Flying with EVA Air and checking into the Grand Hyatt Taipei

Business class on EVA Air

So last weekend, I flew on EVA Air to Taiwan for a sort of mini-break, if you can call a weekend at the Grand Hyatt Taipei, Taipei's grandest luxury hotel and a few days at the best spa in Taiwan a mini-break.

A GREAT FLIGHT ON EVA AIR

It's really great flying with EVA Air and checking into the Grand Hyatt Taipei.

It started out very nicely with a 90-minute flight on EVA Air from Manila, which incidentally is one of my favourite airlines. I'm very picky about airlines since I spend so much time on planes, and I still have to find something to complain about on my flights on EVA Air's new airplanes.

The short flight from Manila to Taiwan on business class on the new airplanes are on complete flat beds with spacious cubicles, with great entertainment, good food and impeccable service.

The EVA AIR onboard service in particular stands out as all the stewardesses are smiling, polite and truly so helpful. This must be a Taiwanese national trait.

Then, landing at Taoyuan International Airport, immigrations went smoothly and the stretch BMW 7 series of the Grand Hyatt Taipei was waiting at the driveway to take me to the hotel, my home for the weekend.

It had all the usual amenities for a limo, and the WiFi in the car was really fast so I worked all the way to the hotel so that I would not have to do so upon reaching the Grand Hyatt Taipei.

Grace Lai, VIP Services Manager of the Grand Hyatt Taipei, was waiting at the hotel driveway too, and we went straight up from the car to the 24th floor to the pretty amazing suite that we had booked for a mini-break.


A GREAT SUITE AT THE GRAND HYATT TAIPEI

It was a rectangular suite with views for the entire length of the suite. In terms of layout, it was fantastic because the bedroom and the master bath were at one end.

Then the butler's kitchen and the dining room for six were at the other end, with a living room and a study in the middle.

And right outside us was a fantastic view of Taipei 101. What more could we ask for at the Grand Hyatt Taipei for a long weekend, living a #Travelife.
