The number of Japanese tourists traveling to Taiwan has surged in recent years. The Japanese now represent the second largest visitor group to Taiwan, trailing only the mainland Chinese. This is partly due to the convenience (Tokyo is less than a three hour flight from Taipei) and history, but also because of the creature comforts that make Japanese visitors feel at home. Last year, Taiwan welcomed more than 2 million visitors from Japan -- a 16% increase on the previous year, according to Taiwan’s Tourism Bureau.
“At Grand Hyatt Taipei, our mission is to make our guests feel at home. Our Japanese restaurant, Irodori, as well as our international all-day dining restaurant, Café, are especially popular with Japanese visitors,” said the general manager of Grand Hyatt Taipei, Jan-Hendrik Meidinger. “A handful of our staff also speak fluent Japanese, enabling better service for Japanese guests.”
Located adjacent to Taipei 101 shopping mall in the city’s main commercial district, Xinyi, Grand Hyatt Taipei recently underwent a USD1.6 billion renovation of all 850 guestrooms and suites, lobby, three restaurants, and Club Lounge. In 2016, the hotel also opened a new luxurious Oasis Spa featuring heated thermal baths, steam and sauna rooms, and a cold plunge pool, in addition to separate men’s and women’s relaxation lounges as well as three treatment rooms -- including a couple’s suite for romantic getaways.
Today, Grand Hyatt Hotel Taipei is still the hotel of choice for many visiting international personalities, government dignitaries, and royal families. Some of the hotel’s renowned guests have included Beyoncé, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Snoop Dogg, Linkin Park, The Eagles, Andrea Bocelli and Cesar Millan. The hotel is also popular amongst Japanese celebrities and sports personalities including X Japan, Namie Amuro, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and Hidetoshi Nakata.
