>About Us


Amanda Hotel is located at the heart of the Hengchun Peninsula. We are 10 minutes’ walk from South Bay (Nanwan), the hub of water activities; and within 15 minutes’ drive from major attractions, such as Kenting Forest Recreation Area, Kenting Street (Kenting Night Market), Houbihu Harbour (Fresh seafood), and Hengchun Old Streets and Gates. Within 30 minutes’ drive, the visitors can reach National Museum of Marine Biology & Aquarium, Shuchunghsi Hot-Spring, the Lighthouse Park (Eluanbi Park), and Jialeshuei (Surfing festival). Amanda Hotel may well be the centre of your holiday plan to explore Kenting’s beautiful nature and play popular water and land-based activities.

With a coastline of 70 km, Kenting boasts a rich variety of oceanic landforms such as coral reefs and sandy beaches. Early on, the Kenting Forest Recreation Area was renowned among the Taiwanese population; in the 1960s surfing was introduced by the US Army stationed nearby and popular ever since; the Kenting Night Market was also there assembled by a number of souvenir stalls along a nearby street. In 1982 Taiwan’s first national park was established in Kenting and including a large part of the Hengchun Peninsula’s scenic and fun spots. Along with the national park’s growth, new attractions were founded and activities invented. Spring Scream Music Festival started in 1995; National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium opened on Feb 25, 2000; in 2006 Kenting International Surfing Competition kicked off; and the night market is now packed with tourists the whole year. The Kenting National Park attracts hundreds of thousands of holiday-makers inland and overseas every year.
At a close range from Kenting’s major tourist spots, we endeavour to introduce the best of Kenting to our guests. Information in relation to transportation, tourist attractions, water activities, popular events, and local delicacy, is available on Amanda’s website, by telephone, and through messaging apps. When requested, we may book the above services on our guest's behalf, though the guests will have to contact the business by themselves in the end.
