    The Lalu must be the nicest hotel at Sun Moon Lake. Not only we are facing a good view from the room, the interior of the hotel is nicely decorated too. We had dinner at the Chinese restaurant, & the food & service is 5 star! Wished the price is lower.

    Great infinity pool looking across the lake. In December at least when we stayed there were beautiful views of sunrise and sunset. Excellent breakfast with wide selection and great quality. Expensive, but worth it for at least once. Probably the best hotel I've stayed at.

    Facilities is generally good but some minor detail need to be improved like the position of the socket, the timber flooring of the bath area don't really let you enjoy your bath liberally as you'll afraid to wet the timber flooring.

    Fabulous!”

    This is definitely worthy, everything was wonderful. Spectacular Sun Moon Lake view from the room. The food are really nice especially the Chinese restaurant - everything tasted really good! Highly recommended to have meal there if you visit Sun Moon Lake. The only downside, they restricted you to wear a swimming cap if you wanted to go into the swimming pool (even though you will not wet your hair but just wanted to snap some photos in the pool)... otherwise, we had great time there. The SPA is superb also...

    Wonderful experience”

    Lalu has the best location overlooking Sun Moon Lake. Facilities and staffs are both very nice. The Spa is a bit pricey but offers great services and wonderful massage and great view over the Lake. It's both relaxing and romantic. Few things that we were not so impressed by are: cooking at the Chinese restaurant at Building B is so amature and no where close to the overall standard of Lalu; we booked from Avoca and asked for higher level in the building. With the hotel less than a third full, we were placed in a room close to bottom of the building and had to suffer interruption to our view of the Lake.

    A uniquely beautiful hotel in a superb location. ”

    1. Architecture and interior design. 2. The location 3. The facilities, esp. the infinity pool and tea house garden.

    1. I would rate this hotel a 10 IF the morning service in the Brasserie were to be improved. A buffet requires an attentive staff since used dishes must be cleared constantly. They had to be prompted to clear our table both mornings we were there. They never circulated to see what guests might need. It's management's fault for inadequate training in how to serve guests. For example, as an international hotel, they (including the omelette chef) should understand what "fried eggs easy over" means. Also, a guest shouldn't have to wait for the bacon to be cooked! A supply should always be ready. The Japanese breakfast items could be greatly improved. Also, no European items, e.g. cheese. Dinner was fine; the menu offers a broad choice. The Chinese restaurant was fine but nothing special. 2. The Lounge has no pianist on weekdays. Does this mean weekday guests are less important? A pianist should be there nightly, even if there is no one in the lounge. Hearing/seeing the pianist may invite guests to enter and relax. Now the silence is deafening! 3. The suite was beautiful but not completely functional and comfortable. I have made suggestions to the manager.

    1. Unbeatable view of the lake. 2. Great service. 3. Great Facilities

    The Lalu hotel itself is a destination. I only stayed for one night and wish to stay longer. Service is excellent and that's not much I can complain. If really have to say something for improvement it will be there isn't too much choice for food for solo travellers.

    Location, great view, best room and balcony

    Best in sun moon lake area in terms of location and hotel comfort. Views are fabulous as it's just at the lake. Throw in a nice room with a fabulous balcony ! Only suggestion is to change the lounge chairs in the room for a more comfortable sofa. We dined at the Chinese restaurant which is nothing to shout about for the price. This hotel is highly recommended

    The ultimate Sun Moon Lake experience”

    Best view of the lake, modern zen architecture, service level

    Everything is perfect, no complaints at all, and the children would love to come back. It's a bit pricey (around US$600 including additional child with breakfast) but commensurate to the ultimate sun moon lake experience. It's a hotel most Taiwanese people would like to visit, I think the Lalu lived up to its name.

    Great thanks to all the staff at the Lalu which made our honeymoon stay so memorable. We were not able to book in advance but managed to secure a last minute booking and the staff were able to provide us with an amazing lake view suite with a fireplace and also cake to celebrate! Karen who was at the desk was also extremely resourceful and managed to help me purchase a battery charger + SD card which I left at home in my rush to pack while off duty. Truly the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome.

    warm and gracious hospitality, architecture

    it was such a treat for the senses to stay at the lalu... calming, soothing, and quiet with every detail, from the architecture to the service. in our opinion, the best way to enjoy sun moon lake is from the massive patio of one of lalu's lakeview suites. things that stand out... our very warm welcome to the hotel nearly put me in tears by the time we were guided to our room to see the unbeatable view of the lake, music created especially for the hotel, the old bonsai tree on our patio, viewing and listening to the rain, very comfortable bed, borrowed art books from their library, hot bath overlooking lake from suite, cool dip in the heated infinity pool, delicious dinner at their western restaurant (we were told, headed by a canadian chef), a kind send off before we were shuttled back to the bus station.
