Nestled amidst the lush landscapes of central Taiwan, Sun Moon Lake beckons travellers with its serene beauty and cultural richness. Taiwan’s largest natural lake is celebrated for its stunning vistas. This idyllic destination captivates visitors with its crystalline waters reflecting the surrounding emerald mountains. Whether you seek tranquillity amid the misty mornings, adventure along its scenic trails, or immersion in the Indigenous Thao culture, Sun Moon Lake offers an enchanting escape where nature and heritage harmoniously converge, promising an unforgettable journey into Taiwan’s heartland.

The upscale Wyndham Sun Moon Lake in Yuchi County, a 15-storey hotel, houses 203 rooms. Although it is not situated directly on the waterfront, it is conveniently close to the lake. Guests arriving at Taipei’s Taoyuan International Airport can take the high-speed rail from Tao Yuan station to Taichung. Additionally, there will be scheduled shuttle services from Taichung Train Station to the hotel. While 70% of visitors to Sun Moon Lake are primarily domestic travelers, the remaining 30% come from Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, the US, and other parts of the world.

The grand opening was held on 18 June 2024. The partnership between Lealea Group‘s Lealea Hotels & Resorts and Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has led to the successful launch of Wyndham’s third hotel in Taiwan and Lealea Group’s second Wyndham property, following the opening of Ramada Encore by Wyndham Hualien in 2020.

Lealea Hotels & Resorts Co., Ltd. was founded in 1990.
