We stayed at this hotel twice, love their service, the view of the room and the outdoor swimming pool is just second to none. Feed the golden fish in the patio is a must thing to do, lol. Would love to go back again soon.
We arrived very late at night due to our flight delay but the staff was extremely friendly and helpful! The traditional Chinese style hotel is in a lovely park where a lot of local people come to do Thai Chi, Meditations, Yoga, Dance. The following...More
Neat, clean hotel. Friendly personel. Breakfast was good. I would say a good three or four star hotel if I use the European rating system. I would come here again. Not cheap, I think but it is up to Eiropeam standards.
The name of this place is the Guilin Yi. (Yi is pronounced as in YEE HAA, but is a 4th tone, which means that you say it as an Order, as if you were telling someone "Hey!" Or, if you are a Monty Python fan,...More
The hotel is in the middle of a park and is approach by their golf-buggy style transport from the park gate. Reception is friendly - they have good English - and in rather grand hall. We were back and forth, so that we had 3...More

The Li River trip was booked through the hotel. Pay at the front desk. They picked us up at the hotel entrance at 8 a.m. sharp and took us by golf cart to the front gate. Then a driver took us to another pick-up point and we were picked up by a tour bus. The Tour Bus took us to the boat. The trip on the river was about 4 hours and included a box lunch (but you can pay for a better lunch). Once at Yangshuo you have the option of staying overnight or staying in Yangshuo for a couple hours then come back on the bus. The bus back dropped us off at the hotel. We compared the price with several other people on the tour who booked from other hotels and tour operators and we all paid the same price.
I don't know if there is an airport shuttle. I think there is, but I didn't book it in advance, so I just took a taxi.
As for the Rice Terrace, no idea. You will have to ask the hotel.
No idea at all about Club Med. I suggest Google Maps might have a general idea about the proximate distance.
Enjoy your trip!
