Stayed 1 night with family on a Friday. Arrived mid afternoon. As we pulled in, we were promptly greeted by the bell desk. Check-in was smooth. We took a short break at the lounge area next to the lobby. The view of the Sun Moon lake was excellent. Upon being seated, we were given warm towels, nuts and plum tea.... More

The Lalu is a beautifully situated hotel by the lake, with a pool below. The rooms are large but the bathroom is divided into 3 parts with sliding partitions so there is not much privacy for anyone. This was unsatisfactory. It was difficult to locate the light switches which were hidden low down on the side of the furniture. The... More

Perfect for couples. Beautifully designed hotel with spectacular lake views. Building starting to show its age but it doesn't take away from the experience. Great Chinese food and well executed cocktails at the lobby bar at relatively reasonable prices. Definitely recommended for couples.

You should spend a relaxing time and stay in the hotel for the whole day. All suites are facing the lake and I would suggest you just order the room service and have your dinner at the balcony. The room is a bit worn out guess is lacking of maintenance but is still is and comfortable. It’s also good to... More

The Lalu Sun Moon Lake is a hotel full of history and is located on Sun Moon Lake's Lalu Peninsula. This place used to be a headquarter for the Japanese Generals; once Taiwan declared independency, Chiang Kai Shek made this his travel accommodation.

In my book, Sun Moon Lake is one of the most beautiful places in the world. THe Lalu is THE hotel to stay there. The hotel is well designed with every room looking into Sun Moon Lake.
