Banyan Tree Lijiang Hotel

Echoing traditional Chinese architecture and the local Naxi culture, the Lijiang Banyan Tree will give you a sense of serenity and well-being.

You’ll be able to feel the influences of both the Han and Tibetan civilisations as you stroll through water gardens towards the Moonlight Pagoda. You will be charmed by villas with oriental red, black and gold décor and traditional, upturned tiled roofs. You will delight in the panoramic views of the majestic Jade Dragon Snow Mountain.

The Banyan Tree also reaches deeper into your soul. It has superb restaurants to replenish you. And a garden concept spa using centuries old healing techniques to inspire you spiritually, mentally and physically.
