Hotel Description

There’s no real resort-or-explore tension here — you come to Lijiang for its century-spanning history and textbook natural backdrops, not for any particular luxury hospitality experience. Not to disparage the tried-and-true Grand Hyatt formula, mind; there’s something to be said for high-end brand consistency wherever it hangs its shingle, and you certainly can’t accuse them of rejecting all local convention. On the contrary: though the hotel occupies two locations in the sprawling Jinmao Whisper of Jade Dragon retail complex, it’s the actual Jade Dragon Snow Mountain profile that commands attention around here. And no injection of Western affluence could outshine nearby Shuhe Ancient Town, home to multiple UNESCO World Heritage Sites amid an enchanting maze of cobbled streets, canals, and the region’s distinctively tiled roofs.

A special debt is owed to Lijiang’s tradition of Qing Dynasty woodcarving, traces of which make striking appearances throughout the décor. Dark, richly grained woods elevate the furniture and fixtures in the hotel’s 300+ rooms, suites, and private villas, a warm and glowing counterpoint to the wealth of patterned fabrics in the carpets and bedding. Contemporary elements — music docking stations, flatscreens, Nespresso machines, free hotel-wide WiFi — temper the air of antiquity, while the spacious bathrooms offer a respite for the weary with separate rainforest showers and jetted tubs. Each room also sports its own balcony overlooking landscaped gardens, the lake, or straight-from-myth mountainscapes. Higher-end accommodations sweeten the deal with dedicated concierge service and access to the Club lounge for complimentary breakfast and evening cocktails.

Traditional architectural cues predominate in the public spaces — geometric lattices, panels, beams, textiles, and tasteful stone tiling — especially the cavernous dining facilities, serving a staggering array of cuisines at all hours. Of particular note is the very straightforwardly named Chinese Restaurant, highlighting rare Yunnan delicacies, and the Tea House, situated at the center of lake for some of the property’s finest views. Wind up at the Lobby Lounge’s fireplace for an outdoor nightcap, marveling at the elegantly wrought lanterns reflected in the lake’s tranquil waters.

Of course, it wouldn’t be the Grand Hyatt without the full suite of on-site amenities, including all manner of massage and beauty treatments at Jing Spa and a 24-hour fitness center with heated pool, sauna, gym, and refreshments. Don’t short yourself on the excursion front, though, as there’s nothing quite like the immersive, history-laden plunge into Old Town. Rent a bike at the front desk and have yourself a good, old-fashioned, GPS-less jaunt among the backpackers and thrill-seekers there.
