Stayed for three nights in a large 6 bedroom house attached to the Dragon Resort Hotel just outside Wuyishan in the resort area. The house had a driver with it as part of the package who was able to bring us to several tourist locations.
The house is set in the well landscaped grounds of the hotel with a private guarded entrance. Up some steps to large double doors the house opened into a large hallway and sunken living room equipped with a large TV, table, tea service and large white seating area. Off this room was a double door access to the back garden overlooking a small brook. At the foyer level the room extended to the left to a large table with seating for about 8 people overlooked by a fully equipped galley kitchen. This overlooked an outdoor swimming pool and the river. To the right and up a step or two was a more private smaller dining area. A guest bathroom was also available at this level. Upstairs were three large bedrooms, two with 7ft double beds and the 3rd with two large single beds. All had well equipped bathrooms either with shower rooms or baths.
Downstairs in the house were a further three bedrooms similar to size and service as those upstairs. A large comfortable sitting room with large screen TV was also downstairs as well as a meeting room with a table that could accommodate 12 or more people. A seperate bathroom complete with sauna is available at this level.
Breakfast was served in another building on the campus of this resort hotel. A wide variety of local and european foods are available, all tasty and attractively presented. The house was supposed to have high speed internet connection but this was not working while we were there and the hotel was not able to help us. Laundry services were prompt but did not put the clothes (a suit) on hangers so although clean they were crushed.
The hotel is located about 5 minutes drive from the main shopping area of Wuyishan resort area. Shopping consists of wood and stone carving, tea and other small local requirements.
If there is one thing you should do while in this area it is to spend an evening, regardless of the weather, at the local Wuyi Mountains show about the history of tea. It is presented in a local park and employs many local people but it is one of the best shows I have every seen in my life. It is designed by the man you designed the opening ceremony for the Beijing Olympics and it shows. It reminded me of the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden dragon in its use of colour adn scene setting with light and sound. Not to be missed.
