Located a few km outside Yangshuo, the Secret Garden was really a highlight in our trip! The hotel is beautifully designed, with a lot of taste which sets an accent on traditional chinese architecture and combines it with modern comfort. The service and the personnel are absolutely lovely. We actually enjoyed not being in Yangshuo and instead being close to... More

Wonderful accommodation that has been restored with love and care. We had the best Chinese food that we have ever had. Care was taken by the staff to make sure that all of our needs were met. The owners were on site to talk to us and give us the history of the hotel and the village. Clean and comfortable.... More

Got a room at the ground level. Views were good and the room was clean. Beds were comfortable and overall experience was very warm. We would definitely recommend it to families and friends. We might have to come back after a year or too. Need to save money to visit other places in China. It's a huge and vast country... More

Incredible place away from the crowds and tucked in a beautiful old village. Great hosts and probably some of the best meals we had in China. Rooms were huge, airy and with great vistas to the Nearby open fields and hills. Couldn't recommend this place more. Also the staff was really helpful to organize activities.

We met with Ian, the man whose sense of creativity, resilience, and passion for challenge, gave a second birth to the place and surrounding area. Well done! Keep... More

When renovation of the front house will be completed, the entrance to Secret Garden will be less scary. A solution for the used toilet paper to be found, please. The staff is so welcoming and helpful. Admirable concept of the hotel, the feeling of living in a chinese village but with modern comfort. Beautifully decorated. The two dinners we had,... More
