This review is only for the hot springs as I did not get to stay in the hotel. I stayed at a hotel up the street and really, really wish I had found this place first! This is an out door spring that requires you to wear a bathing suit and a bathing cap (available for purchase for $120 NTD)... More

Worth the hours drive to Yang Ming Shan Arrived and it started pouring, but you could feel the sense of peacefulness as everything is blended with nature. Had a quick buffet lunch and walked around the hotel as the rain stopped. Air was fresh and the rain was actually not bad, the weather was cool at 2pm. Rooms was large... More

We came here for a 2D1N stay and we absolutely love the place. It is located midway up the hills and is conveniently reached via a public bus from Taipei Bus Station. It is an oasis not far away from Taipei city. A place where time slows down and the body & soul can rest and rejuvenate. Tien Lai offers... More

Came here with my partner for one night. A shame the day we checked in it was raining, well more like a downpour. But the day we left it was beautiful! The scenery is breathtaking.

The resort's ambiance is so calming and peaceful. The resort is good for distressing. I fell in love with the rooms...barnyard kind-of-feel, 2 queen size beds, a balcony with a view. Although some rooms have full bath (higher floor), ours is a standing shower only. The walls between rooms don't have acoustic insulation, by just walking in the hallways you... More
