  • Guilin Yangshuo  Mountain Retreat guests swim in Yulong River - best Yangshuo hotels TripAdvisor

From April through September, guests can enjoy a Yulong River swim right from the dock at Yangshuo Mountain Retreat. While there are often bamboo rafts coming down river, they do not approach shore, which is where our guests can swim. Enjoy a complimentary innertube and float your troubles away. While the river is not deep, there can be a strong current after rains, so we ask that you check with our front desk on river conditions before entering the water. Children must be accompanied by adults at all times. 

In addition to Yulong River swim access from the Retreat, there are additional areas about 20km upstream which are uncrowded and pristine. Ask at reception for more details on transportation and access.

16 years of legendary service and breathtaking views on the Yulong River Yangshuo Guilin China

Welcome to Yangshuo Mountain Retreat, 阳朔胜地 a riverside gem among Yangshuo hotels. The Retreat was originally conceived as a simple ecolodge where expat friends could escape from the chaos of polluted mega-cities. In the beginning, there was just Angel and a telephone at the front desk. As we grew in popularity, we found it necessary to continually upgrade accommodation, adding wireless broadband and even a pizza oven! But guestrooms have remained simple as when we began: no telephone, no TV, and locally made bamboo furniture. We've stayed true to the authenticity of our original concept, like making our own beds and offering a simple farm-to-table menu with a few western favorites. Our restaurant now has great wines too, but we remain one of the only certified sustainable Yangshuo hotels where guests from around the world can experience the beauty and serenity of Yangshuo Guilin China. We're unique among Yangshuo hotels for our commitment to sustainability and empowering the wonderful local people who run the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat.
