I chose this hotel partly because it is only a 3-minute walk to the Kenting main street and partly because the photos of the hotel on its website looked very creative. Although the English translation of the Chinese name of this accommodation reads 'resort', it is more like a small hotel or lodge.
The hotel turned out to be as the photos on the website depict, but a tad older due to the passage of time. The lady owner was very friendly and responsive on email, she was able to communicate in English as well as Chinese. The lady owner also helped to arrange for transport from Kaohsiung on a shared 7-seater vehicle at a reasonable rate although the journey took a little longer than expected due to the number of stops the driver made for different passengers.
However, we did not see the lady owner on the first two days of our stay and the reception manned by very young staff was rather cold and unwelcoming.
The design of the room and bathtub were great, but the mattress and towels were rather thin. The owner obviously took great care in designing the details from the shell-covered bed post to the colourful tiles in the bathroom and chairs in the balcony. The view of the sea from the balcony and short walk to the beach was lovely too.
One minor downside is that the hotel does not serve breakfast, however, there are small eateries nearby at Kenting main street so you won't go hungry.
The upsides are the location of the hotel and ability of the owner to email in English. Apart from these, there may not be much differences with other small hotels in Kenting.
