We stayed here in July/August after spending nearly 3 weeks travelling in China. It was the perfect place to relax. We booked 2 rooms for our family of 5; the family room looked out onto the gardens and the river at the front. Beautiful!
The staff – by the reception, restaurant and housekeeping - was very friendly and helpful. Most spoke good English. Service was top-notch. We really enjoyed the food and drinks in the restaurant. You can book excursions through reception (e.g., bamboo rafting that goes past the hotel) or they can provide you with information for self-organised trips (e.g. catching the local bus to Yangdi and taking a motorised raft on the Li River).
Mountain Retreat is set in a peaceful location which means that you have to have some form of transport if you want to go anywhere (taxi, bike, scooter). But this is a small price to pay for the relaxing setting.
