The spa is located on the 40th floor, with a HUGE spa menu and treatment rooms that have a birds-eye view of the lovely Taipei skyline. Their state-of-the-art health club has something for everyone, including fun and challenging classes ranging from yoga, Tai Chi, spinning, advanced muscle relief, and straight up physical fitness classes.

I love Taipei and would find it hard to stay anywhere with limited dining options or lacking a view of the iconic Taipei 101. The Shangri-La hotel brand never disappoints and an evening spent at the Marco Polo Lounge will certainly be a memory you carry with you long after you’ve departed.
