A far cry from the hustle and bustle of modern Chinese cities, Lijiang is an ancient retreat set in beautiful valleys with a truly traditional feel.

The Intercontinental Resort continues its traditional charm in its selection of rooms and suites that combine the essence of Lijiang with every comfort of modern luxury. Taking inspiration from beautiful local design the decor of the rooms provides sophisticated clean lines and a unique sense of place. This sense of place is further captured in the expansive lobby with floor to ceiling windows that frame the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain in the distance.

There are three lovely restaurants at the Intercontinental Lijiang which offer a choice between Asian Fusion cuisine at Basil Leaf Restaurant, the true flavour of traditional Chinese dishes at 7 Colours and a chance to unwind and relax in the Lobby Lounge over cups of tea in the sunbathed atrium with panoramic views of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain.

After days exploring the rugged countryside surrounding Lijiang you are welcomed back to the hotel with an enormous heated indoor pool in which to relax and a fantastic Tea Tree Spa with an extensive treatment list.
