Hot List 2007

Banyan Tree Lijiang, Lijiang 


Tel: 86 888 533 1111

Banyan Tree's new outpost in southwestern Yunnan Province is a Himalayan retreat 6,500 feet above sea level, with 55 villas facing the glacial peaks of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. High stone walls encircle this compound of interconnected private courtyards, where roofs with upwardly curved tips emulate the style of the Naxi culture, best preserved at the nearby UNESCO World Heritage Site of Lijiang Old Town. Bath amenities are surprisingly unexceptional for this resort chain closely associated with the sybaritic spa experience, but beds are pampering, powerful showers stand up even to the winter chill, and each room has an outdoor hot tub or a plunge pool. Bai Yun, its refined Chinese restaurant popular with local dignitaries, offers healthy steamed dishes that accommodate the resort's overseas clientele. A three-tier wooden pagoda, intricately carved and surrounded by weeping willows hung with red lanterns, creates a dramatic public space. The Banyan Tree Spa Lijiang is included among the 2007 Hot List Spas.

Amenities: Pool, Spa, Tennis
