The Lalu Sun Moon Lake is a modern hotel with a glorious history. It is at the Sun Moon Lake and every room has a stunning view of the beautiful lake. The infinity pool is very impressive. Catering is another highlight. We have dined in the Western resturant and the food is no worse than a local French resturant. The... More

I stayed here after a friend recommended this hotel at Sun Moon Lake. From the moment we arrived we were blown away by the architecture and the surroundings of the hotel. The views of the lake are breathtaking. We were welcomed immediately by the lounge and were offered welcome drinks and cold towels. We booked a courtyard two bed room... More

The Lalu has wow factor. The unique view offered by the hotel's location is harnessed by the hotel's open design. It's a beautiful place to spend time, swim, enjoy the sunset, etc. We stayed in one of the rooms in building B. It was beautiful and a very special place for a couple to spend time. The f&b was, however,... More

I stayed here in 2008 on my friend's recommendation; it was relatively new & we were impressed with the architecture & attention to details. Apparently, the owner/architect designed it to resemble the airiness of Bali, Indonesia. Everything is custom-made with natural materials; tranquility & comfort is their motto. Set against a lush landscape overlooking the Lake, the rooms offer breathtaking... More

For our first trip to Taichung, we picked the Lalu over 日月行館 for our first two nights of the trip as the resort simply looked amazing in their website, even though some of the travelers' reviews claimed that the resort needed some upgrading and renovation. I don't disagree with that but am still glad I picked The Lalu as the... More

It is a pricey hotel that I always hesitate to pay for. However, it is always recommended to me by taiwanese as their best hotel and they always like to offer one night in Lalu as their incentive trip to reward their excellent staff. I finally made a decision to try this hotel after hearing about it so much. After... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with my friend in March 2015. Luckily, the lake view suite is available! I used to be here last August to have lunch at Chinese restaurant with my family. I was surprised since then by the scenery, the architecture and food there which were very very good. This time, I have the opportunity to... More

The best thing to say about this place is the interior design and how it combines with the beautiful landscape. The views it creates is simply masterful. Also the rooms, which are closer to being suites, are superbly designed and very generous in size and carry all the amenities. As for the building's exterior however, one can see the fatigue...

This hotel is a designer's dream. Serene and calming. The rooms are well designed, all with views over the lake, which even in the mist looks fabulous. The bed is comfortable and the daybed on the balcony would be inviting in warmer weather. The bathrooms are interesting, with sliding doors separating shower, toilet and washbasin. Even the amenities come in... More
