We recently stayed at the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat for 4 nights. I was a bit worried about how the place would be. It turned out to be pretty good. The staff are all very friendly and courteous. The rooms are decent...we had a leak when it rained and the door was ok. It is in a beautiful area and a...

We stayed three nights in the YMR and the visit exceeded our expectations from all aspects. It is a smallish hotel located alongside the river. We had room 202 on the first floor, which had a patio out the front and a wonderful view along the length of the river - watching the bamboo rafts drifitng down - a very...

Located on the river bank and surrounded by karst peaks, this is the perfect place to unwind: breakfast on the river terrace (great coffee!), reading a book on your bedroom balcony, a bike ride through surrounding villages. The staff were friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was relaxed. The location was superb. Only downside was the poor soundproofing between rooms (possibly...

We stayed 4 nights at the YMR during our recent two week trip to China. What a memorable experience. Amazing nature scape, terrific people who are passionate about what they do, excellent food, tasteful decor and great bicycles to explore the country side. China is changing rapidly and hopefully the management model of this great place will become a template...

Yangshuo Mountain Retreat is a peaceful beautiful place to stay, idyllic setting right on the river, comfortable rooms, delicious food, friendly and very helpful staff. We cycled, walked, took local buses to various villages, rafts down the river, all made possible with the help of the staff who explained things and gave us notelets in Chinese characters to find our...

We've just got back from 3 fantastic nights at the YMR. My Mum and my Uncle were visiting from NZ for my Mum's 60th and I was anxious to make sure they had a good time. From the friendly email conversations when I made the booking, to the smiley faces on the staff when we arrived, to the great recommendations...

My daughter and I visited and loved the area and the resort. It was like a youth hostel in temperament, people from all over the world sit in the lobby and share experiences. We loved the daily walks, the beauty of the area, the surrounding towns. Next time I may even bring my husband!

We extended our stay at the YMR by four days because we could not leave this peaceful oasis. We both had dietary restrictions (celiac and vegetarian) and the staff were extremely kind and accommodating. The location is excellent for biking and rock climbing and the views from the rooms are incredible. I would highly recommend this hotel and I hope...
