Unfortunately Silk Place Taroko was fully booked when we visited Taroko Gorges. It is indeed better to book well in advance during national/school holidays as this hotel is very popular amongst Taiwanese people and foreigners. Nevertheless, we visited the hotel for lunch and weren't deceived as the chinese food was absolutely delicious. The way they served the ice cream in... More

This hotel far exceeded my expectations. Immaculate, spacious rooms, roof top pool and tennis court, heaven. Sitting in one of the rooftop jacuzzis a few feet away from a mountain is a memory that will stick with me for a long time. Highly recommended for a luxurious and magical stay in the heart of Taroko national park. Everything we could... More

My family of 4,with 2 children age 8, 10, spend 3 days 2 nights at the Silks Place in June 2014. The online booking and communication with the reservation was fairly easy. The hotel offers different packages that includes lodging,dinning, sightseeing and transportation which we took advantage of and was quite happy with it. We had a rental car and... More

Silks place is a resort style hotel situated in the beautiful Taroko Gorge. The hotel is well kept and staff are friendly. Although we were the only westerners in the hotel, all staff spoke good English. Meals are buffet style which went down well with the kids. The food was not spectacular but absolutely good enough. The real selling point... More

Silks Place is the perfect base for exploring the beautiful Taroko gorge. I am glad we staid for 2 nights so we can see the trails and make use of the various facilities in the hotel. After an initial mishap of booking which was rectified by the efficient concierge, Paula, we finally arrived at the hotel exhausted after dashing in... More

Two years ago, we booked a gorge-view room and enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the evening. This time, the hotel imposed a surcharge on the gorge-view room with the balcony. Last time, we preferred the Wellesley western restaurant. This time we definitely preferred the Chinese one. Meals are offered in two seatings - at 5:30 and at 7:30. We... More

This is a nice hotel in the middle of the Taroko national park and ideal to explore the sights. We stayed on the retreat floor and had a large and well-designed room. The hotel also offers tours and had a pool/gym/lounge area so that you could easily spend a day without having activities organized in the national park. The breakfast... More

Silks Place does not look well on the outside but once inside its a very modern zen hotel. The gorge view room we had was fabulous. Not only does it has a good view of the river but it also has the largest hotel bed we've since we started traveling. The breakfast and dinners were truly sumptuous. There's a choice... More

The location is simply superb. Great idea to put pools on the roof which is so open to the surrounding. Also fun to watch a movie in the open space during the late evening while listening to the sound of nature. For business gathering and seminar, however, the facility is not so well equipped. The meeting rooms are located in... More

Everything is great about this hotel. We can't seem to fault with it. Big property & lots of privacy & very serene. Breakfast was okay with quite good varieties & same goes for dinner. Staff are all really accommodating. Housekeeping even turned the air-condition on before we check-in to make sure the room is cold the minute we walk in,... More
