“Very friendly and helpful staff. Food was excellent and plenty of choice (both Chinese and western)! Particularly liked the fact that you didn’t need to pre book meals but could just turn up when you liked any time of the day. Continue reading..
Fantastic location by the river and short walk into town. Very clean and comfortable with nice decor.” View Less...
Date: 16th of Nov, 2017 - Beautiful - 5/5 on Tripadvisor
We stayed here for two nights after the Li River cruise. What an idyllic spot for a hotel. The hotel has recently been refurbished and everything was gorgeous. The view from our room was breathtaking. It was a real pleasure to sit on our balcony and take in the wonderful environment. It was a short walk into the town where the eager traders are keen to sell you their wares. Continue reading..
A short walk in the other direction takes you to some local villages.
We ate both nights in the hotel where the food is first class. The staff go out of their way to be friendly and helpful.
We loved this place and wish Amy and Alf every success. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel
Date: 15th of Nov, 2017 - Great hotel with very good restaurant - 5/5 on Tripadvisor
We stayed for 4 nights and loved that hotel. The views were great, the room was spacious and comfortable and the staff was very charming, helpful and speaking good English.
I hadn't expected the hotel restaurant to be anything extraordinary but it was - food there was the best I tried during my few days stay in Yangshuo (I only tried Chinese food though). Continue reading..
I really recommend beer fish - it was really delicious but it might also require booking one day in advance. View Less...

Date: 1st of Nov, 2017 - Make the most of Alf's advice - he's on target every time. - 5/5 on Tripadvisor
We had a lovely 3 night stay here at Alf's resort. It is about a 30minute walk from the main township or a 30RMB taxi ride. We found it was actually a nice walk in the evenings to go into town to explore the markets and restaurants but it was also nice just resting by the pool and having a snack/meal at Amy's by the Li.

The twin room on level 3 had a lovely balcony from which to admire the distant karst formations and hear the sounds of life on the river. The beds and pillows were super comfortable. The shower had good hot water and reasonable water pressure. The frosted glass separating the bathroom from the room was a bit disconcerting when travelling with friends. I understand that hotels do it to provide more natural light to the bathroom but it means that whenever someone uses the bathroom overnight you can't help get woken up.
The wifi connection was good and fast. There are no TVs in the rooms, but we had shows on our laptops that we could watch in the evening if we wanted to.
The staff are all friendly, welcoming and helpful and learn from Alf who is one of the owners. He is truly an asset to this resort. His professionalism and provision of information to the time of booking to the time of our departure was excellent. He arranged our airport transfers from Guilin and suggested how we could make the most of our time in his region. We ended up doing a rafting tour from XingPing on our day of arrival. On another day he arranged a full day tour with a personal driver to see the bridges, ancient town, moon hill etc. We had a day to relax at the resort and see the town. The pool was lovely but unheated which meant you couldn't enjoy it comfortably for too long or to late in the day as it got too cold. On our last day Alf suggested we use a driver to see the Longji rice terraces on our way to our late evening flight out of Guilin which was an excellent way to see everything.
We had breakfast, snacks and a dinner at the resort restaurant during our stay and each of the meals was lovely. The fresh fruit juices and milk shakes were awesome. The only average thing we had was a mojito - not much flavour and relatively weak.
I think with word of mouth this resort will only get busier. Take advantage and visit while you can. It has all been newly rebuilt and only officially opened in March 2017. View Less...

Alf the owner is more than happy to chat and spend whatever time is required to advise on tours and anything else he can help with. He was a pleasure to deal with to organise our stay via email and the pre arrival information provided went above and beyond. View Less...
