Located on the bank of the Yulong River with the mountains in the background it is hard to imagine a more beautiful location. The view from our balcony was truly spectaculer. Stayed here three nights and rented bikes for a full day riding on the riverside trail and also quiet roads to visit the sister hotel. The weather was beautiful... More

Can't wait to go back to this hotel. Great location and fantastic service. I would recommend the Yangshuo mountain resort without hesitation. The food was great too. I look forward to the time we go back as a family but it is suited for couples too.

We arrived at the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat where we were given tea/juice and cookies while the ladies at the desk checked us in. We were given a free upgrade to a river view room, which was spacious, comfortable, clean, and luxurious. The staff spoke very good english, helped arrange events for us and taxis around the area as well as... More

Excellent food and amazing (movie type) views to the river. The beer fish (cat fish) was delicious! The staff was very efficient and friendly. Just one thing. Do not forget the mosquito repellent if you want to eat outside!

I brought two 11-year-old daughters to Yangshuo for a wonderful five nights at Yangshuo Mt. Retreat. In the time I had spent in China twenty years before teaching English, and now again during this recent tour of several cities in China, I found most Chinese people warm and funny, but the standards of service remain lower than they are in...

There is a full range of accomodation in the district from sweaty backpacker to clinical five-star but for us Mountain Retreat stood out. It is just a 40y taxi ride from West Street if you want a noisy tourist market and it is ideally located for cycling the Yulong valley (cheap to hire from the Hotel) and bamboo rafts pass... More

This is a great little hideaway. Format is many 2 storey houses. Old style. Low key. Right on the river. Lovely to sit in the garden and watch the punts go by. Fabulous food. Really enjoyed eating here. The homemade flavoured rice wines are good too - recommend a try! Staff very friendly. Competent. Good English for the area. Only... More
