We stayed at Moondance for 2 nights and had a wonderful time exploring Yangshuo. We are coming from Shanghai, so it was a very nice escape from city life. Pros: - Location: I loved the remote location of the resort, especially after visiting the bustling downtown area, I was really happy that we opted for this hotel. It's a perfect... More

The setting is quite surreal, so beautiful and tranquil, yet complete with all the boutique hotel luxuries, excellent food choices, superb customer service from Susan, Roland and the whole team. We absoutely loved this place! You can't really go wrong with a perfect setting amidst such fine scenery, but we were genuinely impressed with the accommodation and the friendly, personal... More

We had a lovely time at Moondance and attribute to our great vacation to how comfortable we were there. We stayed 6 days, kind of a long time for Yangshuo, and we didn't do many excursions (it was October break for China so the traffic was terrible) so we spent several days at the hotel, doing bike rides or hikes...

My husband and I spent one night at Moondance Boutique Resort and we were pleasantly pleased. The resort is quaint and cozy. The staff spoke some English, were friendly and staying there was like having an extended family.

A very pleasant small hotel beside the river a few Kms from Yangshuo. Easy taxi access for the city (not expensive). Staff in the hotel speak excellent English and are very helpful and organised. The hotel offers an activity list and will arrange these for you. Pleasant, well appointed rooms. A very nice small pool and a pleasant seating area... More

The hotel is located about 20 min from the city of Yangshou with wonderful views of the surrounding Mountains as well as the Yulong river. The staff, lead by Susan was extremely friendly and eager to assist with every little detail. One day we borrowed bikes from the hotel and spent 4 hours exploring the area. This was a true... More

I stayed at Moondance September 5 and 6, 2014. The hotel is only 6 miles outside Yangshuo and a few miles from a main road but it feels like you're deep in the country. We stayed in Room #305 Stairway to Heaven. The room had a loft with a queen bed as well as two separate twin beds in the... More

We stayed for four nights in this hotel at the end of our Chinese trip. We arrived at night, after many days staying in five star hotels. We were tired and our first impression was not the best one. The next day in the morning we realised we were wrong. It is a small hotel, not five stars but it... More
