Banyan Tree Lijiang

Lijiang is just an hour's drive from majestic Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, where ethnic minorities maintain their ancient traditions. The UNESCO World Heritage town is known as the Venice of the Orient, due to its lacework of canals and cobblestone streets. It is in this setting that the Banyan Tree Lijiang offers a truly tranquil escape. Local culture has inspired the rich design and décor of the luxurious suites and villas, including traditional curved roofs and a palette of red, black and gold. A lavish spa pampers the senses, while varied fine dining experiences satisfy the appetite. The focal point of the resort is an ornamental pond with a tiered pagoda that can be reserved for romantic moonlight dinners for two.
