This is truly a magnificent spot to soak in the scenery, relax away from the hustle that is China. We stayed for 3 nights in a room overlooking the river and the limestone mountains in-between our 2 week tour of China. Clean rooms, fresh sheets, balcony, A/C. Shower and toilet more than adequate. Toilet paper to be thrown in freestanding...

We chose sto stay here during our China trip to have some quiet downtime for a few days. This place was just perfect for this. Very quiet in an eco friendly hotle right on the Yulong river. Our rooms overlooked the river and the magnificent Karstes. The staff were attentive and spoke very good english as owned by an American...

Outside the hussle and bustle of Yangshuo, this little inn on the bank of the Yulong River is big on service and spectacular views of the karst mountains towering over the valley. The rooms are well appointed, the service is superb, the chinese food great and local. But don't be fooled, this resort is not for everyone. It's 8-km from...

We stayed with my parents during Chinese New Year in this lovely resort. The service was really genuinely fantastic and always with a smile. There is only 10 rooms so even full you will always receive the same level of service. Rooms are well equipped and I advise you to book one with river view and balcony. It was a...

We visited here late last year and agree with the comments from other reviewers. We booked the wrong rooms but they were perfectly adequate next time I will ensure we get River view. This is not a luxury resort but gives you a wonderful experience in a beautiful setting. I rarely would give 5 stars but this one gets it....

My partner and I stayed here early October 2012, and I can happily say it was one of the highlights of our China holiday. We took a taxi from Guilin airport as it was Chinese National week and we didn't fancy fighting for buses. We were very glad we did as traffic ground to a halt near Yangshuo as the...

My friend and I stayed here during Chinese New Year in 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed the venue and the entire experience in Yanhgshuo. The lodge rooms were clean, comfortable and well heated. The lodge staff were super friendly and very knowledgable with hints and instructions on what to do and how to do it. The other guests were friendly and...

We moved her from Village Inn and were delighted with this hotel. Great river views, cosy lounge area with a log fire and easy to organise day trips and activities. The staff were really helpful and spoke good English. The rooms were very clean and nicely decorated with local furniture. The food was very tasty too.

I almost hate to wax on about this place because if I ever return to Yangshou, it will be so booked solid, that I’ll never get in. But to be fair, this for me, is the place to stay in Yangshou – It’s about 8 K out of the city which is fine by me as one 2 hour visit...

My husband, daughter, and I stayed at the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat for a week last June and had an amazing experience. Everything about the YMR was perfect, and the staff (especially the lovely Angel) were outstanding in every way. We explored downtown Yangshuo and the surrounding area and appreciated all the opportunities that YMR arranged for us. I can't think...
