The largest Hyatt hotel in the Asia Pacific region opened last month on South Korea’s Jeju Island.
Part of the new Jeju Dream Tower, the island’s twin tower landmark, Grand Hyatt Jeju has 1,600 rooms, 14 restaurants and bars, eight residential-style event spaces, two premium spas, the island’s largest outdoor deck with an infinity pool, and a dedicated retail space showcasing more than 200 Korean fashion designers and brands.
“Grand Hyatt Jeju represents the best of modern Korean culture and offers welcoming hospitality, which together with the spectacular surrounding views, bold gastronomy scene and exciting recreational venues, provides exhilarating and memorable experiences,” said Paul Kwok, the property’s general manager and managing director.
Located in the heart of Jeju City, the hotel is a 10-minute drive from Jeju International Airport and a 15-minute drive from the port and cruise terminals. It is also within walking distance from shopping and culinary destinations such as Jeju Dongmun Market and Nuwemaru Street. The main highway near the hotel leads to the Seogwipo beachside district and UNESCO World Heritage sites such as Mount Hallasan Natural Reserve, Geomunoreum Lava Tube System and Seongsan Ilchulbong Tuff Cone.
The property amplifies its position as the largest Hyatt hotel in the region by offering guestrooms that start at a very spacious 700 square feet. Each room is accented with modern Korean art and has a 75-inch flat-screen television, three-seater sofa, and a marble bathroom with a double vanity and island bathtub.
The 2,798-square-foot Presidential Suite is ideal for private events and celebrations. It features two bedrooms, separate living and dining areas, a massage room and a sauna room as well as dedicated butler service.
Grand Hyatt Jeju is also home to the largest Grand Hyatt club lounge in the Asia Pacific region. The Grand Club has three social spaces—the Library, Dining Hall and Living Room—and can accommodate up to 200 guests.
Other highlights of the property include:
- Korean Jjimjil Spa, which delivers an indulgent bathhouse experience offering a range of treatments and facilities including traditional Korean body scrubs and red clay, cypress, ice and salt specialty therapy rooms.
- F&B options including China House, a restaurant specializing in Northern Chinese, Shanghainese and Sichuan cuisines; Noknamu, which offers Korean BBQ dining with traditional Korean premium beef; and Yumeyama, a theatrical showcase of Japanese izakaya, sushi and teppanyaki.
- A 46,177-square-foot pool deck with a heated infinity pool, private cabanas, a hot tub, a kids’ pool and a poolside bar, all set against the backdrop of the sea and Halla Mountain.
