We have spend 3 days in the last week of October visiting from France, doing a 10 days trip in China. The Club is brand new and the first impression upon arrival was very good. A very impressive park (46 ha total) with unique lights effects at night. Rooms are OK but certainly not luxurious. No bath tube and a strangely decorated bathroom (kind of gothic design all black) with a hole in the middle open on the bed ... Large terrasse on the Park. F&b is typical Club Med. Good but nothing stellar. We had to ask for fresh squeezed juice in the morning and the buffets remain somehow basic. Evening activities are 'standard' for a CM. The bar area is VERY noisy and do not give you any privacy feeling. Occupancy was less than 30% so I do not dare to imagine how this can be when the site is fully packed with 800 guests The GO team is passable +. You clearly feel they want you to be happy but something is missing. We have spent most of days scouting the area on our own so we had no chance to test the sports.
A killing detail. The club is lost in the middle of nowhere 40 km south of Guilin. You can't get taxi there so they need to be ordered on call. 1hr wait guaranteed :( Sadly the club do not inform you so you get caught the first time. No shuttle to the two local towns Yangshow and Guilin.
Overall, this new resort s not designed particularly for overseas foreigners. First segment targeted is indeed the Chinese community. Not an issue as such but good to know if your aim is to be in a quiet place where you think you will meet mostly foreigners.
My final conclusion is this club is nice with some great assets. But certainly overpriced ... Hence the average mark
