In July 2011 my family of four spent about five days at the Mountain Retreat and it was the highlight of our three-week trip to China. The setting is really stunning -- we looked out our balcony each morning and had beautiful river and karst mountain views. Stunning -- like a picture postcard. We were also very impressed with the...

I am writing this late - but still needed to write about our super stay here. It was in December 2010 and after a wonderful 4hour river cruise we arrived to the melee of Yangshuo wondering what we were going to find - but we needn't have worried. This is an oasis in a maelstrom - the setting, the upkeep...

After living and traveling in China for the last 8 months we understand the challenges that hospitality business owners have to deal with...especially those that are trying to offer an authentic experience with western amenities at a good price (not to mention green practices!). We just stayed here for 4 nights and it was an absolute delight! Everything that others...

While the location is out of the main city, the gorgeous view and serene atmosphere more than makes up for the 30 yuan taxi ride into town. The rooms are great, and the staff is exceptionally helpful. They can help plan any activity for you to do on your own or with a guide. The restaurant is also very good,...

I spent two nights at this resort on a last minute trip to Guilin/Yangshuo. The hotel was about 10 mins away from the main tourist area (town center) but that's what I loved most about this place. We spent most of our time in and around the resort as the facilities were great. One drawback was the food & drink...

We stay there for 3 days and it was really more like a retreat then a hotel. First of all, the view is just stunning. I can just sit by the river with great food and watch the bamboo rafts go by. The staff is very friendly. The 3 of us took the bicycle tour with the hotel guide and...

We had a triple room with view of river - beautiful! Large comfortable room, large bathroom, comfortable bed. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The surroundings are beautiful. You can walk or ride a bike. But bicycles in the hotel are in poor condition. Beware of tires and brakes! At the reception you get a map of cycle routes....

We stayed in this lovely hotel for a week in Dec 2010. After a hectic few week sin Beijing, Shanghai and Chengdu, arriving at the YMR was total relaxation.

This is, without a doubt, the nicest stay we've had in China. The staff are all very friendly and speak English quite well. The food in the restaurant is not too expensive, quick to come out of the kitchen, and delicious (we recommend the 铁板牛肉 - beef skillet!). The rooms are immaculate, the bathrooms are spacious, and the views of...

Unique and breathtaking scenery, great access to the Yulong River, extremely helpful and kind staff who were clearly happy to be working in this environment, excellent food with a referral to a sister restaurant (Italian food) that was very good. The bonus is this place is committed to the environment and their practice reflects that--free purified water was always available...
