The China Travel & Meeting Industry Awards were organized by Travel Weekly, with a judging panel formed by leading experts and professionals from the tourism industry.
The InterContinental Lijiang Ancient Town Resort formally opened its doors in February 2015. The strategically positioned, design-inspired hotel celebrates the finest of traditions of China and South-East Asia whilst providing modern, well-appointed facilities.
Mr. Ernst Mayer, General Manager: “The InterContinental Lijiang Ancient Town Resort is perfect for the world travelers of today who share a passion for travel and seek out authentic experiences whilst appreciating refinement. We are also deeply honored to receive such an excellent rating.”
As the newest member of InterContinental Hotels and Resorts, the rebranded InterContinental Lijiang Ancient Town Resort offers a rich garden environment landscaped around local fishing and living traditions and tasteful architecture in keeping with Lijiang-style. Inside the hotel, local Naxi Dongba motifs and symbols are creatively applied and fused whether for sculptures, Chinese courtyards or general design. Cuisine ranges from the Seven Colors Chinese Restaurant, Basil Leaf’s international menu including South-East Asian and Western dishes, barbeques of local-style dishes to simply sipping Pu’er tea in the Green Tea Lounge. The result is an environment of understatement – discreet, welcoming service and symbolic gestures which ensure guests are truly looked after, whether travelling for business or leisure.
