I have stayed in 5 or 6 hotels in Hualien and this is truly the best getaway in Hualien. The resort is quite far from the downtown area and other scenery spots, but the resort itself is a wonderful sight-seeing place. It's worthy the ride to stop by at least 1 or 2 nights and enjoy the canal tour, swimming pool, hot spring spa, magic show and eco zoo next to the resort.
Every room has canal view balcony, very pretty. The theme of the architecture seems to be a well mixture of Catalonian art and Taiwanese pattern. The room and bathroom is spacious and exotic.
We got welcome snack in the room, I liked the mini-sized honey cake a lot and bought more as souvenir before I left. They had complimentary bottled water, bath products, bath salt, hairdryer, slippers and safety.
My family enjoyed the hot spring with two different temperature in different pools. We also had a free eco ride of canal tour for booking the room, and it was very pleasant. Along the canal was botanical garden, we felt get lost in Garden of Eden.
The buffet has a plenty of cuisine to choose from and they taste not bad, I really miss some taiwanese cuisine such as fried radish cake with soy sauce and pork rib soup.
As I mentioned earlier, the resort was kinda far away from everything, therefore they offer free shuttle service from the Hualien train station. Just make reservation ahead of time and they also have timetable for the shuttle van online.
Overall, it's a hidden gem in east coast of Taiwan!!
