We stayed this hotel for one night and experience was not good but not too bad: What is good? 1. Architectural style and outlook is modern and contemporary. 2. Hotel room design is creative and innovative 3. Gardening design is excellent and feel like going to the "little" Forest.. 4. Exterior hot spring pool with free drink bar 5. Lighting...

As I didn't stay at the hotel, this is a review based on just the use of the baths. 7 of us traveled to Tai'an at the weekend. Beware, as its strawberry picking season, towns on the way to Tai'an from Taichung such as Da hu are absolutely rammed with tourists and traffic mounted up. Probably took us around two...

(+) Nice hotel which blends nicely into its surroundings. Great hot springs indoor and outdoor. (-) Meals are okay. Too many steps in their dining area-- may not be friendly for elderly or people w/ special needs. The room we stayed was a little bit too dark for me. Some places seem a bit old and need repairs. (--) The...

this place costs you almost USD$ 300 per night but unfortunately it is not worthy at all. The room is extremely dark (we are appointed at the 1st floor) with no sunshine getting in. So when you walk into the room, it is dark with some unpleasant mildew smell. The bed is unbelievably in poor quality. I had backache after...

The room i got was the more expensive one at more NT7200 a night. However, it has a terrible design due to the knee height steps that you need to climb to get to your bed. The shower and toilet was on the other side of the bed, so we had to step down the knee height step again ....

Just spent a night at this "Ontsen". Upon approach to the property, the exterior was not very impressive. The lobby and the rooms were much better. THE public Ontsen had several pools of varying temperatures. There was a pool with very strong jets for back massaging. These pools are fairly crowded. The rooms are not catered to folks with any...

I went there on an afternoon with my friend. It was really relaxing. You can have access to the public bath for 550 NT, they will provide towel, and a place to change your cloths with shower, soap, shampoo,... Etc. You have the choice with the nude place or the public one (so bring your swim suits). They have different...

Hotel is beautiful but the room is getting a bit tired. Each room has its own onsen tub which is great. The room is Japanese style and very dark. The room comes with many steps which is difficult for family with young children. Breakfast needs to be upgraded both quality and variety. Most staffs can't speak English and scared to...

Our family stayed in the Papwaqa suite and the Sun View suites. The hotel and the grounds are beautiful. The suites are spacious with huge bathrooms. The outdoor baths were great. The only downside is having to wear shower caps at the baths. It was strange for us but I guess in the entire scheme of things, a good idea...
