A perfectly situated hotel! I could have stayed at the hotel the entire time and been very satisfied. It was one of the best views in the area and located right on the river, which most hotels are not. The food was good, my room was comfortable and nicely decorated with a balcony overlooking the river, the staff was helpful...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

After much researching I chose Yangshuo Mountain Retreat for the end of our China trip. This place ended up eclipsing all others and most definitely was the highlight! The view was just heavenly from our Balcony Family Room, straight across the river to the karst mountains. The onsite restaurant open for breakfast lunch and dinner served lovely food, both international...

Yangshuo Mountain Retreat is a small rustic hotel with clean spacious rooms. The balcony looks out on the spectacular mountains and river. Meals(Chinese or Western) can be taken outside on the riverbank or in the small restaurant.

We arrived in Yangshuo having travelled by the Li River from Guilin and were transferred to this lovely hotel. We were met with a welcome drink which we enjoyed on the promenade by the river. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and we liked our room very much - views of the Yulong River and the tourist rafts being...

Whilst the service was a bit on the hovering side, the waitresses were attentive and helpful, showing us how to get to different areas of the town by ourselves. I really enjoyed the room information book and the fact that everything can be handled whilst at the hotel, making this part of the trip to China the smoothest.

Dear Carina, We're thrilled to be considered the smoothest part of your entire China trip! We encourage independent travel, especially in the villages around us, so that our guests may have more authentic interactions with local people, not just a guided tour. Our commitment to localism is one way we promote sustainable tourism in the Yulong Valley. Thank you for...

Was a beautiful and quiet place away from the town but close enough to taxi in. Staff were very helpful, and the room had a balcony view to die for. We did many of the normal activities and enjoyed them all but it was our own unguided hikes that proved to be the most enjoyable and popular with our kids....
