We spent the weekend at Yangshuo Mountain retreat and we already can’t wait to go back. We have a 2 1/2 year old son and he loved it! He could throw pebbles in the river and run along the path that goes right up to the hotel. The food was excellent - we live in China so it was

Dear Kaylee, We so loved having you all with us and were more than happy to help you prepare in advance for your early morning departure as well as your local adventures. Thank you also for booking directly with us, which as you mentioned, comes with complimentary breakfast not offered through agents. Our chef is also pleased you liked all the Chinese and western dishes. We actually have a new chef from Europe on board this month who will be training all our kitchen staff on new dishes and making our current dishes more yummy! Hope to have you back again soon to try! Thank you so much for letting other travelers, especially those with young children know about all the things we provide to make your stay memorable for everyone. We wish you joy with your coming new addition and hope you will be part of our family again soon. Yours faithfully, Little Fish, Michelle, Annie, Anna, Kate and the Mountain Retreat family

Dear Pamela, Thank you from all of us at Mountain Retreat for your very kind review. For the past 17 years we have continually upgraded and improved our facilities, so we love to get your feedback that our efforts have made you so happy with your stay. As we are in the heart of the Yulong River Scenic Area, the new traffic restrictions mean that our guests can enjoy riding bikes on quiet back roads and even ride to Yangshuo town, which is 7km from us. Thank you for letting other guests know about the enjoyment of biking through the area and of our riverside restaurant. Yours truly, Little Fish

My wife and I enjoyed a relaxing 3 day weekend at Yangshuo Mountain Retreat. Despite the fact that it rained the entire time (which is why February is the lowest season), Chris Barclay (owner) Little Fish (resident manager) and their entire staff did a great job connecting us

Hi - we are looking to return to the resort this winter, do you have warm air conditioning?
Hello, sorry we just saw this question. It's always easy to chat with us on our website, send us an email or message on our Facebook page. We have heat A/C in all rooms and electric blankets. As it doesn't go below freezing in Yangshuo, our rooms are always toasty warm in Winter :)

The maximum we can accommodate in any of our rooms is 4 guests, unless one is an infant or toddler who sleeps with parents. Thanks for asking! You can see our rooms on the main website yangshuomountainretreat

How to get to the place under the new regulations? Is there still a shuttle?
The hotel are obviously distraught that access is restricted so if you contact them they will be very helpful in getting your transfer from the perimeter. Out of normal daytime hours I don’t think there are restrictions. Check with the hotel. The staff are lovely.
