入住酒店,虽然有海景,但完全不临海,需要开车上一个很陡的单行道山坡。但景色只有一面很好,另外一面很普通。酒店设施完全无法忍受。浴室厕所需要上阶梯,但完全无门,面积只有二十平米左右。 双人入住,完全没有行李空间。泳池,观景台不是特别干净,而且很多人,如同景区。房间标价高,但房间里只有瓶装水免费,不值得也不推荐前来。 When we arrived, you have to passing through a steep mountain with a one way drive road. The facility came with an one side ocean view. The design of this facility is totally unacceptable, for instance, the shower area and toilet are few steps higher and facing to bed without door. Moreover we are couple check in the room, there is no space for our luggage. The swimming pool and the viewing platform are not only filled with people, but also low level of hygienic(not clear water with leaves). The prices is five stars facility level, but not worth to stay here.( with only bottled water free charge).

Stayed there from 27-29th June 2017. We hop on a taxi from Zuoying station in Kaohsiung. Do take note that the cost is around 2500+ TWD from the station and it is advisable to go by meter fare. The journey takes around 2 hours so I would still advise people to take the taxi there instead of the bus which is cheaper but the difference is not too much. At least you are able to reach your destination with your luggage without climbing up the hill which in this case you need if you were to take the Kending express bus. My taxi driver almost missed the entry which was a small road and had to go up a hill. Once I was up the hill it was instantly recognisable as it is the most beautiful hotel over that area. We had the biggest room available for that hotel as we had 3 persons. At first glance the room was very spacious and big. Toilet is also within that area which is also spacious but had a drawback which is why I'm going to give 4 stars. You see for normal hotels, there would be a segregated area for the toilet so that you can't really hear or smell what people are doing in the toilet. Unless of course you are coming with just another person who happens to be your other half else it would be quite embarrassing as you can hear the person taking a dump and it can really smell. For this hotel it only has a partition shares the same area as the bedroom. However it is not that bad as there is still a fan that you can switch on for ventilation. You gotta imagine when one of us takes a dump and the rest of us had to leave the room so that we won't have any aroma therapy. The shower was also something of concern as it was those not mounted on the wall and had to take the shower head and do our showering activities which was quite inconvenient for us. Bed wise it was comfortable, many pillows were available and they provided sufficient water bottles around. They also provided the drying rack as people who comes Kending more or less will do water sports. However for us we did our washing of clothes there and they provided free washing liquid (we had to wash in the huge basin which we bathe as there were no washing machine available which is also one drawback). As the period we went ''twas extremely warm, we managed to dry our clothes within the day of putting it out. As there was a shuttle service every 45 minutes, they drove us to the Kending Food Street where we get our meals and shopping. Their last pickup for the day was at 9.45pm so plenty of time for us to roam around in Kending and still get back on time. We also managed to rent electric bikes there to roam around the area but as our hotel was located at a hill, they arranged with the bike rental vendor to drive us up the hill after returning the bikes back to the shop. Such a wonderful service! Not to forget their breakfast was Super awesome! As we stayed there for 3 days 2 nights, we managed to try almost their entire selection of breakfasts! The staff was also Super friendly when visitors (not guests) wanted to take picture of that area and were even welcomed to take more pictures at the roof which was another excellent place to see stars at night which we did! My friends even managed to see shooting stars! At the last day we opted for in room breakfast which was awesome! No need to change and we cam have breakfast on bed! Woohoo! I would say I might return again but probably just for 1 or 2 nights stay as it is quite inconvenient sometimes to rush for the shuttle service and experience the showering facilities and combined toilet areas. But other than that it is an excellent place to see stars and see the view of the sea.

Had a free upgrade to the sea view room. It was stunning. Just like the photos that you see online. The view was stunning. You can literally see the sea from the bedroom. Even from the breakfast area you can see the sea. The bed was comfortable and they provided numerous pillows. The room was clean and tidy as well. However, i do wish that there had been something to hang my clothes in the toilet while bathing (the toilet was definitely big). Also, the water pressure could not be adjusted (it was a little too strong for me). Nevertheless, the room was stunning. Breakfast was also really nice! Really beautifully arranged and delicious as well! Do keep an eye out on the road to turn up to this hotel (missed it the first 2 times). Really near the town with 7/11 and the nightmarket but still quiet and peaceful at night. Within a 15 minute drive max to both stunning locations for sunrise and sundown (plenty of parking space). Will definitely be back if given the chance!

Nicely located away from the town, while not too far driving to the destinations around. It is located on a small mountain which is hard to find at first, but the view of the sea is wonderful. The decorations and services are nice, good outdoor breakfast. Driving to the town center is about 5 minutes.

This is one of the more interesting hotels I have stayed in Taiwan! The outdoor view is awesome coupled with the December monsoon winds! At night, you can go up to the roof for star gazing with your love ones or take star gazing shots. The surroundings are not polluted with lots of lights. The complimentary breakfast of eggs with free-flow drinks and bread is good! The interior design of the rooms are specially unique to each room. Very good settings for couples! It is definitely worth staying!

