Silks Club Kaoshiung Review : Permier King Room

Travelling to Kaoshiung for business? 

Kaohsiung has the largest port in Taiwan and is known as the 'Maritime City' of Taiwan. Located in southern Taiwan, it is a thriving metropolis with the island's largest industrial centre. With a population size that is second to Taipei, Kaoshiung is known as a destination popular for business travellers.

The Location

In keeping with its reputation as the economic centre of Southern Taiwan, its luxury hotel segment has kept business travellers as one of the largest clientele. One such hotel that ranks among the city's most expensive and luxurious hotels is the boutique hotel - Silks Club Kaoshiung.

Located at the heart of vibrant Kaohsiung, the hotel offers easy access to the Light Rail Station and two MRT stations on Zhongshan Road. Moreover, it is adjacent to fashion department stores, Kaohsiung Exhibition Center, and the Maritime Cultural Popular Music Center, ensuring guests have all modern conveniences within reach. The hotel provides a peaceful stay, welcoming guests aged 10 and above, making it perfect for discerning business travellers.

Art Hotel

Upon entering Silks Club, guests are captivated by a mesmerizing kinetic sculpture in the lobby, reminiscent of a similar setup in Singapore's airport. 

Designed by the same artist, this sculpture features 168 metal spheres in motion. 

Throughout the hotel, subtle yet delightful artworks adorn the spaces, adding a touch of elegance and creativity to the ambience.

Check in

The front desk is located just behind the kinetic sculpture. The walls of the front desk is another interesting art piece if you look closely.

Next to the front desk is a seating area for guests to wait if necessary

The Room

Silks Club offers the Premier King room, a spacious 59 sq. meters abode for guests. 

Upon entering, one immediately feels the vastness thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows offering a breathtaking harbour view. The light wooden tones inspired by Japanese interior design create a soothing and inviting atmosphere. 

The room has a writing desk featuring a BOSE sound system for light entertainment. 

Coffee and tea machine and a minibar thoughtfully stocked with complimentary drinks, including exquisite Dassai sake, await guests. 

The room also includes a generously sized seating area with a swivel Sony Bravia smart TV, providing access to YouTube and Netflix for guests to unwind.

On the table are welcome snacks and cakes, inviting you to sit and chill before you gather yourself to prepare for the work ahead.

To ensure a restful night's sleep, the rooms are furnished with premium Italian handmade Falomo mattresses featuring a seven-stage relaxing ergonomic design and EU certification.

Despite being focused on business travelers, Silks Club spares no expense in providing an exceptionally relaxing bathroom experience. 

The Villeroy & Boch bathroom facilities, set amidst bluish-grey marble, offer a touch of class and luxury. 

Guests can enjoy breathtaking cityscape views through the large windows as they indulge in a soothing bath with bath salts provided. There is a walk-in wardrobe as well as  a separate shower and toilet. 

The Toto automatic toilet adds a premium touch to the facilities, ensuring a truly comfortable stay. 

You can tell that each room is meticulously crafted with no expenses spared for relaxation and precious downtime.


Though Silks Club is a boutique hotel, it offers ample facilities for guests' convenience. 

The swimming pool is an ideal spot to relax before heading to a business meeting, while the gym provides an opportunity to keep in shape. 

And after a long day, the sauna with an onsen provides a perfect retreat to unwind.


In Jade Lounge

For breakfast, it will be at the In Jade Lounge.

Here you will get to choose from a set specially tailored for guests. There are Taiwanese, Japanese, Western, or vegetarian sets.

I had the Japanese Set for breakfast, a healthy way to start the day.

There is also a mini buffet section with a selection of bread, salad and fruits.


The in-house restaurant, UKAI Tei, boasts a high reputation and is the first overseas venture of Japan's famed Ukai Group. 

The signature Wagyu menu is a must-try, with the Japanese Wagyu Sirloin cooked to perfection with a perfectly pink centre, offering a delicate balance between tenderness and taste. 

The meal, complemented by appetizers, seasonal seafood risotto, and dessert, is a delightful way to end the day.

Dassai Bar

To unwind in the evening, guests can head to the Dassai Bar for premium sake, providing a perfect setting for relaxation.

Alien Center

As part of the Silks Club group, visitors are recommended to explore the Alien Center, a former Kin-Ma Military Hostel transformed into an art house. 

Guests can admire impressive artworks by the group's founder, Yungtien Shao, and CEO Yaman Shao.

 While there, visitors can enjoy light snacks at the Alien Cafe and chill in its relaxing ambience.


Silks Club Kaohsiung is not just a business traveller hotel; it has all the makings of a romantic spot for couples visiting Kaohsiung as well. 

The hotel offers a luxurious experience, making it an excellent choice for travellers seeking comfort, elegance, and convenience while staying in this vibrant city.
