Seven of the 10 properties selected in a online poll as Taiwan's most beautiful resort hotels are in Hualien County and Nantou County, two of the island's top vacation destinations, according to the travel agency that conducted the survey.
Travel agency ez Travel selected Taiwan's 10 most beautiful resort hotels and 10 most beautiful metropolitan hotels for a fourth straight year based on an online vote of 150,000 netizens in December 2021 and the weighted judgments of 1,000 frequent travelers, the company said.
Four of the top resort hotels selected were in Hualien County -- the Promisedland Resort & Lagoon Hotel, Grand Cosmos Resort Ruisui Hotel, Hualien Farglory Hotel, and Gaeavilla Resort.
Three others -- the Le Midi Hotel Chitou, Hotelday Plus Sun Moon Lake and Fleur de Chine Hotel -- were in Nantou County.
Two others were in northern Taiwan -- the Hotel Royal Chiaohsi in Yilan County and the Fullon Hotel Tamsui Fishermen's Wharf in New Taipei -- and one was in southern Taiwan -- the Uni-Resort in Tainan.
Both the Promisedland Resort and Fullon Hotel Tamsui Fishermen's Wharf made the list for a fourth straight year, while the Le Midi Hotel Chitou and Grand Cosmos Resort Ruisui made the cut for a third time.
Of the most beautiful city hotels, five of the top 10 were in Taipei or its suburbs, including the Okura Prestige Taipei Hotel, Caesar Park Hotel Banqiao, Shangri-La's Far Eastern Plaza Hotel in Taipei, and Palais de Chine Hotel Taipei.
