After a midnight flight and with no hotel room ready yet, we were recommended by the staff at our hotel to have a hot spring bath at Villa 32 first and the room would be ready for checking by the time we returned from Beitou district where all the springs are located.
The place was difficult to find even for the cab driver as it was understated and minimalistic for a front gate. You will only see a simple wooden gate and gray stone walls with the sign and a Relais Chateux emblem, once you enter, it becomes a whole different place!
The zen-like design with the grenery and driftwood artpieces greet you with the sounds and smell of the sulphur from the hot spring all around you. The private room we were given was beautiful and well equipped with all the toiletries you would need for a 4-hour dip!
If only they had private hot spring pools in the open like they do in Japan, this place would definitely be even more of a gem of a place to visit!
