Valleluna Yangshuo
Ranked #25 of 441 Yangshuo County B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 December 2012

We fully enjoyed our stay at Valleluna Inn. After working in the fast paced city for 6 months, I needed a much deserved break from the noise and congested roads. Valleluna Inn is away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist hotspots, it's wonderfully peaceful, and a perfect getaway. The owner, Terry, and his staff are very helpful and will assist you with anything, from bicycle trips, pick-ups, to helping you book bus tickets to your next destination. We had breakfast and dinner at the Inn, and it was delicious!

The only problem travellers might have is that the buses to and from the Inn stops early, which wasn't a problem for us because we weren't interested in going into the city centre at night. Terry might be able to help you out, but remember to talk to him in advance.

If you want to have vacation in a quiet place, and you want a simple life, Valleluna is the best option you have, the price is quite fair, the food is cook by the hotel owner Terry. He is such a nice and funny guy.

In a word , if you travel inYangshuo, you can not miss this.

Room Tip: Frankly, if you want a really conveniency hotel, this is not your option, b/c it is locate right in...

Valleluna is a place with great character and history thanks to its old farm homes and barns that have been turned into simple but beautiful guesthouses. Owner Terry and his staff have done everything to make our stay a great experience! If you're tired of the noisy crowds and flashy lights of Yangshuo and are looking a quiet and authentic country-side experience in the beautiful karst mountains of Guilin, Valleluna is a wonderful place to stay. We went there for climbing, biking, hiking and kayaking and found it a perfect base for our explorations.

We moved from the centre of Yangshuo to Valleluna and all of us were really glad we did. Yangshuo is very busy, loud and touristy so to move to a tiny village and stay in traditional Chinese accommodation was ideal. The owner, Terry, speaks very good English and arranged bikes, kayaking, taxi to the airport (half hour away), any type of food we asked for and he even taught us to cook our favourite dishes. There is lovely walking straight out of the door (Terry drew us a map of a 4 hours hike we did) and moon hill was a 20-30 minute bike ride away. Coming back to Valleluna after a day out was a great way to chilll out after the day, have a beer and eat some great food. Make sure you ask for the sweet and sour pork and the fried noodles!

The guest house sits at the foot of a hill, it's about 15mins' drive from the centre of Yangshu but far enough to get away from the crowd. All rooms are converted from a traditional cottage, simple but comfortable. The owner is so creative that he built a small traditional room inside as bath room. Days at Valle Luna were so cozy, waking up naturally, taking a walk to the riverside, hiking, biking, fishing or just enjoying a cup of coffee on the terrace. Very relaxing and refreshing! PS: Owner Terry is your go-to guy in Yangshuo, he is local and has been working in tourism industry over a decade; chief/driver Lin made the best "Beer fish" and chicken soup; Xiao Jiang has very nice personality, a good hiking/biking buddy.

The experience of staying at Valleluna guesthouse is unique. Placed in an original old chinese village we found this experience of staying here very special and wonderful. Terry is a great host and helped us organise our trip, and even showed us the beautiful landscape for several hours!! He put a lot of time to make this old houses look so lovely. - And he is a great cook also! There is nothing left we could have asked for! Thank you, Terry!

What a great Idea, converting a farming hamlet, cottages and manor house, into a new kind of holiday village. Owner/manager Terry could not do enough for me and I got a real taste of China that I couldn't find anywhere else. The rooms were furnished to a high modern standard, the best of both worlds, set in amazing countryside.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Run away from the bustling packed West street of Yangshuo, follow the road, the flow of the river, see the elegant hills, the crisp clear water during the 16km trip to the little farming village Luoyue Wan ( the moon set bay). Located between the mountains and the cannel, about 100 families remain in this traditional village while most of the youth left their old home where they grew up with their parents and grandparents. They left the silence dimgrey roof tiles, aging earth colored walls, while the old man still smoke his bamboo water pipe by the door, simply watching the sun rise and set, watching the seasons come and go.The guest house is located at the north corner of the village, a landlord’s manor which dates back 200years since the Qing dynasty era. The wooden shrine and fort along with the houses and the land was assigned to 16 families during the revolution who’s descendants are still in the village. 15rooms are available for rent. Each has been renovated while maintaining the original look and feel. They were adapted into a guest house, not luxurious, not fashionable, it simply represents the famous Chinese poem“pick up eastern rose near my fence, carefree and content looking at the mountain to my south”Look far through the window, a farmer finishing his day, walking slowly behind his water buffalo and dog on the quiet road, steam and smoke rises from small kitchens. It’s twilight hour. The distance between the road and fields starts to blur, the mountain peaks melt into the star light. The local chatter and distant barks create a calming atmosphere. Time to feast! ... more   less
