'A peaceful place to rest and refresh'

The Lily Pad inn is conveniently located and just a short 5-minute walk from the center of Dali town.

The inn consists of two neighboring buildings garnished with nice gardens which are typical of the local bai-minority style. The rooms are clean and comfortably furnished and available for rent by the month, week or day.

We have two styles of rooms: modern and the other is the traditional bai minority style which means it is decorated to offer 'a peaceful place to rest and refresh'. The guest rooms are spacious and clean with comfortable handcrafted furniture and decorated with antiques. Large windows look out over the mountains offering scenic views of Erhai Lake, Dali's #3 Pagoda and Cang Mountain.

Our guests stay connected with Wi-Fi and unlimited access to our complimentary high speed Internet connection.

We use mountain spring water everyday and you may start the day with healthy and refreshing fresh cow milk.

Regardless of your preference to travel solo or join one of the several travel groups our friendly and knowledge staff are always on hand to offer advice.

Our family style group meals is an excellent way to join in on the everyday festivities, narrate your travel tales and share and seek advice.

We wish your stay be pleasant and memorable.
