The El Dorado Resort in Sinan County, Jeollanam-do (South Jeolla Province), provides the unique flair of a Spanish-style coastal villa. As it is in the same county as the island of Jeungdo, which became Asia’s first town to join the international Slow City movement, the resort too is considered a “slow resort” where travelers can truly relax in peace.
On the opposite coast, Hanhwa Resort Seorak Sorano welcomes visitors to its Italian-themed facilities. The nine interconnected buildings are modeled after the small Tuscan village of Sorano, best evidenced in the resort’s red roof and yellow walls. On weekends, the lobby is alive with the music of a string quartet, welcoming visitors and bidding them arrivederci! The resort also offers its own recently renovated waterpark, Seorak Waterpia, as well as a golf course, 4D movie theatre, and film set where many Korean TV shows are filmed.
Mayfield Hotel & Resort in southwestern Seoul resembles a European castle, complete with gardens. As well, it’s convenient to both Gimpo and Incheon international airports, and not far from downtown Seoul.
