Yangshuo Mountain Retreat honored by Conde Nast Traveler

Posted on July 25th, 2013 in Uncategorized by admin

Congratulations to the Mountain Retreat for earning a spot as Finalist for the 2013 World Savers Awards.

Here’s what Conde Nast Traveler says about this award:

“When you work in the travelsphere, you hear a lot of talk about green travel, responsible travel, sustainable travel, eco-friendly travel. But when we see that kind of action, we at Condé Nast Traveler want to do more than talk about it—we want to honor it. That’s why, since 2007, Condé Nast Traveler has handed out our annual World Savers Awards to travel companies that are powerful forces of change within their industries. These are companies and hotel properties that excel in various categories: some contribute positively to local communities, some are active in environmental issues, some even protect wildlife.”

Mountain Retreat is honored among Small Resorts and the only Finalist in China.
