Banjan Tree Lijiang Hotel, China

Banjan Tree Lijiang Hotel, China

On the Northwestern Yunnan Plateau  lies the ancient capital of the Naxi Kingdom, Lijiang. At 2,400 metres above sea level this may be the last place any traveler would expect a luxury resort.

The mountain town made of stone and tiles provide an intimate setting for the hotel. Lijiang is full of houses as old as its wrinkled cobblestone along with canals of natural spring water. This setting is a perfect location for the award winning hotel.

The hotel is a true representation of  the legacy of the legendary Naxi Kingdom. The stunning villas and suites are all inspired by the stunning views of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. The red interiors are perfect compliments to the exotic grey brinks and pink stoned exterior.

If time permits you ti visit this place don’t hesitate to dive in their heated pool that allows you to swim in crisp weather. Once you take a dip in the pool you can enjoy the spacious study, bedroom and bathroom that offer scenic views of  mountains and a glowing sunset.

The hotel is only 40 minutes away from the airport making it an easy destination if you ever consider on visiting China. For the traveler who is willing to try new things and add to their list of places traveled then this is the perfect destination for you.
