Our family visited the resort to relax at the end of an adventurous trip though Sichuan province. The resort is in a picturesque location overlooking a river and opposite the famous botanical gardens. There are few places that when you're shown your villa it is better than the photos but the villas are truly gorgeous. We had a mix up with our booking and had reserved the wrong villa. The resort management were wonderful in trying to rectify the problem even though it was not their fault. The restaurants serve good quality food - local, Thai and western. The manager is delightful and was very welcoming and helpful during our visit. Service was a little uneven as many staff didn't speak English but there were some gems amongst the staff, especially in the restaurants. I wish I had done this review earlier and could name the particular staff. The spa was also excellent with lovely staff and great products. Our villa had some issues with things like plumbing (ie mixers didn't work so showers too hot, tub overflow was directly below spout so water didn't make it into tub) which I'm sure will be ironed out. The only reason I haven't given a higher rating is the teething problems that were occurring as the resort had only been open a couple of months. We would definitely return and I'm sure the resort will be living up to it's potential. One of the few luxury places to stay in beautiful Yunnan province and quite a gem.
