Boutique Hotel

Dali, Yunnan, China

Who are we

DeLuxe Room

We, owners of Villa Verde, named Gerard (Dutch) and Sunny (Bai) started working together in 1999. We organize tours and travels in the beautiful province Yunnan with our business Yunnan Minority Travel. We are successful as proven by our many hundreds of satisfied guests. That is because we know our province very well - but are still passionate to discover it - and are eager to show its beauty and diversity to the rest of the world. We've travelled abroad ourselves quite a lot, so we know your needs. In order to compose the itinerary that suites your wishes, we love to work closely together with you.

In 2008 we started Dali Garden Bed & Breakfast, a home stay in our own house. Our house has rooms we didn't used, upon which we decided to make a Bed & Breakfast. We had, and still have, a lot of guests from all over the world. Since everyone is very pleased to stay in our home, we thought twice. We dreamed of having a small hotel and searched for the perfect location.

By the end of 2012 we realized that we were already in possession of the perfect location. Some years before we bought a farmer's field not far from our house that perfectly fitted our dream. After being granted Chinese local government permission we started to build here. We made a lot of drawings, in which Bai architecture with a touch of European style are combined.

We officially opened Boutique Hotel Villa Verde in April 2014.


Where ever you are in Villa Verde - in your room, in the restaurant, in the lounge, at the veranda, or in the garden - you always enjoy the views over the farmer's fields and the exquisite Erhai Lake.
