This guest house is a few km out of the main city so you don't come here for the nightlife or shopping! You come for the views, the simplicity and to have a nice relaxing time down by the river. The staff are very friendly, most have excellent English, and they're very helpful, which is really useful because English isn't... More

Last time I went to Yangshuo was back in the mid-80s when Yangshuo was just a village on the Li river. I was amazed and not a little disappointed to see who it has changed into a big town, so I was thankful that we were staying up the the Mountain Retreat. We were very unfortunate as it had been...

My sister and I truly enjoyed the surroundings and food at this place! Highly recommended! You can go hiking, rafting, swimming or just chill with a good book and look at the river. I felt much calmer after my stay there.

After 3 weeks roaming crowded Asia, this place is so quiet and out of time it's pure magic. The room seems to come from the 19th century yet have all modern luxury you can expect from an environmentally friendly hotel. Service is astouding good and the food is delicious. Too bad nobody told us we could have swim in the... More

I read the previous review last week while at the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat and was quite mystified. My partner and I recognise little or none of it. Other guests we talked to there we also very satisifed. We have had a lovely few days here and would heartily recommend it to anyone who appreciates a relaxed hotel away from the... More

This was a wonderful place to stay with one of the best views of the river i saw in the area. It is out of town, so if you want to be in the city with close access to their many restaurants, than this may not be the place for you. The rooms were awesome and clean with great views... More

I visited China to visit my daughter who was a student volunteer teaching English in a large city. She had visited Yangshou before and she wanted to show her sister and myself the beautiful countryside. Beautiful it was!!! A member of the hotel staff picked us up at the airport in Guilin and took us straight to Yangshou. The drive... More

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.

UndertheMoon, General Manager at Yangshuo Mountain Retreat, responded to this review

It's unfortunate that competitors have to stoop to commissioning fake reviews such as this one. So here we have a non-existent guest who claims to have intimate knowledge of our compensation structure as well as that of Yangshuo County hotels and somehow took an interest in visiting our staff in their private dining room having lunch? 450 RMB for a...
