Kids missed the hotel so much after leaving they now play Moondance on the way to school every day. The rooms are perfect for a family, the bunks are fun and functional. Roland and his manager Susan are friendly and the staff couldn't be more helpful. The pool is beautiful - floating on your back looking up into the rich,... More

We stayed one night at this hotel. The room was extremely comfortable and the location is fabulous. The staff is very friendly, speaks excellent English and provide great service. We sat out in the gazebo and had a drink before choosing to come inside and have dinner. We could have had dinner in the gazebo, the deck or a patio.... More

We stayed at the Moondance Boutique Resort in April and it was the perfect ending to our trip through China. We traveled with our 2 children and this was their favourite part of the trip! After all the impressive but polluted cities, Moondance was a welcome break to get some fresh air. Our room was very spacious and overlooked the... More

Firstly, this resort hotel enjoys a perfect local which is at the Jinbao River side. Secondly, the hotel building is not just a cubic box, it looks like a castle but with very distinctive Chinese features. Thirdly, stuff people here speak very good English. I like it!

Moondance was off the beaten path about a 5-10 minute drive from downtown Yangshuo, across a small bridge/dam, that was perennially covered in about an inch or two of water during the days we were there -- it made getting there an adventure. The hotel did not disappoint: the views were spectacular and the rooms were well sized and cleanly... More

We spent three days at Moondance and loved everything about it except for days of rain. Our room had three huge decks with drop dead river views. The staff are charming and work very hard to make everyone happy. We had our own guide but the hotel will help set up tours to places of interest. The hotel provides a... More

Thank you so much to the staff at the hotel, my husband and I had a lovely stay. You were all so friendly and helpful, special thanks to Susan who made everything so easy. The rooms were even better in real life than online and were spotlessly clean. The grounds were lovely and so peaceful, we loved sitting on the... More

Roland has done an excellent job with this resort, located in a stunning landscape surrounded by mountains and situated just over a vein of the river. While beautiful and relaxing, the best part about what he has done is that he works hard to give back to the community, hiring locals as staff and setting up a charity for the... More

We had an amazing time at Moondance. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, our room was simple but we enjoyed all afternoons in our private terrace having wine and cigars. The location is quiet you can walk around and find the small village nearby, we didn't use the pool because we didn't have enough time, but it seams great. It... More
