Chuan Tang Spring Spa Hotel Review Yilan Taiwan| 礁溪川湯春天溫泉飯店
Yilan City is one of the few places I visited during my trip to Taiwan earlier this year. They city is Northeast of Taipei and this place is rich with history and culture. I didn’t really explore the city and the surrounding area as I was there for one night. What is interesting about this city is most hotels in this area offers natural hot spring. There are many hot spring hotels in Yilan and I stayed in Chuan Tang Spring Spa Hotel or 礁溪川湯春天溫泉飯店 (in Chinese).
This is the one and only hotel I stayed in Yilan Taiwan. I also reviewed the Eslite Hotel in Taipei and you can read it here. Chuan Tang Spring Spa Hotel offers hot spring facilities for hotel guests and public. For the public, you have to admission fees for the natural hot spring facilities. This concept is similar to Japan’s hot spring places.
For the room, it is huge and it is good for couple or family. The design of the room is typical ‘Taiwanese’ but the most important part is it is clean, spacious and comfortable. Check out the video we took for the room walkthrough.
The room comes with Flat Screen TV, working desk, wardrobe, mini bar, fridge, safe, sofa and ‘yukata’ (bathing robe).
The bathroom is the highlight as it comes with a huge individual bathtub (or more like a mini pool). There is also an individual standing shower in the bathroom.
You get natural hot spring water for the bathtub. Always rehydrate yourself when dipping into hot water. Don’t dip into hot spring for more than 25 minutes and always take a break to rehydrate yourself. We learned this during our trips to Japan.
On top of the wonderful huge bathtub with natural hot spring, the evening here is pretty quiet. The hotel is located off the main road so the noise level here is pretty low.
The breakfast here is good. They offer a wide range of local and International food. You will be spoilt with choices. There is something interesting that I must mention, the salted egg you get in Taiwan is made from chicken egg instead of duck egg. The taste of the local food is slightly different than our usual Malaysian Chinese cuisine but it is still good.
