Banyan Tree Yangshuo

Located alongside the Li River with a spectacular backdrop of mountains and karst limestone peaks, Banyan Tree Yangshuo is built in a local style to sympathetically blend in with the remarkable surroundings.

The 142 suites and villas offer views of the central pagoda lake, the river or the mountains and some have a private balcony or terrace. The outdoor swimming pool occupies a superb location overlooking the Li River and the choice of restaurants serve a wonderful array of regional specialities.

WHY WE LIKE banyan tree yangshuo

Banyan Tree is the perfect place to stay, away from the bustle of central Yangshuo yet right in the midst of stunning scenery. Sitting on your private terrace as the river runs alongside and the sunsets over the karst limestone peaks is magical.

The Li River is the heart of this area so it really is a must to spend some time on the water; be this bamboo rafting, river kayaking or a river cruise. Visit a local village where age-old artisan crafts still exist, explore the area by bicycle, explore hidden karst caves, trek the Karst Mountains or spend some time shopping in nearby Yangshuo. The town of Fuli is also home to the art of fan painting and it is possible to try your hand at this ancient art.


Located in a rural location approximately 20 minutes from the riverside town of Yangshuo.
