We spent 2 nights at YMR in October and felt thoroughly relaxed, The staff can't do enough to please you and the rooms/bathrooms are a delight to stay in.Would recommend to anyone. Was also lovely to have a wine menu with Australian wines on it which is very rare in China.

The pictures don't really do this place justice--it is truly amazing. My wife and I spent 9 days at YMR, and we absolutely loved it. Unlike the dirty urban environments of most Chinese cities (including Yangshuo and Guilin), this retreat is located a few kilometers outside of town, along a country road, and among picturesque villages and stunning karst peaks....

This hotel brings together three very important elements - location, comfort, and staff. Retreat is a very apt description for this hotel as my family and I have just spent 3 of the most relaxing days we've ever had on any holiday.

This place does a great job at merging Western and Chinese elements. You get the gorgeous setting on the Yulong river, just far enough from Yangshuo town so as to avoid its night-time bustle and all the neon lights. You get staff that have been recruited from nearby villages, and some of the furniture as well as the delicious food...

We stayed 5 days in this wonderful place and loved every minute. We had a family room at the top of the main building which was roomy and comfortable with stunning views of the karsts and river, plus a double room in the new building- also comfortable, immaculate and great views. Lovely clean bathrooms and great showers too. The restaurant...

I asked our travel agent to send us somewhere beautiful and tranquil for a few days rest during our recent sight seeing trip in China. She arranged for us to spend 4 days at Yangshuo Mountain Retreat. It was perfectly located between river and mountains and if you wanted you could spend the entire time swimming, bamboo rafting on the...
