    Located in the middle of the place where everybody want to take the best picture of this region juste besides the Yulong River, an affluent of the Li river, it's the best location to be in Yangshuo for just relaxing and seeing the amazing countryside of karstic rocks.

    There are plenty of places to visit in the area, but this hotel is best placed for rest and relaxation. The view of the Karst mountains is stunning and with thorough massage treatments on offer you won't want to venture out for days! Bring a good book and perhaps pick a day to visit moon hill, which can be achieved... More

    The positive reviews are spot on; a great hotel with magnificent river/mountain views and wonderful staff, the photos don't do it justice; its better than that. Only draw back was the food which while reasonably priced was very, very bland; they seemed to do western food better than the local.

    This hotel was amazing, had great views and the rooms and bathrooms were very clean. The staff was very accommodating and it is a great location. We visited some of the other properties for dinner such as Tea Cozy and while the food was good, there is nothing the compares to the views of the Dragon River like the Mountain... More

    We stayed here for two nights and wished we could have had several more. This hotel is so cute and spotless, with views to die for. It is a traditional hotel with all the modern conveniences and outstanding service from a staff group who are all culturally related in some way. A strong local, community connection. The food was fresh... More

    Very nice idyllic setting for a couple of days relaxation. We didn't want to eat at the hotel thinking the food wouldn't be very nice however the 2 meals we had there were probably the best we had in China. This was after we went into Yangshuo and had beer fish and snails - the beer fish was nice though... More

    I returned to Yangshuo in order to bring some teenagers (one my own plus two classmates) to attend Omeida Language Academy. I found out about the school during my March visit to Yangshou with some friends while on vacation. We stayed at the Mountain Retreat and I was amazed. When I made plans to return with my spouse and the... More

    A very laid back hotel outside Yangshuo on the river bank, hotel is a European 3* with service, welcome and location more than compensating for any lack of luxury Run to an Eco-ethos, the rooms are more than adequate, the public areas lovely and the river bank idyllic. Breakfast was absolutely superb, served promptly. A great value retreat in an... More

    We stayed here three nights in April following the usual stunning River Li cruise from Guillin. We had decided to spend a few days in the area amidst the unusual scenery of the karst hills. Originally advised to stay in the town, we read reviews of this hotel and decided to spend our time here out in the countryside. A... More

    We stayed 2 nights here in the family room (with bunk beds). The beds were fine, the rooms were a bit musty, but were fine. The views from the hotel were amazing. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We borrowed bikes from the hotel one day and toured along the road and down a path by the river. We... More
