    Inside what used to be President Chiang Kai-shek’s official guesthouse on the southernmost tip of Taiwan, Gloria Manor offers an eco-conscious retreat amid the verdant landscape of Kenting National Park. The newly renovated hotel was originally built in 1958 as the management center of the country’s Forestry Bureau—hence its privileged location—and is now an environmentally conscious work of bright-white modernism that plays host to such indulgences as Mu Restaurant and Mu Lounge, which tempt guests with contemporary Taiwanese cuisine, handcrafted cocktails, and views of Dajian Mountain. Its setting between a mountain and a beach also ensures guests endless opportunities for exploration, while an outdoor pool and a therapeutic yoga program allows one to bask in Taiwan’s natural beauty. With minimalistic interiors of local bamboo, marble, and other sustainable materials, Gloria Manor is both an escape for design-conscious travelers and a go-to destination for corporate affairs thanks to its well-equipped conference space for up to 150 people. The concierge team also encourages guests to discover as much of Taiwan’s unique landscape as possible by arranging nature excursions on request.

    John Chen

    John Chen studied mathematics at university. After spending some years teaching math in the U.S. and working as an investment banker there, he returned to Taiwan and became the CEO of Gloria Hotel Group. While Hotel Proverbs Taipei marks the group’s third boutique property in the city, Chen also became an influential figure in the retail industry here, having campaigned for Taiwan’s first international outdoor outlet shopping mall. Far away from the bustle of the Taipei, Chen’s Gloria Manor hotel is an eco-conscious retreat nestled in the lush landscape of Kenting National Park on the southernmost tip of the island.
