Taipei’s Hot Springs

Taipei’s hotsprings are known far and wide and can be found mainly in the UraiBeitou and Yang Ming Shan area.  In fact, the number of hot springs or onsen are so numerous that it links the entire area between Beitou, Xin-Beitou and Yangmingshan.

Types of Hot Springs in Beitou

There are three distinct varieties of sulphurous hot springs in Beitou:

  1. Green sulphur which is found mainly around the Thermal Valley.  Enjoy green sulphur hot springs at places such as Beitou Park Outdoor Hot Spring Bathing pool and Shinshukaku Hotel. Water tend to be green-tinted like jade.
  2. White sulphur also known as milk springs to the locals because the water tends to be milky white.  The majority of Beitou hot spring hotels and inns pipe in white sulphur waters.
  3. Iron sulphur which is found in springs in the upstream mountain-valley area called ding-Beitou (頂北投). They are characterised by transparent water in iron precipitate.

The Grand View Resort Beitou is located at ding-Beitou, and therefore runs iron sulphur spring water from its pipe. Spring water running from upstream sources are deemed by some to be purer and cleaner.

Hot spring Experience at Grand View Resort Beitou

The Grand View Resort Beitou was our undeniable first choice for an exclusive hot spring experience in one of their luxury hot tub rooms.

The private 90-minute hot spring experience can be considered an indulgence but we were convinced that it was a worthy price to pay for its luxurious and premier facilities.  During peak tourist periods, reservation of a hot spring private suite is strongly encouraged.

At Taipei, the hot-spring facilities must undergo evaluation by the Taipei City Government before being allowed to display the official Hot Spring Mark.  The Grand View Resort Beitou is one of those which are certified with this trademark.

The Luxurious Private Hotspring Experience

The Grand View Resort Beitou exudes elegance and class the moment you step in.  Located at a hilltop among lush greenery, it offers a range of high-end hotel rooms that comes fitted with its own individual hot tubs, ensuring that every one of its guests leaves with a hot spring experience.

Prices for such hotel rooms at the Grand View Resort Beitou are steep, therefore, we opted for the more affordable hot tub suite which was mainly a day room fitted exclusively with a large indoor tub and shower facilities.  The hot tub facilities are located at a private wing of the hotel, complete with its own reception and waiting area.

The hot spring experience begins – follow the sign…

The premium hot spring experience begins

At the Grand View Resort Beitou, no one hot tub suite is the same – They are all designed and decorated with their own central theme and named accordingly.  Elegance is the common theme that is repeated in all its hot tub suites.

Privacy is guaranteed for each of these hot spring suites

Our choice of suite was Auspicious Wood (祥木) – an indoor room. You can choose a room with an outdoor tub if you prefer some sunlight.

The indoor hot spring suite that we chose was Auspicious Wood

Such a beautiful and relaxing room that looks exactly the same as it promised in the photographs.  I began to wonder if 90 minutes was sufficient for us to enjoy this room.



Filling the large tub with natural spring water.  The Beitou spring waters are sulphurous and therefore tends to give out a slightly pungent smell.

Mix the hot spring water with ordinary tap water to adjust the temperature that is comfortable for you.

All hot tub suites at the Grand View Resort Beitou comes with an ensuite shower and bathroom facilities, towels, accessories and toiletries that are needed.

Complimentary peach yogurt, intended to be consumed after the hot tub session.  A nice treat for us, which felt somehow very comforting after hot-tubbing.

As we found out for ourselves, 90 minutes of hot tubbing turns out to be nicely sufficient. In fact, the recommendation was to take short dips of 15 mins each, followed by a rest.  As part of the excellent service, the staff gave us a reminder call 10 mins before the end of the session.  This allows us sufficient time to make preparations to leave.

Besides the individual hot spring suites that offers a private sanctuary, the Grand View Resort Beitou also offers outdoor hot spring pools and public pools at other costs.

Final Verdict

The hot spring experience at the Grand View Resort Beitou can simply be summarised by one word – amazing.   With immaculate and thoughtful service, it is definitely money well spent.  This experience is highly recommended. We will definitely be back again!
