This is the best hostel I have ever stayed with. The owner of the hostel is very familiar with the sightseeing sites around the hostel and he helped us to rent a small car. If I have the chance to visit Kenting again, I will stay here one more time!

This is the most charming inn I've ever stayed in. Rooms are beautifully decorated, owners are extremely hospitable, and it is the only place I've ever stayed except the Mandarin Oriental that has a bathtub big enough for me to lie in.

Fantastic Seaview”
View, quiet location, large well kept room
We booked a quad room for the 2 of us due to the super peak period. The bath / toilet & basin area were separated into 3 different area right beside each other, which is I think is a good layout for quad sharing... As we were driving, the distance away from the night market did not bother us... pretty easy getting a parking along the roadside. Wifi's great. The balcony area ( 2mf floor ) is good for 6 pax's seating.. Woke up to a lovely quiet seaview. There's a small stony beach right in front of the resort. Started getting slightly crowded with a couple of tour bus and mini vans after 10am. Which was fine with us as check out time's 11am and we were having our simple 'In-Room' sandwich & milk tea breakfast @ the balcony overlooking the lovely sea... ( Appreciate the sweet gesture of staff ) Overall, had a great stay there!

Lovely hotel and service with a smile”
Lovely hotel with very unique and comfortable design
A lovely hotel, with very beautiful design, tasteful breakfast and friendly staff as well as owner. This hotel located about 15 minutes driving time from the most happening main street of the town. It would be more convenience during your stay there if you have your own transport, or else, have to take a taxi back or can call up the owner to arrange for a free lift if he were in town.

Extraordinary service from owner/Great Sea view
Location is kinda hard to get to actually . I would recommend traveller to call up the owner to ask for an arrangement of transport. But other than that , it is a great place . Boss is extraordinarily friendly. You can ask him anything and he will help you even maths questions ! Facilities are good and clean . Highly recommended for couples though

We have stayed here many times, and keep coming back. If you want to get away from the madness of Kenting street, this is a great area. It is much quieter, across the road from a nice beach. If you can, get the vip room, the outdoor tub is a blast!

Mind the Goldfish”
the bath, the staff and their style
A fine place on the south side of town where the crowds are not. Much appreciated that reception doubled as air traffic control, directing us in for a smooth landing well past any hour that might be considered respectable. With a smile they waited on us. Patiently. Sunny room with stony bath and plenty of switches to play with. bed is comfortable, room spacious and very well kept. Some nice touches. Beach across the road is sharkless and worth a snorkel. If, for some reason, you need to crawl through the window, mind the goldfish.

the sea, the room, the nice stuff
We had a great time. The hotel room was amazing but if you do not have a scooter or a car it might be a challenge to get around. They were very nice and took us to town but the taxis are quite expensive to get back (300 NTD flat fee which is a lot in Taiwan). But over all we had a great time. Also although the stuff were super nice and helpful they did not speak much English but we could communicate well enough. Also important, they arranged for us a taxi for 400 NTD a person from the hotel to our Kaohshing hotel, door to door which with kids was a godsend. make sure you ask the staff to do it for you both ways.

Comfy and pretty place to stay at”
The comfort of the room, the staff were helpful and the place was peaceful and pretty.
It was very comfortable and cosy place. The hostel is quite a distance (not walkable distance) from all the shops and night markets though hence when it is at night you would have to stay in the hostel or take away food to eat at the hostel. Overall the ambience is good :)

beautiful room, nice staff and good breakfast
I love the room, it was beautifully decorated. The room was big and with good view. The staff are nice and helpful. I like their homemade breakfast, it was nice and freshly cooked. We stayed for 3 nights and had different breakfast everyday. However the hotel wifi was poor may due to the location of the hotel coz our own sim card can't function as well.

Cute BnB just a few minutes' drive from Kenting”
Quiet atmosphere, beautiful natural surroundings, kind and attentive staff
This hotel/hostel is more of a bed and breakfast. It's very well-maintained, clean, and artistically decorated. It has a fantastic, unobstructed view of the ocean directly across the street. There isn't much surrounding the hotel, but if you rent a scooter or have a car, it's a very short drive from the strip in Kenting. My friend and I came for a long weekend. We loved our room and its private balcony (with a bathtub, deck chair and table!). The ladies who work there speak a little English, and with our (poor) Chinese skills, we managed to communicate fairly well :-) We loved the beautiful personal touches in the hostel, like the tiled floors, fun color schemes in the rooms, the vintage-y decor. I highly recommend this place for couples or solo travelers who enjoy a quiet, peaceful place to crash in the evenings. I think the price and the distance from the night market ensure that you won't be sharing the space with rowdy drunk backpackers. We will probably book here on our next trip to Kenting!

Decor, quiet, sweet staff
Enjoyable and relaxing. Sweet staff are very helpful with limited English. Decor is lovely if you like a funky Mexican vibe. Clean and reasonable. Good access to the coast although not for swimming as it is a reserve. A quiet alternative to the party vibe in Kending.

close to the east side of Kenting, friendly staff, great breakfast
the staff was very helpful in arranging transportation. remember to call them prior to arriving Kenting so they can drive you to the hotel, it takes a really long time to wait for public transport in Kenting and not a lot of buses would reach the hotel. they give very detailed advices as to where to go and arrange bike rental and else for us. the breakfast is superb!

Thank you to the owner Mr.Wu and his staff. Our stay in Kenting was very memorable. Mr. Wu was such a good host! Even though my Mandarin was quite lousy, he was always so patient and helpful with planning my transportation, with suggestions on where to eat. The breakfast which they made fresh to order each morning was great. You can tell they put alot of heart into everything. Highly recommend this hotel.

great design in room, big bathtub, seafront location
this hostel is really clean with decent size rooms, in fact it is bigger than some of the standard rooms you get in Taiwan. Love the big bathtub ^^ ! its located by the seafront but its not a place to sunbathe as its a rocky beach. it is quite far from Kenting main street and the buses are not so frequent so you'll have to book a taxi somehow as its impossible to walk to the main street or nearby beaches for watersports. Overall its a nice hostel/hotel

Close to ocean, quite area and surrounded by mountains
We had a great stay in the hotel. Note that it is not close to Kenting, so transportation is needed, which is not a big problem to get. The rooms are large and comfortable, nicely designed. We rented a car, so it was easy to get around and see the main natural attractions of the region, which is very beautiful and worthwhile visiting.

The best hotel i ever been”
nice sea view and hotel feature
It was the best hotel i ever stayed. I booked room 23 for 2 night, it provide a very good sea view balcony. I can see the a very nice sunset just set it there, so i don't have to go outside and see the same sunset in some famous spot where plenty of ppl. They provide difference breakfast menu everyday, so impress me, not an usual hotel breakfast, they perform with their heart. The hotel feature is feel like india or Morocco, very colourful and relaxing. When i first step in the room, i love in it. The location is far away from main street, if you don't rent a car or motor-bic, it would be not convenience, but the owner will drive you in and out if you ask for, the owners are so nice and help. I will definitely stay there again and highly recommend my fd to come here. It is amazing!!

Romantic style of interior design, sea view and huge size of balcony
The hotel is not nearby the main street Kending street, and is actually in the middle of nowhere. However, the landlord is kind enough to provide free pick up service between the main street and the hotel place, which makes life so much easier, if you don't drive yourself. The interior of the hostel room is superior with spacious room space and European style decoration. The balcony is huge and facing the sea. It's such a pleasure to sit down and open a beer, having a peace of mind watching the great kending sea view.
