Booked the hotel via travel agent and stayed for one night. Check in time turned out to be 7 pm and despite of my father was unwell ( booked for two rooms) and told them we will check out at 9 am still need to argue to get one room by 5.30 pm. Be aware that there are two buildings, I think the good review showed in tripadvisor before were all in hotel wing. Spa wing room where we stayed was dirty and strange layout. Not meeting standard of hotel, not even bath mat provided, floor are very slippery and towels were not brilliantly whites. I think hotel wing is much betters as overall lobby much impressive. Tried Chinese restaurant for dinner and it was good and reasonably priced

Room Tip: Choose hotel wing don't go to spa wing, noise in the night as people can rent it on few hours basis

Good environment but a bit pricy, overall 3.5 actually. The public hot spot is good, and there is a pool where you can have little fish to "kiss" your foot, funny!

The room is in good and clean condition. There is also a small bath with hot spot. The hot spot is clean type.

Stayed for one night at this beautiful onsen hotel in Taichung. It's spanking new with huge rooms.

Really loved the huge in-room onsen tub.

The public hot springs were also good with lots of hydrojets. But the outdoor ones require you to wear a swimming cap. Indoor ones are nude ones.

Breakfast was good but food ran out quickly. Restaurant was also small.

Service from staff was also good.

Would recommend this hotel to anyone coming here.

This is an excellent hotel! We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. It is not in the town area but as we had transport, this was not a problem. This is a nice modern hotel with decorative art pieces about the hotel lobby and premises and beautiful flower arrangements which are changed daily. Service is good and attentive and the facilities are modern and excellent.
The rooms are HUGE. We had a five person family room. There were 2 king beds, a sofa, a corner of the room which had an art installation and a huge 42 inch LCD tv on the wall separating the bedroom from the equally huge toilet. Toiletries and slippers are provided, as are tea, coffee and cookies. There is mineral water in the room, as well as RO (reverse osmosis) water on tap in the room. There was a humidifier provided in the room as well.

The bathroom was definitely the highlight of this room. A large hot pool (black slate pool which you fill yourself and control the temperature of) big enough for 8(!!) people awaits after a shower. Your own private onsen! Furthermore there were waterjets for a jacuzzi function as well. There was a cold pool (smaller, with only a cold water inlet) for the more adventurous which I did not dare to try.

The lighting in the toilet and rooms was indirect, subdued and I daresay romantic, but unlikely to be of use to this family room with kids and all. Lots of couples check in to the other smaller rooms which also have their own 'hot springs'. The other building housed a public spa (swimsuit and cap required) as well as a fish spa, where the fish nibble off the dead skin from your feet. I don't recall anyone swimming in this fish spa though....

There is also a separate male and female spa (nude allowed) just before you enter the public area from the respective changing rooms. There is an activity room, table tennis and billiards and basic gym equipment as well as a kids playroom. There is no self service laundry though.

Breakfast was in a small cafe with a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains. Selection of food was adequate and a mixture of Asian and western fare was available.
If you are on a no rush holiday, taking it slow in this hotel to enjoy the spa is the way to go. Most tour groups I saw arrived late at night and left early in the morning. What a waste!

This hotel is a real gem!

We booked the 3 hr private hotspring room package. Very nice and modern room design as compared to those in Beitou or around Taipei County. Price is also slight cheaper. When we were there in May, the common areas in the hotel looked quite deserted and quiet. Location is located amids the greenery and away from the hustle and bustle. Fresher air too. Probably a nice place to stay if you like nature and do not mind the distance from town. If you are those who need to stay next to a night market or shopping circle, then just visit this place for hotspring.

There was 1 issue though. The hotel does not respond to enquiry via facebook or email after several reminders. My hotel reception helped us to call to book as well as how to get there. Surprisingly, they said they do not take reservation (first come first serve) and has no idea how we can reach there via public transport from Taichung Train Station. Nevertheless, take bus 15 (if I remember correctly) to 'Fengjia Bridge' in Dakeng and then change a bus which stopped right in front of the foot of the little uphill access to the hotel. Check with the bus driver as most of them know this place. Otherwise, call the hotel to ask again. They might have improve their service.
