Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This wood-based village is really cool. The staff are mostly local people. The dinner show is full of surprise! The dancer showed the tradition of Taroko and the boss really took care of the staff well.

You may reserve the shuttle if you do not want to drive. The room is clean and spacious. You can also take a walk in the breathtaking scene after meals.

You can find traditional foods in dinner and breakfast. You also have modern food in meals.

I really recommend everyone to visit this hotel to enjoy the beauty of Taroko.

We chose this hotel because it was one of the few options of staying inside the park. Originally we had intended to use public transport as a means of traveling to park attractions but after reading about road closures and curtailed bus routes we opted at the last minute to hire a car from Hualien. This was a good decision as contrary to our original understanding the bus did not stop in Buluowan and the nearest stop was down a lengthy path to Swallow Grotto.
The hotel itself was okay. Spacious rooms, plentiful hot water with a good shower and comfortable beds so all basics were covered. Most accommodation was in semi-detached single storey buildings built in an oval pattern around a central green area. There is a seating area in front of each cabin and the way in which accommodation is laid out is spacious with an emphasis on nature. The area is a centre for indigenous communities so there is much focus on their culture both in multiple display areas around the grounds and in a daily cultural show taking place each evening. The grounds also have an informative walk and there is access to a suspension bridge although this was closed during our visit (first and third Mondays).
Dinner is buffet style. In theory between 6.00 and 7.30 pm daily although it seems to be expected that you are down by 6.15pm and with only limited replenishment of dishes, this is probably the best option. Be aware you are pitched into total darkness at around 6.20 for a five minute preview of the 7.30 cultural show, a little off-putting for meal eating. Emphasis is on local cuisine but there is enough variety to cater for most tastes. Breakfast is similar buffet style again with enough options for most.
There is parking available on site and the hotel is a short distance from the main village cultural centre.

This is a hidden paradise on earth, caused millions of ears ago when the Pacific and Eurasian Plates collided, creating stunningly steep cliffs, possibly comparable in some ways to Zion and Yosemite National Parks. Aboriginal people settled here after the Ice Age, and their descendants inhabit this land, and work in this lodge. We got to know people who work there, but just could hardly breathe at the beauty we saw looking up from our bungalow as the cliffs soared to the sky. I went out of a morning walk and encountered a family of macaque monkeys near Bamboo trail. In the days, we caught bus 310 going back and forth through 9 turns tunnel and Swallow Grotto. I saw no other caucasions or other foreigners in 3 days, which means this place has not been discovered.

I stayed here for 3 nights in April 2014. The huts were comfortable and the staff were friendly and did their best to speak English. The mountain setting was very dramatic. Although you generally need to book a car to move around the walking trails, you can walk down to 'Swallow Grotto' (see photo), which is near the hotel. It takes about 1 hour to get there from Hualien train station.

Large amounts of food were served for dinner, including BBQ Pork. Afterwards, there was an enthusiastic cultural performance (see photo), hotel staff are locals descended from the Aboriginal people ruled the area before the Japanese moved through there in the 1920's.

If you're traveling as a couple or with your family, don't miss this place. It's the best place to stay in the Taroko / Hualien area, hands down. Be sure to get the delicious and unique dinner and breakfast too. It's a little village of cabins (two guest rooms per cabin, sharing a completely soundproof wall) surrounded on all sides by towering mountains. There are short hikes on site, and visitors are provided with souveniers and little games to play there. The rooms are cozy, clean, modern, spacious, and beautifully designed and decorated. The staff was all caring and kind. Overall, one of the best resort / hotel experiences I've had, incluing many places that cost 5 times this much.

If you don't speak Chinese, consider skipping the evening show.

Located at a very beautiful valley near by Taroko. All the rooms are surrounded by high mountains, greens.
There is aboriginal show every evening. It was not professional at all, but thanks to this, we did laugh a lot. What a wonderful night!
We booked a room with dinner and breakfast. The dinner set was aboriginal cuisine, the hotel's sincerity can be found in it.
Strongly recommend!

