Love this location! Resort provides excellent guest service and great recommendations on what to do in the area! They help set up day trips, driving, and tickets. Staff was so friendly and speak English!

Very nice hotel in an excellent location. Staff speaks very good english and helped a lot with organising trips nearby, which is quite unusual for China. Had a good time and if we ever come back to Yangshuo we will be back.

This place is wonderful. Whilst there is only 20 rooms each room is fitted out with hand made bamboo furniture and has a great rustic feel. The view out of the window is stunning. Shark fin mountains with the Dragon river passing the retreat. Breakfast on the lawn with people doing Tai Chi. The hideaway nature of the place makes... More

We stayed for two nights and had a wonderful river view room with balcony. It was incredibly beautiful and peaceful. We didn't want to go away. We had dinner in the hotel ... The food was OK but the setting was AMAZING, especially after a long hiking and cycling day. The hotel is very well run. The staff is pleasant... More

Clean, comfortable rooms with beautiful views of the Yulong River! Even by Chinese standards, Yangshuo is crazy crowded during peak season; however, this property is outside the town of Yangshuo, so you are spared the crush of tourists. After once glance at downtown Yangshuo, you wouldn't think there was an island of serenity anywhere close by, but this place is... More

Yangshuo Mountain Retreat was a wonderful experience. It was quaint, rustic, charming, friendly and the staff was very helpful. The service was very very good and all the staff spoke English. They helped arrange drivers and site seeing which was very helpful. I especially like going through a cave, drifting down two rivers, and shopping in local villages. A much... More

The river view is absolutely stunning. It has the best view of Yulong river. The staff is really nice and food is delicious. We love it there. The room is fairly small for its price. Also lots of mosquitoes in the summer in the room, can't sleep well for first few nights. The staff helped to use repellent the last... More

Going to Guilin - my hopes were the same as most. I wanted to relax, tune out the world and enjoy the beauty of this unique part of China. Had I stayed in Yangshuo town - I would have left exceedingly disappointed. Having stayed in Yangshuo Mountain Retreat --- I couldn't believe how wonderful the holiday was. We stayed in... More

My daughters and I so enjoyed the countryside in Yangshuo, and this was the best lodging with great service and food. We were able to relax by the river or bike or hike nearby. The reception staff helped arrange all our excursions and we had a full week of enjoyable fun times, including a Chinese cooking class, trip to Yangshuo... More
