“Great choice for relaxing on Lake Erhai”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

This boutique-style hotel, on the shores of Lake Erhai, is a perfect setting to unwind even further in Yunnan province, especially after days spent checking out the old Town, San Ta Si Pagoda & Temple complexes. The garden in front of the front rooms is well designed with individual seating areas, loungers and a hammock. Leah, the owner, is extremely helpful during the reservation process, whilst Frank, front of house, speaks good enough English to be very helpful.

Top tip: Get up early and watch the sun rise above the lake!

Room Tip: Had a ground floor room, with a verandah & seats, with the garden in front and the lake beyond...

We loved our two-day stay here. The location directly on the lake (waves lap against the hotel itself) is incomparable and the patio is a delightful place for afternoon drinks. Frank, the manager, speaks good English and the other staff was very accommodating. The only drawbacks i found were that the hotel is located in a new residential area without anything much of interest and tiny streets mean a 100 yard walk unless you've got a small car. The staff, though, is happy to handle your luggage. the Windoo would be a great place to rest up between sightseeing destinations. I recommend it.

I admire the view of the lake. Just ordering a drink and sitting down on the comfortable chairs gazing out into the lake just feels awesome. I recommend this place if you like awesome views of the lake. Great job Lea!

My family stayed there for a few days. It is great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful views of the lake. My son loved to play with the cats that some times will stay in the garden. To sit in the garden next to the lake, bathing in the moonlight and drink a glass of beer with family or friends is such a wonderful feeling...

Room Tip: We stayed in a room on the second floor. I would suggest to choose a room on the ground floor so as...

The resort features modern rooms which represent real good value. The courtyard has a lot of ambiance and the lake views are lovely. Lea, the owner, is really nice and very helpful in organizing transport, etc.
On the downside, we found water in the room one day (it can happen everywhere, though) and the towels provided were paper thin. We found insects in the room which an electric repellent device would have fixed. Apart from Lea no one else speaks English and breakfast was disappointing.
We liked the location, which is probably 10 minutes outside Dali centre, 25 yuan away - some people might not, though.

Nice boutique hotel located on the bank of Erhai.. except the place is hard to find and they said visitors always got lost in the labyrinth of streets...the lake setting is gorgeous and it is wonderful to lie on the hammock and couch...
