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
We were making a car roundtrip. This was our station in Hualien.It is a huge area with a lot of parking space.
At first, we parked at the front of the reception. After check-in they told us to park our car in the designated parking area. Right after parking, two golf carts came to pick us and our luggage up and brought us to our room.
The room was clean, mediterrain style. The room had an entrance area, followed by a big room with our bed, sofa and TV. The bathroom was nearly as big as our room with a shower, a bathtub, and two sinks. Curiosly, the free water bottles, tea and coffee set was in the bathroom as well. They also prepared for us refillable warm tea and red bean soup, which was placed at the couchtable - great service!
The included breakfast buffet was tasty. A lot of choices of western, asian and mediterrane cuisine. Same for the eveing buffet, which was not included but the price was reasonable.
It was a really nice and enjoyable stay, depite rain. Unfortunately we just stay for two nights. They have so many events, that can fill easily up to a month without repeating! We just made a boattrip through the resort, since we had other plan outside.
Defitnetly worth the money and defitnetly want to go there again!
Had a lovely one night stay at Promisedland. We arrived late so we only had time to catch the evening show (a cabaret type show with dancing and singing) which was ok. Ground was beautiful, esp. when we got to see it on the morning cruise of (almost) the entire resort ground. Room was large and comfortable. Morning buffet breakfast had a good selection of Chinese and Western foods.
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.
