In the 1990s, internationalization and deregulation propelled robust economic and trade growth in Taiwan, which in turn led to huge increases in international travel services. In 1993, the Far Eastern Group opened the Far Eastern Plaza Hotel in its Taipei headquarters complex and contracted day-to-day operations to Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts. The Far Eastern Plaza Hotel Taipei has 420 rooms with magnificent views, eight fine restaurants serving Chinese and foreign cuisine, banquet halls, swimming pools, aroma therapy and other amenities. It offers five-star service to guests and is widely praised by guests from around the world. The Far Eastern Plaza Hotel Taipei is planning for a remodeling in the not too distant future, to improve the experience of guests with brand-new spatial design and services for guests from around the world.
Since the government allowed Mainland Chinese tourists to visit Taiwan and the opening of Tainan Science Park there has been a significant increase in demand for rooms. In 2008, the Far Eastern Group opened Far Eastern Plaza Hotel Tainan and likewise contracted the operation to Shangri-La. With 336 exquisite guest rooms, this is the largest five-star hotel in Tainan and the first luxury hotel outside Taipei managed by an international hotel group. The new Tainan hotel offers guests comfortable and spacious rooms and refined amenities.
Far Eastern Plaza Hotel Tainan is a new landmark in Tainan City. The cylindrical building soars upwards in the neighborhood behind the train station and is adjacent to FE21' Mega Store and National Cheng Kung University. Dining and guest rooms alike offer great views of the urban scenery that surrounds it. Shopping, culture monuments, food and academia are all nearby. The hotel has various banquet halls and international meeting rooms with theater seating to accommodate large international meetings and banquets.
Far Eastern Plaza Hotel Taipei and Tainan have earned the unanimous approval of travelers worldwide and won various international awards with their hospitality and international service standards.
