The staff, service, food, and accommodations at this serene location made for a completely relaxing few days at the end of our China trip. The location is ideal for bike rides around the countryside and yet is close enough to make travel into Yangshuo a breeze.
The staff greeted us warmly at check-in and escorted us to our standard river view room, which was nice but incredibly small for two adults and our two packs (one side of the bed was almost on top of the tiny bathroom). Fortunately, the desk staff were able to move us to a larger mountain view room (room# 201A) with private balcony featuring gorgeous views. The room was well kept with updated bathroom fixtures, air conditioning/heat, plenty of hot water, and space for our packs. We couldn’t have been more pleased and considered the extra cost well worth it.
The retreat includes a full restaurant on site featuring a wide range of tasty dishes that are reasonably priced, which is good since you are not near many other options. For breakfast, 40 yuan buys you yogurt/muesli, toast, 2 eggs, coffee/tea and juice. You can also spend less but we found this to be a great bargain – also try their ginger tea; it’s amazing!
Throughout our stay the entire staff proved to be incredibly friendly and helpful. They arranged transportation for us into town and gave us a business card that included written instructions for our taxi driver on the return trip. For 30 yuan the retreat also rented bicycles for the day – an investment that was well worth the experience!
