The Lowdown

If you’d travelled to every almost every corner of the earth twice over and were looking for one last dose of awe, Fuli would be the sort of place you’d be relieved to stumble upon. This beautifully preserved ancient town is the origin of China’s famous hand-painted fans, and home to a number of prominent artists who are no doubt inspired by the surrounding landscapes.
The environmentally conscious Banyan Tree group unveiled their sensitively designed Yangshou property back in 2014, in a sleepy plot beside the crystalline Li River. In the mornings, there’s no sight quite like it as the mist enshrouds the jade-green mountains, and by day, you’ll be spoilt for ways to explore the various valleys, caves and climbs in this natural playground. A signature Banyan Tree experience is taking to the water on a traditional bamboo raft – specially crafted by local fishermen but with a few comfy enhancements, of course – and serenely passing along the route known as the ‘diamond waterway’.
The panorama is such that its earned Banyan Tree Yangshou a place in the ‘Top 10 Hotels for Romance’ category of the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice awards 2017, though we suspect that may also have something to do with the world-class spa, award-winning design and sophisticated Guangxi dining. This is a destination that calls for a soulful choice of accommodation. With subtle oriental motifs, local artistry and all the right modern luxuries, the Banyan Tree villas fit the bill exquisitely.

We stayed here for four days with our 9 month old baby - this hotel is super kid friendly! Great cots, baby chairs and staff that are so kind to kids! Our baby was too young to participate in any of the activities, but there were activities, like peacock feeding and fish feeding, specially for kids. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The restaurants were pretty good - take a careful look at some of the labels on the breakfast buffet, a few of them got seriously 'lost in translation'.
