Experiential | Very Good | Excellent | Magnificent | Out of this world



  • Environmentally friendly
  • Outstanding views of the Great Wall from every room
  • Outside Jacuzzi

Brickyard Retreat at Mutianyu Great Wall, as the name suggests, is located at the base of The Great Wall and is a unique opportunity to relax and unwind in the very heart of this iconic landmark. Transformed from historic buildings, the owners have taken careful steps to engage with the local community to ensure the preservation of the village and it’s surroundings making this authentic, eco-friendly retreat is an oasis of calm and relaxation.

The property comprises 25 rooms and 9 luxury homes all with stunning views of the Great Wall. The owners have taken the bold decision not to include telephones or TVs in their rooms to create a peaceful refuge without distraction, however, free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel if you just can't bear the thought of being completely cut off.

After a hike in the beautiful surrounds unwind with a traditional Chinese massage in the spa, take a walk in the beautifully kept private garden or, for a real treat, take a dip in the outside jacuzzi while enjoying yet more sensational views. For the kids (or big kids) the onsite games room and play area is perfect to keep them amused before dinner in the Brickyard Lodge Restaurant which serves traditional Chinese food along with homemade western fare.
