When looking for a hotel in Yangshou, this property ticked all the boxes for me. Recently renovated, great views and within walking distance to town I was expecting a lot and this hotel delivers. Myself and 2 friends stayed in a family room, Chinese design, which was beautiful. Two single and one large bed, very spacious with lounge area and...

Dear Traveldestin, Thank you so much for your kind words. We are working really hard to get everything right and we are very happy with how things are turning out. The pool is almost ready with just a few more days before it is complete. I am so looking forward to jumping in once it is full of water. We...

AMAZING place: by far the best deal in Yangshuo. Crazy good views, excellent host (Alf!), delicious food, and a super quiet river location just a short way from the busy center of town. Really looking forward to visiting again when the pool is ready (they just finished huge renovations so everything is new).

Great location and views ! my Husband and I with our 2 kids stayed for a week - the Resort is a 20 minute walk to Yangshuo along the Li River - our rooms had views of the stunning mountain peaks and river - the Resort's breakfast was to die for with a wide selection and great for the kids...

Don't normally make these lengthy, but this was definitely an epic stay. I was recommended to this place from a buddy who has been to Yangshuo 5 times, and he introduced me to Alf the hotel owner. I was the first guest in his newly renovated hotel, which is beautiful. Alf is the man! Told me all the right places...

This is a lovely, clean, and quiet place to stay just outside Yanshou. We came from Guilin by boat and once off the dock, walked about a mile to the hotel. As we were there for the May 1 holiday, this place offered so much peace and quiet compared to central Yangshou that was about to burst with domestic tourists....

Yangshuo was one of our last stops on a 3-week tour across China and the perfect place for a few rest days (partly planned and partly mandated by downpours!). The suite we had on the 2nd floor was amazing: extremely spacious with beautiful views of the river and mountains from huge picture windows on 3 walls. Staff were very helpful...

Beautifully situated with a great scenary. We came here after weeks in big cities and enjoyed very much the calm and the landscape. Yangshuo and the river Li is a must in China. We hardly went into Shangshuo but, a part from river rafting and biking tours, stayed at the hotel, eat good food and walked in the area. Some...

We stayed here for three nights - for us it was lovely - a little out of town so it was quiet with great river views. It was being managed by an Australian guy and his family. At most I could have recommended a coat of paint in a few places but he told us that the week after we...

Dear Jonathan, Yes, it is a great shame that the Li River Retreat has to close. In the long run it will be for the better as the new building will be much better suited to being a hotel. We expect it to reopen sometime late 2016. In the meantime, we have setup what we think is a lovely option...
