Fabulous facilities and a marvelously relaxing environment. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Had a terrific massage with a friend in a double room in the spa - staff outstanding. Two great swimming pools. One of the best hotels we've ever stayed at.

If you want a bit of luxury and some good facilites while exploring the river and countryside about Guilin then book this hotel. It is a bit out of the city centre, but has views of the river and has very good sports/swimming/spa facilities. The evening buffet is well worth the money and it includes drinks. The staff are lovely...

Fabulous hotel, fantastic roomswith amazing facilities. Beautiful gardens and water feature and also an outdoor pool. You can walk through the gardens at the rear to the Li River and see water buffaloes grazing. The buffet-style dinner was excellent with a lot of variety. Breakfast was excellent with a wide selection of food.Staff were very attentive and welcoming, nothing was...

Completed some 3 years ago, this is by far the best 5-star hotel of international standing in Guilin with its design layout, service, comfort and catering all bearing the characteristic elegance and sophistication of Shangri-la. The gustrooms are well appointed and, most imprtantly, beds are comfortable. Had a very decent dinner at the Shang Palace which served us fine local...

Another pre-booked hotel as part of our China tour. Room and facilities definitely up to what we had come to expect from Shangri-La. Couple of slight problems - we had to find and serve our own coffee on morning at breakfast, there were no waiting staff to be seen. The hotel is a bit out of the way and you...

Two nights and we could not enjoy the first and only outdoor pool of our China tour: this is a real shame. One evening it was closed for disinfection (can't they do that at night?) and the following day for rain (you can enjoy a swim when it rains, you know?). In the room the air-con setting did not work...

Very helpful staff; lovely hotel - very luxurious and fab outdoor pool facilities. Yes it is a way out of Guilin but then Guilin itslef is not an attractive city. The majority of people are in Guilin for the Karst scenery and so there is little advantage in being in the city centre. All the boats leave from a point...

We stayed one night, getting in very late due to flight delay then leaving early next morning for Li River cruise to Yangshao. Modern hotel and very large as per other reviewers almost a feeling of caveranous. Breakfast was good. Staff was helpful and provided additional bottles of water when requested.
