Reviewed 8 December 2010

We had a memorable 2 nights stay at Fu-Yam. It really is a wonderful home-away-from-home. The rooms are cosy and the minsu compound is beautifully landscaped. With nature all around, being surrounded by forest and a creek, it is tranquil and soothes the weary souls.

We were especially touched by Mr and Mrs Chung’s warmth and hospitality. Even their dog, Kilo, is just a friendly, gentle giant.

Guests can help themselves to the floral/herbal tea and coffee any time. They serve delicious meals with fresh vegetables from their own garden. It was simply relaxing just chatting with fellow guests and the owners over a hot pot of tea under the stars after dinner!

Mr Chung took us for a trek on Lalashan and also brought us to explore along the creek later that day. What was most forgettable was Mr Chung roasting sweet potatoes for our supper. He even let us light fire-crackers knowing that we hardly have such a chance to do so in Singapore!

Their service is first-class which is beyond the call of duty. When they found out that we had problems booking train tickets to one of our destinations, Mr Chung went all out to seek a friend’s help to secure the tickets for us.

We felt like we arrived as guests but left as friends. We would certainly return to Fu-yam if we have the chance.

A great place to stay if you need a retreat into the nature. Very clean and spacious room that are simple but very tastefully decorated. Both Mr and Mrs Chung are very kind and hospitable. Home cooked food are great too. We were treated to red wine by Mr Chung when he overheard that we wished we had bought some wine on our way up! A walk in the nearby La La mountain complements the stay. The guide Sky Wu was fantastic! He was very easy going and after a while we are so comfortable with him that we just treated him like one of us. He is not at all mercenary and will acede to all our request beyond the call of duty!

I would describe Fu-yam as 'Paradise for city people'. The almost 2 hours driving distance fromTaoyuan airport keep the air and sound pollution away. The environment is nice though the hardworking of the owner, Mr. & Mrs. Chung, who spent many years to build up the garden, small farms, fish pool... etc. Mrs. Chung (throught the help of the tourist guide, Sky) cook excellent Haka meals for us. Of coruse, their love dog & their Indonesian domestic helper (sorry, I forget their names) are wonderful companion during our stay.
However, it would be better if there can be a small table inside the room, so that we can pack our luggage more convenient

We would like to thank Mr & Mrs Chung and our driver and guide, Sky for their very warm hospitality and kindness. We indeed enjoyed our 2 nights stay very much, with the fantastic view from our room, the delicious food that Mrs Chung prepared and the kindness of everybody at Fu Yam. We would highly recommend anyone who wishes to get away from the city and have some peace and quiet to stay in Fu Yam. We hope to be able to return again in the near future. Once again thanks a lot for everything! The persimmons that Mrs Chung gave us for our trip back to Taipei was delicious!

My family of 5 ( with one elder,one young child )spent 2 nights in Fu-Yam. The whole package was good with the host arranging pick up from the airport and sending us to our next destination in taipei. Saving us a lot of inconveinence.

What we like most is the natural setting we stay in, hospitality of the host, food and the relax manner of the intinery planned.
Places of interest we visited are: Lala mountain thousand years old trees, fruit farms ( perssimons and kiwi fruit ),some old town along the way,fish and crab farms.

Can not agreed more with all the reviews on this resort in Tripadvisor .. anyway, my version ..

Great stay and home stay experience in FuYam. Very good service and hospitality provided by Chung senior and Ah Khui (Mr Wu). Resort located in the valley surrounded by a lot of green. Though it took about 2.5 hrs to the resort from TaoYuan airport, it worth the travel . Along the way , you can stop over to enjoy some titbits , and enjoy the scenery. Must have a stop over in Da-Si old town. Tried their bean curd (not the smelly one) , Yam rice and the peanut candy .

Go to their website and select the choice of your room. All are nicely done ( wish the bed be softer though ).

Dinner, lunches and breakfast were great .. cooked by Mrs Chung and Ah Khui. Simple Hakka cookings , yet delicious . We finished almost every meals .. clean plate club ! If you see or have carving for certain food , you can also suggest and they might be able to cook for you.

Activities wise .. for a more relaxing stay .. do plan for 3D/2N in Lala Shan. What we did on this trip ..
1) Visited LaLa Shan forest reserved ... close encounter with 2000+ yrs old tree
2) Visited Fish Farm
3) Fishing @ LaLa Stream
4) Visited Peach Farm. Fu Yam has a few fruits tree too.
5) Exploring nearby area by foot .. look for Bugs , Butterfly and frogs

My recommendation (for foreigner only) if you planning to try out this place ..
1) Maximize your experience .. stay during local off peak season.
2) Bring some of your local delicacy or cooked food stuff or beverage .. for sharing in dinner time. it would be good to bring along stuff like the ready make packet, Bak-Kut-Teh, Curry Fish Head , dry meat, etc .. or maybe you should cook a dish ..
3) Bring torch light and mosquito repellent .. for wondering @ night
4) Expect good socializing .. mingle with the rest of the guest .. most are friendly
5) If you staying in a few places in Taiwan, they can arrange the trip for you .. for instance, you might want to try Yilan, TaiChung, PengHu, etc .

Lastly, Senior Chung is a very warm and chatty person .. in his best mood, you can sample his liquor collection .. rice wine, red wine, etc .. Hope you have a good trip

The place is surrounded by beautiful nature and the quality of sleep is great. The owners are incredibly nice and warm people. We travelled with two little children, and we felt ourselves immediatly at home, truly and heartly welcomed. The food was wonderful. We were taken to Mount Lala Ancient Trees, and to some wonderful little fruit and fish farms around. We would certainly recommend this place, and we would like very much to revisit Fu-Yam.
