Our Stories

Friends from the Netherlands

禪與松休閒養生會館:遠從荷蘭來的朋友After a long journey from Europe, these two friends from the Netherlands stayed for six relaxing days. They assured us that they felt the comfort of being at home, yet with excellent service and satisfying food which they claimed rivaled that of Michelin star restaurants. We made a deal to see each other again.


A Swiss family moved by their stay

禪與松休閒養生會館:來自瑞士,平易近人的一家人Commenting on their time at Zen and Pine the father noted that “It felt like staying in paradise.” The elder brother and younger sister always wore a smile on their faces, while their mother was very touched by her stay. Before leaving, she hugged a staff member with tears around her eyes and said that she felt reluctant to leave. We assured her we would be happy to meet again.


Welcome Ms. Servelle and the group from Germany

禪與松休閒養生會館:歡迎來自德國的好朋友We warmly welcomed Ms. Servelle and her group from Germany. Before leaving, they gave Zen and Pine Resort some lovely souvenirs including German wine, spices, and a collection of stamps in appreciation for their meaningful stay. These grateful visitors noted the paradise-like quality of the peaceful setting, far enough away from urban bustle, yet close enough to local sights to enjoy conveniently. Our German guests also remarked how they liked the bright, clean, and comfortable accommodations during their stay. Seeing everything in the region was not possible for Ms. Servelle and friends, so they promised to return for another visit to fully take in the splendor of the Nantou region. It is always a pleasure to host guests again!


Friends from Kaohsiung
