“Sublime scenery”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Stayed 1 night in mid march 2013. Location was gorgeous and the view was one of the best I have ever stayed in all our travels. Room was warm and comfortable. All the staff were warm and helpful.

Was really nice to receive the lovely Chinese purse gift upon checking out.

Appreciate the complimentary one way transfer to their sister Luna cafe but would be better if return transfer was complimentary as well because we purposely took dinner at Luna so that we can visit Yangshuo Village Inn.

YMR did not charge us for the stomach ache medicine but we had to pay for toothbrush and toothpaste.

This is a lovely hotel right on the river, just on the outskirts of the town. Friendly english-speaking staff, lovely food and just a beautiful and quite hotel to rest and take in the beauty of the area.

This is truly a magnificent spot to soak in the scenery, relax away from the hustle that is China. We stayed for 3 nights in a room overlooking the river and the limestone mountains in-between our 2 week tour of China. Clean rooms, fresh sheets, balcony, A/C. Shower and toilet more than adequate. Toilet paper to be thrown in freestanding basket upon completion of movements (not in bowl) to preserve natural septic system. Took my Italian husband a little getting used too, but he managed! Guests were of European and American descent. Served good, not great, Chinese and western food in a beautiful old dining room. Outdoor seating for cocktails, chatting, card games. Overall, a really homey, comfortable place to de-stress. (Picnic, bike, hike,)

Room Tip: View of river

We chose sto stay here during our China trip to have some quiet downtime for a few days. This place was just perfect for this. Very quiet in an eco friendly hotle right on the Yulong river. Our rooms overlooked the river and the magnificent Karstes. The staff were attentive and spoke very good english as owned by an American who married a local girl. You msu do the bamboo raft down the river and grab a bike from the hotel and ride along the river to small villages and see how the locals go about day to day life. The town of Yangshuo has some great shopping in West street and very good range of restaurants. Get your self a one hour foot massage in your room at the hotel for $A20.

Room Tip: Rooms 202 and 203 with balcony overlooking the river.

Outside the hussle and bustle of Yangshuo, this little inn on the bank of the Yulong River is big on service and spectacular views of the karst mountains towering over the valley. The rooms are well appointed, the service is superb, the chinese food great and local.

But don't be fooled, this resort is not for everyone. It's 8-km from any kind of store or nightlife, and the western food on the menu won't be the stuff you're used to. So if you want a contemplative beautiful spot with flawless service - this is the place. If you want a western hotel with all the amenities, including shopping and nightlife, you may want to go elsewhere.

I'll recommend this to all of my friends - because it suited me perfectly. It was relaxing, gorgeous and the view was awe inspiring. FYI, Some of the people staying there had small children, and they seemed to be doing well.

This place deserves to be rated at the top of all accommodation in Yangshuo.

We stayed with my parents during Chinese New Year in this lovely resort. The service was really genuinely fantastic and always with a smile. There is only 10 rooms so even full you will always receive the same level of service. Rooms are well equipped and I advise you to book one with river view and balcony. It was a bit too cold for us to stay out in the evening but during spring of autumn it must be fantastic. Our room had a great view on the Li river and the mountain behind. We were able to rent bikes at very affordable prices for the day. The food in the restaurant is also very nice without being too pricey. You are able to order both chinese and western food.

Only weak points would be the reservation where prepayment is mandatory which is a bit a pain and also we booked tickets for the evening show and the organisation with the agent was quite messy. Fortunately my wife is chinese and the speaking the language was definitely and asset.

All in all a great experience even for my parents who flew from France for the holiday and are not used to "countryside China".

Room Tip: Definitely choose one with the view on the river.
