Perfect place for a quiet and relaxing stop over in the East Rift Valley. Highlights are the Hot Spring water bathtubs in each room, balconies facing the mountains, very good dinner and breakfast, and hospitality of the staff. Ruisui likely will undergo some transition as a huge hotel complex is built right now, site is far away from the Silence Manor. The Silence Manor offers an outdoor pool and a huge garden. We can recommend The hotel and village without hesitation for an stop over (we would have loved to stay another day).
Very quiet place amidst the greeneries. I am not sure if there is transport provided as I had my driver who brought us to the minsu.
There were bikes for us to ride around the grounds. There was a children's pool right out at the yard. They had a pool on 3rd floor. The rooms were nicely designed with ensuite bathroom. Star feature: Onsen tub.
The 2D1N package came with breakfast for two, with a choice of either western or Chinese set. My partner n i both took the western set.
We had a restful stay at Silence Manor. Service was excellent. The amenities were well thought out. Only gripe was there weren't really anything beyond the manor (probably due to its location). A languid getaway suitable for travelers with unplanned itinerary.
But I am afraid it did not get so silent when we arrived at the end of September. The hotel is beautifully located in a green high valley surrounded by mountains and quite isolated. I would have loved to spend a lot more time there. - The rooms and beds are comfortable and you have all the amenities. Apart from the bathroom we also had terrasses with small pools with hot and cold spring water. The lay-out of the manor is nice and open-spaced with a large outdoor pool, comfortable sitting areas and a gazebo. - The food (included) was very good, I especially remember the dinners. - Had I been on my own I would very much recommend this as a place for meditation and retreat, but that will have to be next time perhaps. - The Silence Manor and the lovely, attentive staff are highly recommended by me, be it on your own or in company.
We had a very wonderful vacation here. First day afternoon they picked up us from Mizuho train station and the service is for free. A memorable moment when we opened the room door, there was some essential oil in a little pottery; every conner in the room we smelled an aroma.
Just only eight rooms in manor, so few people there that we enjoyed a very quiet and high quality trip. Also the meals was delicious and on the spot; we dined at a nice atmosphere dining room, the glass walls around besides a swimming pool, a pavilion, and views as far as eye can see outside.
We soaked in hot spring in our room and the water belongs to the weakly alkaline carbonate spring of chloride; when Fe in contact with air to form water muddy color crystals and a slight smell of rust, called "hot spring fowlers".
I stayed many B&B and hotels, but I always couldn't fall asleep even I was exhausted; this is first time I'm really relax to got a fully rest.
At last I got a cute manor postcard and sent myself.
I was staying at the Silence Manor for a night with my family. Best described as a boutique luxury villa, the Silence Manor has a small outdoor unchlorinated pool - so don't be surprised to see some tadpoles swimming in them - an eco-garden surrounded by small acreages of local farmland and onsen in the rooms as well as the rooftop. It's a fantastic place for unwinding and relaxation. We were pleasantly surprised by a rare tea serving comprising of hand-made pastries and desserts upon our arrival, a 4-course dinner and a beautiful breakfast. The toilet is huge with a view of the surrounding mountains, and the toiletries were from Hermes. The door has a belt of glass built into it - presumably to allow the guest to constantly view the marvelous outdoor - which can compromise privacy when someone is using the bathroom. It's not a problem if you are on honeymoon but can be awkward if you are with family. Nevertheless, all considered, Silence Manor has superb value and certainly a not-to-be-missed lodging if you are passing through eastern Taiwan.
