Kimpton Moves into Asia with Da An Hotel in Taipei

The artsy hotel brand is bringing its “lifestyle” concept to Taiwanese hospitality

Kimpton is making its first appearance in Asia with the Da An Hotel Taipei, a boutique hotel brand of InterContinental Hotels Group.

Kimpton Da An Hotel is in the heart of Taipei City, allowing guest easy access to cafes, boutiques, and galleries within few steps, while providing a welcoming environment decorated with local artisanal craft.

The hotel is graced with greenery and sophisticated water features, coupled with special lighting designs to set the mood for guests.

One of the highlighted services at the new property is “Morning Kick-Start”: tea and coffee served in the living room to energize and empower guests. Guests can go for early-bird programs, such as morning yoga on the rooftop. Kimpton Da An Hotel also provides several pro-active services for guests, such as sending an anticipatory email containing the happenings in Taipei to engage guests, or greeting guests based on their inferred needs, or offering in-room check-in experience.

The new property’s 129 rooms keep a theme of tranquility and provide sanctuary from Taipei’s non-stop action.

“Based on Tourism Bureau statistics, Taiwan welcomed a record 1.101 million foreign visitors in April, up 24.72 percent from a year earlier and the first time the number has exceeded 1 million,” noted Matthew Lim, General Manager of Kimpton Da An Taipei. “With our central location in the heart of Taipei, known as the ‘East District,’ our hotel is an attractive choice for visitors. The area encapsulates the wealthy, indie, local, modern and home to colorful night markets, upscale shopping areas. Therefore, we provide exclusive packages to welcome both local and international travelers.”