I found this hotel thanks to one of the TA Taiwan experts who gave the link and loved the fact that it was a traditional aborignal vilage style hotel. My husband and I had wanted to stay in this hotel, but then we changed our plans as some friends wanted to come with us and they didn't want to spend too much money on the accommodation.
Before we knew that our friend wanted to join us, I had actually rung this hotel up before our trip to book a rooom but they were full.
Then when they told us that they wanted to join us, we booked 2 rooms at a B&B/minsu in Hualien, because in our party of 4, there was one who wanted the cheapest place possible.
However, when we were driving down from Taipei to Taroko, this same person didn't want to stay in Hualien anymore because she (and all of us) thought that the cities were quite ugly, and so she wanted to stay in the park (which was what I had orignially wanted)
We reached the Visitor's Headquarters in Taroko it was just after they had closed. The lights were off and the staff were mingling around inside. I went in and asked them for a map and one of the ladies who worked there, got us once and when i asked her about places to stay, she recommended the Youth Activity Centre, or the Grand Formosa.
I had seen both the Grand Formosa online and Leader Village prior to our trip and didn't like the look of it, so I suggested that we try Leader Hotel even thought they had told me they were fully booked before we left for Taiwan. We rang them up and they said that they had rooms for teh night, so we headed there.
The hotel is LOVELY. It's set in a field and there are the mountains all around it.
When we arrived, one of our friends felt that it reminded her of some aborignal thing in Australia. (Taiwan did have people from Austonesia, after all).
The rooms are like little log cabins. There are 2 matresses in each room, the bathroom was a little small, but the nicest thing was that the decor was very tastefully done.
There was also air-conditioing in the room and they gave us the electric plug like thing to ward off the "what-I-call-monster-mosquitoes" in the room.
They had the usual 2 bottles of mineral water, toothbrush, toothpaste, shaver, shaving cream, towels, body lotion, shampoo, etc. There were also bedroom slippers and a hairdryer. I have to add though, that I was VERY impressed that every hotel we stayed in had all these amenities (even the B&B at Sun Moon Lake and Chingjing Farm).
Once you step out of your room, you're on the patio and you can chill out there...there's also a lovely field in front, so it's also good if you have children as they can run around all they want.
At night, we had a cultural show - I just saw them gettting ready, but didn't stay for that as I felt that these poor girls had to probablyt put uyp this dance every night for the tourists. My husband stayed and took some photos...he also said that they explained and talked about the aboriginal tribe of the area, but he couldn't understand a thing as it was in Mandarin and he can't speak nor understand that.
As for food, well, we took the package of room, dinner and b'fast. They also have a package where it's just room and breakfast, but then you'd have to drive out somewhere for dinner...
Because it was a package, we couldn't order a la carte, but the set menu was so yummy because it was traditional style food, served very much in the traditional style way. Verey much like a Japanese bento set but instead of a box, it was a tray and the plates were in wood or bamboo. They also gave us a complimentary millet wine (very sweet, very nice, tastes a bit like honey mead). Tea/ Coffee and juices were complimentary throughout the meal..You just had to help yourself.
Breakfast was OK. Bread, butter, scrambled eggs, noodles, porridge, etc. An Ok spread.
Service was also very good. Staff were very friendly. We never had any bad encounters with any Taiwanese.
They also gave each guest a scarf with a design of the 2 people of the tribe (at least it looks like that, I haven't opened it yet). What was also cute was they also asked us to fill up a questionaire to comment on the service (which we didn't as it was in mandarin and we all couldn't read it), but they also had this "contest", where you had to guess the number of wooden animals (sculptures) at the entrance nad you'd get a prize per room. Of course, even if you didn't guess it correcly, you'd still get the prize, which was a mug, per room. A very cute touch.
We stopped by the Grand Fornosa the nexxt day for tea and were sooooo happy to have chosen Leader Hotel. Gold, gilded, and the balcony of the rooms faced each other. I mean, if you stay at Taroko, woulnd't you take advantage of the view? At least place the balconies such that they'd face the gorges, instead of the rooms opposite. Not well thought out. It was a very Chinese style decor. Not the tradtional Chinese style, but the nouveau riche type of style. They had a gold trellis where they hung plastic grapes and vines to simulate a vineyard....! I would like to stress very strongly here that this is personal opinion, but I don't like that kind of style. I find that very tacky and absolutely no taste at all.
Leader Taroko Village beats Formosa hands down, any time. You'd feel a lot more peaceful there than garrulous Formosa.

The rooms are actually a bit better than the photographs. There's a tribal touch everywhere reflective of the indigenous people living in the area and it fits well with the location.
Food is excellent. As with elsewhere in Taiwan, fish is much better. They have set menus but there is a limited a la carte too and portions are good. Service is really good and prompt. Staff was deligent and remembered every little thing you ask for; you don't have to ask again the next time.
The best part is that this is right inside the park surrounded by mountains.

Everything was better than I expected. I was worried it would be very rustic but everything was clean and the surroundings are very pretty. The main cabin room is basic - just mattresses laying on the floor based on the number of beds you need - flat screen TV set included. The bathroom was small but clean - I was just happy with hot water and a working toilet. They offered your basic toiletries -toothbrushes, etc. The kids had a blast jumping from bed to bed and playing outside for hours. It really is a beautiful area. You can hike around the area. The "lodge" is cute - check-in and meals are here. The dinners were pretty good decent - definitely Asian (rice is served in a bamboo rod). The breakfast was too Asian for my Western standards - but there were scrambled eggs (a bit watery) and toast. The "porridge" is basically rice in water. The aboriginal show was pathetic so don't bother - or sit in the back so you can sneak out early. There were about 12 unhappy girls from about 5-15 years dancing. Unfortunately at the end the girls danced provocatively to a Lady Gaga tune not appropriate for young teens. Overall, I highly recommend this place. We hired Tiffany as a local guide. Her name is available on TripAdvisor. We were awaken from our sleep by an earthquake which is very common in this area. No problems though.

Hi, this is Cliff, trip leader of a group of 7 from Ramblers Holidays in the UK touring and hiking around Taiwan.

We stayed at the Bulowan Leader hotel in Taroko National Park last week. We were due to to stay at the Grand Formosa, but ended up staying at the Bulowan Leader hotel as the GF is closed for refurbishment. Lucky for us! What a superb location - the hotel consists of 30+ log cabins on a grassy plateau looking out over the bottom of Taroko gorge, surrounded by mountain peaks. Nothing else nearby, just the peace and quiet of nature, broken by the sounds of the macaques early in the morning. You can often see them in the trees beyond the cabins.

Cabins are well-furnished and clean, all mod cons including TV, wifi access, with veranda (balcony) and chairs. Breakfast (buffet) and dinner are both fine. There's a free aboriginal cultural show each evening after dinner, nothing fancy, just the local school students singing, dancing. Good fun, join in if you want to, we did! There's a collection afterwards for the typhoon disaster relief fund, but no pressure.

Staff were friendly and helpful, but limited English.

Thoroughly recommended if you want a quiet, relaxing base right in the middle of this magnificent national park.
