About
Description
Nestled away amidst peaceful nature surroundings, The Great Roots Forestry Spa Resort is your Taiwanese hideaway. Located in Sanxia Dist, New Taipei City, only 50 minutes from Taoyuan International Airport and More also Taipei City. Our resort covers a 17-hectare site that was formerly the biggest tea-processing plant in Taiwan during the Japanese colonial period. The resort is tucked among the only low-elevation primitive tropical rainforest in Taiwan. These entire rare natural wonders wait along with the healthy and relaxing essences of the forest at the resort. In addition to enjoying the natural scenery, visitors can take a soothing and skin-pampering soak in the carbonic hot springs. Relax at the hotspring spa area, which overlooks the beautiful forests of Sanxia. The stunning natural setting contributes to an unrivaled relaxation experience. It is a place where you see the the world a little bit differently. Less
