Hanwha Hotels & Resorts

Hanwha Hotels & Resorts owns and operates an international network of hospitality and leisure businesses. We began operations as the developer of Korea’s first resort condominium project in 1979, and grew rapidly after joining Hanwha in 1986. In 2009, we merged with Hanwha Development and Hanwha 63 City, creating a diversified business portfolio that includes hotels, resorts, gourmet restaurants, banquet services, and leisure attractions.

Hanwha Hotels & Resorts is a major player in Korea’s hospitality industry. We own and operate Seoul’s 410-guestroom luxury boutique hotel, THE PLAZA, and Korea’s largest condominium chain with 12 properties and over 4,800 guestrooms in total. The company is also actively expanding overseas. We operate the Ocean Palace Golf Club and Resort in Nagasaki, Japan and the Saipan World Resort. We also own and operate premier golf courses in Japan and Korea with a total of 126 holes. And, we have partnerships, including with Resort Condominiums International, Tianlun Condominiums, the BIP Country Club and Spa in China, Prince Hotels & Resorts in Japan, and the olden Horse Hotel and Mines Wellness Hotel in Malaysia.

In addition, Hanwha Hotels & Resorts operates a number of themed destinations and resort attractions across Korea, including Seorak Waterpia, Gyeongju Springdome water parks, Jeju Therapy Center, Royal Saddle Equestrian Society, Seorak Cinerama Film Lot, and Jade Garden in Chuncheon. We also operate 63 Square, which features Sea World, Sky Art, Art Hall, and Wax Museum, providing high-quality, satisfactory services to customers.

Leveraging our expertise gleaned from operating 63 Sea World, Korea’s first aquarium, Hanwha Hotels & Resorts also now runs several world-class aquariums in Jeju, Yeosu and Ilsan. With our marine research institute and marine medical centers, we significantly improve the quality of Korea’s aquariums in terms of social responsibility for conserving marine species, breeding techniques and presentation methods.
In particular, Hanwha aqua planet ILSAN, which opened in 2014, is the first in Korea to integrate a zoo and an aquarium. The number of visitors exceeded one million a year after its opening, cementing its position as an exceptionally popular urban leisure facility. Hanwha aqua planet also succeeded in going abroad. As its first overseas advancement, the company will operate on commission a 17,800- ton indoor aquarium, called Wanda Nanchang Aquarium in China from May 2016.

The Food Culture (FC) division is providing comprehensive food services, such as contracted food service, dining businesses as well as food materials supply. Our food analysis lab is certified by the food sanitation inspection institution, undergoing a rigorous food sanitation management system. In addition, we also have a state-of-the-art distribution system. Both enable us to retain the leading food provision capacity in the industry. Our contracted food service unit has unique capabilities based on our specialized, systematic operation system. Our dining business unit includes the concession part which provides commissioned dining services in multiuse complex facilities. The unit also runs classy restaurants with differentiated concepts such as Chinese Bistro T-won and French and Italian restaurants Oreno.
