Secret Garden - Latest Reviews

Date: 4th of Dec, 2017 - Simply stunning - 5/5 on Tripadvisor

A really magical place. We booked a deluxe suite which was wonderful, with lots of space both indoors and outdoors, and a lovely view from the windows. Rooms were rather cold despite the heating that was available, but the bed had an electric blanket so very cosy at night. Electrical sockets were perhaps not optimally located. Continue reading..

“The food here was great, and the staff incredibly friendly and helpful. The location is a bit tucked away but that is a wonderful feature. Very relaxing location, you could easily spend all your time here.”

“We loved every nook of this place! From entering through the brick wall and meandering down the stone road, past pots of overflowing flowers and stepping over into the courtyard. Absolutely charming. Little courtyards connected by stone pathways make this a lovely retreat. It's eclectic and artistically created. Continue reading..

Date: 11th of Nov, 2017 - The best property we stayed in in 6 weeks - 5/5 on Tripadvisor

This is a must do for anyone who is interested in getting the true feel of a rural village, staying in an old mansion what has been done up.

Very very impressed by the staff, but the building and its facilities and by the themeing which has been kept through. Had dinner and breakfast at the hotel and quite frankly why would you go out for dinner, it was great. Continue reading..

Date: 31st of Oct, 2017 - Peaceful, calm and historical - 5/5 on Tripadvisor

Loved this place. Beautifully restored, interesting nooks and crannies, lamps, plants etc. Room was spacious, clean bathroom, friendly and helpful staff. We hired bikes and rode through the fields around the village. The food in the hotel restaurant was yummy (but dont bother with the coffee).

Date: 28th of Oct, 2017 - Wonderful Retreat; Will be back! - 5/5 on Tripadvisor

We highly recommend the Tea Cozy Retreat (aka Secret Garden Hotel) as your choice in Yangshuo. It is absolutely beautiful and quite a surprise in the middle of a chinese village. The room size is very large as is a quite modern bathroom with all the amenities you could ask for. The outdoor gym area with a quiet waterfall off to the sides provides a true Zen like atmosphere.

Our Story

The Secret Garden story began in 2009 when Fengzi decided to try & save from destruction a gorgeous Qing Dynasty courtyard house in Jiuxian Village, Yangshuo County.

With the help of the Jiuxian Village Leader, after 5 months of negotiating with the 6 landlords, Fengzi managed to lease the property and a few days later leased an adjacent house that had all but fallen to the ground.

Unfortunately the landlord's wanted the cash for the full 20 year lease up front which left Fengzi penniless and unable to renovate the buildings. He approached Faye with the idea of opening a hotel together which would hopefully generate income to lease and renovate further houses, thereby preserving a small segment of local Chinese history & culture. To date we have leased 5 buildings & completed the renovation of 4 of these.
