Wow! This place is out of this world. Unreal experience in a wonderland. Service was outstanding, really went above and beyond. Location and setting is outrageous. Best hotel in YangShuo hands down, blows away banyan tree, which although is nice, is clearly 2nd place to Alila. The pool is incredible, as is each building on the property. Rooms are fantastic, reminiscent of Upper House in Hong Kong (#1 hotel in Hong Kong). One constructive criticism: the gym is great but could use a slight augmentation with more equipment. But I don't have a single bad thing to say about this place and I normally love to complain.
