After a couple of weeks travelling the big cities of china I was really hoping Li River retreat was going to let me relax and enjoy the natural environment .... and I wasn't disappointed. Its laid back, but at the same time the staff are very attentive and always there. The rooms are big, clean and stylish. And the restaurant... More

There is nothing negative you can think off. With 19 rooms and a little bit out of town (just 15 to 20 minutes on foot) it is a very nice and quiet hotel, with the city of Yangshuo next door. The rooms are spacious, well equipped and maintained. The people spoke English and took care, just like the owner. The... More

We stayed for 5 nights in April. It was a friendly and relaxing stay. We have 2 children aged 13 and 11. I asked for 2 rooms next door to each other, which they were but in fact the rooms were so large we could have comfortably shared one room had we wanted to economise. It was easy to arrange... More

We enjoyed everything about this hotel, the location, rooms, quiet and surrounds. Staff were helpful but not pushy. Views amazing, and great place for exploring. Can even walk to town, where it gets noisy.

We stayed from 31st May until June 3rd and couldn't fault it. Fantastic views of the river and karst mountains and away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre. Food was competitively priced and catered for all tastes especially western and the staff were always helpful with advice without pushing you for tours etc. Easy walk into town... More

clean room and bathroom. Good location if you want to stay outside the hustle and bustle of town, which we very much approciated. Beautiful views of the Li River and surrounding mountains. We were very unlucky as it rained 2 days in a row. Due to the darkness in the room (lightbulb sparse and very weak) you could read or... More

We stayed in two highly rated properties while in Yangshuo. Both were fine but when adding up all the advantages we felt that the Li River Retreat was the most outstanding. The location is perfect. Great view overlooking the Li River from a great vantage point and it is possible to walk to town in about 20 minutes. All the... More

Great choice for breakfast - recommend the vegetarian omlette and Yunan coffee! An easy 20 minute walk to the town. Restaurant open all day and great for a light lunch -... More

We stayed here as part of a tour arranged by Audley travel. Room 201 is highly recommended - spacious, more a small flat than a room, with a very good sized sitting area, with windows on 3 sides and magnificent views. Small balcony; good sitting area outside the Retreat, too. Extremely comfortable. Everything that had to work did work. Even... More

I booked for 4 night (river view deluxe room- which I thought was their biggest room--5 months in advance) based on the reviews on Trip Advisor The place has a lovely view, but that can't overcome it's obvious and even unpleasant shortcomings. And "deluxe"? Far from it. Here are the "pros" that I could see: Nice location right on the... More
