By Magaly • Feb 5, 2013 • Selected Work
The Banyan Tree Lijiang Resort is located in the city of Lijiang, China.
The city of Lijiang breathes history – its Old City Center is a UNESCO Heritage Site – and the resort does its best to reflect it.
Banyan Tree Lijiang Resort in Lijiang, China:
“Banyan Tree Lijiang was awarded Best Luxury Hotel and Best Spa Resort in China at the 2007 China Hotel Starlight Awards. Located 2,000 metres (6,500 feet) above sea level in the heart of China and 40 minutes away from Lijiang Airport, Banyan Tree Lijiang is 15 minutes from the historical town of Dayan. The majestic Jade Dragon Snow Mountain acts as a backdrop to the South.
Banyan Tree Lijiang is a resort built on the principles of traditional Chinese architecture and the local Naxi culture. You will find the design similar to local homes, sharing the characteristics of both Han China and Tibet civilisations in this land.
Each Villa is furnished in the local style with rich russet and gold tones and traditional sweeping roof designs. Banyan Tree’s thoughtful touches and quaint local objets d’art will transport you to a place where you can leave the world behind.
Relive the ancient Chinese saying ‘To own a plot of land under your feet, and a piece of sky overhead is the ultimate luxury’.”
