Four Seasons Hotel Coming To Taipei

Four Seasons Hotel Coming To Taipei

44

This is exciting — Taipei will be getting what will almost certainly be the city’s new best luxury hotel.

260-room Four Seasons Taipei being developed

Four Seasons and Yuan Lih Group have entered into an an agreement to open the Four Seasons Taipei. The new 260-room hotel will be located in the Xinyi District, directly opposite of Taipei 101, one of Asia’s most iconic skyscrapers.

The 31-story, 180-meter (591-foot) hotel will offer city and mountain views through its floor-to-ceiling windows. It will have a variety of dining venues, including a high-end Chinese restaurant, destination bar, specialty restaurant, all-day dining restaurant, pool bar, and lobby lounge. The hotel will also have an outdoor pool, spa, gym, and more.

Interestingly the Four Seasons Taipei will feature an executive club lounge. Not many Four Seasons properties have these, so it’s cool to see that this property will boast one — I’m sure it will be top notch.

An opening date hasn’t yet been announced for the Four Seasons Taipei, though construction is already underway, and is expected to be completed in “a few years.” So I’d guess it will be 2026 at the earliest, and more likely 2027, before this hotel opens.

This should set a new standard for Taipei hotels

Taiwan is an incredible place, with awesome people, food, and culture. However, historically it’s not a destination you visit because of its luxury or points hotel options.

Taipei has plenty of solid mid-range chain hotels, from the Grand Hyatt, to the W and Le Meridien, to the Kimpton. Sadly Taipei doesn’t have a single “true” luxury brand belonging to a points program, as there are no properties belonging to St. Regis, Ritz-Carlton, Conrad, Waldorf Astoria, Park Hyatt, etc.

As it stands, I’d say the Mandarin Oriental and Shangri-La are the two best luxury properties in Taipei, though neither is really regarded as being among the top properties of either brand.

The Four Seasons Taipei should bring modern luxury to the city in a way we haven’t seen before, which is exciting. I’d also assume this will be one of the more reasonably priced city Four Seasons properties, given that Taipei just can’t sustain particularly high hotel rates (compared to Tokyo, Hong Kong, etc.).

Bottom line

The Four Seasons Taipei is being development, and construction should be complete in a few years, so I suspect this hotel will realistically open in 2027. It’s great to see Taipei getting a new luxury hotel, since the city could use some more options. Now if only a major hotel group with a points program would open a luxury property in Taiwan…

What do you make of the Four Seasons Taipei?

    Honestly Lucky, why are you allowing CCP troll posters? I get not wanting to censor much but maybe a line should be drawn at propaganda for murderous regimes with literal concentration camps

  2. Pam Thicket Guest

    There's also a big Le Meridian opening in Banqiao, New Taipei.

  3. Hido Guest

    Isn’t Taipei going to have Park Hyatt soon (as well as Andaz)?

  4. Motion to Dismiss Gold

    Interesting about the exec lounge. Would be an interesting post to do a list of all the Four Seasons properties that have one. The one in Buenos Aires does and has some wine/beer/bar snacks. I didn’t even know it existed until I checked in and was told I had access! This was last year. I had booked a room through Amex FHR but was upgraded to a suite with club access.

  5. michelle Guest

    have you been to mandarin taipei lucky? it’s absolutely gorgeous, i’d say even more than any other mandarins i’ve been at incl tokyo and hk ( and i’m usually biased towards hk!)

  6. scot r. Guest

    sadly four seasons is not the company it used to be and their properties are not so top notch anymore.

  7. Michael Fu Guest

    Also saw Park Hyatt location being developed close by the Four Seasons area in Taipei earlier this week (all close to Taipei 101 building). Should be exciting news for people who can redeem with world of Hyatt points instead of paying cold hard cash.

  8. Kelt Guest

    Hey Ben, according to Taiwanese news a year ago, the projected opening is 2025. Though optimistic, I figured to let you know. Here is the youtube link to the news. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEKIx_Iind0

  9. ANon Guest

    Park Hyatt and andaz are also under construction in the same Taipei 101 area, not very far from existing the Grand Hyatt Taipei.

  10. Pete Diamond

    I am looking forward to staying at the new Four Seasons Taipei in the nation of Taiwan.

    1. DCAss New Member

      Correction: Taiwan is not a nation. It is a province of China.

    2. Pete Diamond

      The Taiwanese nation has the best street food!

    3. David Diamond

      Taiwan is the #1 country in the world!

    4. Jkjkjk Guest

      I’d say taiwan is a province. But if you insist they’re a country then I agree they’re number 1 better than good ol murica. As long as murica is not number 1!

    5. David Diamond

      You're out of your depths. It's a meme.

  11. Matt Guest

    Meh, why spend $1000+ for the same view of the 101/cityscape? Grand Hyatt is more than adequate.

  12. NFSF Diamond

    The MO Taipei is great, with large rooms, a massive breakfast spread, and very warm service. The fact that it's quite cheap compared to many other MOs is a nice plus.

