We stayed at the hotel with the two day package including a half day tour of Taroko National Park. From the moment we were greeted by the shuttle service at Hualian station until we were dropped back the next day, we experienced fantastic service with great attention to detail and customer care. The hotel and facilities were luxurious as you...

Wonderful location in the middle of the awesome Taroko National Park. The staff is friendly but a little bit more matter-of-fact like people in East Taiwan tend to be - nice. I recommend the Chinese restaurant, better than the Western buffet in my opinion. The Spa is good, the surrounding beautiful and has a great view, but the massage is...

Just adding some details to the other rave reviews: the rooms are wonderfully spacious with great views. The king sized bed was about the size of two queens joined -- you could get lost in there!! The Chinese restaurant is a fine dining experience. If you take the set dinner, the portions are overly generous and there are many courses,...

This is the best hotel in the 5-day tour (Viator) we took in southern Taiwan. The hotel is built right in the Taroko National Park and you can even see a bit of the gorge waterfalls right in the hotel gardens and paths. Our hotel room offers two queen size beds and a wonderful bathroom, and a balcony so you...

Our room overlooking the gorge was amazing and we enjoyed watching the monkeys crossing the river every morning! It is very peaceful and relaxing. The rooftop area at night has a beautiful atmosphere. We enjoyed the music there one evening. The food and breakfast was lovely. The staff were extremely helpful to us in booking our trains and travel. A...
