Stayed there for one night during Easter. I am not going to cover how nice the decoration and the scenery are, which were covered in other review and they are all true.
Yes it was expensive compared with other options in the region but the suite is really nice. We stayed at the Fantasia Suite at Block A. I can't find anything bad about the suite. Everything are exactly the same as described in website, or better. The bed and linen are among the best quality I have even experienced. The toiletry are from Hermes. Mini bar items, including a dessert wine, espresso, and snacks are free. There are some small gifts that are designed for you to take away too.
A real deal is their Hi-fi provided in the suite. In our suite we have Cyrus CD player, pre-amp and two mono channel power amps to push a pair of Focal micro utopia. I really enjoy listening to music in this lovely old English style suite.
They provide CDs for use free of charge. The collection is a bit dated. If you are serious about music, bring your favorite CDs.
They also organized a free music appreciation function after dinner, with free flow of whiskey and a small selection of other drinks. I don't know if they do this everyday but to us this was a surprise treat and we really enjoy it.
They use a pair of Focal Grande Utopia, powered by Halcro DM68, pre-amps and MOON supernova CD player. Those are top end equipments and the sound quality is amazing. They played a selection of CDs covering different genre of music. The choice of music were great but the recording quality varies. I think it would be better if they could use CD recording of higher quality.
Food quality is good but don't expect Michelin quality. After all, I believe the target customer is local Taiwanese rather than European. Overall services is attentive, staff are friendly. It was a really enjoyable stay.
