About Alila Yangshuo
Dramatic scenery and intriguing heritage are ubiquitous at Alila Yangshuo. Watch Li River wind between the dark karsts and verdant hills of the delicious landscape. The 117 rooms and suites all offer stylish private terraces with sublime views. The minimalist interiors were formulated by award-winning designer Ju Bin to complement the pronounced beauty of the location.
In the historic Sugar Pressing Room, find the Sugar House restaurant. Eat before the window frontage or dine alfresco on the terrace. The international and regional favourites served here are all prepared with fresh, local ingredients. You can also enjoy the Basket Bazaar experience, harking back to the days when people would lower baskets down to street level for street-vendors to fill with snacks.
As well as unmatched style and comfort, Alila Yangshuo boasts an array of indulgent facilities and exciting activities. Enjoy the onsite gym, below-ground spa and well-stocked library. Meanwhile, kids are kept active, engage and entertained at Play Alila. The legacy of the resort remains completely intact. As you tour each unique building, learn all about the production of artisan sugar – you can even try your hand at it. You can also get active with karst climbing, and hikes and boat rides up the stunning Li River.
