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. The room (ours was on the top floor looking out onto the Yulong River) had a very comfortable bed, good sized closet and an en-suite bathroom with shower and a few...

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...

We are in the midst of a 5 night stay here and really could not have been happier. To start, the staff has been wonderful. Everything from helping to arrange transportation, bringing our luggage to the room, chatting with the kids, arranging tours...everyone has been very friendly and everything has gone like clockwork. The view is great, the rooms are...

Just left the wonderful Yangshuo Mountain Retreat. We were not disappointed by all the previous reviews. We had a double King room, with river view, that was majestic. The rooms are very comfortable (the beds...a little less), but clean with great AC! What makes this hotel stand out is the service and the food. Everyone who works here is so...

I can't recommend the retreat highly enough - if you are going to be in the Yangshuo region - you HAVE to stay here. 1) Firstly, as you can see from the photos - the retreat is situated right on the river in a beautiful spot. it's incredibly relaxing waking up in the morning and looking out on the river...

We stayed here as part of a private China tour for 3 nights. I would say without doubt it was the most relaxing place we have ever stayed and will always remember the stunning views. The restaurant is lovely, it's old fashioned internal decoration adds to the character of the place. So glad we opted for this.

We stayed at the YMR for 4 nights in May. The hotel is eco friendly and quite simple, but very clean, comfortable, friendly and is ideal for a chilled out stay in a completely wonderful location on the riverbank, amongst the Karsks in unbelievable scenery and a totally relaxed ambience. We had struggled to decide whether to stay within Yangshou...

The location is all, make sure you get an upstairs river view. Plain, unfussy accommodation (a better bed would be appreciated), the staff can´t be bettered. Restaurant food got a little bit samey. Just grab a bike, cycle the paddy fields to the Dragon Bridge, lunch on a pontoon, and negotiate for a downstream, weir bouncing, bamboo punt back home...

We had a wonderful experience at Yangshuo Mountain Retreat during our trip to China. It was our last stop before returning to USA. The staff was more than helpful, attended to every request, set up day trips with guides, etc. The accommodations are simple and comfortable. It is a very relaxing place in the middle of the karst mountains...a unique...
