W Taipei

Jan 21, 2012

THE SPLASHY W TAIPEI BLENDS the feel of a relaxing resort with a smooth, urban vibe. Guests can wind down at the 25-meter-long pool and poolside Wet Bar, or rub elbows with the city’s power brokers at Yen, the top-floor Cantonese restaurant with views onto Taipei 101. The 405 spacious rooms feature plush beds, energetic green and orange accents, sturdy business desks, sofas perched next to floor-to-ceiling windows, Japanese toilets, spacious bathtubs, iPod docks and Bose stereos. In step with the W brand, whimsical art pieces punctuate the hotel, including flying metal shards in the lobby by Japanese artist Sawada.

Taihu Brewing Taiwan

Taihu might be Asia’s most progressive brewery. The bathrooms are gender neutral, for starters, and when it comes to beer, head brewer Winnie Hsu is as relentless in her devotion to quality as she is in her rejection of traditional boundaries.
