Yangshou is very touristic. The center of the town very busy and not so pleasant. We were very luck to pick this lovely place outside of town. The word "resort" may be misleading. The term "boutique" is more accurate. Everything about this place is "charming". The rooms are lovely and clean. The yard is big with lots of space for... More

We stayed at Moondance for 3 nights during a Spring Break trip to Guilin and Yangshuo, and we really enjoyed ourselves there. I'm giving the resort 5 stars for the comfortability of the place, and for how the hotel just fits in to the environment so perfectly; giving (Western) guests what they need in terms of Western amenities but still...

We enjoyed a nice coffee break with yunnan coffee and apple pie for the adults. The kids had fresh jucie and ice cream pancakes. We just passed by this place on a great day out on the bikes. The garden is very peaceful, next to the river. The kids found a lot of things to do.

My adult son and I stayed here for two nights in late January 2015. It was a very pleasant place. Close to Moon Hill, the old banyan tree and few of the caves it is a great base camp for the area. Rooms are nice, with modern amenities. Wifi is strong throughout just realize you have to choose a different... More

This is a lovely resort in Yangshuo--the room was comfortable, very clean and large--we had a deck off the room which was lovely place to drink morning tea and journal. The staff is so helpful and fun. The food was really good! They also have a full bar with happy hour. Nice to sit after a full day. The hotel... More

We have now stayed at this hotel twice as I was so impressed with it, and would almost recommend not bothering staying in Guilin and come straight here. The first time we took our two children aged 5 and 3 who just loved it and wanted to stay on with Tania, the manager and let us go back to Hong... More

What we love about Moondance: If you are looking for a retreat away from the worlds cares, this is it. We stayed 9 nights. 3yr old establishment, well run by an expat who married a Chinese lady. Good architecture n construction with charming local style. Room we stayed was 'family room' for four - exceptionally spacious with clean n comfortable... More

My husband and I stayed 5 nights in September in the apartment suite. It was an amazing stay. The staff and the owner are incredibly kind and welcoming. They organized many high quality daytrips for us as well. The setting and facilities are impeccable and memorable. Highest recommendation! We will be back some day.
