Yangshuo Mountain Retreat is set in an idyllic location at a bend on the Yulong River. It is very peaceful having a drink or a meal in the garden, listening to the quiet flow of the river, looking across at the Karst mountains.

March was perfect along this beautiful and completely quite shore of the Yulong River; no heat, no mosquitos. A very welcoming and gentle staff, perfect dinners based on local recipes and ingredients, a fireplace with a fire in a dining room that invited to conversation with other guests.
