因為今年生日剛好是在禮拜三。不想用掉太多假(因為才年初啊)就不能去太遠的地方。原本想住的,後來覺得太遠,交通太費力,因此日子接近時又趕緊另外找一間。搜尋搜尋著,就找到這間才剛開幕沒多久的。看起來挺不錯!有我嚮往的度假感覺。因此一個月前就信信滿滿的把房間訂下來。後來直到出發前,看到別的部落客分享的圖文,才證實我的決定沒有錯。其實大家去民宿住久了會發現,官網的圖片有時候騙很大。這也不能怪它們啦,畢竟網站本來就是要吸引大家去住上一兩晚的嘛。不過對這間會這麼有自信,是因為他才剛開幕沒多久,設施一定都是新的。看了格友客觀的分享,就更證實與網站上的照片沒有差太多。

My birthday this year happened to fall on a Wednesday. Without wanting to use up all my days off, I decided to go somewhere not as far. I started looking for a place to spend the night away from Taipei at the beginning of the year. Then I realised that place was a bit too far from anywhere. So I started looking for an alternative, and came across this place. It looked really nice! I booked the room a month in advance, quite confident that my choice was right. Then a week before the actual trip, I saw another blogger's review of the place, and confirmed that I had made a right decision in coming here. You know how pictures on official websites can be deceiving... So it was a lot more practical to see another blogger's review. I had so much confidence with the decision because the place was quite new. At least the facilities would be pretty new! And reading the review basically reassured me. 

01

夜歸時,波卡拉會館外觀。

The entrance of Pokara at night.

02

說實在的,他其實不難找。因為附近剛好有個國小。只是這裡的建築物實在太少。多繞了兩圈才找到。

The place isn't that hard to find. There happens to be a school nearby. Except, there weren't many signs around, so we still ended up going round a couple of times before finally arriving...

03

波卡拉的兩旁都是這樣的稻田。

The place was surrounded by rice paddies.

05

雖然住在設施完善的度假會館中,但也不失田園的感覺。

Although the resort was quite well equipped, there is still that pastoral feeling.

06

會館的大廳。很開心生日剛好落在淡季。請個假過來玩,剛好避開周末或是旺季的人潮。

The lobby/lounge. It was low season, so I didn't have to worry about having to avoid crowds (there were no crowds)

07

黑底大花朵的布料似乎是它們的招牌。

That black flowery cushion seems to be their feature fabric.

08

擺了一台骨董鋼琴。很想去彈彈看,可是怕我才學沒多久的爛琴聲會吵到大家。

Standing at the corner of the lounge is a piano. I wanted to try and play, but I just started learning, and I didn't feel like embarrassing myself.

09

感覺很棒的用餐區。一看到這裡我就開始期待隔天的早餐了!

The dining area looked really relaxing. I couldn't wait to have breakfast here the next morning!

10

如果在房間太無聊,可以坐在這裡聊聊天,看看書。

If you feel bored in your room, you might as well come out here and chat, or read a book.

11

雖然當天晚上據說是只有我們一組客人,看到小木屋後我開始懷疑為什麼整個會館都沒人我們卻要選住小木屋呢?

Apparently, we were the only ones staying there that night. When I saw the cabin, I thought, I had the choice of the entire resort to choose from, why in the world did I choose the smallest sized room?

12

但是當我看到小木屋內部後,這個疑慮就整個消失了!今天我們被分配到幸福島。

Bu then, as I saw the inside, I was again reassured that I had made the right choice!

20

一開門就能聞到淡淡的花香。就是這一瓶的功勞!

As you open the door, you'll catch this slight fragrance of jasmin. 

13

是不是很有feel啊!

The look outside the window.

14

窗簾是遮光的,隔天早上陽光根本進不來。

The curtain blocks off the light outside completely. 

15

開始來研究沐浴間。

And here's the bathroom.

16

提供的沐浴用品都是高級貨唷!(另一個吸引我訂房的點)

This was another aspect that attracted me: they provided L'Occitane toiletries.

17

因為小木屋坪數有限,但是想要泡澡還是可以唷!

Though small, they still found a way so you could enjoy a bath if you wanted to.

