The mud was watery but it did a smooth skin effect after that hotspring. Everything inside the room was the only convenience part. Spa was not working at the pool, no turbo jet at all, check in late and did not want to bother asking to change room. Steam bath located in the shower room so you cant steambath while another one need to bath, free breakfast was.... erm minus point! Not much spread. Opposite the hotel was a resturant manage by the hotel too, u could order food to be send to your room too. A convenience store opposite manage by local. Overall, I felt I paid a lot more than what I recieve.
Specially for mud hotspring”
The famous muddy hotspring seems to be diluted, not as thick as I thought it will be. Saw other people muddy hotspring seems to be able to form a layer of clay after drying but our muddy hotspring is really like normal hotspring with some mud mix in. Not sure is it authentic a not. But overall the room and bathroom is big, with private hotspring facilities. Just a note it seems like this hotel are mean for couple rather than friends or family.

Friendly staff, awesome bathroom”
Private hot spring as a bathroom
stayed two nights in the hotel. intention of the stay was to relax as there isn't too much to do in guanziling.
the room is a good size but the stand out feature is the private hot spring bathroom (with tv). the bathroom also contains a cold tub, steam room and a toilet with a view!
location of hotel is directly opposite the bus stop that brings you up from chiayi.
Good hotspring hotel for relaxing”
Lagre and comfortable room
Location is far away from city center, butthis is not difficult to find.
In-room pool for spa.
Overall is very good !
hotel staff treat my so good. only 22 special design room. so they have to make money. i do not mind to pay more. worth it.
Good services and nice and peace lacation ”
Good and nice location, suitable for the couple and small family.
The location is nice and quiet. However, not too far from the town. By the way, the privates car is needed if you would like to spend some time on nice life. The pool is quite smaller than expected so should be be aware in case of staying during long weekend.
big room, hot spring and cold water spa
the area does not have much in terms of sight seeing (unless u are driving) as the attractions are quite far away); do visit the area only if you want to soak in the hotspring water, but then again, how long can you soak?
check in was at 2.30, and not 4.00pm as some have claimed.
room was big with 2 areas, 1 each for hotspring water and cold water.
room service with no additional charges
The hotel itself has the mud spa therefore u wont need to share with outsiders. There are 2 spas indoor therefore 1 person can soak the mud spa while the other can soak the clear spa. You can order the pot chicken and they will deliver to your room. But the wifi is only at the lobby.
Relaxing spa hotel in mountain village”
Location, Comfort, Style
This is a wonderful spa hotel in the middle of Guan-zih-ling village.
The location is great! It is right next to the mud river and the muddy water (actually, it is minerals) is piped into the hotel for a relaxing spa. They also have clear spas if you don't like mud. You can get to Guanzihling village easily by bus or by car.
However, the other wonder of Guanzihling ('Fire and Water, common origin') is far from the village and you will need your own transport.
Guanzihling is a great romantic destination and this hotel ticks all the boxes:
-It is beautiful and comfortable inside, so you will enjoy being there.
-There are two different spas (mud spa and clear spa), they are both big enough to fit two people comfortably.
-There is an on-sight restaurant, so you don't need to go far (though the included breakfast was only available between 7am and 9am - who would get up early at a spa hotel?)
-It is expensive and looks as though it should be, so your Taiwanese girlfriend will be impressed!
It is hard to fault this hotel . . . .but there are small things I noticed:
-There are only two towels and one bar of soap for two people for two days. Given the fact it is a spa hotel, I would have thought more would be available (a savvy operator would have them for sale)
-The price is a bit much (it cost more than my flight).
-The entire spa area is a health and safety nightmare (loose stones underfoot, slippery floor towels, recessed bath tubs), yet the supplied bath clogs (aka jandals) are only big enough for small Asians (they were even tight on my girlfriend).
* So it may be a good idea to bring your own supplies.
Would be nice to have free wi-fi considering the number of Benjamins needed to get through the door.
small family style hotel”
has sauna in the room
we stayed there for one night. the only thing i like was the sauna room in the bathroom. cleanness of the room is average. it looks like sort of a motel style. breakfast was very traditional taiwanese style. i was shocked by the hotel owner asking me to pay more for the hotel room since i had paid in advance through agoda. will i go back again, i do not think so.
Unbeatable location for people travelling by public transportation with very nice bathing area en-suite. The rest of the hotel facilities and breakfast were just so so
Spa is good, which is inside your room. ”
Spa pool is very clean
