A Beautiful Legend
Yangshuo has long been considered by the people of China to be at the heart of a 'natural' paradise. Legend is that many years ago an old dragon also heard about the region. The dragon escaped from heaven and came to Yangshuo. So attracted by one river in particular, the dragon stayed for a time at its ancient bridge. But one day it happened that a local farmer took the dragon by surprise. The dragon was startled and flew away, never to be seen again. Very quickly, the story of the encounter spread throughout Yangshuo County. Later on, the people named the bridge the Yulong Bridge because "Yulong" means "Meet the dragon." They also named the river Yulong. The Hidden Dragon Villa Hotel is situated at the place where the dragon is said to have disappeared. Even so, some people say that the dragon still remains here to enjoy the river and to protect the beautiful countryside, and that it brings luck to the people who live here. This is why the people around our countryside hotel are believed to lead very happy lives.

Situated in the stunning and peaceful countryside, the Hidden Dragon Villa Hotel is just 5 kilometers from the town of Yangshuo and 1.5 kilometers from the beginning of the super highway to Guilin Airport.

From the Roof Garden Restaurant, or the gate of our hotel, or even from many of the windows in our guestrooms, you can see the Yulong River ( Yulong means "Meet the dragon") flowing serenely among many rice paddies and bamboo forests.
