The road to the resort is so bad and it took us more than 2 hours to drive a way of only 45 km,but it was worthy after we saw this wonderful spa resort beside the clean lake of Yangzong. The villas were mixed with both Bali and traditional Chinese styles. It looks still not outdated even though it was designed 10 years ago. The staff was well tranied and very friendly, especially the spa therapists were very experienced and skillful, who were definately the best in mainland of China.

This hotel was by far the best hotel during our trip in china - The villas are very beautiful, decorated with a lot of taste - The villas are in the nature and it is very peaceful - The villas smell good (we only felt that in this hotel in Yunnan, everywhere else there was a bad smell) - The Jacuzzi is nice - The food was amazing, the best food we ever tested during our trip in China - The staff was nice, and even if most of them don’t speak English they really try hard to be helpful There were some little mistakes but after 3 weeks in China we really understood that these little things were nothing compared to all the other problems we met in China - The swimming pool was not heated and was in fact totally useless but obviously this is a Chinese concept, everywhere we had a private pool, they were not heated…. - The hotel is just in front of a Power plant, and it really waste the beauty of the landscape. To conclude, the hotel was very good, if you go near Kunming, try this hotel, for us it was clearly the best we have done in China.

The Brilliant Resort near Kunming (still 1hour from the (old) Kunming airport and nowhere near the city) has only spacious villas, tastefully furnished, with private hot and cold outdoor pools and any luxury you can wish for. Everything is in top condition, well working and clean. The villas are set in a lush tropical garden. The resort features a gym, a spa and restaurant with local and a (very limited) choice of international dishes. Service is friendly and attentive but often clueless even if addressed in Chinese. No English. The location is a nightmare, on a lake next to a power station. The lake water is incredibly polluted and the air smells bad. The rate for a Villa came down 10 percent from the rack rate after some negotiation, but is an outrage seeing the air quality and location. If you want to spent time in a luxury tropical resort, get on a flight to Thailand for the real thing! However, as a businessman from Kunming who wants to entertain some friends, this might be it: A villa can easily host 20 people.

We stayed for one night at this hotel in the middle of a three week private tour in September 2011 with Oriental Travel of London. It was one of the highlights of our holiday as we were upgraded to a villa with private pool and hot spa pool which was a pleasant surprise as otherwise would have only been given a room in the main building. The hotel is on the banks of a lake but the villas are in a private complex amidst lush vegetation A taste of how the other half live! Afternoon tea was served at the villa, and breakfast and dinner were served in a small intimate restaurant. The staff were extremely attentive, although the check out was long. Definitely the place to go relax - but at a price! Convenient for the Stone Forest .
