A Silent Hot Spring Below The Starry Sky

Hoshino Yoshiharu, President of Hoshino Resort Inc. was greatly surprised upon his first visit to Guguan, Taichung. It was the rich quantities of springs and high quantity of water that attracted him, “I have never encountered such a rich source of hot springs!” Because of this recommendation, HOSHINOYA Guguan started to develop focusing on the natural environment. This most symbolic hot spring resort in Taiwan are all individual duplex rooms. All rooms are equipped with noncircular semi-outdoor natural springs (water source directly comes from underground) to ensure that water is not heated artificially. At the same time, guests can stay in a personal space where they can enjoy the hot springs privately. The design allows the cool wind to pass through the windows on both sides of the floor while the gigantic hills present itself before you and you can experience the cool breeze the hot springs even in the midsummer. The living room and bedroom floors are installed with large floor-to-ceiling windows. The light reflections in the garden create a tranquil environment, allowing the stars in the night sky to be seen. The whole scenery looks differently at different times.

In addition, restaurants in the hotel prepare a wide variety of food for guests. Cozy rooms and ever-changing menus prepared to amaze the guests even if they are staying for a long time. Using fresh ingredients from Taiwan in Japanese cuisine, all the dishes made are extraordinary delights. For example, the Nanban pickled sturgeon, which was deep-fried in advance to maintain its freshness, paired with a slightly sour Nanban pickled sauce. This refreshing but not greasy dish is especially enjoyable in the warm and humid climate of Taiwan. With the ingredients coming from Japan that adapt their cooking methods, the style can also be seen on the utensils of the gourmet. Japanese cuisine uses the world-famous Japanese porcelain wares that were made in Kutani, Bizen, and Arita. The bright colorings and craftsmanship enhance the meals visually and deliciously. 

The never-depleted HOSHINOYA Guguan spews all the year-round, a steady amount of water from the hot springs erupts throughout the year. In HOSHINOYA Guguan, the public space designed uses the rich hot springs and spring water from the Central Mountain Range of Taiwan. Colorless and tasteless alkaline water causes less irritation to the skin  and is also known as “beauty springs.” A large bathhouse is also available for enjoying this type of hot springs. The indoor hot springs are built according to the same concept used in Japanese hot springs. The outdoor hot springs are uniquely designed with open and cozy spaces, offering visitors an experience of the local natural environment of Guguan. In the water garden outside the hot spring, the echoes of flowing water running through the woods. Various flowers are planted along the waterway that leads to a stream flowing through the woods. After enjoying the hot springs, walk along the fine waterways to the gazebo, spend your leisure time, in a slow-paced relaxing environment to cleanse your soul and body.
