For the third year running, The Bivou has been selected as one of the Best Small Hotels in China on TripAdvisor! And we’ve stayed at the #1 spot for all of 2015. All of us are simply over the moon. We couldn’t have done it without your support. Thank You!
The Bivou has a mixture of designer rooms and suites clustered around two lushly landscaped courtyards, as well as a fully self-contained villa perfect for a family. Our flexible layouts can accommodate the most intimate escapes, or larger gatherings and celebrations.
We are perfectly located to take advantage of a mind-boggling variety of natural and cultural attractions. From the ancient village spring right at our doorstep, to the virgin snow peaks of Yulong Mountain. Add to this a kaleidoscope of local minorities, and fresh seasonal cuisine, and you have the start of a very rich journey.
The Bivou is a boutique facility designed to host events for 10-40 people. Set within the rich cultural fabric of Lijiang town, surrounded by stunning natural landscapes that are both tranquil and majestic, the lodge is a perfect base for group retreats. Choices abound for activities ranging from the spiritual and meditative to the physical and adventurous.
The Bivou’s intimate style of service is specially suited to creating an adventure experience that fulfills your needs. For visitors new to the region, however, The Bivou has also carefully crafted itineraries and packages that are designed to bring together the best that Lijiang has to offer – all at special prices.
At the core of The Bivou’s philosophy lies sustainability with a heart. From the start, we worked closely with local villagers, using their ancient building techniques to keep our rooms insulated. And the harvest from our organic gardens goes right to our kitchens.
