Villa 32 is a gorgeous spa retreat located in Taiwan’s hot springs district. Nestled within the mountain valley, the hotel has a luscious natural feel to it surrounded by ancient trees, trickling waters and surreal misty vistas over the valley. Due to the natural geothermal energy beneath the grounds, the retreat has a number of private and public hot spring pools.
Villa 32 is located in the Bietou District, only a 5 minute walk from Xin Beitou MRT Station and a 45 minute drive from Taiwan’s international airport.
Villa 32 isn’t a hotel but a private bolthole for those seeking ultimate relaxation and luxury. There are only five rooms at Villa 32, two Japanese suites and three European Suites. All suites come equipped with luxurious amenities including Bang & Olufsen electronics, Hermes cutlery and skin care by L’Occitane and Dermalogica. The Matsu and Sakura suites are light, airy and minimalistic, keeping to a very strict Japanese design. Expect paper sliding doors, low furniture and a tranquil Japanese rock garden. The Azure is a gorgeous suite with simple interiors that give way to the stunning views of the misty geothermal valley. For a more luxurious stay, hole up in the Jade or Crystal suite, split over two levels, they include a hot and cold spring pool perfect for the complete spa treatment.
Why we like it
We can’t get enough of this spa hotel and how it respects its surroundings with its architecture and design resulting in a completely exclusive retreat. The geothermal water and the stunning landscapes make Villa 32 the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of Taipei.
