My wife, daughter, grand-daughter and I had a wonderful stay here. An absolutely wonderful setting in the mountains, with serene ambiance. The food was varied and great! The staff was very attentive to our needs. A must-do when visiting Taiwan!

The Silks place seems to promise more. But maybe we were unlucky, to crowded, the staff weren't able to follow. It was cold, we were freezing everywhere, only upon intervention of our private guide they provided extra heating and blankets. Even in the Chinese restaurant, the Buffet restaurant being unbearable. There are pools and a spa, but we felt much... More

There's no heat. The wireless is terrible because everyone is trying to connect at once. Service is lousy, because the second an employee realizes you speak English, they're scared of you and avoid serving you until the very last opportunity. Food in the buffet was alright. The rooftop is nice, but the area is old. By no standards are the... More

I was there on 2nd Dec with my wife, my parents and two young daughters. No doubt this is a perfect choice for travelling with toddlers. Children facilities are marvellous, not to mention the indoor (cold) and outdoor swimming pool (warm). All sort of activities suitable for all available all day long. Surrounding are perfect location for jungle trekking. Taroko... More

First, the good. Probably the best hotel in Taroko. At the luxury end of the scale. Ugly building but modern Chinese/contemporary interior. Superb service embarrassingly excellent when compared to the sullen/lack of service in many Western hotels. Enough English spoken. Comfortable rooms (but see below). Magnificent roof terraces; open fireplaces; hot tubs and loungers with pool (unheated). Had a Retreat... More

After several hours drive from Yilan, we were looking forward to our stay in Silks Taroko Hotel. We had high expectations of the hotel considering the pricey room. The buffet dinner was excellent, especially the main courses. Buffet was of limited range but quality was good. The Gorge view family room, no doubt has a good view of the taroko... More

I had very high hopes before I checked into the Silks Taroko Hotel. However, when I got into my Gorge View Family Room, the rooms were in obvious need of updating. The walls had dirty marks on them, and our bathroom/shower tiles had pieces of paint that had fallen off. There were marks on the walls which were apparently from... More

a superb hotel nestled in the heart of Taroko Gorge. Lovely well maintained rooms that are clean, spacious and well stocked with (free) drinks / snacks etc. our booking included breakfast and dinner, both of which were very good and recommended as theirs not much in the way of alternatives in the area. Hotel facilities (indoor and outdoor pools, jacuzzi,... More

We stayed at the hotel for 3 days, 2 nights, which is the perfect amount of time to see close by attractions. If you are into hiking, this is the perfect place to stay to get access to all the mountain walks and the taroko gorge. Restaurants are limited to the hotel and small eateries near by.

This hotel is in the middle of Taroko national park. You get there through a two lane control access road. At times it narrow down to a single lane so the opposing traffic can go through while you stop or back up. It is as difficult to get to as any of the national park lodges we have stayed in.... More
