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

I cant say enough about the service and facilities at Moondance. We stayed two nights and enjoyed our meals and the service provided. The location is such that you can sit by the peaceful river with your cocktail and watch the locals go by, while being away from the hustle of the main road. The food was good and plentiful.... More

Moondance opened a new building this April, and got to start with a whole new team of young, excited and very helpful local people. Service levels and atmosphere have never been better and under the guidance of Susan, our Client Service Manager things... More

This is a fabulous hotel out of town in a beautiful setting next to the Jinbao river. The staff are very friendly and several of them can speak English very well. They were super helpful and arranged everything for us during our stay. Stay in one of the rooms on the top floor looking out over the river. Room 305,... More

We were traveling as a family of two adults and three children (10,8,6) in China with some frustrations about the lack of quality and value in other hotels booked by Stubborn Mule Travel agency, in fact we were feeling quite cheated. HOWEVER, the Moondance met and exceeded our expectations. We stayed in two different style of rooms, one that was... More
