A hotel for the whole family

travelling with kids...


Yangshuo is a paradise for families with kids. Beautiful landscapes, fresh air, a safe environment and plenty of activities to keep parents and kids easily entertained. But traveling with children can be quite tiredsome and a good family hotel can be hard to find. Look no further, the Yangshuo Village Retreat - owned and run by a young Belgian-Chinese family - is a place where we would like to stay ourselves. Our quiet countryside location void from traffic offers plenty of fresh air and space for your kids to enjoy themselves while you don't need to worry about their safety. Our staff members love children as well so there is always someone around to entertain them and make sure they have a fantastic time while you as parents can enjoy a welcome break.


We realise children's tastes differ from those of our older guests, so we are currently working on our special children's menu. Great food at great value for the little ones.

Many children love this show, its truly unique. Not only do you get to see this historical and cultural tradition, but you have the fun of traveling down the Li-River in the early evening which is a beautiful sight. The boat will also stop after the main fishing so the kids can see the birds up close and there is the opportunity to take some great photos.
