This is a world class hotel in the very centre of Taiwan. Set on a hill overlooking Sun Moon Lake, it cascades down the hillside, ensuring all lake side rooms have a great view of the lake. Rooms are all spacious and extremely well appointed with a Edie balcony, comfortable beds (soft mattresses which is unusual in Taiwan, wonderful bathroom,... More

We booked the room through American Express so we were upgraded from a suite to the garden villa which costs approx. USD1100/ night. Pros 1. The hotel is really well-designed, the building itself makes people feel calm and relaxing. 2. The view is definitely the best around the sun moon lake area, unbeatable. 3. Their Chinese restaurant, 湖光軒, is really... More

stayed for a few nights at this lovely hotel. rooms are very nice, but everything is a little old, and for this price you would expect something a little bit better maintained. other than that, this place is fabulous. amazing food, in particular the buffet breakfast, that will satisfy local and western highest standards. very quiet hotel overall with lots...

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