18

毛巾當然也有提供。

Of course, towels are also provided.

19

這是必備的。

And other necessities.

23

倫敦熊期待晚上來洗香香囉!

London bear can't wait for his shower!

24

這是真的花兒。

Real orchid plant by the window.

25

Twinnings茶包還有即溶咖啡。

Twinnings tea bags and all-in-one coffee. 

26

哇!有紅酒耶!(其實是自己帶的)XD

Wow! How thoughtful! They even provided us with wine! (Just kidding, we brought the wine!)

27

鑰匙放這裡。Insert the key here.

28

這是我們的幸福小島!The name of our cabin was called "Content Island"!

29

在適當的時間,例如下午或是清晨,他們會放輕音樂。

In the afternoon, they'll play soft music to help you relax yourself.

30

如果天氣不錯,根本就不用去其他景點了!在這裡就可以混上一整個下午了!

What a lovely place to spend the entire afternoon! That is, if the weather is nice!

31

不過畢竟來都來了。還是出去晃晃吧!剛好工作人員他們正在喝南瓜牛奶。就到了兩杯招待我們喝喝看。對南瓜興趣沒有很大的我,卻是覺得這杯充滿了這間民宿的熱情與親切!非常好喝喔!

We could've just stayed there, but seeing it wasn't raining, we decided to go exploring anyway. The hosts here were having some pumpkin milk. They happily offered us some. I've never been a big fan of pumpkins, but I thought the drink was filled with their hospitality and kindness! 

33

這間每個角落都很適合拍照啊!

Every corner of the place was suitable for a shot! 

32

雖然很想直接在這裡混到隔天check-out,不過還是想趁著下午沒下雨趕快出去閒晃一下吧。

But let's go explore the city before it starts pouring... 

35

夜歸後,看到的又是不一樣的波卡拉了!不過因為它們趁著淡季,還想要做一些裝潢上的加強,所以我就沒有逗留多拍幾張了。

After we returned at night, we saw a completely different Pokara in the dark. But since they were making some reinforcements during this low season, I didn't linger very long for more photos. 

36

早上起來聽到雨聲,原本想:大事不妙!不過當我卡開門後,看見雨中的波卡拉,我又覺得這裡實在浪漫到一個很變態的地步!為什麼明明下著雨,我還是很陶醉!?

The next morning, I thought the rain was going to completely ruin my day. But then when I opened the door and saw Pokara in the rain, I realised that this place was even more romantic in the rain! 

37

跟前一天陰天的照片比起來,雨中的波卡拉,似乎色彩更飽和。

Look at how the colors stand out, compared to the ones I took yesterday!
  
40

Check-in的時候,我本來是跟他們說,如果只有我們一組客人,早餐不用準備太豐盛。但他們說就算只有我們一組,也是要用心做!這就是他們的用心早餐!

When we checked in, I told them they didn't have to prepare an entire breakfast if we were the only ones there. But they insisted that they had to do their best, no matter now many guests were staying. This was their breakfast!

41

配著的是地瓜稀飯。 Sweet potato porridge to go with the other dishes. Very Taiwanese style.

42

早餐很重要!一定要吃喔!London bear reminds you: breakfast is very important!

43

因為遇到下雨,就更捨不得離開了(其實是不想淋雨)。

Because of the rain, we stayed in our room even longer than anticipated. 

44

不過時間到了還是得退房啦。

But in the end, we still had to check out.

45

我們把背包寄放在這裡,又閒晃了好一陣子才回來拿行李準備回台北。

We left our backpacks there, and went off exploring some more before coming back to get our stuff to go back home.

46

離開前,他們準備了伴手禮相送。

Before we left, they gave usu a bag of some local goodies.

47  

雖然只住了一個晚上,但確實又是一個令人難忘的生日!

Although I stayed for just one night, it was yet another unforgettable birthday!

天仙念:大家都知道,天仙是最重服務品質的。雖然不要求要到五星級,但基本的親切到位,我就很滿足了。波卡拉的親切做到恰恰好處(不至於親切到令你監介)。設施的確都很新,整體的感覺也都很舒服。非常推薦喔!
