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-La’s 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, Café 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 government’s policy of balancing the economies
