Hoya Resort Kaohsiung Review - Kaohsiung Kids Friendly Accommodation

For the first two nights of our stay in Kaohsiung, we stayed in Hoya Resort Kaohsiung due to its proximity to the airport.
Since we will be here for only two nights, we decided to pick an accommodation which is kids-friendly, read includes slide and bathtub, and accessible for us to explore the South part of Kaohsiung without wasting too much time on travelling.

Hoya Resort Kaohsiung fits the bill entirely! Additional bonus: a bustling night market just below the hotel! We had dinner there twice in a row.

Hoya Resort Kaohsiung is definitely a hotel created for families. They have kids play area downstairs and tamiya car racing activities at selected timing.
Kids-sized bedroom slippers were also provided in the Hoya Fun Suit we were in.

The only downside is that you can't select the type of room you wanted, we initially wanted the pirate themed room which is the most popular room at Hoya Resort Kaohsiung but it was occupied by another guest here for a weekend stay.

Luckily, the Animals room with a bunk bed was assigned to us, say yeah to plenty of bed space! This room comfortably sleeps up to 6. The bunk bed is at least a queen size and above.

Pricing wise was reasonable for the no. of pax it can accommodate but not cheap by Kaohsiung standards. One night for the weekend rate cost about $270 per night inclusive of breakfast.

Check out the large beds..

The room is HUGE and I mean really really huge. There's a king-sized bed in the room near where the bunk bed is. Each of the adults had the luxury of sleeping on one bed each for the past two nights.
There's also a study table, sofa and coffee table at the other corner of the room which I conveniently forgot to take a photo of.

In fact, not just the room is huge, the bathroom is humongous as well. the bathroom alone is bigger than our BTO bedrooms like serious!

See how kids friendly Hoya Resort Kaohsiung is - they provide kids toiletries in the bathroom as well

That's for the adults

How thoughtful, a lower sink for children. Makes access to the basin such a breeze.
Do this gives you a vague idea of how huge the bathroom really is?

Cute mosaic design just by the bath tub. As usual, kids shampoo and shower gel were provided as well.

Right on the other end of the bathroom sites the king throne and standing shower. Due to the size of the bathroom, one literally need to run from one end of the bathroom to the other end for a good soak in the tub after a shower.

A pano shot, yes definitely bigger than the bedrooms from a BTO flat.

Peek-a-boo a hiding place for the little one. the room is just like a massive playground for her

Alrightey enough of the room, let's take a look at the other facilities at Hoya Resort Kaohsiung

Free flow of snacks and coffee at the snack bar

This is where the kids play area is

A good place to dump the kids while you're busy settling your check-in

It sure get pretty crowded on weekend mornings at the Tamiya Car racing area

Sticky Bean finally get her hands on it!

Some other display, there supposedly was some demonstration, I figured it must be something similar to having the trains move around the racks like LEGO Land.

Review of Hoya Resort Kaohsiung
5/5 !
  1. Proximity to the exciting, a large Youth Night Market (literally just downstairs)
  2. Walking distance to LRT (5 minutes walk)
  3. Huge kids friendly room
  4. Kids activities and play area availability
  5. Decent breakfast spread
I will highly recommend Hoya Resort Kaohsiung to everyone especially if you're staying for just 2-3 nights.

Taiwan Kids friendly Accommodation with slides - not your usual list!

And so from a mere idea of bringing Sticky Bean with us to Taiwan, this idea was put into action with Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promotion where you get to pay only $70 for a child's ticket! Though it's not exactly the cheapest option for flying to Taiwan, we thought to pay a little more for better service and not to mention safety since it will be Sticky Bean's first time traveling on a relatively longer flight. Her first plane ride was a really short one to KL, a mere 1 hour away. If she's manageable on the flight, we can then consider budget airlines such as Scoot or even Jetstar for our subsequent travels. So why Taiwan? There are plenty of reasons for our choice other than both Mr. Keir and myself love Taiwan for the food and hospitality. I'm sure you may have come across Awesome kids friendly accommodation with slides and other themed rooms in Taiwan that are trending in facebook. That was one of the many reasons why we want to go Taiwan too!

BTO Keys Collection and BTO Door Opening Ceremony

And so after a long 4 years wait, our BTO is finally ready for keys collection. To be honest we totally forgot about out BTO and was pleasantly surprised to receive an SMS from HDB to inform us of our BTO keys collection date. That was when we frantically tried to hunt for an ID. Ok to cut the story short, here's what happened on the BTO keys collection day as well as what we did for our "BTO Door Opening Ceremony". There really wasn't an official BTO door opening ritual or ceremony in fengshui. I guess this is just a Singapore custom. Though we do not have a religion, in particular, we just did it for an ease of mind. Love the  living room view from our 30th storey BTO view from our Service Yard BTO Key Collection Process at HDB Time took: less than an hour It was a very straightforward and easy process. Here's what you need to prepare, assuming that you are taking the loan from HDB. Identity cards Marriage certificate if you are buying

Our 7 Day 6 Nights Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary Preview

Here's a preview of our Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary for our trip to Taiwan earlier this month in May 2017. You can click on the respective days for a detailed post. And so we finally embarked on our journey to Taiwan onboard Singapore Airlines! Thanks to Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promo, we decided to splurge a little on the air tickets. The air tickets cost about $1,440 for 2 adults and 1 3.5 yr old. We spent a total of 7 days 6 nights in Taiwan altogether. But in order to make our Taiwan trip more child-friendly, relaxing,  and to cut down on travelling time, we merely visited the North part of Taiwan primarily - Hsinchu, Yilan and Taipei. It's never easy travelling with a young one, hence we should not be too ambitious when it comes to planning your Taiwan Child Friendly itinerary. Good thing is,  Mr  Keir and I have always preferred a chillax itinerary. We're not the type of tourist who loves to jam pack the full day and visit 101 attracti
