I stayed here five years ago, and it was one of my favorite trips. So when my parents came to visit me, I told them they couldn't come to China without seeing the Yangshuo area and staying at the Li River Retreat. They have renovated the bathrooms and got new furniture since the last time I was there. The rooms... More

Fabulous. My mom and I stayed for 2 nights on the 1st floor. Rooms clean with character. Restaurant quick and yummy. Views priceless. Nice to be away from the main town with better views and more quiet. Quick drive from town and the hotel easily arranges rides for you. Perfect place for a morning run along the river into town....

Quiet, clean hotel in a beautiful location overlooking the Li River with the karst scenery beyond. Good food, pleasant staff, and air conditioning that could deal with the high temperatures (although the operating instructions took some interpreting). About 30 minutes walk from the town (and the boat moorings), but this is what should be expected for a "retreat" (and taxis... More

If you are expecting a Shangri-La or Intercontinental you will be disappointed. Yes the property is a bit 'tired' and could do with some repairs but the room we had was clean and spacious with a view to die for. We had a tiny private balcony and enjoyed a bottle of wine one night at sunset. The king size bed... More

I'm from Scotland and have lived in Harbin, Northeastern China for nearly 5 years, the winters are bloody cold! My wife and son have spent some time at this hotel for 2 consecutive years. The place is beautiful! The first time we came we spent a night in Guilin beforehand, which turned out to be a bit of a let... More

We recently spent 3 nights in Yangshuo at the Li River Retreat. Our pre arranged transfer from Guilin Airport to the Retreat went smoothly as was our pre-visit communication which gave us confidence in our choice prior to arrival. What a great choice by my partner. The Retreat IS peaceful. As previous reviews indicate the Retreat is about 1 plus... More

Located in a peaceful river setting just out of town, 15 min walking one way into town, 15 min the other way to a great swimming spot. Rooms are large, well furnished and maintained, if rather in staid traditional Chinese style. Common areas look spartan in parts. Not so good was that the reception staff could hardly muster bored indifferent... More

Close enough to the city of Yangshou to cycle/walk to it, but far enough to avoid the tourist crowds and noise. This is a charming place with beautiful views, spacious rooms, kingsize beds, A/C (much needed in Yangshou in August...) and a good restaurant which serves a good continental breakfast; but we also enjoyed some nice Chinese dishes here, like...

Pleasant room, great view, wonderful staff, good food, you get the picture. We were told by neighbour’s who had visited that they did not want to leave the Li River Retreat. We stayed at the Retreat on their recommendation and found it to be one of the best places in China. All of China. And we did not want to... More

I feels so lucky and relieved that I have chosen the right place to stay during my holiday with my family. I traveled with my husband, 3 kids, my sister and my parents.
