The Lalu (Han Bi Lo in Chinese) was small wooden house by the Sun Moon Lake, built by a Japanese businessman in 1901. It became the Japanese Crown Prince Hirohito’s official residence in Taiwan until 1949, the Chinese Nationalist Government retreated to Taiwan, and The Lalu became President Chiang Kai-Shek’s hostel, used primarily for vacation use and to entertain foreign head of states.

For the hundred years, the Lalu has strict military control; only emperors are able to enter until in 1998, Taiwan Shining Group uncovered its mystery. Using the theory of utmost simplification of Zen style as the architectural design core from our award winning international design team, the renovation of this historical hotel began.

The Lalu Qingdao Villa

It was rebuilt from the original palace style 6 story building, saving only its beams, columns and floor and replacing everything else. The new design divides the building into three separate building (building A, B and C) for different purposes. Building A is the main guest house. Building B is the structure that houses entertainment facilities such as the Spa, gym, Jacuzzi and Members Clubhouse. Building C includes the Villa area, conference facility, Library and parking lot. On March 3, 2002, The Lalu reopened to the public with its new design and resort style.
