This article contains my favorite Nantou restaurants, including places near Sun Moon Lake, Xitou, and Cingjing. Every time I go to Nantou, I can’t do without these places.
There are several hotels here that I have lived in or have been well-reviewed in the tourism community. Therefore, Taiwanese families travel to Nantou; these hotels are worthy options.
Nantou Hotel | The Old England Garden Hotel
- Reference price: double room US$330 up per night on the workday.
The Old England Garden Hotel is one of the best Cingjing Farm B&Bs, in my opinion. The exterior of the British Tudor castle and the beautiful scenery of Cingjing’s mountains are like living abroad. Whether it is the exquisiteness of the facilities, the neatness and cleanliness are great, and the equipment is excellent and high-end. The restaurant environment is also beautiful, the meals are exquisite and delicious, and the portion can feel full! Except that the house price is higher, there are not too many shortcomings!
Nantou Hotel | Yu Shen Jing Resort
- Reference price: double room US$80 up per night on the workday.
The traffic location of Morilive Resort is perfect. The site is next to the gate of the Formosan Aboriginal Cultural Village. The air is fresh, and the garden landscape is excellent. The rooms are spacious and clean, with a cypress wood scent. The living facilities are relatively complete, including a kettle and a dehumidifier. The breakfast is delicious, and the service is also excellent. I used to stay relaxed during the cherry blossom season in the Formosan Aboriginal Cultural Village, and I recommended it.
Nantou Hotel | Fleur de Chine Hotel Sun Moon Lake
- Reference price: double room US$400 up per night on the workday.
In my mind, Fleur de Chine Hotel Sun Moon Lake is the No. 1 Sun Moon Lake hotel. However, the room rate is astonishing, whether it is the super beautiful Sun Moon Lake view. The superb hot spring spa facilities and the attentive service envisaged for the guest’s many details are Surprising again and again. The room is beautiful; just enjoying the Sun Moon Lake from the balcony is a kind of enjoyment. There are performances at night, even if you stay in the hotel, you don’t feel bored.
Nantou Hotel | Fuli Hot Spring Resort
- Reference price: double room US$110 up per night on the workday.
Fuli Hot Spring Resort is the only hotel with hot springs in Sun Moon Lake. It’s next to Shuishe Pier. The service is good, and the facilities are good. The rooms are spacious and beautiful, and you can soak in the hot springs in the room. There are also super-diverse facilities such as electric bicycles, PS4, parent-child DIY, and open-air swimming pools. In addition, the hotel’s rock bath and afternoon tea are also trendy.
Nantou Hotel | The Lalu Hotel
- Reference price: double room US$480 up per night on the workday.
The Lalu Hotel is one of the top hotels in Taiwan. With the beautiful scenery of the lake and mountains of Sun Moon Lake, coupled with the poetic design of Zen, it is the first choice for many friends who don’t care about their budget. I love the lake view suite; the view is unbeatable, the infinity pool in the hotel, the relaxing atmosphere is refreshing!
Nantou Hotel | Blue Sky Bay B&B
- Reference price: double room US$90 up per night on the workday.
The Sun Moon Lake Blue Sky and Water Bay Hotel is a new homestay, opposite the Shuishe Wharf parking lot. The overall facilities are novel and clean, some rooms have balconies, and the breakfast is delicious. You can feel that the proprietress is very attentive. If you are not looking for high-end hotels, Blue Sky Bay B&B is a great value-for-money accommodation option in Sun Moon Lake.
Nantou Hotel | Laurel Villa B&B
- Reference price: double room US$100 up per night on the workday.
This Laurel Villa B&B is only 30 meters away from the Shuishe Pier. The rooms are beautiful, and the overall decoration is relatively modern. And the owner is very enthusiastic. The biggest highlight is the owner’s morning riding private house chasing the sun. Listening to his commentary, you can feel He loves his hometown, Sun Moon Lake, and enjoys the tranquil beauty of the lake in the early morning. The breakfast provided by the homestay is also delicious, with porridge and western toast. The style is not much, but it feels like home cooking.
Nantou Hotel | Doris Home
- Reference price: double room US$110 up per night on the workday.
Doris Home is a very textured Sun Moon Lake B&B. You can find your seat, read lots of books, and enjoy the coffee in the lobby, all by yourself! The rooms are clean and bright with a sense of design. The breakfast is healthy and delicious, and there are several cats from the host’s family shuttle in the homestay. You can see the cat decorations everywhere. During the stay, I heal by the scenery of Sun Moon Lake and the cats.
Nantou Hotel | Sun Moon Inn
- Reference price: double room US$130 up per night on the workday.
Sun Moon Inn is also a pretty new homestay. It is located near Shuishe Pier and has convenient transportation. It adopts a simple and elegant clean water model design. The rooms are spacious with wooden floors and large floor-to-ceiling windows for lighting. You can feel at home when you enter the room. The breakfast is super rich with local ingredients and Puli rice noodles, Shaoxing sausages, and seasonal fruits and vegetables.
Nantou Hotel | Mingshan Hotel
Book your room via: Agoda.com |
- Reference price: double room US$85 up per night on the workday.
The Monster Village theme hotel is next to Xitou Forest Park. Although the facilities are a bit old, I think you can still stay if you want to play in Xitou Shanlin Creek. Next to the entrance is the lively Monster Village, and you can walk into the forest in the early morning. Taking a walk in the district to breathe fresh air is enjoyable. The cabins are independent and quiet, with a good sense of privacy. The hardware updates one after another.
