Hoshinoya opens first Taiwanese hot springs resort
POSTED 22 Jul 2019 . BY Jane Kitchen
Hoshinoya Resorts has opened a luxury hot spring resort in Taiwan, located in Guguan, a hot spring region in the suburbs of Taichung. Hoshinoya Guguan is the brand’s first resort in Taiwan and only the second outside of Japan.

The resort uses the abundance of hot spring water and the topography of a valley surrounded by mountains to bring guests closer to nature.

Each room has a semi-open-air bath, where guests can enjoy water flowing directly from the natural source of the hot spring at any time and as much as they want.

The flowing waters of the hot spring and the natural spring water of the Taiwan Central Mountain Range are utilised in the design of the public spaces.

There is a large public bath in Hoshinoya Guguan, as well as indoor baths modelled after Japanese onsen hot springs.

After bathing in the hot springs, guests can take a walk in the water garden and listen to the soothing sounds of flowing water.

Early in the morning, in a terrace surrounded by the woods, a stretching programme based on Qigong is offered. In the evening, a hot spring expert teaches guests about hot springs, showcasing stretches that can be performed while entering the water. After bathing, guests are encouraged to try a Taiwanese tea-tasting.
