We LOVED our stay at Tea Cozy. The front garden, common spaces, and individual rooms are all gorgeous. Richard and Curry have furnished the place with a tasteful selection of Chinese antiques. They’ve managed to combine charm with comfort—old carved panels and sleek bathrooms. The FOOD is amazing. We couldn’t resist the superb Western breakfast. Don’t miss the banana crepes. The lunch and dinner menus are extensive—quite amazing for a small kitchen—and everything is excellent. The crispy duck was particularly memorable. We opted, enthusiastically, to eat in every night. The location, a few miles outside of Yangshuo, is on a quiet road by a small river. Bamboo rafting is within walking distance. The scenery is stunning, and we found this low-tech, more intimate experience preferable to a motorized cruise down the Li. Tea Cozy has a stable of bikes, and there’s great biking in every direction—by rice paddies, to a Ming-era village, etc. Around every corner is a fascinating mix of new construction (like Tea Cozy itself) and traditional sights. Best of all, the staff were all incredibly warm and knowledgeable, and their English was excellent. They were always ready with information about where to go—and to take you there, if so desired. We had a great time getting to know them—shout out here to Amy!—and enjoyed mingling with other guests. Tea Cozy is a terrific value and genuinely cozy!
