During summer people tend to flee the
jam-packed cities and plan a vacation in the Kenting
area. There's a peaceful and undisturbed place called
Ipanema Surf house, only three minutes from Baisha beach,
which is worth a try. With exotic interior designs and
choreographed decoration, the whole hostel reveals a
Caribbean, Tropical, Latin Country Style. While staying
here, you have full use of their Brazilian BBQ, swimming
pool (with outdoor showering), hammocks and free internet.
Currently it has two big rooms (the Brazil room for
up to seven people, and the Costa Rica room for up to
four people) and a Hawaiian attic that sleeps three.
This fantastic hostel provides air-conditioning, while
maintaining a per person charge of only NT$350 a night.
The owner is a Brazilian-Taiwanese surfer with great
hospitality, ensuring every traveler has lots of fun
and is made to feel like they are staying at home. The
next time you visit the area don't forget to stop by
this hostel, which encourages you to linger without
any thought of leaving.
