My wife and I spend a Tuesday night at this establishment.
We paid $3,900 NT (~$130 CDN) and got room #306, which appeared to be the 2nd last room of the third floor.
The room had 2 sofa chairs, tv, WiFi, 2 slipper sets, shoe horn, hot water boiler, 2 tea, 2 coffee packs, 2 cups, makeup mirror/vanity (which turns into a closet, cool!), 4 hangers and most importantly a * hair dryer *!
The mini fridge is cool, not cold, and had 2 bottles of water.
The hot tub has spa jets (on/off buttons for them) and sitting bench inside. The temperature gauge is in Celsius. To soak, you have to call the front desk to turn on the water, which I guess is to prevent needless waste.
The tub and washroom are combined into one. There were 2 toothbrushes, shampoo, bath foam packs and one small soap bar. A razor, brush and q-tips are provided as well.
The view was not the greatest and the circulation of air was almost non-existent. It would have been great to have a fan, that would have made the stay near perfect.
The television has blurry channels and the air conditioning is somewhat noisy. Things are a little old here but still adequate for a pleasant stay.
The bed and toilet are set low, so not the greatest for those that problems getting up from a low position.
Dinner was included in our stay, there is indoor and outdoor seating available.
I had the mackerel fish meal ($280 NT if bought on its own), there are also beef, pork or chicken meals available ($290 NT). My wife had the vegetarian meal and scored it an 8.5 / 10.
We were given tickets to the soaking tubs. For those that are new to the hot spring thing in Taiwan, people go fully nude. I'm not sure if they allow people to wear swimsuits in, but be sure to ask if you plan on going.
On the men's side, there are 2 hot pools at 37 and 41 Celsius, a steam and infrared room. There are numerous lounge chairs, shower nozzles lined up bull pen style and a water machine with paper cups available.
Upon entry, a staff member gives you a key to a locker to store your clothes, a hair towel and a body towel. Don't get them wet because those are the only ones you get. I found the hotter pool and infrared room most enjoyable. There's also a small cold pool to re-invigorate your body.
At its busiest that night, there were a total of 7 men (including myself) using the area which made for a pretty crowdless fell.
After enjoying the "public" pools, my wife and I talked about our experiences. She says she found the plumbing noises on the women's side too noisy to make for a truly relaxing experience.
Both areas have shrubbery and bamboo fencing that are half height which, if you only half sit into the pool, allow you to view the building across the river and vice versa. Although, someone would need binoculars to really pry.
I asked my wife to compare this spa to the other, Landis, that she'd been to and she said she likes the other much more, it's quieter, less people, more private, more airy circulation, unlimited drinks, lounge chairs and unlimited towels available. I haven't been but for sure next year.
Breakfast was also included in our stay and you'll have the option of western or eastern styles. Re-fills on coffee and tea. Staff also asked if we wanted re-fills on food which I did partake on to a slight degree.
Pretty much 99% of everything is in Chinese, the only thing in English is the massage services price list. So brush up on your Mandarin.
All in all, this place offers a pretty decent package in my opinion. A private room, public pools, steam/infrared rooms, dinner and breakfast for two.
