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.
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.
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!
We met new friends who came from Kaohsiung early in the morning. The couple also brought a baby with them on their first visit, and it was lovely to meet them!
Taking advantage of the Mid-Autumn Festival holidays, this family came from Taipei and stayed for two days. These guests were very pleasant and relaxed enjoying their many moments of happiness during the holidays. What could be more rejuvenating than drinking tea, chatting, looking at flowers, enjoying pine trees, and staring with a sense of wonder at the moon together as a family?

On warm sunny days, imagine snow comes in April.
Chinese Fringetrees, also known as April snow, have dainty rice-sized white petals as fine as lace. When the wind blows, the pleasant fragrance drifts refreshingly through the air.
In May, plums are harvested in the garden. Picking, selecting, cleaning, and making fermented plums is not an easy job, but well worth the effort.
Bamboo shoots at Zen and Pine Resort grow in the surrounding wilderness. Watch your step; the mountain path after the rain is slippery, but bamboo shoots from Zen and Pine Resort are fresh and delicious.
