The W comes to Taipei

Wild on Taipei

Opening auspiciously on Valentine’s Day 2011, the W Taipei (10 Zhongxiao East Rd. Sec. 5, Xinyi District, Taipei; 886-2/7703-8888; starwood.com/whotels) continues the tradition of the W brand with hip luxury and youthful fascination in Taiwan’s vibrant capital.

In the center of the eclectic Xinyi District, Taipei’s main commercial zone, W Taipei complements and enhances the nonstop vim and vigor of the area. If it’s decadent indulgences you crave, that’s their specialty. From the comforts of the cozy Living Room with stylish spaces to mix and mingle, to delectable local cuisine at their Yen Chinese Restaurant and sexy cocktails at three different bars: the Woobar, the poolside Bar at WET and the Bar at Yen, decadent indulgences get dished out by the shovelful.

The rooms are masterpieces of super-modern design and style, and all include the signature W bed and W pillow menu, while the “Bliss® sinkside six” is a fine treat in the bathroom. Staying fit at the W is a fun experience in itself with the WET pool, the SWEAT fitness center and AWAY spa.
