Taiwan hotels win for hot spring, tea tasting, and business

 

  • Unique categories tailored for local specialities and traditions
  • Awards reflect travellers love for Taiwan

Taiwan’s reputation for shopping, stunning landscapes and night markets is highlighted in today’s launch of the 2012 HotelClub Taiwan Hotel Awards. Thirty winning and finalist hotels are recognised this year for their excellence in the unique specialties that the country has to offer for both domestic and international travellers.

HotelClub Hotel Awards is a flagship programme that honours exceptional hotels from the most popular destinations around the world. The 2012 Taiwan hotel award categories are uniquely tailored for specific local customs like hot springs and night markets. The hotel winners were selected based on genuine member reviews posted on www.hotelclub.com and via HotelClub's on-the-ground hotel experts.

“Taiwan is a top destination for both our domestic and international members. Increasingly, they are looking for hotels that stand out from the crowd with unique features and are recommended by their peers. We hope these awards benefit potential travellers in helping them make more informed choices when booking hotels,” said Jonathan Starkings, Commercial Director at HotelClub.

“These awards acknowledge and reflect our travel trends that show Taiwan’s popularity with our members. According to our data, domestic travel is increasing with Taiwan as a destination country rising from seventh to first place in the past three years amongst our Taiwanese members. In addition, Taiwan is increasingly becoming a top destination for our members from Asia with Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong and Malaysia providing the most frequent travellers,” continued Starkings.

Taipei offers a great depth of contrasts for travellers. For those wanting an authentic Taiwanese hotel with opulent furnishings like a majestic palace, there is the winner of the Most Traditional Hotel, the Grand Hotel Taipei. On the opposite end is the winner of Most Futuristic Hotel, Ambience Hotel Taipei, perfect for travellers who are after the ultimate modern experience.

Another great contrast is where to enjoy Taipei during the day and at night. By day, the Taipei Palais de Chine Hotel, winner of Top Hotel for Tea Tasting, offers more than 100 types of tea to accompany an afternoon snack. By night, the winner of Best Hotel Bar After Dark, W Taipei, is the top spot to indulge in some of the best cocktails in the city.

A popular pastime for travellers, Taiwan is renowned for shopping. With its close proximity to the biggest underground shopping experience, the Cosmos Hotel Taipei is the winner of Best Hotel to Shop up a Storm. The shopping doesn’t stop after dark where the Yomi Hotel Taipei, winner of Top Hotel to Take in the Night Markets, is minutes away from some of the most popular markets.

If the big city gets too much for visitors, they can enjoy the great outdoors at Evergreen Resort Hotel Jiaosi, winner of Hottest Hot Spring Hotel or travel slightly further south to see the Top Hotel to See Taiwan's Stunning Landscapes, Hotel One Taichung.

Travellers are further rewarded when booking with HotelClub through the pioneering HotelClub Rewards Program, where every booking made earns them HotelClub Member Rewards, which can be used on their next booking.

The winning hotels will each receive a beautifully designed trophy or certificate for their lobby or reception area and will enjoy extensive promotion by HotelClub. The full list of Taiwan award winners can be found on the HotelClub Awards website at http://www.hotelclub.com.tw/Hotel-Awards/
