Capella Hotels and Resorts proudly announces the opening of Capella Taipei in the winter of 2024, poised to become an urban sanctuary in the heart of Taipei’s vibrant Dunhua North Road. Mere minutes from the 101 area, this 86-key luxurious retreat offers a unique blend of city energy and serene elegance.
At Capella, the definition of luxury transcends opulence. It is about crafting authentic and purposeful travel experiences through meaningful storytelling. The heart and soul of each destination come alive as guests immerse themselves in local culture, history, and the environment. This commitment resonates across all Capella properties, both existing and upcoming, and manifests itself in The Living Room, where guests can choose to embark on highly immersive Capella Curates journeys, meticulously organised by Capella Culturists.
Cristiano Rinaldi, President of Capella Hotel Group, says on the latest Capella opening: “We’re thrilled to unveil a new chapter of bespoke luxury in Taipei, a city that harmoniously blends cultural vibrancy with a burgeoning luxury market. Capella Taipei is not just a hotel; it’s an invitation to immerse in a culture rich in heritage and to create memories that resonate beyond a stay.”
Nestled in a location rich in cultural heritage, Capella Taipei is close to Songshan International Airport and situated near Xingtian Temple, a revered site known for its immaculate and traditional ambiance. The hotel’s proximity to vibrant art districts like Taze-Neihu, Songshan Culture Park, and Huashan 1914 Park, positions it as the epicentre of local art collections, celebrating Taipei’s status as a centre of modern art and culture.
Capella Taipei is also uniquely located near Taipei Arena, a hub of pop music and performances, adding a modern vibrancy to the area. This proximity aligns with Taipei’s leading position in Chinese music, offering guests an immersive cultural experience.
Designed as an urban retreat, Capella Taipei provides a serene escape within the city. Surrounded by lush greenery, the property – designed in consultation with the Mori Building Group from Tokyo, Japan – offers stunning views of the city and surrounding mountains, setting it apart from other hotels in Taipei.
Conceived by André Fu Studio, the hotel’s concept of a ‘modern mansion’ was birthed out of André’s personal reflection of Taipei – a modern city that juxtaposes between a world of vibrancy and poetic locality. André’s vision is defined by incorporating concepts of contemporary comforts, lifestyle entertainment, and well-being while also capturing the feeling of a retreat, all within an urban location.
Capella Taipei is a thoughtful interfusion of the hotel brand’s vision to combine tradition, discovery, individuality, and a twist of the unexpected, a present-day narrative of the capital city that it lives in, and what modern travellers are seeking. From the statement design features down to the intricate interior details, the experience delivered is highly refined, one that is infused with Fu’s signature language of relaxed luxury that is very relevant to today.
“It is a re-telling of my personal journey discovering Taipei. Flaneuring around local neighbourhoods and wandering into the lush tree-lined DunHua North Road where the hotel fondly resides, I was absorbed with the poetic environment – it captures the feeling of an escape nestled within European boulevards, a soulful atmosphere that evokes an antithesis to the urbanity one might typically perceive Taipei.” says Andre Fu.
Capella Taipei is set to be a pinnacle of culinary excellence, featuring the Grill, its main restaurant with innovative grilling, aging, and smoking techniques, offering sustainably sourced, farm-to-table produce with a French-inspired seasonal menu. The Patisserie combines an art gallery’s charm with a bakery’s warmth, serving artisanal breads, and in-house roasted coffee. Authentic Cantonese cuisine with Taiwanese influences and a premier Japanese Omakase restaurant further enhance the dining experience.
Additionally, a two-storey destination offers a vibrant mixology-focused ground floor, among other exciting bar-centric concepts to be announced soon.
Capella Wellness, located on the second floor, will focus on healing treatments inspired by traditional practices and provide Capella’s signature offerings based around the phases of the moon. Guests will have access to four treatment rooms, a fitness studio equipped with Technogym latest offerings, and an outdoor heated pool.
Meetings & Events
Capella Taipei will offer corporate facilities for meeting spaces, called the Campus, including a conference hall and two additional meeting spaces for guest’s business and functional needs. For exclusive events and celebratory milestones, the property features a private event hall and salon with its own discreet private entry.
