“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Just had an amazing weekend at Le Passage. We drove out from Shanghai (although next time we may try the train connection through Hangzhou), drove through beautiful mountains and lake areas upon reaching Moganshan and arrived at the property, nestled in its own valley surrounded by tea plantations and bamboo forests. The property, interior design and layout evoke fond memories of Relais & Chateaux properties previously encountered traveling through the French wine country. The ambience is warm and inviting with an elegant dining room, two private rooms next to the swimming pool for romantic dinners or group events, a casual/bistro room for breakfast and lunch, and a beautiful salon with deep leather sofas, a wonderful view of the tea plantation and a pool table - a perfect place for afternoon cocktails and to relax for after-dinner drinks. The property also has a terrific wine cellar with a gorgeous room for large, private parties. We had the good fortune to meet the owners, Christophe and Pauline, who were there to welcome guests as well as some friends visiting from overseas. Their presence and hospitality contributed immensely to the warmth of the environment and the quality of the experience. We will definitely be back again, particularly when the weather is warmer to enjoy the swimming pool and other outdoor activities.

With the new high speed train in service Moganshan is now under 2 hours from Shanghai and an incredible 8 minutes from Hangzhou.
It is always a great pleasure and reward to us and our team to share with guests who know how to appreciate it the magic of our tea plantation.
We hope to have you back with us soon to share good wine and food in the rose garden now in full bloom.

Beautiful place with gorgeous surroundings. Sadly, we were deeply disappointed by the food. Having lived in China for quite some time this can be related to the fact that the owners did not seem present. As an example I would like to mention the lamb chops with vegetables from the nice looking menu. Imagine our surprise when lamb arrived with 3 small carrots and french fries, clearly not home made. Not up to standard for a luxury hotel.

We are sorry to hear that you did not appreciate our food since it is what we get the most compliments for. The lamb chops of our pool restaurant are imported from Australia and the carrots are fresh from the organic farm located five kilometers from the hotel. We serve French fries for lunch at our Pool Restaurant where the setting is more casual and would have been happy to offer you another option if you had requested it. Moganshan has great vegetables. In any case we thank you for bringing your comment to our attention, we have already briefed our kitchen team to make sure they always keep the standard where you and we as owners expect it to be.

Le Passage is a peaceful and serene retreat that makes for the perfect city escape for those who need a break. It takes guests to simpler times in the sense that activities such involving the outdoors are encouraged (i.e. hikes, strolls through the tea plantation on its grounds) but still has all the modern day luxurious amenities one would expect from a 5-star hotel (great toiletries, wifi through the resort, indulgent wine cellar, great service staff).

The food at Le Passage is also beyond expectations: I was served thoughtful vegetarian dishes that were actual courses, rather than the usual sides or pastas I get from hotels.

What adds to this place is that the owners, Christophe and Pauline often spend their weekends there, and it is not unusual for them to spend time with their guests and make them feel welcome.

I highly recommend Le Passage to anyone who needs a getaway from city life or just wants to experience a new luxury retreat that offers something different.

Room Tip: If you arrive late in the evening, make sure to let the hotel know so that they can prepare some foo...

In Moganshan we have access to great selection of fresh organic vegetables. It would be a shame not to try our best to make delicious vegetarian dishes in season for our vegetarian guests.
The kitchen team takes this very seriously and will be very happy to hear your positive feedback. It is important to us to be a gourmet destination where vegetarians, gluten-free and lactose intolerant guests can also have a great food experience.
We have also incorporated a choice of vegetarian dishes that our guests can learn how to cook at our cooking school during their stay.
Thank you for your encouragements, we look forward to have you again with us in the near future.

Company orginazed the team building to Le Passage! Very good resort and we all enjoy the hotel activities!! Rode the mountain bike and made the French food in cooking school, very fun!!! Room is French country style but incredibly luxurious. Really like the cuisine from Pool restaurant, although a little bit expensive. But food quality is perfect! Enjoy the amazing view and tranquil Moganshan! I will be here again!!!!

Room Tip: I believe the deluxe is good enough! If you go with your family, you can choose the suite.

Our newly opened French cooking school is great for team building activities, it is also very fun for a group of friends and for children. Biking in Moganshan is truly fantastic and we are happy that you took the time to experience it.
Thank you for your positive comments, make sure to climb up the top of Moganshan next time you visit us. We look forward to see you again.

My boyfriend and Le Passage and decided to check it out for a weekend holiday. I'm glad we went. It was a great weekend lounging around the resort, swimming in the pool, eating really good food and enjoying each other's company. We made friends with Tiger, the sweet dog who lives there. The food was amazing and I would've liked to stay longer just to eat more meals. Breakfast is simple, but dinner is an affair. It inspired us to take our first cooking class together and now I'll make sure my boyfriend makes me duck confit when we're back home. Overall, a great place to relax and gorge on good food. Slightly pricey but worth it. (We didn't go to the spa so no rating).

Room Tip: Deluxe room in the main building was perfectly comfortable.

Le Passage Mohkan Shan would not be the same without Tiger our in-house border collie.
When we opened the hotel to guests we were not sure to keep him on the property but very rapidly we realized that he was not only fully part of the team but was also providing one of the best experience to our guests.
He literally guides guests up to the top of Moganshan and is by far the most complimented member of our team by both children and adults.

We hope that your boyfriend keeps making you good duck confit. We look forward to see you back again soon to teach you both few more dishes. Thank you for your positive review it means a lot to us.

I went to Le Passage Mohkan Shan with a few friends for a weekend getaway and couldn't have been more impressed. A few things really stood out to me. First, the meal. The chef prepares really good meals and it's obvious he makes just about everything from scratch and uses a lot of local produce like bamboo (in a French style). The staff were also very helpful in suggesting wines , giving directions to other sites in the area and making us special cocktails at the Pool Bar. Having said that, the second best part was the heated pool! Since we were here in the winter it was nice to still be able to swim and bike around the property. I'll definitely be back!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a private garden!

Good food and wine is definitely part of our culture and it is always very pleasing to read that you have enjoyed it as much as we do.
We want to make Le Passage Moganshan a true gourmet destination in China in the spirit of the great restaurants you can find in the French countryside.
We look forward to see you soon by the pool this spring. Thank you for your great review.

The property is has a lot of heart put into it. However, operations of the property doesn't really do the owners justice. The food is reasonable. Not many staff in the property, not much services, just a few local maids running around. Way too expensive for what is provided.
