Husband and I stayed here for two nights, we did the half day tour on day one and walked the trails on day two by ourselves. The hotel is in the best location in Taroko , with their excellent service, wonderful meals and the amazing infinity pool, we felt truly pampered staying here.

Before or after the "must to visit" Taroko National Park, enjoy the night at the Silk Palace. Your room should face the river and the murmur of the water will serve as lullaby.Clean and well equipped rooms and wide selection at breakfast.

Silks Place is a wonderful all round hotel amidst the beautiful backdrop of Taroko Gorge. Whilst there are a few things that could be improved upon, the overall experience - from room quality to service - is worthy of the highest rating. We booked onto the retreat floor and had a very spacious room with plenty of facilities. The bathroom... More

In the middle of the park, this is a good location to discover the gorges. This hotel offers you clean and spacious room. The view and the rooftop is nice with a spa and swimming pool. However there is not much to do at the hotel, no bar and very tight schedule for lunch and diner. The buffet is good... More

This is an amazing looking hotel. The views are worth coming back, even though the staff service isn't great. This is nothing like a Four Seasons. Again another place that has amazing facilities, but the lack of training for staff. I guess it's hard to hire good workers so far away from Taipei. This could be a five star hotel,... More

This hotel is in the most amazing location. Surrounded by beautiful mountains in the Taroko National Park. The rooms were super comfy & large. The restaurants were a little expensive however the food was really nice. The best thing about this hotel though are the 2 pools on the roof plus the few hot tubs and the many sun lounges.... More
