A heavenly retreat high in the hills of northeast Taiwan, Silks Place is the only hotel actually within the boundaries of the Taroko National Park, with its dramatic forested ridges and cliffs. You can enjoy the vistas from the confines of your own thermal plunge pool, or a Jacuzzi on the rooftop deck. There are also large indoor and outdoor pools, as well as a workout and yoga room whose enormous window frames expansive views. The decor is suave and modern – all clean lines and earthy hues. Recitals of folk music and dance, staged nightly around a campfire, are an added attraction.
