Banyan Tree - Lijiang

Located just 15 minutes from the old town of Lijiang, with its many cobbled streets, winding canals and quaint bridges, Banyan Tree Lijiang is the perfect base from where to relax and explore this lovely part of the Yunnan province.

Each of the 55 luxurious villas are set in their own private garden and have been decorated and furnished using rich russet golds and reds, typical of the region. Choose from villas with a heated outdoor jet pool, heated plunge pool or heated swimming pool, from where you can enjoy the magical views of the towering Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. Other facilities include 6 spa treatment rooms, a gym and a tennis court.

There are a choice of restaurants - including the Bai Yun, which serves authentic Cantonese dishes - and the stylish Wen Hai Bar for cocktails.

Why we like it