My boyfriend and I stayed 1 night in their double room. We really enjoyed our stay, and only wished we had stayed longer! All staff were consistently warm and sincere and made us feel so at home during our entire stay. When we first arrived, a female staff (probably heard us pulling our luggage) greeted us at the entrance and helped us with our luggage immediately. She sat us down and served complimentary juice, a small act we appreciated during the hot summer weather. The hotel also offers free shuttle service to Kenting Main Street, as well as an affordable, small-group tour to key attractions. I don't think this was mentioned anywhere on their website (which they should!). It added much convenience to travellers like us who didn't drive. We took advantage of their free shuttle service and was served by their driver/guide - Xiao Ou (小欧). He was a sincere and helpful guy, asking us if we slept well and enjoyed our stay. During the rides, he also offered interesting local information, such as crab migration seasons, local food etc. He definitely helped to create a local, authentic travel experience for us. Our hotel room was very comfortable, bed and showers were good. We could also look out to the grass field and ocean from our balcony. One could also arrange for breakfast to be served to your room, a thoughtful service we appreciated. When we were leaving, the staff went out of the way to check our bus transfer schedule, calling the bus company, making sure we'd reach our destination on time. Xiao Ou also sent us to the bus station, free-of-charge. How helpful can they get! South of Border is a thoughtful, customer-oriented hotel which goes out of its way to provide an enjoyable stay for guests. I can barely find anything bad about our stay. The high standard of service is praiseworthy! It almost feels like staying in a second home, with your friends. We strongly recommend them to travellers seeking an authentic and comfortable stay in Kenting! Thanks for the wonderful stay!

We stayed here over the weekend and it is a really nice place. Really nicely designed rooms and outdoor areas and staff are helpful. Unfortunately there were two things which were a problem. The first is that it rained the entire time we were there, not an issue normally but a big problem at this hotel because there are no communal areas inside. it is just your room and then the outside parts. The second issue was that our bed was full of bed bugs and I got badly bitten.

I believe that many people visit Kenting because of the Taiwanese Movie "Cape No.7"(2008). In fact, the name "South of Border" is also from the works of Japanese Writer "Murakami Haruki" Location: 15 minutes drive from the Kenting High Street. A very quiet place at uphill area with good view of the sea and the light-house (landmark). The location is near to some of the famous scenic point in Southern Kenting. Excellent place if you have rent a car / motorbike. Not easy accessible by public transport. Room: Nice and clean room in greek style with some modern decoration and furniture. The balcony is very spacious and romantic for moonlight bathing. Staff: Friendly and helpful staffs I have also stayed other In conclusion, I found this hotel is the most comfortable place during my trip in Kenting.

I’m surprised there hasn’t been a review for this lovely minsu yet. My friend and I (both female) stayed here for two nights and had a wonderful experience. The staff are top notch – really friendly and accommodating, the premises are clean, and the Greek-style architecture lends a languid, relaxing atmosphere. Perched on top of a small hill, the minsu offers up some beautiful vantage views of the seaside and Eluanbi lighthouse on one side, and almost Hobbiton-esque pastures on the other. The rooms are modern, tastefully furnished and come with wifi, complimentary bottled drinks and bathing supplies. You can also borrow some of their books to read, including the novel by Japanese author Haruki Murakami , “South of the Border, North of the Sun” after which this minsu is named – don’t think there is an English version though. Do note however that most of the rooms seem to have an open toilet/bathroom concept, i.e. there are no doors but there’s a partition separating these areas from the rest of the room, so it may be more suitable for couples or same-gender travelling companions. When we first arrived we were a tad dismayed to find that the minsu was situated on a hill, quite a distance from the Kenting main street. But our concerns were allayed when we found out that it provides a free shuttle service (about 5-7 min) to the main street at stipulated times. The staff would also happily arrange an extra taxi service for you at other times, at your own cost. In fact, being far away from the touristy parts of Kenting proved to be a blessing in disguise, as we were able to relax in this peaceful and charming little nook. We were perfectly happy just lounging on the deck chairs in front of the minsu, doing absolutely nothing except looking at the sea! Breakfast is a simple but tasty affair of eggs, salad with tuna bits, toast and juice. But the real treat is enjoying your meal at the patio with the sea breeze nipping at your hair and taking in the charming seaside views. The minsu also provides two guided tours with different trails. I took one of the tours (which includes the Eluanbi lighthouse, amongst others) for a small fee – note that this excludes entrance fees to attraction sites and lunch which you have to pay out of your pocket, but they are generally very affordable. The tour is from 12-5pm and our guide, Ah Bu, was knowledgeable and passionate. All in all, a wonderful experience at a charming minsu with dedicated and extremely friendly staff. I’ll definitely stay here again when I return to Kenting!
