Stayed here for 4 nights over the New Year. It is a great place to stay if you want to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of Guilin and Yangshuo. We had a double room with a balcony overlooking the river, full length windows to sit and take in the view, people floating by on bamboo rafts.... More

This hotel provided a great break to relax from the rigours of a very busy tour of China. The grounds at the front of the hotel offer great views of the river and the spectacular Karst Moutains. Just lie back and relax iistening to the sound of the river and the birds; or there are plenty of opportunities to go... More

Its been a short weekend break before Christmas, hence we got a rather rainy experience. Nevertheless we did enjoy the place and its location set next to the river and within lush green. Nothing to complain about and the sister hotel in the village does also make great food.

This is very late as we stayed at this hotel in April 2015 (8 months ago now). Before arrival staff were quick to reply to emails, providing clear information and also very reassuring. The hotel arranged a driver to collect us from Guilin airport. The hotel is located away from the town centre which we appreciated as we preferred the... More

The hotel is in a beautiful location on the Yulong River with stunning views of the mountains beyond. The rooms, which all face the river, are attractively decorated in a traditional Chinese style and most have balconies. There is also a really pretty dining area outside by the river. The staff were all fantastic. They were really friendly, spoke good... More

The geographic area is super dope with limestone formations shooting out of the ground. A river runs through the county and is part of the livelihood. The retreat was awesome, from a western perspective. Spacious rooms with wood flooring and a fully tilled bathroom. Took half a day to warm up but that smell of pine from the rafters, flooring...

Our family for four including two teenagers were there early part of December. We booked a family room but was pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to two rooms with direct view of the beautiful Yulong River against the backdrop of mountains almost 360 degrees around the resort - simply breathtaking and absolutely peaceful! Rooms were clean and had all the... More

A boat trip rowed by the boatman would cost 200 to 300 yuan travelling by the Serene Yulong (Jade Dragon) River where some hotels were built along the bank. Midstream, there were barge berthed catering Barbecue fish from the Yulong River at a fantastic price. Sometimes the boat would have to go through concrete dams 6 inches to 1 foot... More

My boyfriend and I came to Yangshuo for two days as a break from the city before Christmas. We came to yangshuo mountain retreat by recommendation from a coworker in Guangzhou. Though the weather outside was cold, the rooms were very cozy, the shower was hot, and the log fire in the restaurant was great to chill by. With mulled... More
