Fantastic location, lovely place, and very good service. Staff can help you with needed arrangements for hiking, tours, bikes, et al. The rooms were fine, not sensational but completely acceptable. Having lived in China for several years, I can say this place is way above the average.

The place sits at the adjacent village, 10 min. Walk along the river to Yangshou. There are shuttle services to city center, or you can hire a bike. We stayed in the family chalet, which was a wooden double bedroom, simple and clean. The outside of the building, is a relaxing and enjoyable court, that is also used for the... More

This resort has an amazing view over the river and the mountains. The rooms are average; the stone sink in the bathroom is disgusting to touch (kind of organic like hypertufa and looks dirty) and our toilet leaked so we only flushed when necessary. The rooms are dimly lit. The food in the dining room was great and the staff... More

Dear Sir, We appreciate you sharing your helpful feedback with us and are happy to know you loved our staff and food. As of today we have already fixed the leaky toilet in your room, which had we known about earlier from you, would have been taken care of sooner, or we would have offered you a complimentary room upgrade....

After a 5 hour boat trip from Guilin to Yangshou and a short stroll thru Yangshuo we came to this amazing hotel. Although the country side was beautiful all the way, only at the hotel, looking thru my room window and eating dinner in the garden I can say I could feel all the beauty and serenity of this place....

Our time at the Yangzhou Mountain Retreat was magical. The setting is breathtaking. The staff was so cognizant of our every need. Little Fish was on top of every detail of our time there. Often even before we asked the question she had an answer. I would recommend this spot to everyone. It really takes you to another place and... More
