Capella Taipei to Debut in Winter 2024

Urban retreat designed by Andre Fu studio reflects the city's blend of tradition and contemporary energy.

Taipei’s accommodation scene is about to get a significant boost with the announcement of Capella Taipei, slated for opening in winter 2024.

Minutes from the iconic Taipei 101, this 86-key urban retreat will deliver a unique blend of city energy and serene elegance.

The Singapore-born brand prides itself on 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.

“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,” said Cristiano Rinaldi, President of Capella Hotel Group.  “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.”


Situated 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 near the epicenter of local art attractions, and celebrates Taipei’s status as a center 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 is 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 Fu’s reflection of Taipei—a modern city that juxtaposes a world of vibrancy and poetic locality. His 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, and what modern travelers seek. From the statement design features to the intricate interior details, the experience delivered is highly refined and infused with Fu’s signature language of relaxed luxury that is relevant today.

“It is a re-telling of my journey discovering Taipei. Investigating local neighborhoods and wandering into the lush tree-lined DunHua North Road where the hotel fondly resides, I was absorbed with the poetic environment,” said Fu. “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.”


The Grill will feature 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 bread 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-story destination offers a vibrant mixology-focused ground floor, among other exciting bar-centric concepts to be announced.


Capella Wellness, located on the second floor, will focus on healing treatments inspired by traditional practices, and provide Capella’s signature offerings based on the phases of the moon. Guests will have access to four treatment rooms, a fitness studio equipped with Technogym’s latest offerings, and an outdoor heated pool.
