Reviewed 24 August 2013

Months building up to our Yilan trip, I had been bombarding Chris and Vivi (daughter and son-in-law of The Dew’s owners, who also happen to have their own B&B 300 metres away from The Dew) with emails almost everyday - travel arrangements from Taipei airport, what to do in Yilan, restaurant recommendations... Frankly, their patience shocked me. I honestly believe such kind of dedication and sincerity could not be found in franchise-hotel concierges.

Truth is, what made our Yilan trip memorable was not the food we ate, the museum we visited, the hot spring we tried, the beer we tasted - it was the people. Dad and mum of the B&B, Chris and Vivi (and their cute adorable baby), Ah Jia (Vivi’s brother) - everybody was so welcoming, so warm, so helpful. A B&B is supposed to make you feel like a home away from home, and The Dew certainly lived up to that.

Now back to the B&B itself -
At The Dew, you could either stay at the “main building” - which has 4 rooms available, or you can choose to stay at their 2 backyard villas. We stayed in one of the villas 南極星, which they translate to as "Deluxe Indian Style Villa" on their website.

I’ve thought of all the descriptions I could use to describe the room: the exotic and funky interior design, the in-room collection of DVDs and CDs for you to enjoy, the thoughtful inclusion of a bottle opener and wine glasses (which is a big big plus for us - many 5-class hotels fail to provide guests with an opener)...
But truth is, you have to stay here before you can truly understand the awesomeness of the place.
For ~$1600HKD a night, I do believe it is a real bargain.

And there is also one thing I must mention about The Dew -
Their breakfast.
Breakfast is served at the main building from 8:30am till... whatever time you wake up - extremely thoughtful as it really is very hard to leave the bed and villa.
And for breakfast, you get 10 dishes. 10. 10 dishes of traditional Chineses/Taiwanese local delicacies. Majority of them homemade by Mum and Grandma.
Plus another 2 plates of a more Continental style breakfast including pastries, cakes and fruit.
Plus unlimited supply of congee, coffee, tea...
Ah. What a way to start the day.

Room Tip: Go for the villas.
