Love Motels In Kaohsiung- The Best of The Rest

Here in Taiwan, fancy motels are a big business. In recent years, as more and more of these luxurious locales have opened, it seems a sort of competition has sprung up among proprietors; they want to discover who can provide the greatest variety of services in the most elegant surroundings. Room sizes vary from about 10 pings to 80 pings; at the most luxurious, some of these suites are even 120 pings--they're what the business refers to as "six-star."

Owners decorate their rooms with romance and elegance, glamour, even underwater themes. They create city villas and pack in super modern amenities and extras like king-sized beds, Nintendo Wiis, fancy shower heads, spas, saunas, milk baths, private outdoor swimming pools and courtyards with waterfalls, the list goes on and on. And whenever guests get tired and hungry from swimming, spa-ing, and playing video games, room service is just a phone call away. So here they are, a sampling of what the city has to offer--Kaohsiung's luxury motels.

Eden Exoticism is beyond a boutique motel. Their rooms provide a unique opportunity to travel the world in exotic styles and tastes. Many are themed around well known vacation spots, such as the Bali Island, Mediterranean and Nederland rooms, while others lend themselves towards erotic role-playing, as the Devil's Island, Seduction and Batman rooms do. All rooms have a large swivel-mounted flat-screen TV, Jacuzzi with TV, and completely private balcony. Massage chairs and divans are relaxing and come complete with a copy of the Kama-Sutra. Room service offers a large selection of food and massage aids. The staff is discreet and friendly; check in and drive directly into your room's private garage without leaving your vehicle. Weekly rates are cheaper; you can rent the room for a night (NT$2,900-5,500), or just two or three hours (NT$900-2,200) of relaxation. Some Chinese ability would be an asset as the Motel's rates and amenities are all listed in Chinese. --Text and photos by Colin Brown, translated by Ann Lee
