Pamper and Relaxation at Full Moon Spa, Wulai TW

I've always considered myself as a budget traveler. I prefer traveling on low season when airfare, hotels and even attractions offer great deals and discounted rates. I also make sure that the location of the hotel I choose is near the places I wish to visit and accessible by public transport. Save for very rare indulgences, I'd rather save money to fund my next trip rather than booking a 5-star accommodation. As long as the room is clean, has a bed and a private toilet and bath, I can live in a 12sqm room (the smallest room I've stayed in Macau) and I really won't mind.

For my recent Taiwan trip, we thought of splurging a bit when I came across Full Moon Spa in Wulai, New Taipei City. There are several accommodations in the village offering cheaper rates but I fell in love with the rooms in Full Moon so we both agreed on spending more for luxury and comfort. Besides, having your own in-room bathtub with hot spring water sounds delightful.

The dining area also serves as the lobby, adorned mostly with wood giving the place a warmer and homey ambiance. You can opt to seat outdoors to enjoy the scenic view of the natural landscape.

We booked a cozy Luxury Double Room with a four poster bed, LCD television with cable channels, mini refrigerator, complimentary coffee and tea and most importantly, a jacuzzi tub with hot spring water -- the main reason why we chose Full Moon Spa amongst other hotels in the area.

Full Moon Spa provides two complimentary entrance coupons to their sauna and separate men and women public hot springs per guest. The public pools are equipped with massage jets, the areas are spacious and not too crowded. But since I'm not comfortable being naked in public, this cypress-made bath tub is really the best thing for me to enjoy Wulai's famous hot spring water.

The package we availed with Full Moon Spa came with complimentary dinner. The staff asked us if we wanted a seafood or a beef set meal upon check-in and since the description were a bit vague, we opted to get both. Dinner was average, I wish we could've spent the money in more delicious food from nearby restaurants if it wasn't included in the rate we paid in the hotel.

Full Moon Spa may be pricey compared to other hotels in Wulai but the topnotch amenities they offer make it quite reasonable to pay TWD4500 (Php6750) per night in a Luxury Double Room. The location is also a plus factor with its proximity to the Old Street, perfect for those late night cravings. Above all, soaking in Wulai's famous hot spring in the comfort and privacy of your room is worth every centavo. Looking forward to coming back to Wulai soon!
