Taroko National Park | Deluxe
Located in a spectacular mountain river valley, around an hour from Hualien City, Silks Place boasts a fascinating history, having originally been built in the 1950’s as a VIP hotel on the order of Taiwanese leader Chiang Kai-shek, to open up Taroko’s wonderful scenery to high-ranking officials. Seventy years on, the National Park is now open for everyone to visit, yet the former Tian Hsyang Lodge – now with a complete facelift and modernised facilities – retains a special air of sophistication and exclusivity.
The accommodation at Silks Place is split over two distinct floors: the Retreat floor and Resort floor. Resort rooms are unfussy, comfortable and slightly different in style: choose from a Japanese style room, a Garden View or (our favourite) the Gorge View room which boasts views of Taroko Gorge. The Suites on the Retreat floor are understated, contemporary and airy in style featuring vast picture windows offering panoramic views. As well as being larger than rooms on the Resort floor, they additionally benefit from access to the top floor, scenic Retreat Lounge, where complimentary snacks and drinks are served all day.
Given the range of facilities available at the hotel, including a stunning panoramic outdoor pool, tennis courts surrounded by jungle-clad mountains and two highly recommended restaurants, the luxury retreat concept begins to make perfect sense. You really will have to tear yourself away from the hotel to visit the spectacular National Park trails close at hand, the temples and grottos, hot springs and waterfalls.
We SayExtreme luxury in a truly awe-inspiring setting.
