History of the resort

Former site of the Chiang Kai-Shek Guesthouse Embraces the panoramic view of the Sun Moon Lake
The Chiang Kai-Shek Guesthouse was a two storey wooden house constructed in 1901. It used to be the accommodation for the Emperor of Japan in Taiwan, and was changed to the Chiang Kai-Shek Guesthouse after the restoration. However, the actual Chiang Kai-Shek Guesthouse was completely ruined after the 921 earthquake.
The Chiang Kai-Shek Guesthouse was surrounded by the lake on three sides, and when looking down from the guesthouse, the lush mountains, the sweeping lakeside and the azure waters of the Sun Moon Lake formed a beautiful painting. The Wen Wan Resort Sun Moon Lake was constructed on the original location of the Chiang Kai-Shek Guesthouse, and inherited the scenery-embracing space concept of the former Chiang Kai-Shek Guesthouse to introduce to the public with a brand new appearance.
Adjacent to the Double Lake  The unrivaled glory

The Wen Wan Resort Sun Moon Lake is located at the highest point of Hanbi Peninsula, and the former site for the resort was the renowned accommodation for Mr. Chiang Kai-Shek. Being in the resort and looking down at Sun Moon Lake is a pleasing, body and mind refreshing experience; furthermore, the scenery varies with the different seasons and times, hence this ideal and irreplaceable geological location became the new index for premium holiday resorts. In 2006, the Tuckmore Group announced to build and manage the premium Wen Wan Resort Sun Moon Lake with an investment of two billion dollars. With almost four years of preparation, and persistence with an extremely professional attitude, the all-encompassing audio, visual and sensual enjoyment, facilities as well as service quality are presented to every guest paying a visit here.

Ultimate scenery by the lakeside  The best of Sun Moon Lake

The scenery of Sun Moon Lake is the best in Taiwan, and the views of the resort are the best around Sun Moon Lake.

The space inherited the penetrative concept of embracing the scenery from the former Chiang Kai-Shek Guesthouse, and largely applied transparent glass screen and rods, which complement with the magnificent landscapes of the Earth. The transparent and clear appearance with the LED lighting decorations mounting to over 40 million dollars light up the lake scenery within the darkness, and ingeniously integrated nature into technology, with the simple and well-executed geometrical lines to create a modern sentiment of nature. Small yachts pass by with continuous surprising praise from the tourists, and The Wen Wan Resort Sun Moon Lake has thus left a deep and grand impression on people’s hearts.
Utmost hospitality – The truth of accommodation

Preface to the Prince of Teng's Pavilion – Everything has its essence and treasure is within the universe, while the rays from the Dragon sword shines directly in between the Dipper and Ox constellations; a place propitious for giving birth to great men, where Chen Xu laid a bed for Xu Ru. Chen Xu was the head of Yuzhang Prefecture (currently Jiangxi) in the Han Dynasty. Xu Ru was the man of insight in the region with broad knowledge. Chen Xu doesn’t normally receive guests, but he was respectful for Xu Ru’s character and knowledge, thus whenever Xu Ru came to visit, he would offer warm hospitality and lay the bed for Xu Ru personally. They both respect each other, and the incident became a good saying, hence laying bed became a respectful name for guests’ accommodation. Now, The Wen Wan Resort Sun Moon Lake applies the same attitude and emotions to offer utmost hospitality, with each layer further closer to your heart, so as to invite you to experience for yourself, and to breath with us.

Admire the pines  Listen to the cicadas  Attached to the scent of flowers

Strolling around the resort, you will see century old pines with heights above ten meters; this species has accompanied the resort for over 120 years since the Japanese came to Taiwan to explore Shueishalian, and then the former president Chiang Kai-Shek admired the pines while thinking about the national matters. One can only realize the strength of pines in the cold winter, as they are always the last to wilt, the characteristic of pines not afraid of winters was used by Confucius to describe a man’s dignity, which is one of the characteristics of The Wen Wan Resort Sun Moon Lake. When summer arrives, the cicadas are always the first to make noises, and this is the most abundant sound of nature bestowed to The Wen Wan Resort Sun Moon Lake by God. Everything appears leisurely when one listens to the bugs and birds, breathes the fresh air, and wanders in the natural garden landscapes designed by masters!
