Secret Garden Boutique Hotel

Reviewed 22 September 2016

Excellent location near the Yulong River and close to walks / cycle routes. I'd certainly recommend staying away from Yulong town itself. The hotel is a collection of restored buildings which still retain their authentic charm.

We stayed in the family suite at the back of the property which was a very quiet two level room with a small outdoor courtyard. Food is served throughout the day in their small restaurant and they will help organise visits to local sites as well as rent bikes.

Staff are very friendly and helpful. Guilin airport is about an hour's drive and the Longji Rice Terraces about three and a half - both of these transfers were organised by the hotel for us.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back of the property are probably quieter, but confirm with the hotel if this is a...

We stayed there four nights. All the family. Large family room.
This place is unforgettable!
Location is wonderful, staff is so nice - look for Rebbeca she is the best. Food in fun! We will be back.
They also rent bikes and arrange bamboo trip.

We had the family suite for couple of days. It was too big for 2 poeple obviously:) but having our own private garden was really nice! Overall, Friendly staff,good food and lovely hotel! It is, however, a bit hidden not the easiest place to find.

Do not go to the hotels at Yangshuo, too commercial, to loud, sometimes dirty and even overpriced.

Go out to real China go to Secret Garden Hotel, book rooms there, get your lunch and dinner there and spend your coffee time here.

I will come definitely again over.

We've just returned from 5 nights at the Secret Garden and can't wait to go back. The buildings are all wonderfully restored with a rustic charm that matches the beauty of the surrounding Yangshuo countryside.

We stayed in the 'Banyan Tree' family room with our two boys, aged 5 and 6. The room was perfect for us, with an upstairs bedroom for the children and a small terrace where they could play outside.

Food in the restaurant was excellent. We enjoyed the Chinese cuisine, while our boys happily tucked into pasta and pizza each day.

While the hotel is out of town, the staff were fantastic in arranging trips for us, including private car transport at very reasonable prices, and we found it well-located for cycling around the area, which is just stunning. The staff were all excellent, made us feel extremely welcome and were fantastic with the kids.

Highly recommend.
