Splash into Summer at Shangri-La Taipei

Nestled among the trees on Dunhua South Road, Shangri-La Far Eastern, Taipei is a hotel destination worth considering the next time you’re looking for a place to stay in Taipei City.  

“The beauty of the hotel is that it’s located only 10 minutes from Taipei 101 and the Xinyi District shopping and business area,” says Marco Vazzoler, Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts area manager for Taiwan and general manager of Shangri-La Far Eastern, Taipei. “Our rooms have an excellent view of 101 and the area, and since we’re located in a more residential part of the city, all of the everyday conveniences are very close.” 

The hotel’s interior is luxuriously decorated, its comfortable rooms providing stylish elegance with Chinese elements. Aside from being a great place to call a second home for your next Taipei trip, Shangri-La also boasts an impressive variety of culinary choices, with five restaurants and three lounges to choose from allowing you to select the venue that best suits your taste. With everything from Italian to Chinese, Shanghainese, Cantonese, and even Japanese cuisine and an all-day buffet, you’re sure to find the apple of your eye at one of the restaurants at Shangri-La Far Eastern. 

This summer until September 3, the hotel is offering a special Summer Water World family room package. This package includes a family club floor dedicated to fun facilities and activities such as race car simulators, Nintendo Switch games, cooking and handicraft classes, and a playroom. For those who would like to explore the city, there is another special package with MRT and Maokong Gondola passes, dining credit for use at restaurants, and more. 

Those who wish to cool off can choose between two pools – a summer pool on the seventh floor and an outdoor pool located on the roof with breathtaking views of Taipei City  – to create unique memories while enjoying their summer stay. Guests can also attend the Summer Pool Party on Saturdays and Sundays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.  

Whether guests come for a wedding or corporate event or choose to take advantage of the hotel’s gym, massage services, saunas, and steam rooms, Shangri-La Far Eastern, Taipei strives to leave guests with memories from their stay. 

“We’re looking to provide our guests with an experience,” says Vazzoler. “When they are in their room, when they go out to eat, we want to create an experience and make our guests feel that they are being taken care of. Of course, you need to sleep well and eat well, but we like to take that the extra mile by creating memorable experiences.” 

In addition to the Summer Water World event, Shangri-La’s restaurants are welcoming the season with special events, including its “four-hands” Cantonese cuisine collaboration between the head chefs of the Shang Palace, located at the Shangri-La Far Eastern, Taipei, and the Moon Pavilion, situated on the 48th floor of Mega 50, Banqiao’s first international five-star dining complex. This gastronomic event will see the two chefs spending two weeks at each location, offering a curated menu of Cantonese delicacies. 

In September of this year, the hotel will also welcome a visiting chef from one Michelin star Shang Palace of Shangri-La Singapore. In November, its Marco Polo restaurant, located on the hotel’s 38th floor, will be led by a two-starred Michelin guest chef serving a special Italian menu.  

“We are very proud of our restaurants, and we consider Shangri-La Far Eastern, Taipei as a culinary hub for first-time and returning guests to enjoy an unforgettable meal, and we continue to innovate with culinary events to cater to the most sophisticated appetite,” Vazzoler says.   

Despite the difficulties experienced by the hotel industry during the pandemic, Vazzoler and his team managed to cope with the adversity and find new offerings for customers. Now, the team is ready to continue providing guests with unique and luxurious travel and dining experiences.  

“Indeed, during the pandemic period, we learned to become flexible, dynamic, and to reinvent ourselves,” says Vazzoler. “After the lifting of travel restrictions, we saw a quick spark in demand as people yearned to resume travel and spend time with family and friends while having fun and relaxing. Therefore, at Shangri-La, we are providing a variety of options that appeal to different types of travelers.”
