A wonderful experience! We arrived to Yanghsuo on a rainy evening and the only thing we had in mind was some food and a good night sleep. Well we got much more than that! The food was excellent, serving both chinese and western options. All of the houses have been restored, keping their traditional character, which fits to the environment.... More

At heart I'm a bit of a 5-star kind of guy. The resort that typically excites me is seething with swimming pools, restaurants, bars and spas, and topped off with things like tennis courts or water-sports paraphernalia. This is not that. And for that, I'm so glad. No, Secret Garden Boutique Hotel is not the lap of luxury. There's not... More

The place is just wonderful, located in an ancient abandoned village. The rooms were quite nice, and you can sit and eat or drink in the open. The service was very good, they organised taxis and cars for us to go around. The food was very good too !

We stayed at Secret Garden with our 2 children for 4 nights over Mid Autumn Festival, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel is beautifully and conveniently located at the foot of a karst in the historic village of Jiuxian (see Attractions) - an oasis away from the tourist bustle and busy main road, yet only a 5 minute walk to...

My husband and I stayed here recently. And what a lovely little courtyard boutique hotel it is. It's about 7-8 Km away from downtown Yangshuo away from the hustle and bustle. The staff is very friendly and efficient. There are only a handful of them but they are all efficiently multitasked. They also help out in organising cars for your... More

Very sensitively restored, comfortable rooms,great food and friendly staff within walking distance of the Yulong River and just a 50 Yuan cab ride into town makes this an idyllic place to stay. Interesting passageways,small pavilions, an art gallery with a small collection of books,helps in an ongoing exploration.

We stayed at Secret Garden for 3 nights earlier this week. The hotel is located in a small quiet village. The staff were all very friendly and keen to help us - they sorted us out with bikes, advised about the boat trips on the Yulong river and booked a car and boat trips into Yangshuo. We ate several meals... More
