The internationalization and liberalization trends emerging in the 1990's propelled Taiwan's prosperous economic growth and spurred tremendous demands for international business travels. The Group established Far Eastern Plaza Hotel within its Taipei headquarters in 1993, which is managed by Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts. Shangri-La's Far Eastern Plaza Hotel Taipei offers a wide range of facilities including 420 guest rooms with impressive views, eight restaurants featuring Chinese and Western cuisines, banquet and function rooms of different sizes, swimming pools and Horizon Spa. The professional and attentive services at five-star hotel standards have been widely acclaimed by travelers at home and abroad and have frequently been awarded as "The 500 Best Hotels in the World".
In light of complying with the government's liberalization in allowing Mainland Chinese tourists to visit Taiwan as well as traveling needs brought by Tainan Science Park, Far Eastern Group opened Shangri-La's Far Eastern Plaza Hotel Tainan in 2008. With 336 exquisite guest rooms, this largest five-star international hotel in Tainan is the first luxury hotel outside Taipei managed by an international hotel group. After successfully managing Shangri-La's Far Eastern Plaza Hotel Taipei, the new Tainan Hotel is confident to offer guests with comfortable and spacious rooms, refined services and supreme enjoyment.
Shangri-La's Far Eastern Plaza Hotel Tainan is the new landmark of Tainan City. With column façade rising up located at the rear of Tainan Train Station and adjacent to FE21' Mega Store and National Cheng Kung University, both its dining areas and exquisite guest rooms command a spectacular surrounding view of the city. Department store shopping, cultural and historical relics, tourist spots with local delicacies and educational institutions are all accessible within short distance. The Hotel is also equipped with a variety of banquet rooms and a theatrical international conference room to satisfy the demands for large international meetings and various types of banquets.
