Sun Moon Lake

Taiwan for the first time.
Me + my music-writing pal, Kate Hennessy
The very pretty, very majestic Sun Moon Lake.
Your own private suite.
And your own private hot tub.
Lunching (or what was left of it).
The President's favorite fish (just watch the bones)!
The view from one of the standard rooms.
Highs + Lows
The views. Nothing will beat these views.
The lap pool. 60m means you can actually have a decent swim (alongside the beauty of the lake, no less).
The design. Made from stone, wood, iron and glass, the design (by Australian architect Kerry Hill) blends in seamlessly with the surrounding nature.
The food. Try President Chiang Kai-Shek’s favourite fish (just watch the 5million tiny bones).

Yes - a modern “leisure center” with hot and cold whirlpools, herbal steam rooms, Swedish saunas, and the longest lap pool we have ever seen at a hotel (60m). The Lalu spa offers an extensive range of treatments as well, with views over the lake and mountains.
Yes - three choices (Chinese, Japanese, Western).
