For a touch of understated luxe, head to the glass interiors of The Okura Prestige Taipei, an oasis to kick back and relax in that features a heated rooftop pool with sun loungers and sauna zones. Despite being situated at prime foodie real estate, the hotel also offers top-class Cantonese and Japanese food at its resident restaurants.
