Have stayed in several hotels at sun moon lake. Lalu is certainly not the cheapest, but among the best in that area. I took a suit with a balcony and lake view. Initially I was upgraded to the suit with own garden and swimming pool. But there were just too many mosquitos and the water in the pool was not... More

The Lalu is the premier hotel at Sun Moon Lake, and delivers on its promise. While the architecture and entrance is intentionally understated, the interior design and generous use of wood and water is soothing- you truly feel like you're surrounded by nature. Rooms feature spacious balconies and a stunning view of the lake, which takes on a different character... More

This is one ugly slab of a hotel on the edge of Sun moon lake. Interesting sort of industrial design of open spaces; practical but not pretty. Hotel is looking and feeling its age. I would guess the owners haven't invested anything in it apart from essential maintenance since they bought/built it following the (physical) earthquake induced collapse of its... More

A wedding and corporate party notably stressed all staff and systems, which were unable to alleviate problems impeding our hope for rest and relaxation from 330pm to 8pm: at curbside arrival, the entrance was blocked by tour buses and backed up, lobby bathrooms were unkept and inundated with lines, and room delivery delayed. Upon entering the room, we had to... More

Behind the utmost ugly frontage of this hotel paradise is hidden. The contrast between the (in my opinion) tasteless front (as seen from a boat on Sun Moon Lake) and the fabulous interior couldn't be bigger. The hotel is situated about 20 m above the Sun Moon Lake level, and the rooms have a really splendid view over the lake... More

This hotel has an excellent location at one of the best spots at the Sun Moon Lake. The large suite designed room faces the lake directly with a great view to Lalu island. The room was huge with a large living room, spacious bed- and bathroom with a huge balcony with a lounge chair too facing the lake. Try to... More

Amazing unobstructed view of the sun moon lake from the hotel. The hotel furnishings are very luxurious and comfortable. All rooms are really big with lots of complimentary water and the soft drinks in the minibar are all reasonable prices of 20NT. There is however is no alcoholic beverages available through the minibar. The hotel itself is beautiful and all... More

Excellent personalised service that was never too intrusive. Loved the effort taken to create subtle differences between the night vs day landscape. ( hotel actually lit the fireplace in the evening and kept the caged birds replacing them with oriental lanterns when it got dark!) Attentive poolside service as well with cups of ginger tea and the towel service once... More
