Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 7 April 2009

Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts recently opened its second hotel in Taiwan. The Shangri-La Far Eastern Plaza Hotel, Tainan involves an investment of around NT$6 billion, and marks the second partnership between The Far Eastern Group and Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, following the opening in 1994 of Shangri-Las Far Eastern Plaza Hotel, Taipei.

Centrally located within Tainan City, the hotel is adjacent to Tainan Railway Station. The 38-storey hotel is only a 15-minute drive from the airport and a 20-minute drive from the Tainan High Speed Rail Station (THSR), providing easy connection for locations both within Tainan and away from the city. The 336-room hotel, designed by Taiwan-based Metro Space Design, features some of the largest guestrooms in the city, with an average size of 50 square meters.

Dining options include the all-day dining restaurant, Caf at Far Eastern (10F) and Shanghai Pavilion (38F), the only restaurant serving Huaiyang cuisine in Tainan with panoramic views of the city. The hotel also features The Lobby Lounge and The Cake Shop on the lobby level and The Mezzanine Bar (2F) overlooking the lobby. Additional facilities include state of the art meeting and banquet facilities, a health club, spa and outdoor swimming pool.

Far Eastern Group Chairman Douglas Tong Hsu said, We are excited about the opening of our new hotel under the Shangri-La brand in Tainan. After more than a decade of successful collaboration in Taipei, I am confident that this second property in Tainan will garner equal level of success. We are positioned to cater to both business and leisure travelers while offering a superb destination for domestic family vacations, presenting an alternative to vacationing abroad. Moreover, I would like to create job opportunities for talents in southern Taiwan, in lieu with the governments policy of balancing the economies island wide.
