Chalet feel. The 'villa' we stayed in has 4 rooms, 2 room each on 2nd and 3rd floor. The kitchen and living room is on the first floor. There is a main door and a side door at the living room. Please do remember to check if the door in the living room is locked as we realized ours is... More

The resort rates itself as 5 stars. Every villa/resort has 5 rooms, with a living room+sofa+tv for communal watching if needed. There is a kitchen also. 2 rooms on 1st floor and staircase to 2nd floor with 3 rooms. Breakfast was a wide spread but not fantastic. Room was big and comfortable. The housekeeper with the cooking for every villa/resort... More

The resort villa is well maintained and the rooms are neat and tidy. Each villa has three levels with 2 rooms each in the 2nd and 3rd level. The ground level is the well furnished living and dining area. Each unit is provided with a housekeeper who does the necessary cooking as dictated by the residents of the unit. No... More

Lovely hotel, I stayed up there for three nights, room was very comfortable and clean facing to sown mountains. Breakfast was really good, huge variety of western, Asian and local food with brief Cantonese dim sum. I used the buffet on the second day of my stay, worth of money and a great deal of food variety. Service was good... More

This review is a bit overdue ! So here goes ! Now I am NOT a great fan of Chinese hotels - so when I booked Guanfang I was taking a risk. I wanted to stay in a villa rather than a room as it was a longish 10 day stay and I didn't want to be cooped up !... More

A nice hotel with butler service and breakfast prepared in your own private unit. Rooms weren't as big as a typical 5 star hotel in China. However, it was still comfortable. As the hotel is quite big, you will need to request for transport to & fro the main lobby. Overall, this is the best hotel throughout the whole Yunnan... More

We stayed in the tower building, which was nice (so please be clear when you're booking, maybe use a Chinese-speaking travel agent to confirm your reservation in the tower instead of a village unit), but could use a few, very inexpensive updates to significantly improve the rooms -- things such as a plastic shower curtain that needs to be replaced,...

I'm staying at the village unit. Freaking smelly and dirty! The shower drain is clogged. A/c isn't working. Teapot try is dirty. Bathroom is dirty. Lounge chair is dirty. Bed is super hard. If you have heavy luggages, good luck, no elevator, you need to carry it yourself. If I could, I would pack my bags and leave immediately.
