Remodeled bathrooms at Yangshuo Mountain Retreat
The dampness of the rainy season combined with being on the Yulong River, surrounding fish ponds and rice fields has always presented a challenge to keeping bathrooms dry.
We recently used a special polished cement called Loft to seal the upper walls of the bathrooms and invited local artist Elin to paint them for us. It's modern meets traditional in this new design.
Elin also painted our new complimentary postcards for guests in watercolor.
Luxury Riverview Family Suite at Mountain Retreat
Yangshuo Mountain Retreat is pleased to offer a new riverview suite especially designed for families. This room for up to four adults is located right above the Yulong River with its own private entrance. It has a terrace overlooking the river with seating for up to eight people. The room also feature two bathrooms, a full kitchen with complimentary tea, coffee and minibar. Here you'll find traditional furnishings, EcoWood floors, 3 A/C units and total privacy. One room features a king bed while the other is set up for two twin beds or a super king. The second bed is a traditional tatami platform, so if only one couple in the room, the tatami can be prepared without bedding to enjoy afternoon tea or massage.
Must-visit in 2018: our award-winning sister hotel in Shaxi
If you've never been to Shaxi, now is the time to go. Located in a high secluded valley halfway between Lijiang and Dali in Northern Yunnan Province, Shaxi is one of the last intact market towns on the ancient Tea Horse Caravan Road.
A remote destination for centuries, the Lijiang-Dali Highway has now opened, making the visit to Shaxi from either city just a 90-minute trip.
The Old Theatre Inn, ranked #1 on TripAdvisor among all hotels in the county for over 5 years, is a protected heritage property over 250 years old and still functions as a stage for ancient Bai music performance. It features just five guestrooms in luxury traditional style and some of the best local food in Shaxi.
Enjoy spectacular quiet views of the valley with one of the best international wine lists among any small hotel in China. Run by Sam, Jessica and other young women from the village, Shaxi Old Theatre Inn is a rare find in China and an experience you will treasure.
