We've just got back from 3 fantastic nights at the YMR. My Mum and my Uncle were visiting from NZ for my Mum's 60th and I was anxious to make sure they had a good time. From the friendly email conversations when I made the booking, to the smiley faces on the staff when we arrived, to the great recommendations...

My daughter and I visited and loved the area and the resort. It was like a youth hostel in temperament, people from all over the world sit in the lobby and share experiences. We loved the daily walks, the beauty of the area, the surrounding towns. Next time I may even bring my husband!

We extended our stay at the YMR by four days because we could not leave this peaceful oasis. We both had dietary restrictions (celiac and vegetarian) and the staff were extremely kind and accommodating. The location is excellent for biking and rock climbing and the views from the rooms are incredible. I would highly recommend this hotel and I hope...

We stayed there last year with friends and we highly recommend this marvellous place. The environment is beautiful and relaxing, situated just between the river and mountains. The staff is very helpful and welcoming and to finish with,the rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated in the ecofriendly way. Enjoy without any restriction!

This is a great place to sit by the river watching the world go by while you have a drink or eat a meal. There is a rural feel about this property, it fronts on the river where you can go swimming or take a raft at a leisurely pace. Food is really great offering a big variety of both...

Retreat in the name of a hotel always makes me a little nervous, as so many are not truly the relaxing retreats that this place is. We needed a rest after many weeks of intense travel. We arrived in pouring rain, soaked to the bone, and were immediately whisked into the cozy restaurant and served hot ginger lemon honey tea....

We stayed at the mountain retreat as part of a 17 day trip through China and were very dissapointed we didn't allocate more time to the Mountain Retreat. Amazing location, we had 3 rooms, 2 facing the road 1 facing the river. The rooms facing the road were great but were a bit noisy with the road traffic (despite it...

Yangshuo Moutain retreat was created by a young American entrepreneur for rock-climbers coming to the area. Just 15-minutes from the hustle-bustle of Yangshuo-town, its dream-like atmosphere seems far remoed from the real world. The vista of bamboo rafts festooned with colorful umbrellas floating down the Yulong River past giant stands of bamboo and towering karsts creates a tranquil ambience -...
