My son and I really enjoyed our stay. The hotel has a great location on the river, the staff is very nice and helpful. Most of them speak English which is a big plus! The breakfasts are great! As it was really really hot the only thing that we missed was to be able to swim in the river! We will come back with pleasure!

All clean and nice, a boutique hotel compared to a chain hotel. Helpful and very friendly English speaking staff! They arrange drivers and tour guides too. Their customers are 98 percent foreigners so there is lots of socializing too. A perfect holiday you can have here!!

Yangshuo Mountain Retreat is situated about 40 minutes outside the main drag of Yangshuo, and only when we got there did we realize what a blessing that was. The retreat is super quiet and well-kept, the rooms are lovely, and the staff are very friendly. The restaurant is also great, we ate there for 4 out of 5 meals while in Yangshuo. Probably the best thing about this place were the steps that lead to a private stretch of river for swimming for hotel guests (a lifesaver in hot summer weather). No complaints, would definitely highly recommend!

Dear Isabelle, thank you for taking the time to share your great experience with other travelers. We're also happy you enjoyed your river swim, a rare treat in Summer! We are 12km from Yangshuo town, which by car is about 15 minutes, or you wrote, one can bike it in 40 minutes along the river with our free bicycles. With the rate of Yangshuo's development, our priority has always been and continues to be the serenity and quietude for our guests, so thank you again for pointing that out. Andy and our longtime local chefs are super happy to know how much you enjoyed the food as well. Take care and we hope we'll see you again this Winter. Yours, Little Fish, Michelle, Anna, Xiao Mi, Anna, Michelle, Kate and the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat Family

From the moment we arrived here we had such a special, relaxing, happy experience. The staff are amazing! We loved our room and balconies and how peaceful it all is. The breakfast was my favourite meal and we enjoyed leisurely eating by the river. All the food was delicious and at night you can eat by the river with the fairy lights sparkling in the trees. We went to a different hotel for the last bit of our stay so we could use a pool but that was a mistake. Next time we would definitely just stay here. I loved that it is quiet at night. We were able to walk to the rafts and easily organize cars to take us other places. Thank you! We loved our stay!!

Dear Molly, we're grateful for all your kind words here and hope we'll have you back someday soon. As you mentioned, there are more and more Chinese hotels with pools here, but we decided, based on our 20-year-old founding principles of environmental conservation that this was not for us. We do encourage guests to swim in the very clean Yulong River at the edge of our property, which is a natural way to enjoy our local beauty. We're happy to see you enjoyed our fairy lights while sitting in the garden for meals, as we just put them up to make riverside dining more romantic! Safe journey and please come see us again soon. Yours sincerely, Little Fish, Michelle, Anna, Xiao Mi, Anna, Michelle, Kate and the Mountain Retreat Family
