I stayed at the first Starwood Resort in Taiwan, back in the first week of Jan, 2016. The Westin Tashee Resort has opened it’s doors since Christmas 2015. We booked the opening special which includes breakfast for two and double starpoints if you are a SPG member.
I have a detailed blog on the hotel environment here (click here)
As the Platinum member of SPG, we were upgraded to the Family suite. Our check-in agent told us that only 40% of the rooms were ready, and they were doing some final touches .
Our suite had a separate living area and a guest washroom, there was also a balcony looking out to the swimming pool and the gold course next door. The living area is well contained with a work station which has adequate stationaries.
The minibar we had in our suite was overheated, we had it changed once, but when we got our soymilk from it the next morning our drinks were warm. The engineer said it was probably the design of the cabinet which cause the problem. They use the Illy coffee capsules machine here, the staff was willing to give us one extra capsule the next day after we finished the ones provided.
Moving onto the bedroom area, as usual we have the heavenly bed from Westin which was as good as always. There was another balcony in the bedroom with the same view. In-room dining wasn’t available at the time we stayed, due to the fact that they were waiting on their cutleries.
The bathroom was spacious, with a bathtub on the left and shower and toilet on the left. Unlike other Starwood hotels which provides a set of luxury brand amenities for suites, Westin Tashee they have the Westin White Tea bath and body, the ones you get in any of the Westin hotels. They provides a bath loafer but not bath salt for bubble bath.
Upon check out, we found that the carpet wasn’t looking like it was the day before, vacuuming was needed.
