Our stay at Leofoo Resort Guanshi in Taiwan December 19 2019, 0 Comments
We heard so much wonderful sharings from friends & family and decided to book a stay during our recent Taiwan vacation.
Checked-in time was at 15:00 hrs but thankful our room was ready at about 14:00hrs when we arrived. We had a 2D1N stay from 3 Dec - 4 Dec. At the counter, the lady asked if we brought our own toothbrush & slippers. I was puzzled, and she explained that this is a eco-friendly resort hence if you do not need the items, they will reward you with NT$50 voucher per pax. This voucher can be use for paid activities in the resort. I am happy with the initiative & got my vouchers for 5 pax, thats extra NT250 to spend :)
The rooms are house on 2 sides - Zebra cottage & Giraffe cottage. I choose the Giraffe cottage as I wanted to see the animals outside my balcony. The Zebra side couldn’t really see the animals. Good choice!
balcony view from our room
Great experience waking up to animals outside our resort room!!
We had a double storey room to fit 5 of us. 2 individual toilets & 2 showers made it so convenient.
Phew, the room has no smell but I could hear the flamingos chatting at night! So funny 😆
shower & toilet are detached to make it convenient
Father in law joined us, so he took the bed below while our family took the 2 beds upstairs.
The whole resort is decorated with animals, safari themed.
Other than the animals as the main highlight, the resort also has other DIY craft activities in-house for children to enjoy. It is house in another building which is 5 mins walk away. Open from 9am - 9pm, you can walk in anytime to reserve your spot.
Sophie painted a Maraca, which is a hand instrument. It cost NT399/person but we offset with our NT250 vouchers we receive earlier.
There were only a few choices for food in the resort, hence we settled for the international buffet.
Oh, they love the staircase, because its like a 2 story house.
The room came with a pack of cute cookies which was my night snack.
(did not buy anything)
DAY 2 (AM):
I woke up early to "say hello" to the animals outside our hotel. I was hoping to see the giraffe pop its head near our balcony as shown on the website but nope, it did not happen. I was disappointed that I could not spot any giraffe and even called the front desk to ask where is the giraffe! hahhaa. Due to the cold weather, the giraffe was hiding inside & will be release at a later time.
Buffet Breakfast to fuel our tummies 1st.
After breakfast, we made our way to the Scenic Lookout to listen to 'Introduction to Animals in the Resort' sharing
In-house staff explaining to us the characteristics of the animals.
The other highlight of the resort stay were the close animal experience activities.
Some were paid, some were free. I had my chance to hold a parrot! (It’s free)
Sophie is brave enough to stand beside it for photo only.
You are allowed to feed the parrots too
Glad we discovered the other side of the resort where other animals were housed. Say hello to Giraffe, Zebra, Goat, Lemur, etc. The siblings were so excited for these encounters 😉 No crowd so we happily enjoyed the animals all to ourselves. 😍
I really love this shot, 1st time going SO close to a giraffe
The kids with their sad face as they bid farewell to the resort.
