I booked a 3 nights' stay based on the positive reviews. I was not disappointed...
Once I stepped into Lauya, I was immediately relaxed, it is like a retreat for me, away from the maddening crowd. The garden is amazing, you can see the owner's personal touch...little ornaments dotted the whole place. Light music is played in the day time and in such nice setting, it so soothes the soul.
Ms Yu is very patient, explaining what is available in the vicinity, offering recommendations on places to visit, even paring me up with fellow travellers to share the cost in hiring a driver to bring us to various places of interests.
Alishan Park is about 30 min's drive away. For those who does not drive, you can take a shuttle bus that stops right in front of the guesthouse. A little inconvenient but the stay there more than make up for this little inconvenience.
The guesthouse is very clean and the bed is comfortable. The breakfast is taiwanese' styled porridge with various pickles. It has a platform at the back of the guesthouse and it overlooks some mountain ranges and you can star-gaze there.
This is a gem of a place and in my heart...a paradise. I will surely come back for another stay!More
