Before setting foot inside the hotel, guests are struck by the building’s minimalism, textural richness, and pristine marble.

Inside, the bamboo artwork on the lobby ceiling is a reflection of both local materials and crafting heritage, and is beautifully contrasted by geometric floor patterns and minimalistic furnishings. Pure, clean spaces abound, while eco-friendly paint and expansive windows keeps the hotel’s natural surroundings at the forefront.

Architecture J.J. Pan and Partners

Built in 1958 and originally used by the Taiwanese Forestry Bureau and then as one of President Chiang Kai-shek’s guesthouses...

the building that’s home to Gloria Manor is one of modernistic elegance surrounded by some of Taiwan’s most breathtaking forestland. With the environment in mind, the architects installed such technologies as solar panels and a natural water recycling system, as well as designing the building in a way that enhances natural ventilation.
