This hotel is the best local hotel I have ever stayed in China, it is even better than many 5 star international well known hotels. ( I am not a frequent traveller, but I have stayed in / have been to almost all the 5 star hotels in some places including China, such as Sheraton, Westin, Ritz Carlton, Grant Hyatt, Shangri-la....)
Location: The hotel is located in a mountain with green trees over the whole year. It is around one and half hour drive from central Guangzhou. The hotel is now about 0.3 square meters, with 3 buildings of rooms (the official website says that it has 300 rooms) and 10 resort houses. I was quite impressive because of this size of this hotel. The air is really fresh. The 2 days we were there were raining and cloudy, but I still think the view was lovely.
Activities: You can do hiking in"BaiShuiZai", which is the tallest waterfall in China (428.5 meters higher, but it is man-made),it is very close to the hotel. You might also want to visit He Xiangu Area, Dragon Tree, ZhengGuo Temple (Buddhist). I have been to the BaiShuiZai, as it is too tall, I was unable to reach the top within half day, we returned from the 2999 steps, but it was tired enough for me.
Facilities: There is natural hot spring water and tennis court in the hotel. There is also SPA using Jurlique products. There are 10 Balinese-style cottages where you can enjoy your massage there facing the green mountain view. The mountain view SPA is quite popular, after the karaoke around 10pm, we have been told that they have been fully booked, and because we have to leave the next morning, so that I did not have the chance to try the SPA. We have done a simple food massage indoor, and it was OK.
Rooms: We stayed in a Deluxe Room for one night, the room is quite big, it is 45 square meters (confirmed on its official website) with huge bathroom, flat screen TV, branch new furniture, comfortable bed, nice mountain view…. And I have been to our friends’ luxury suite, it is even bigger, cannot describe how big it is, it is big any way.
Service: the service is good enough compare with those international 5 star hotels, well, at least those ones I have been, especially the ones in China.
