Serenity amid the rice paddies!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 30, 2009

My 72yr old mother and I just got back from China and stayed at a place called the Dragon River Retreat just outside Yangshuo along the Yulong River. Truly, it was fantastic! It wasn't expensive, and we have a lovely balcony overlooking the rice paddies (we booked the Twin Suite overlooking the YuLong River). It's a ways out of town, about 10 mins by vehicle and will cost you 30RMB each way if you hire a taxi (seems to be the flat rate, no one charged us any different). However, the hotel offers you 2 free trips to town if you wish (I think it was 2). They also offered to book tours for us, like a raft trip down the Yulong River (whoa, that was funky fun!), or a hot air balloon ride over the beautiful karst scenery. The rooms were a decent size and had a lot of ambience. They also had a restaurant offering both western food and chinese. Also, they offered laundry service! Free internet in the lobby! The bathrooms were a little odd, having the shower directly overtop the toilet, but I gather that is normal in some places. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely stay there again! The website is www.dragon-river-retreat.com.

Unique Quality: Room colors were a soothing Cherrywood and Green, hardwood cherrywood floors, huge balcony with table and chairs. Fridge for your cold water or brewskies. A/C available.
