Before it was converted to an ornate and beautiful hotel, China’s stunning Alila Yangshuo was a working sugar mill. Now retrofitted with stylish simplicity and set in scenery that would look the part on the silver screens in Hollywood, Alila Yangshuo has to be seen to be fully appreciated.
The hotel sits in the heart of a community rich with culture, undisturbed natural elements, and comfort. Guests receive an authentic and well-orchestrated reprieve from their daily lives when they stay at the Alila. The essence of the hotel can be broken down into five main themes; cultural learning, conscious living, active spirits, culinary arts, and couple celebration. Each discipline is executed in multiple areas throughout the property.
Known worldwide, as a paradise on Earth, Yangshuo is full of beautiful landscape views of the Karst mountains, rolling hills, and flowing streams. Many guests come to realize an artistic air about the place and see that there is much more it has to offer. This cultivated perception was intentional and designed masterfully by Dong Gong of Vector Architects. From the outside, the destination shocks, and inside is no different. Curated by award-winning designer, Ju Bin, each room pays homage to a horizontal space design, intended to integrate the new with the old and directly reference the unique history of Chinese style and architecture.
While the building itself may be the most impressive element of the Alila Yangshuo, head on over to the site to see what other amenities and offerings it has to offer.
