms. The location is picturesque to say the least with beautiful views from many vantage points. As foreigners travelling around China for two weeks this was by far the most comfortable accommodation we stayed at. The core character of the hotel is rooted in the Naxi culture, with very friendly service from local people and the opportunity to eat delicious Naxi cuisine amongst the wide variety of food choices. Generous afternoon tea and an evening barbecue were just a few of the many highlights. Facilities such as the billiard table were well appreciated. We had a fantastic time and will definitely try and return soon!

Located at the base of the grandiose Yulong Snow Mountain, Villafound Jade offers an exclusive, high class retreat for anyone who would enjoy a peaceful, indulgent atmosphere surrounded stunning scenery. The hotel integrates itself fully into the local culture of the Naxi people, employed to support the village, who also provide an insight into the authentic culture of these ancient rural people. The hotel offers a range of activities and excursions from wood carving classes to expeditions on horseback up the Yulong Snow Mountain. I greatly enjoyed my time here, an absolute highlight of my trip to China. I would recommend this hotel to absolutely anyone, with incredibly friendly English speaking staff to help Westerners like myself. In one word, fantastic.

Villafound Jade hotel provides a serene escape which is comfortable, beautiful and topped with marvellous architecture. The wide variety of food the hotel provides is beyond excellent and covers a mixture of cuisines from a western breakfast to authentic local Naxi dishes to please all appetites and taste buds (the Snow Mountain Fish dish is definitely worth a try). Other services the hotel provides are of the same standard: afternoon tea - a delicious array of fresh fruit and nuts and the laundry service which was quick and no-hassle (all we had to do was place the clothes in a laundry basket in our room for them to be washed and returned later). The staff even hanged all our clothes neatly for us! The hotel also organises an array of activities including a tour of the local Naxi area and its culture, a tour of the Old Town of Lijiang and a guided horse ride up the mountain which is an experience like no other. All trips were facilitated by English-speaking staff. Hotel staff were always friendly and harboured a community atmosphere making the stay very enjoyable.

We booked for two nights as part of a winter vacation to Dali and Lijiang. After 30 minutes at this beautiful hotel, we extended our stay and cancelled the final two days in Dali. The hotel is beautiful and immaculate. The staff is friendly and unfailingly helpful. The scenery, obviously, is beautiful, and the hotel is matched beautifully to the mountain above and the village below. (The village is a real treat: a museum to a prominent American who lived in Yuhu village for decades is worth a trip, but it is also admirable as a working ancient village: you won’t find tourist shops there, but you will see people living and working in a centuries-old village).

Villfound Jade has many good attributes; the concierge (Joe) is extremely helpful and was indispensable to us, who know almost no Chinese. He helped us see some great things in the area. The food is first-rate. Each of the staff was generous with us and our rambunctious 5-year old. We recommend this to anyone, but especially those who want a Lijiang experience a bit off the beaten path, but still accessible to non-native speakers.

We plan to return with family!

VillaFound Jade in Lijiang, Yunnan nestled at the base of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain is in such a gorgeous location. The onsite gallery was spectacular and is dedicated to all the Naxi that leased their land to help build the Jade VillaFound. The Naxi have been photographed and published in National Geographic. This was our favorite find on our travels across China. Many thanks to the excellent staff and especially Linda (manager) for making sure we had the time of our lives!

I would recommend Yu Lu snow Song House as not only a great resort but as an experience. From the first time, you arrive in the property to the very last you will be part of an unmatched experience, thanks to the staff who is always there to make your life in a very professional and lovely way. Concerning the resort the location is perfect the view and environment are just incredible. Rooms are comfortable, luxurious and the hotel offer a large range of facilities, we had incredible rest!! The team provides plenty of opportunities for activities that suit everybody needs with always nice insights on the region and culture.

We spend an amazing time and I highly recommend this resort.

After an enervating early morning flight from Xi'an, I stepped out of Lijiang airport, expecting to pay through the nose for a taxi to the cramped confines of an inner city hotel. Having not stayed at Villafound Jade before, I did not realise how flawed my expectations were! A hotel vehicle met me within in the airport car park, and the driver was quick to relieve me of my luggage and provide me with some much needed water. Half an hour later we arrived at Villafound Jade. The hotel is far from the bustle of Lijiang, and carries and ambiance of undisturbed seclusion, but within easy reach of the attractions of the old town and surrounding mountains.

Having arrived in China a week beforehand, it was much to my surprise and pleasure to find many hotel staff fluent in English, all ready and willing to organise excursions for the rest of my stay. Equally pleasing to the discerning Western traveller is the climate in which the hotel is situated. Though Beijing and Xi'an perennially exceed 30 degrees during the Summer months, Lijiang was a balmy 20 degrees, with levels of humidity akin to those of the English countryside.

Much like the staff and surrounding weather conditions, the hotel room did not fail to please. Mine provided an exceedingly plush double bed, flat screen television, a large bath and shower, a self-catering facility, and a mini-bar, stocked daily with complimentary soft drinks and snacks.

Though the rooms, restaurant, and amenities (pipe making workshop located on site!) make Villafound Jade a five-star mountain retreat, it was the staff who made this hotel my most pleasant stay in China so far. I was accompanied to the peak of the nearby 5,000m mountain (a trek far more demanding than a normal concierge's duties), educated and about the local Naxi people, given an guided tour of Lijiang's old town (done in perfect English), served traditional Yunnan tea, and fed local Naxi delicacies straight from the grill by members of the warm, welcoming, and wonderful staff at the Villafound Jade hotel.
