Het grootste meer van Taiwan dankt haar naam aan de vorm. Het noordelijke deel lijkt op een zon en het zuidelijke deel op een halve maan. Midden in het meer is een klein eilandje, met de naam Lalu. Het is een populaire bestemming vanwege de mogelijkheid om een boottochtje te maken op het meer. Bovendien kunt u bij de lokale restaurantjes uitstekende visgerechten eten. Tijdens uw bezoek aan deze omgeving geniet u afwisselend van adembenemende uitzichten en fotogenieke tempelcomplexen. Zowel de Wen Wu-tempel als de Tse En-pagode zijn op fantastische locaties gebouwd. Als u tijdens uw Taiwan-reis een bijzondere accommodatie wilt ervaren, dan is het luxueuze The Lalu zeker een aanrader.
"Bring a mosquito-repellent with you"
When it comes to the best location, The Lalu is on top of the list (Hey, of course--this is used to be where the Chang Kai-Shekâ€™s summer house situated). However, this hotel is over 15 years old, property and facilities are a bit run down. Service is good; food at The Tea House and The Lake View Chinese Restaurant although is not a wow, not a disappointment either. My heads-up to whoever is interested in staying in this hotel is bringing a mosquito-repellent with you. Each room has full-size glass sliding doors that separate the room and the balcony. Normally the door might be left open while guests enjoy the lake view, or when the house keepers do the cleaning work at the balcony. It leaves a good chance for the mosquitoes to fly in without notice. Before going to bed, without a 2nd thought, I unplugged the electric mosquito repellent for charging my hand-phone. As my sister and I request very different room temperature for sleeping, she wrapped herself in the blanket but I slept without it on me. The disaster happened the next morning, I woke up with over 20 mosquito-bite blisters across my 4 limbs. Unluckily I have sensitive skin, and spent the following 2 weeks fighting the super allergic reactions. Since it is unsure if the electric mosquito-repellent they provide works, it would be better bringing your own one with you.
"Best is the view"
It is a very luxury hotel, just sit by the lake. The lobby is on the top floor, 8th. and 7 guest rooms floor under below. The best thing I would like to mention is the view. Just so nice. 180 degree of the lake. The other good thing, is the swimming pool. The service level is also very high. I like it. It is pretty much expensive.
"A Triumph of Design over Functionality"
My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights in October 2017. Whilst we had a very pleasant stay, and the staff could not have been more helpful, the design features of the hotel are rather odd! It starts when you reach the front door and the doorman warns you not to step into the six-inch-deep mirror pools that flank the entrance. Then at check-in you find that Reception is on the top floor, and that all the rooms and the pool are below you (the hotel is built into the side of a steep hill, and you enter at the top of the hill). You get to the (impressive looking) room, and have to play a game of hunt the light switches and aircon controls. (Hint: the light switches are let into the side of the bedhead with another set at the side of the washbasin, and the aircon controls are behind a small door let into the top of the bedhead). You go to take a shower, and find that the shower cubicle and the lavatory share a single sliding door. One cubicle or the other can be closed off from the room at any one time, but not both! You wash your hands in the basin which is let into a hardwood unit, and find there is nowhere convenient to place a towel. So unavoidably, your hands drip onto the gorgeous hardwood unit and floor. Finally, you decide to make yourself a cup of tea. You find the kettle in a cupboard and look for a socket to plug it into. Where is it? Obviously, it is inside the cupboard! You have an (excellent) meal in the hotel restaurant, and retire to bed. Then in the morning you decide to have a cooked western breakfast. All is fine and you take what you want from the buffet. Then you look for eggs, and a member of staff asks how you would like them and disappears. You sit at your table, and eventually a waitress comes with two fried eggs on a separate plate. I have travelled in many countries and probably stayed at hundred of hotels over the years, and have never had eggs served separately - almost as a separate course - before! Overall, the design of the rooms seems to me to be the product of a designer who was trying too hard. Minimalism is all very well, but surely not at the expense of functionality and convenience? When writing this I asked my wife how we should describe our stay at the Lalu. 'Hmm. Good,' she grunted, 'but pretentious'. I could not have put it better.
"Beautiful Chinese minimalism"
Beautiful hotel with the best views of the lake. The morning views with the mist and the lack of boats in the Lake are peaceful and wonderful. The interior decor is what I would call minimal , with perfectly located old pieces of traditional Chinese furniture. The flower arrangements throughout the property are both contemporary ay and serene. I would say that the property is aging in a very classy way... due to nice quality of materials. Service is great and the Chinese and Japanese restaurants are memorable
"Perfect lodging experience by Sun Moon Lake"
It is my 3rd visit to this resort hotel. The lake-front suite is perfectly fitting for couples and the facilities are outstanding including library, swimming pool and spa. Dining experience is acceptable yet not to top tier standard vs the other urban fine dining restaurants.
