An enchanting resort hideaway in a quaint valley of Taiwan, centered around a lagoon surrounded by picturesque greenery
Tucked into a mountainous valley in Shoufeng, Promisedland Resort and Lagoon is a charming retreat that brings you a step closer to nature. The resort sports fairytale charm – towers with pointed roofs and stone buildings curving round an emerald lagoon. In the evenings, you can take a boat ride down the lagoon as the resort lights up for the night.
There’s plenty to do in and around the resort. Swim in one of the three lagoon-like swimming pools are scattered amidst the buildings, fringed by carved structures with hidden grottos and slides into the pool. Walk down red brick paths winding through picturesque gardens, or join in the evening celebrations in the restaurants where musical performances take place. Unwind in the hotel’s Yuro Spa or head to the nearby attractions such as Lichuan’s Clam Farm or the Water Baths at the calm beach of Hualien.
The resort’s charm and relaxing atmosphere has not gone unnoticed, in 2016 it clinched a TripAdvisor’s Travellers’ Choice Award.
How to Get There
During our trip to Taiwan we stayed for two nights at PromisedLand. The property has a great resort infrastructure.. unfortunately the dining options need to be developed. Plenty of activities for families or couples. The landscapes of the resort are well designed and very clean. The rooms are a bit aged.
Its a great resort to get away from busy city life. For foreign traveler to Hualien, might want to have an easy 1 night to stay after exhausting travelling. I stayed 2 nights, n recommened maybe juz 1 night to rest, will get bored pretty quick bcoz cant go anywhere n have to eat there no other choices n pretty expensive $70 for 2 ppl. compare to taipei's hotel, is not that clean but still okay. noticed staffs there no smiling face especially the bell boy, dont forget tips them. Hard job less money. Good things :free shuttle to the stations, got bus to night market but hv to extra pay about NT $200. Has 1/2 hour night entertainment like dancing. other than that pretty boring for me. Advice :juz stay 1 night.
It's very nice that this hotel offers the pick up & drop off from/to the train station. My family went to Hualian and Taitung. We picked this hotel because it is famous for its view. After we got there, we took the cart to go to our room. The room is nice. The swimming pools are very nice too. Our kids enjoyed the swimming pools a lot. It's nice to have the the boat ride to see the view of the hotel surroundings.
The food in the restaurant is also excellent. We enjoyed our stay there. The only draw back is that we took kids to swimming pool next morning, and expect to give them hot shower around 10AM and then check out. The water was not hot, so we did inform the front desk, and they did apologies for the inconvenience in person and with a follow up call. After all, the hotel is excellent, and the staff are friendly and effective. We enjoyed it.
Long story short! It was about 1-2 am in the morning my husband saw a mouse running in the bathroom in our room...we immediately called the service center and it took 15 mins for them to come..they saw the mouse as well and asked us to change to the other room (they hurried us to pack and leave for the other room but our two little girls were sleeping!!). They showed no regrets, did not apologize nor care for asking about how we were afterwards. Besides, the new room we paid extra money for bigger beds but the new room we got was only with two standard twins and of course they did not refund us the extra! Very bad experience and I will not recommend this hotel to anyone.
Spent two days here on our tour of Taiwan.
We were picked up from the train station on arrival and dropped off there.
It is 30 mins from the train station.
We are met at the hotel by the staff giving a Spanish welcoming dance.
Staff spoke good English and Jimmy brought our luggage to our massive room.
All rooms have a balcony that looks on to the lagoon.
You are allowed one 12 mins lagoon ride every day through the seven bridges.
We found it very beautiful & romantic...they really do look after it...visually great.
At 10pm every night the staff wave everyone good night from the lagoon on a boat
as guests wave back from their balconies.
A very nice buffet breakfast with Asian and Western dishes.
No shops near the hotel.
Two computers to use in the foyer.
A free evening cabaret and dance show in the marquee was good.
They gave a goodie bag of local cakes when we left which was a nice touch.
It's quite pricey but you can get good offers on hotel websites.
We really enjoyed it here.
