Halal Hotels Taipei
According to Taipei City-based Chinese Muslim Association, Taiwan is home to between 50,000 and 60,000 permanent Muslim residents, or less than 0.3 percent of the total population of 23 million.
By Crescent Rating, Taiwan is 33rd rated among most Muslim-friendly countries.
How many mosques are there in Taiwan?
As of 2018, there are eleven mosques in Taiwan, with the most notable being the Taipei Grand Mosque, the oldest and largest one.
Like other tourists, Muslim travelers coming from Islamic countries have particular requirements when they choose the destination for their vacation. Among these requirements, Muslims are concerned about the availability of halal compliant foods (no pork or alcohol in food) and a clean place to pray.
Many international hotels in Taiwan do serve halal food that is slaughtered in accordance with the teachings of Islamic Sharia and is free of any substances forbidden by Islam such as pork and alcohol.
Other Islamic countries such as Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Oman and Brunei continue to be popular with Muslim tourists. Among non-OIC countries, Singapore, Thailand, the UK, Japan and Taiwan remain the top five respectively, but show improved scores on the index.

Taipei No. 1 Muslim Friendly Hotel
The location of the hotel is excellent, although it is 5-10 mins walk from the closest MRT, we can easily get around by buses just in front of the hotel.
The room is big, new and modern, love their bathroom design. Very generous room service free drinks and snacks provided in the room. Very good semi buffet breakfast. And their food is halal.
The room was great, with a huge comfortable bed dressed with crisp white linen, a good sized TV with international stations and free movies, a practical desk with outlets and space to put things.
The room was a good size for the price and had a comfortable easy chair and another chair at the desk. The bathroom was another large space and had everything you could need including one of those hi-tech automated toilet. In a separate glassed in area was a large shower and soaking tub with a big window to the street that luckily has a block out shade.
One feature was a free smartphone that they provide in each room which is totally free to use for phone calls local and international, internet and all the other things a smartphone can do which is very handy as I usually get a local SIM card when I travel but for a few days in Taipei I wasn’t going to bother.
Breakfast was included in my rate and taken on the first floor and was ok and as expected had more Asian than western options and provided enough to start the day and given that I didn’t leave the hotel until around 10.30am each day I was there was welcome and avoided the need to try and find something in the for breakfast in the area.

Beautiful room and surroundings, but got no wifi if you’re staying in the cottage-like room.
This is one of the best resort hotels I have stayed…..serene surroundings covered with trees, ponds,plants and vegetable sheds. Taking a walk around the hotel before breakfast was breathe taking with fresh air and awesome views.It was like walking in a tropical forest. Breakfast which was included in the room rate had a wide spread ( mostly Taiwanese dishes) and the taste was Ok.The well furnished room was clean and spacious. We opted for a room with hot spring pools. It was a memorable experience being able to soak in a hot spring pool in the privacy of your hotel room. It was worth the extra paid for the hot spring room.Service by staff was friendly and their comprehension of English passable.
As there are many activities organized in the hotel surrounding,this is an ideal place to relax and rejuvenate.
There are no 7/11 or convenience shops around the hotel and I recommend you purchase all your supplies in Puli ( the nearest town) before checking in.
