Travel Experience

Yangshuo Village Inn is the perfect getaway from noisy downtown. The hotel is built inside a beautifully restored local home, with another building next door that makes use of a rescued mud-brick farmhouse. Thus, the hotel captures the essence of the local culture with its exterior and builds upon that with its interior decorating. The rooftop restaurant, Luna, offers stunning views of the surrounding karst mountains, and serves dishes prepared from ingredients grown in their own organic garden.

Responsibility

Yangshuo Village Inn is committed to keeping Yangshuo beautiful for future generations and business practices that preserve the environment and contribute to the local community. In construction, they took many steps to ensure that the hotel was built sustainably. All guest-room furniture is handmade from locally sustainable bamboo and no disposable products of any kind are used. All guest-room floors are polished concrete and use no tile, wood or stone. Hot water is solar-heated. Even the shampoo and bath gel bottles are refillable ceramic works of art. No plastic bottles are distributed as all guest-rooms are supplied with aluminium drinking water flasks and hot water flasks. Also, They grow organic vegetables and herbs for the restaurant, whereas all food waste is recycled for animal feed. All non-food waste is saved for recycling and only non-toxic cleaning agents are used.

Business Case

Yangshuo Village Inn works actively to ensure that the greater Yangshuo community benefits from their operation. All staff members come from surrounding villages and receives English/skills training from a full-time foreign coach. Additionally, 3% of annual profits go to the China-US Medical Foundation, which provides access to treatment and education for disabled children; one staff member is a beneficiary.
