Don't get me wrong, if you, planning your next vacation, are looking for a tourist trap then look no further. What do I mean? I mean if you're just planning on laying around and eating overpriced hamburgers and pizza and terribly made Chinese food while taking in one great riverside view then this is the place for you.

This is a fraudulent review that we don't take seriously. We do appreciate constructive feedback and immediately act on it, but outright lies like our team are the lowest paid in Yangshuo (how would a guest even know our compensation scale?), when in fact we are among the highest, is a pathetic attempt to tarnish our stellar global reputation of...

We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay at this resort. It is just by the river, overlooking the mountains. It is very restful, nice rooms, nice food and nice staff. Wish we could have stayed longer.

After 12 days of intense sight seeing in Beijing, Xi'an, Chengdu and Guilin this hotel was the perfect place to relax for a few days before the long hall home. While our guide checked us in we were given a welcome drink and cookies before being escorted to our room where our luggage was waiting.The room was extremely spacious, clean... More

The view from the dining tables in the garden was stunning, as all the other reviewers have mentioned. The eco credentials were also impressive. A swimming pool would have been great especially as we visited in June when the weather is hot and humid. Watching couples rafting down the river was no substitiute. I was disappointed by the bedroom which... More

Wonderful experience, room was very nice, loved the large balcony looking out to the river and mountains. Very peaceful. Go now before the area is spoiled with more hotels, resorts in the area. Eco friendly was a nice surprise. Loved the food, dinner and breakfast. Beautiful items made by locals for sale in the lobby. Extremely accommodating staff, who carried... More

I suppose there are really no better locayions to find. What A View! When arriving by boat Yanshuo seemed so crowded and busy, but once in the Mountain Retreat it was all peace and quiet. Nice Room, eco friendly touch. The food was good, though not excellent, but at great prices. I did miss a swimming pool a bit, an... More

It’s been 10 years since we stayed at the eco retreat. It was one of the best accommodation experiences we had...after traveling for 3 weeks around China. What I remember most was the warm welcome, the peaceful atmosphere, the magical view form the bedroom and the sense of being in paradise out from crowds, pollution and noise. A fantastic place...

We spent four nights here in this lovely hotel located on the Yulong river. The rooms with their full length windows offer uninterrupted views of the river with the limestone karsts rising up in the background. We spent a lot of time sitting on our balcony, drinking a beer (which is provided in mini bar at same price as restaurant)... More

This hotel is in a beautiful and serene setting. It's a little hard to find the first time unless you take a taxi there, but once there the staff are ready to help in any way possible. Their English is great, and they are so very friendly. They can arrange tours, transportation, and meals at a fair price. They have... More
