One of the latest additions to boutique hotel brand Small Luxury Hotels of the World, Yangshuo Jora Hotel sits in one of the top scenic spots in Guilin, China, against the mist-tipped Karst mountains.
Stepping into Yangshuo Jora Hotel is like walking into a classical Chinese painting. The design is that of a fusion of man and nature and conveys a journey of finding oneself in nature.
This area of China, where the hotel is located in, advocates a calmer, quieter way of life and it’s reflected in the guest room design. Minimalist and sophisticated, all the suites overlook verdant mountain vistas or Lijiang River views.
Around the hotel, there are plenty of spots to curl up. Guests can capitalise on the hotel's 500 books in genres ranging from architecture, autobiography and design to science-fiction.
And the best part? Guests can wind down for the day at the hotel's complimentary tea time at the cosy Kong Tea Room. Accommodating only eight guests at a time, there’re a collection of tea potteries and the tea master will brew tea according to your preferences or seasonal highlights.
