I was at the resort only for an hour on a day-long tour of the Rift Valley that left from the tourist booth in Hualien near the train station.This is an excellent resort with its combination of beautifully manicured grounds filled with blooming plants,butterflies both free and in enclosures, a spa with hot spring pool and probably plenty of spa activities, restaurants, etc. For those who want a more natural experience, there are a variety of nature trails passing through old camphor trees covered with vines, alongside a small creek with waterfalls and vistas. On the way you may encounter assorted monkeys before they vanish with warning barks into the undergrowth. The trails are easy to walk, and they provide a nice glimpse of Taiwan's natural beauties. For those who want to get away from it all, but still have a variety of things to do, this would be a good resort to visit for several days. There are other attractions in the area that are easy to reach from the resort.
