A most beautiful place to be. A fairytale view besides the river, with a very friendly and helpful service team. The breakfast and dinner at the riverside is something to keep in mind for a long time. The only stupid thing was: We only stayed for two nights. But for sure: We will comeback ... :)

This is a unique and beautiful location with very friendly staff. views are amazing and the overall feeling feels like paradise. Menu includes a good set of western style food that is welcomed after a few days of travel. Wine selection is good.

Rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable with a lovely view of the karsts. The food was fantastic- love the toffee apple dessert. Would return just for them alone. Staff were polite, helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble.

Excellent service, food, accommodation and friendliness. The staff made you feel like a valued guest. It was a great place to relax and unwind, taking in the delightful scenery and landscape nearby. One of the best places I have stayed in.

Spent 4 days at the retreat and booked the 4 bedder. The staff were extremely helpful and went beyond to make the stay a memorable one. Location-wise, I cannot imagine another hotel/resort with a better view. You're right next to the river so it's therapeutic to sit there having breakfast and watching rafts float by. There's also a walking trek...

Dear Lester, We are grateful for your insightful comments here. We also don't think of ourselves as a hotel, but as you said, a therapeutic experience that offers food and rooms. The Mountain Retreat does actually employ several families from the surrounding villages; a mother and daughter, father and daughter and three couples. We hope to make this a generational...