  13. Mike Guest

    There’s also a Park Hyatt being constructed in the same area, if I recall correctly. It’s sharing a new building with several other Hyatt brands.

    1. Jimmy Guest

      PH Taipei and Andaz Taipei will both be in the new building with the old Grant Hyatt Taipei just across the street.

  14. Dick Bupkiss Guest

    Lets hope they get to finish it before that fat, evil winnie-the-poo invades and blows Taiwan up.

    1. DCAss New Member

      You can’t “invade” what’s yours to begin with.

    2. Pete Diamond

      Welcome comrade. Big Xi always trolling the internet!

    3. MoJoe Diamond

      No one apart from Xi and his Chinese Communist Party cronies (which includes you, apparently) believes that.

      The argument you give (it's ours to begin with, so we're not actually invading) is basically the same one Putin is using to justify the war in Ukraine. How's that going for Russia so far, after one full year?

    4. Dick Bupkiss Guest

      So said Vladimir Putin, Adolf Hitler, and every other fascist murderer who has ever lived.

  15. David Diamond

    Looks like a top tier project with an all-star team. Architecture firm's RSHP, interior design by Yabu Pushelberg and construction by Yuanlih (responsible for One Park Taipei). It'll be in Xinyi D3, directly south of 101.

    1. FMLAX Guest

      I stayed at the Regent and can confirm it is on the same level as Waldorf Astoria, Le Meridien, etc

    2. KATA Gold

      Indeed, I'd agree with Regent being a solid option in Taipei, a lot better than the outdated Shangri-La.

  16. DCAss New Member

    Love to see another FS in China. A testament to the growth of prosperity ushered by President Xi.

    1. DCAss New Member

      Hashtag, confidently incorrect. Taiwan is an island province of China. The people, language, and culture are Chinese; as with other provinces, a Taiwanese dialect exists, as do local food specialties.

      One of the special things about the Taiwan province of China is that unlike all other provinces, US citizens don’t need a visa to enter. Go forth and pay a visit!

    2. David Diamond

      Show up with a Chinese passport and see if that gets you into Taiwan. If Taiwan is part of China please let me know where the PLA garrison is inside Taiwan.

      Nation boundaries are political, saying the people, language and culture are similar (mainland China is hardly the same as Taiwan culture) doesn't mean they're the same country, anymore than Ukraine is Russia. According to your line of reasoning, Tibet, Mongolia and etc. must not be a part of China.

    3. Pete Diamond

      These red trolls lurk around and pounce on any China or Taiwan talk with their propaganda.

    4. Jkjkjk Guest

      David, Even Taiwan government think they’re the lawful ruler of all of china meanwhile white people think they’re not china? Why you meddle in the business of Chinese people (literally)? Like always. Nosy white man who thinks they rule the world. Westerner population is so tiny if the world is democracy you westerner will be outvoted. Take care of your own crumbling backyard before meddling in a more advanced China (both the PRC and ROC).

    5. David Diamond

      Nah, ask normal Taiwanese people if they are interested in taking over mainland China. Even the ROC isn't trying to invade China, they just want to be left alone.

      Also the thing with making assumptions is it makes you look real dumb when you're wrong. 誰說我是白人?sb

    6. Winnie the Pooh Guest

      As surely as the sun rises in the east, and sets in the west, the wolf warrior mainland china parrots will spew their incoherent "Taiwan is part of China" rhetoric. Would be interesting if they ever actually did their own reading of history rather than aping Comrade Xi and his propoganda.

    7. MoJoe Diamond

      Just got back from a 5-day stay in Taipei. As you noted, US citizens don't need a visa to enter Taiwan and the street food "night markets" offer a great venue for trying tasty local food specialties (like oyster omelettes). I agree that people should pay a visit.

      One of the better street food markets (Linjiang St. Night Market) is within walking distance of the Grand Hyatt, where we stayed.

    8. Jon Wic Guest

      The island of Taiwan is governed by the Republic of China...the ROC and PRC have an unfinished civil war to settle who controls all of China, including Taiwan. You think if the ROC won the civil war and took control of the mainland, they wouldn't control both the mainland and the island of Taiwan?

    9. Troll Factory Guest

      Is the Korean war settled? Are north and south korea separate countries? When was the last shot fired in the Korean conflict vs the Chinese civil war? This isn't about the Chinese civil war from 70 years ago anymore. The fact that the two governments split over a civil war that essentially ended 70+ years ago is meaningless in your context. Taiwan is a country by all definitions of such, no matter what China and...

Taiwan is a country by all definitions of such, no matter what China and its trolls say. Sure, China could annex Taiwan at great cost if it really wished, but it doesn't change the facts.

    10. Democracy is Nice Guest

      Found the CCP troll

    11. YLi Guest

      When did Xi last step foot on Taiwan? I'll wait. He can't because it isn't China, fool. You can troll all you want but Taiwan has a democratically elected government, their own military, their own passports, and they want nothing from Xi's failed government.
