Relaxing & Rejuvenating Stay”

Nice big rooms with comfortable beds and pillows, lovely mountain trails and hot spring!

We were there in November. It was about 1 hour drive from Taipei. The Great Roots Forestry Spa Resort is what we were looking for in a short trip. Food was great and the surrounding forestry was really relaxing and stress-free. The hot spring pool is fantastic, steam room, masseuse (have to book and pay), water jet masssages and a variety of water massages. Unfortunately the lovely swimming pool was close as it's 'winter season'? There were 3 diff mountain trails ranging from 1/2 hour (easy) to 1-1/2 hrs (difficult) very fun! We did venture out of the Resort and took a walk all round town which brought us down to a lovely river and a bridge. Fantastic views. Overall a very relaxing family trip - all in 1 package.

Almost perfectly relaxing”

Surrounding scenery and food

We stayed on Thursday night. Avoided the crowds and still enjoyed the Friday night buffet. We really enjoyed the lunch and two dinners at the western restaurant, but we're quite disappointed with breakfast. The pork ribs, the rib eye, the salmon roll were all great. The surrounding mountains are beautiful. We were looking to get away from the noise of the city and just relax. This would have worked except for the group games in the evening. The girl directing the games was on very loud speakers that blared into our room, with the windows closed - exactly what we were trying to get away from. The barbecue area also blasted techno music at night. The next day was nice and quiet again and we had a great time lounging by the pool - less people than the hot springs. We also enjoyed that the gym looked out at the mountains. We would go again.

Relaxing spa resort in the midst of nature”

Lots of nature

This is a nice spa resort located within the Dabangan nature reserve. If you are a nature person, there's plenty of hiking trails within the compound with good tracks and adequate signposting. Walks takes an hour to three, depending on your choice of trails. Other than the spa, gym and nature, there isn't much else to do.

Gorgeous Hotel!”

Nice Hot Spring & Excellent services

Visit this hotel around Christmas time. Not much foreigner knows about this hotel and with my observation, mostly local people will visit here. Maybe the location is not that convenient and it's located inside a forest. It's a gorgeous hotel and they haven't got too many rooms. So, it's not too crowded. The environment is quiet and peaceful. The room is a bit old but still tidy and spacious. The best of all is the hot spring and the super friendly staff. It's a MUST TRY to this hotel.
