Located on the famous Li River, the Shangri-La provides the best accommodation in Guilin. The main building lacks somewhat in style, but the service, views, location and rooms more than make up for that. In addition the property offers an indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a state of the art gym and even outdoor tennis courts, making it an excellent place to relax after sightseeing. With Guilin's gorgeous oblong limestone mountains right outside your window, the strong sense of place more than makes up for its slightly ‘large hotel’ feel. We recommend staying in Club Rooms that provide access to the Club Lounge, a quiet respite for taking meals and relaxing when the property is busy.
