Accommodation & Food in Kenting

Fresh tropical fishSome Kenting hotels operate shuttle-bus services for guests coming via Kaohsiung’s airport and high-speed railway station, solving in a single stroke the question of how to get to the resort.

Chateau Beach Resort

With an unbeatable beachside location, good in-house eating options, free use of kayaks and other water-sports equipment for guests, it’s no surprise the 293-room Chateau is many regular visitors’ favourite. In addition to the stretch of sandy beach right on the hotel’s doorstep, there are three swimming pools for kids and a deep pool for adults.

Kenting Caesar Park

The most up-market of the region’s larger hotels, Kenting Caesar Park has direct access to Xiaowan Beach via a pedestrian tunnel. In addition to rooms of various sizes, the Caesar has a small number of villas (two master bedrooms and one Japanese-style tatami room in each) set in its lovely grounds. These are ideal for extended families. So parents can have some relaxing time to themselves, the hotel’s Kids Club organises safe, fun activities, although youngsters who don’t speak any Chinese may sometimes feel left out.

Gloria Manor

Developed around a forestry management office that Chiang Kai-shek requisitioned for his personal use, Glory Manor is now a highly-rated 171-room luxury establishment situated back from and above the busiest part of Kenting. The outdoor swimming pool is large by Taiwan standards, and there’s a range of options that include breakfast and, if you want it, dinner.

Feng Tsai Yi Sui Guesthouse

Throughout Taiwan there are dozens of excellent homestays which don’t advertise themselves in English, simply because they’ve no need to. In Kenting, Feng Tsai Yi Sui falls into this category. Less than 150m inland of the main road – meaning it’s quiet at night yet not remote – and within strolling distance of the restaurants facing Chuanfan Rock, the guesthouse’s two- and four-person rooms are decorated in Mediterranean-meets-Asia style.

Kenting Wine & Dine

Thanks to the thousands of holidaymakers who descend on Kenting each weekend, the resort has a restaurant-nightlife scene that rivals Taiwan’s larger cities. Everything from pizzas to Mexican food (Smokey Joe’s is a Kenting landmark) to spicy Thai cuisine (Mambo has been in business for more than two decades) and Taiwanese-style seafood (Inside The Alley Seafood is a longstanding and perenially popular option) is available along the main road. During peak season, it makes sense to eat on the early side to beat the crowds. Those trying to get a table at a popular eatery after seven o’clock may find themselves waiting outside if they haven’t made a reservation. There’s always the night market — while it’s not, according to foodies, Taiwan’s best after-dark bazaar, you won’t go hungry. Or thirsty: Some vendors specialise in craft beers and cocktails!
