The area is a nice place for family, especially for some young kinds. The place will send you to the room by a small boat after you check in. It is very special hotel in my impression. But the room rate is a little bit expensive.

You can spend one-day in the hotel if you like swimming activities. You also can ride bicycle to university near the hotel. It is also a beautiful place which you can enjoy and have good fun.

MY TRAVEL STYLE: If possible, I try to stay away from business and strongly prefer resorts that resemble the Four Seasons, Aman, and Oberoi but try to find similar properties at lower cost. I seek out the “wow” experiences and I encourage you to view hotels I have stayed at and their respective reviews (by clicking on my name).

LOCATION: Ok, not too close to many things but is a destination in itself. At least an hour from Taroko Gorge. Having a car here would be a good idea. 25 minutes to Hualien city by car.

BEST WAY TO GET THERE: We drove from the Anton Resort Springs area (stayed at New Life Resort). Took a very leisurely couple of hours by car.

TYPE OF ROOM: Isabella honeymoon suite

BED/SHEETS/PILLOW: Bed is very comfortable, soft and has ultra luxurious linens. The down pillows are excellent. One of the best beds in our last 120 hotels in the last 11 months.

LIGHTING: Tons of lighting in both bedroom and bathroom.

BATHROOM/SHOWER: Shower has medium water pressure and temperature can be made consistently hot if desired. Separate bathtub.

TOILETRIES: Good quality

CLEANLINESS: Entire room and bathroom are exceptionally clean with the exception of a little mold in the shower grout.

A/C: Quickly and quietly got our room cool.

CLOSET SPACE: Better than average closet space.

STYLE OF ROOM: Huge room with couch and balcony with chairs and table. Very comfortable Spanish style design.

QUIET/MORNING LIGHT: Room is very quiet and all morning sunlight can be blocked with the curtains.

FOOD: Breakfast is included and had a good selection of both Asian and western cuisine. Waffles, eggs, 3 choices of cereals, salads, toast, yogurt, and fruits. Food was ok but nothing special. There is a Chinese and Western restaurant on the property. The Chinese restaurant doesn’t have English menus and the staff doesn’t speak English so good luck there. The Western restaurant’s menu choices are not so good and are identical to the room service menu. Our spaghetti Bolognese ended up being a seafood pasta with mediocre taste and some of the shellfish was close to inedible. At least it was only about US$7.00 for the entrée. Luckily we have a car so all of our non-included meals since this meal have been outside the resort. There are also options for food at the pool but the highlight there is hotdogs and packaged cup-o-noodle style soup. My suggestion is to bring food with you to this resort.

TV/INTERNET: Internet is no charge but very slow and wireless only. About 8 channels in English including Discovery, HBO, Animal Planet, and Cinemax.

SERVICE: Staff are very pleasant and helpful but few employees speak even basic English. Many signs and pamphlets explaining hotel activities are in Chinese only so may be best to get a translation on day one.

COMMON AREA: Beautiful setting. Palms trees and manicured gardens set among waterfalls and ponds with koi fish. Pool is excellent and very inviting. Every so often there is the odd roman sculpture set within the grounds. The Pool requires a that guests wear a swimming cap which may be purchased for 100 TWD at the hotel. There are only 2 sets of lounge chairs by the pool (4 total) as most Taiwanese prefer a poolside table and chairs. The umbrellas for the lounge chairs block very little sunlight and the better umbrellas for the tables and chairs block much more but I could still notice sun coming through. I would be nervous about getting sunburned when out by the pool. The 4 loungers have no cushions therefore you are going to be sitting on hard wood.

ROOM & CITY TIPS:
The rooms closest to the lobby are in the best location since it’s closest to the main pool and hotel activities. There is a 3rd restaurant outside the main hotel area that specializes in seafood and especially clams (we didn’t know this until our 3rd day). Having a car is a good idea if staying at this hotel since nothing is in walking distance. There are some good biking roads around the hotel (hotel rents bikes). This is a perfect hotel for kids as there are many kids activities here and many other kids were present. Some of the buildings with rooms have a 3rd floor which probably have the best views. If you are ok with the limited English, mediocre food, and some of the pool issues, then I highly recommend this hotel as it very likely the best hotel in all of Hualien.

Was here with my boyfriend and his company (it was a company trip, all expenses paid for) and stayed 2D1N.

The hotel mini bus picked us up from the airport (at a small cost) and on the way to the hotel, the bus driver gave us a little guide on Hualin as we drove through major view points.

This resort is far away from everything else and there's nothing within walking distance, so if you are consider staying here, you might want to consider renting a car.
The hotel does offer buses to the city centre and does tour packages but all activities ends pretty early (including the last bus to/ from city centre), so you might get really bored in the night.

The room I stayed in was huge (I think it might have been the honeymoon room... my boyfriend's company booked it for us, so I'm not sure what kind of room type they've selected) and was really comfy.

I think if you pay extra money, you can use the resort's theme park facility. I didn't bother with it cuz they didn't really interest me...

It is a nice resort with very large land area. During our stay there, we notice the guests are mostly locals. The rooms are big and clean with king size bed, a sofa and the toilet is also big with bathtub and separate shower. The room for triple sharing has 2 big queen size bed which actually can sleeps 4 pax. As the resort are like chalet style with every blocks only 2 storeys high so do expect many mosquitoes around the area and if you're lucky in the rooms too!
Great Breakfast with many western and chinese selections.There's a free boat ride round the resort for all staying guests. During the day, guests can rent a bicycle, swims or have a hot spring spa in the resort and night time they have 'live' performance by their local singers or simply just relax in their small mountain bar. Overall we find the resort a good place for both families or couples who just wanna relax!
