The staff was friendly and helpful, it is located right by the river and has a nice restaurant with good Chinese food. They have a selection of western food but we didn't try any of it so can't really comment on that. The retreat is quite far from town and there is not many options for food at walking distance...

After a two week holiday in China this was the perfect way to relax at the end. The countryside around Yangshuo is beautiful, the town/city itself not so much. So this hotel a few km from Yangshuo is great. You stop by the river in the middle of the karsts, but are close enough to town to see the light... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Yanshuo Mountain Retreat. We absolutely loved this place. The staff were fantastic! They helped us in every way, in booking drivers, shows and making recommendations! This place has stunning views and is quite a romantic get away! Everyone speaks great English and I love that everything is local from the staff... More

My 12 year old daughter and I spent 4 wonderful nights in July at Yangshuo Mountain Retreat after the original hotel that we booked was not what we hoped it would be. From the time that we arrived until the moment we left, we were treated like royalty. Since it was a last minute booking, we were fortunate enough to... More

A very tranquil relaxing place to visit after the busy cities of Beijing and Shanghai. Staff here are exceptional, speak English and even managed to unlock my suitcase after I idiotically lost the key! Gong down the river on a bamboo raft was unforgettable. Rooms are basic but in a good way!

After a long trip we arrived at the airport and as previously arranged the hotel had a car waiting. About an hour it took to get to the hotel but it was nice to not have to worry about how to get there. People were there waiting to help carry bags etc and to the checkin desk we went. BUT... More

Located right on the banks of the river, surrounded by those stunning limestone karst mountains, the setting of Yangshuo Mountain Retreat is truly breathtaking. We stayed in a ground floor room, with a private terrace area, which was perfect for sitting with a beer, a book, and just soaking in that view. There is also a fantastic paved walking/running/cycling path... More

Room and amenities were ideal. The staff and management were wonderful; so friendly and attentive and assisted in everything including assisting us with activities outside of the hotel. Room worked really well for our family of 4 (7yo twins). Had fun sitting back watching the rafts go by ... and we had our own go...with water soakers..

I stayed 2 nights at the Yangshuo Mountain retreat with a friend and had a great experience. The location of the hotel is fantastic - far enough away from Yangshuo to offer true relaxation but not too far that you are isolated. Being beside the Yulong River is amazing - sitting there relaxing and swimming in the river made for... More

We stayed at the Mountain Retreat in July, we were collected by the driver from Guilin station, and greeted straight away by one of the sisters upon arrival at the hotel. The hotel itself and the location is stunning, there are eating areas right on the edge of the water and you can hear the rafters singing as they glide... More
