Step into the Regent Taipei and an entire world of luxury and elegance will unfold. The 23-story chic hotel features deluxe guestrooms, a wellspring spa, posh boutiques and numerous restaurants of international cuisine. The lobby will welcome you with pleasant aromas and helpful staff directing you to the elevators. But you don’t want to go to your room yet. You’ll be intrigued to explore the spacious thus inviting Galleria where world-known brands are beautifully displayed under projection lamps, a well-thought conceptual design. Or to just enjoy a crafted cocktail leisurely at the bar. When you make it into the elevator and you finally open the door, you will be pleasantly surprised with the comfortable, luxurious room with the stunning views of the city. Indulge in the deep-soaking tub with relaxing salts with a book; if you have still work to finish, the friendly working area with a large desk will accommodate your papers and electronic devices while providing a free internet Wi-Fi service. The lighting is soothing and will never irritate you. But if you are unwilling to do anything, just grab the pillows and relax on the wellspring bed with the pressure relieving mattress that will take all your worries away. On waking up, enjoy an early swim in the outdoor pool on the top floor before grabbing breakfast. Continental, Chinese and Japanese themed dishes will be all available for you and the choice is endless but my preference will go to peanut milk and pork floss bread. The day has just begun and you are in good mood. You won’t want to leave your comfort but Taipei’s bustling downtown is just steps away.
