Onsen De Luxe

HK Magazine - - TRAVEL -

There’s a string of hot spring ho­tels in Jiaoxi, and the new is one of the best. Mere min­utes from the sta­tion, a sense of peace will wash over you as soon as you step into the lobby, where you’ll be of­fered a cup of warm ju­jube tea amongst hand­made clay or­chids hang­ing on the earth-toned walls.

Check into the Fam­ily Twin room if you’re trav­el­ing in a group of four, a spa­cious Washitsu-in­spired room fit­ted with hard­wood plank floor­ing and a semi-open hot spring tub on its bal­cony. Grab a can of ice cold beer from the fridge, im­merse your­self into the steam­ing bath and gaze out through the bam­boo hedge which de­liv­ers pri­vacy as well as nat­u­ral sun­light.

If the cozy pri­vate onsen ex­pe­ri­ence makes you not even want to leave the ho­tel, on the top floor of­fers a de­light­ful din­ner op­tion.

Slip into a yukata be­fore you get your dose of the restau­rant’s fa­mous shabu-shabu. If your body still screams for more of Jiaoxi’s hot springs, you might want to take a dip in the hot spring swim­ming pool on the rooftop, where you can en­joy a movie on the enor­mous out­door pro­jec­tion screen un­der a canopy of twin­kling stars.

$1,813 for Fam­ily Twin room (ac­com­mo­dates four). 67 Wen­quan Rd., Jiaoxi Town­ship, Yi­lan, (+886) 3-910-0000, well­springsilks.com
