TAIPEI, Taiwan — With Taiwan dropping onto bucket lists the world over, the Grand Hyatt Taipei is harnessing three great drivers of the country’s appeal in a tempting new stay package called Tempting Taiwan.
The three-night package trades on the rising allure of Taiwan as a destination for outdoors enthusiasts, design aficionados and value-minded travelers on the go between Feb. 1 and Aug. 31.
Each of these three attributes has been called out by such publications as the New York Times and National Geographic Traveler as they’ve reasoned why the country belonged on its top destination lists for 2014 and 2015 respectively.
Priced at US $1,625 for two guests, Tempting Taiwan ushers guests into the great outdoors at Yangmingshan National Park, up to the heights of East Asia’s most inspired skyscraper and toward any number of retail outlets across the city, including Din Tai Fung, a Michelin-star restaurant that may rank as one of the world’s best value dining opportunities.
“The world is just waking up to Taiwan as one of Asia’s most compelling stops,” said Kai Speth, general manager of the Grand Hyatt Taipei. “It’s a country with a conscience, and a soul. It’s where all Asia is going.”
Indeed, Taiwan has been lauded in recent months, and years, for its dramatically improved quality of air, its embrace of its indigenous people, its efficient rail network, its food (as always) and its design chops. Taipei is set to command center stage in 2016 as the World Design Capital, joining the likes of Cape Town and Helsinki.
To stimulate the world’s enthusiasm for the destination, Tempting Taiwan includes accommodation in a grand room, tickets to the top of Taipei 101 (the world’s tallest skyscarper from 2004 to 2010), a guided tour of Yangmingshan National Park, an NT $300 ValueCard for redemption at key outlets across the city and late check out.
The hotel itself is getting ready for its Grand Re-Launch March 31 after a landmark three-year makeover that saw the hotel stripped to its concrete bones and rebuilt from the ground up, including each of 853 rooms and suites, and much of the hotel’s back-of house infrastructure from electrical to aircon.
