Zhaori Hot Spring



Zhaori Hot Spring was initially called Asahi Hot Spring during Japanese Colonial Period (189-1945). A bath in the morning in this only hot spring on the ocean floor in Taiwan guarantees a magnificent sunrise view,because it faces the Pacific Ocean. In addition to three outdoor hot springs near the ocean,there are five terrace-like hot springs of hot water and lukewarm water at Zhaori Hot Spring. There are also indoor hot spring spas with excellent facilities,making hot spring bathing enjoyable even on rainy days.

    Desperately needs some refurbishment

    Fantastic surroundings overlooking the ocean - and one of only three thermal hot springs in the world so such a shame to see it in a bad state. Several parts were closed (told to stay away by grumpy staff who sat together in orange t shirts and did nothing). The surface both outside and inside the pools is crumbling (bring flip flops) and the shower/changing area reminded me of municipal baths in the UK in the 70s (damp/wet/decaying). It's very cheap to get in (free for islanders) but I would have paid more for a better experience. Ps you need to bring a swim cap.

    It is rustic by North American standards. I didn’t find it to be dirty. The pools were clean. I liked watching the surf of the ocean while sitting in the hot spring. Nice view while I soaked.

    I read the earlier reviews and was a little nervous, but once I arrived I was pleasantly surprised. Even though I don’t speak the language I was able to figure things out. The view was amazing and the sounds of the crashing waves was relaxing. It wasn’t busy when we were there but I can imagine this place would be crazy on a busy day. The washrooms were ok nothing fancy and on the men’s side I couldn’t find a single hook to hang my bag on while I changed, but there is a shelf in each stall. I would recommend visiting this place while on the island.

    Nice soak in varying degrees of water. Awesome view but not much in way of food or drinks. Worth the visit tho

    Nice view but very dirty

    Traveler rating:1 2017-11

    Nice view but outdoor pool is cold not hot spring. The indoor hot spring is crowded and turbid. The toilet is smelly and the shower is dirty. No locker available, no towel provided. Impolite staffs. Basically not a good experience and not recommend.
