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.

The privacy of the hotel location is very good, the concierge will take the initiative to help with the luggage in the lobby. Can see the snow mountains directly. The hotel also has a wide range of breakfast categories. I think it is a very great hotel under Banyan Tree Group. Perfect experience!

We have chosen this hotel because of its relaxing and beautiful nature surroundings! The mountain completes the backdrop for this beautiful hotel. Lay Zhong has been very helpful for taking care of our specific needs (quite room, excursion to the mountain). The whole staff is actually very friendly and helpful as well. Once again thank you for the hospitality! See you again soon in the future!

When you enter the courtyard of the hotel, you have a fantastic view of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain towering above you. A lake and pagoda on the resort grounds make your picture perfect!

The service was very good and attentive, even if people do not speak much English. The room is very nice, new and the beds are very comfortable. Even though the grounds are quite large, it is never crowded and a perfect retreat from busy Lijiang Old town.

If you are looking for a hotel close to town, though, this is not the right hotel for you. But if you love nature and quiet, this is the best place to be. And from here it’s closer to Jade Dragon NP than from the old town.

We wanted to enjoy a luxury “stop and go” stay after a one week trekking in Shangri-La area and after another one around Lijiang. We did book a Villa Pool House to enjoy amenities. What a deceptive moment. On top of poor service and poor “à la carte” choice, we could not enjoy the private pool as system was not functioning. Answer from top management : “sorry the hotel is 15y old”... Conclusion I highly not recommend to go as not the Banyan Tree standards despite a beautiful room

This was my 2nd family trip to Lijiang & my first experience with Banyan Tree. My choice for Banyan Tree Lijiang is because of its webpage description that it's strategically located near Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. It is indeed true on its location the moment you arrive at the hotel premises. Then we were given the villa location which we can see the mountain the moment you open your bedroom door. Simply Fantastic! Besides my kids find the breakfast experience very fascinating cause you're having your meal with peacocks, ducks & then can feed fishes too. In short a wonderful Summer Holiday for the family.

Dear Valued Guest, Warm greetings from LiJiang! Thank you for choosing to stay at Banyan Tree Lijiang for spending a comfortable and peaceful holiday here. The hotel is located at the foot of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, and the landscape design inherits the essence of local Naxi culture and Chinese garden architecture in Lijiang. The concept of "one scene one step at a time" is embodied everywhere in the design of small bridges, luxurious forests and bamboo, green walls and black tiles. All of these create our amazing resort. There are ducks, fishes, turtles, peacocks and other cute creatures all around the hotel. You and your kids can meet them casually and spend a relaxing and happy parent-child time. At the same time, the hotel also offers many interesting in-house activities for kid, such as baking, making scented candles and so on. Hopefully, we will have a chance to welcome you back to Banyan Tree LiJiang and create you a wonderful stay again in the near future! Best regards, Angela Huang | General Manager

I will highly recommend to book a room from Mountain View. Banyan Tree Lijiang may be the best hotel with snow mountain view in Lijiang. Everything is so nicely designed with local Naxi ethnic minority touches from architecture, and greenery. People are very friendly too!

Warmest greeting from Banyan Tree Lijiang! Thank you so much for your unreserved compliments! It’s a privilege of Banyan Tree Lijiang to witness the enchanting view of the snow mountain from every corner of the hotel as it’s just one hour drive between the snow mountain and us. It’s our honor that you loved the design of the architecture and greenery. If you come back in the next season, you will see another side of Banyan Tree Lijiang. Still elegant the architecture is, but with all the trees sprouting and blossoming. Look forward to meeting you again in the sunny and flamboyant spring! Wish you have a happy new year Angela Huang| General Manager

this is my first time to this brand's hotel,because of its reputation,I choose this hotel during my trip to LiJiang with my family.but it is really bad experience!!!!!
I checked in just after 3 PM,but told I have to wait 15 minutes to get my room card.
but I waited over 30 minutes without any notification,then I called them 2 times and wait another 30 minutes to get my room card!!!!
just Imagine I wait outside my room over 1 hour with my 2 child,old parents and 3 large luggage.
In the end I just received one word "sorry",nothing else.
that is the "Banyan Tree" service.
hope my experience could give you some suggestion!

Hi David, We went to Lijiang last month and find it bit chilly to stay out after sunset. We had our usual dinner at the restaurant trying out the local Yunnan and Naxi delicacies. Banyan Tree served a fine course of dinner and you could also try the hot pot in this season. I did not try the moonlight pagoda dinner then. You may want to bring some warm clothing to put on in the mornings and evenings. Hope I've answered your questions. Cheers!
