Whilst I did not stay here, I visited specifically for the outdoor hot springs experience. The variety of hot spring baths to select from was great, and the view of the mountains was impeccable. The only downfall would be the smell of the sulfur, as it is incredibly strong; so I guess it's a love-hate relationship. Overall, I would still...

Review is long over-due. But no urgency since resort was nothing to rave about, too old and desperately need upgrading. Room was ok (bathroom door gave it away!) but you can feel history from outdoor hot spring, the showering area, the miserable pool, one and only chinese restaurant (which decor & ambiance too sad looking for such lux hotel..). Very...

Great for families. ROOM was big and clean. HOT SPRINGS on site were clean and comfortable with lots of options. BREAKFAST was definitely a highlight; plenty of delicious western and eastern options. FACILITIES were great and wonderful for kids. STAFF was friendly and helpful. The hotel GROUNDS are beautiful with cherry blossom trees and views of the surrounding mountains in...

We stayed for two nights at Tien Lai. There is not a lot of choice for hotel in Yangmingshan. From our experience, Tien Lai is comfortable hotel with nice hot springs. Although the location is not very convenient, since we hire a car this is not a very big problem for us. The first night we stayed in room in...

The room style was not consistent with the website while booking. There are stool water on the toilet from the last guests. There are a lot of cookie crumbles on the baby bed from the last guests as well. There are many dead fishes in the outdoor hot spring pool which supposed to eat your dead skin. Many leaves in...

The hotel is a bit old but clean. I was expecting more. The operator misunderstood my question. There is no outdoor nude hot spring pool but only indoor. It is a long way drive from city. The indoor hot spring is only NTD400 per person. The hotel receptionists were really nice and polite.

This is a great resort to experience Taiwan as a family away from the busy life of Taipei. The hot springs are great to relax and very well maintain. The staff is nice. The men are much friendlier than the women for some reason that I cannot explain. The chef even came to take a picture with me the last...

To summarize it, at Tien Lai resort you pay Four Seasons room prices and you get an old and run-down hotel which (at max) has 3-Star standard. Rooms at the resort are big however need some urgent renovation. Interior is oldish (everywhere in the hotel) and bathrooms need an urgent, modern touch up. You have room service only from 7pm-10pm...

We have been to Tien Lai about 5 times. Around 75 minutes from Taipei by regular one hour bus service from near Taipei main station. The bus stops directly outside the resort. Whilst this is also a hotel, we have never stayed, but go there to use their hot springs which are fabulous. They have pools of varying temperatures and...

Very comfortable hotel located at Yang Ming Shan, with nice hot springs, swimming pools. Location not very convenient, food choices very limited. There are pool table, table tennis and basketball court.
