Welcome to Banyan Tree Yangshuo

Dear Valued Guests,

Welcome to bucolic and beautiful Yangshuo!

My team and I are delighted to welcome you to Banyan Tree Yangshuo. The first international hotel & resort operator to launch a world-class resort in Yangshuo, China. At Banyan Tree Yangshuo you seamlessly blend into the charms of southeast China with its stunning panorama of jade-green mountains and relaxing rivers to our discerning guests.
The legendary beauty of Yangshuo is often extolled in classic Chinese poetry and immortalized in traditional scroll paintings. Heart-stirring scenes of dramatic karst mountains and the quiet grace of the resplendent Li River create a surreal backdrop of utter tranquility. Love is in the air.

Revel in the beauty of Yangshuo's famous karst landscape while cruising down the Li River on one of our personalized private bamboo boats complete with convenient amenity to surprise and delight. We offer numerous activities for guests to experience the region's unique history and culture. The Li River provides an ink-wash painting of mountain views and riverscapes like no other in the world.

The waterways around Fuli Town provide canoeing and rafting opportunities. Guests can trek through the Karst Mountains meeting locals along the way. Specially designed tours like the Village Discovery and Yangshuo Adventure Experience.

The Yangshuo Countryside Experience allows guests to explore scenic spots in Fuli town including the Mazu Temple, Karst Cave, Dutou Village and the Three-Color Pond, each telling its own historical or cultural story.

Fuli Town is also known as "China's Home of Fan Painting". Our guests can participate in Contemporary Chinese Art Painting Classes to create their own authentic customized fans to bring home as a cultural souvenir of this time honored art.

The Yangshuo resort's four restaurants and bars lead guests through an extraordinary journey of culinary discovery. Ming Yue is the resort's all-day dining restaurant featuring wholesome breakfast buffets, international delights and local favorites.

Bai Yun is a fine-dining establishment featuring a menu of exquisite Guangxi and Canton specialties, where guests can choose to be seated in the main dining room or in any of the six opulent private dining suites.

The Pool Bar is a place for guests to enjoy a refreshing cocktail and some light bites after a relaxing swim; as well as seafood BBQs on weekends.

The Lobby Lounge offers aromatic coffees, fragrant teas, vintage wines and delightful cocktails. At night we turn the music up and the lights down. Enjoy the romance of an intimate cocktail in a romantic lively indoor outdoor venue.

Destination Dining is one of the Banyan Tree's signature experiences where guests can choose to have an intimate, romantic dinner in the villas, in suite or even over-looking the Li River.

The highly trained team of hoteliers and I here at Banyan Tree Yangshuo mountain resort eagerly look forward to welcoming you with our unique style; making your stay an unparalleled and unforgettable experience.

Sincerely,

Glen Cook, General Manager, Banyan Tree Yangshuo
