Fennel Hot Spring Resort in Kaoh Siung Review

Fennel Hot Spring Resort

The journey from Kaoh Siung 高雄 was long as it took about 2 hours to reach 車城站 by bus. It was another 10 mins of car ride or 45 mins walking distance to reach Fennel Hot Spring Resort.  

Sichong river Hot Spring Area is located at Checheng Township in Pingtung County. The water here is Sodium Bicarbonate spring, excellent quality mineral water. The Sihjhongsi Hot Spring is considered one of the four major hot-spring areas among Taiwan. Along with Yangmingshan, Beitou, and Guanziling.

There were 2 spring options to pick from:

The semi outdoor naked spa is more private and does not require you to wear swimsuit and swimming cap. It comprises of Cold Spring Pool, Hot Spring Pool and Medium Hot Pool, costing NT$200 per person.

For the Health Spa Love Sea Water Therapy Spa, I was required to purchase a swimsuit and swimming cap since I did not bring mine. It comprises of Hot Spring Spa, Spa for Children, Floral Hot Spring, Herb Hot Spring, Garra Rufa Obtuse, Cold Spring Pool, Hot Spring Pool, Medium Hot Pool and Steam Room. It cost NT$300 per person.

Garra Rufa Obtuse is basically a tiny fishpond where you dip your feet. There were many of these little fishes would start nibbling the dead skin off your feet. These fishes will automatically come to your feet once you place them in.

Lockers available at a cost of NT$10 to place your belongings and their toilets have soap and shampoo as well. It was a relaxing experience since my feet were tired from cycling to the end (cargo area) of Cijin. The distance sure was crazy…. definitely CRAZY in a foreign land. Not forgetting walking over 30km each day.
There were many cute little kids playing around, more like a family orientated Hot Spring Resort. I find the place was not exactly well maintained since there were faulty activation buttons. The entrance fees was only NT$300 for unlimited time and I probably spend about 3-4 hours in there. Hmmm maybe more hot spring and spa posts in future?
