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
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.
The staff is professional, courteous, patient and prompt. The service is impeccable, and thoughtful. They will even deliver a late afternoon/early evening hot tea along some desserts to your room everyday. Huge spacious rooms, our washroom there is bigger than our room that we had a few days later in Hong Kong! Modern amenities that are well maintained/kept. Housekeeping is very prompt and thorough.
The ground is beautiful, and building is beautiful Very happy with the hotel/resort. The only thing to be aware of: it's some distance from the city of Hualien. Taxi fare would cost about $425 NTD one way.
This is a resort with daily activities such as yoga, DIY classes, boat tour etc. There are gym, swimming pool, bars, restaurant etc.
We reached this resort around 9pm & need to leave next morning by 9am for the train. Hence, we don't have time to enjoy the activities. We have yet to try the breakfast.. Staff are extremely courteous.
The resort & room was the filming site of Taiwanese drama 醉后决定爱上你。
We invited friends family member including kids to visit Hualien and spent two nights in Promisedland resort.
This resort is not only suitable for family trip but also good for couples.
What impressed me is not the beautiful river, but was their hospitality and responsiveness. One of friend's kid has food restriction (only want to eat certain kind of food), their staff tried their best to meet our expectations which was very considerable.
In the resort, they had lof of indoor and outdoor activities for us to join. Natrual park is a must-to-visit. They maintain the park very well.
Opportunity for improvement: slow check-in speed at concierge
