Our expertise

Hanwha Hotels & Resorts began operations in 1979 as the developer of South Korea’s first resort condominium project. Since then, we have grown into the nation’s premier leisure and service provider. Today, we are focusing business on the two pillars of hospitality and estate services, along with subsidiaries Aqua Planet, an aquarium business operator, The Tastable, a food and beverage service provider and Hanwha Next, an equestrian business operator.


Our Hospitality Division owns South Korea’s largest condominium brands, including 10 resorts with 4,702 rooms as well as four hotels and three golf courses. We continually remodel resorts to strengthen our competitiveness. Geoje Belvedere, our resort launched in 2018 in Geoje, with a total of 470 rooms, is loved as South Korea’s classic luxury marine resort complex.


THE PLAZA is a world-class luxury boutique hotel with 306 rooms, six restaurants and bars, nine convention halls, fitness center and spa. In 2020, we launched the premium resort hotel Yeosu BELLE MER, followed by Yangyang Breathe By MATIÈ in 2021. Yangyang Breathe By MATIÈ, in particular, is the first hotel in South Korea to combine the concept of surfing and healing. In July 2022, we launched a new lifestyle resort, MATIÈ Osiria in the Busan Osiria complex, which offers a unique sensibility. Featuring a new kind of relaxation and service in collaboration with local brands, and using digital transformational technology, we expect to launch ten or more MATIÈ franchised properties around the nation by 2030.


In addition, we own and operate three premier golf courses in Seorak, Yongin and Jeju, totaling 63 golf holes. Each course boasts high-end facilities, services and unique characteristics in harmony with the natural environment, the mountains and the sea. We also operate Xystum flower shops, with the largest number of florists in the nation, along with theme parks such as Seorak Waterpia and Pororo Aqua Village, which attract family visitors.


In the hospitality business, we are focused on developing a complex for leisure lifestyles and launching a new hotel brand. Building on our deep capabilities and expertise, we will expand our contract management services for golf courses and hotels. In addition, we are establishing a novel home interior ecosystem that bridges online and offline worlds. To achieve this, we plan to collaborate with proptech or property technology companies that can automatically convert 2D architectural blueprints into virtual 3D spaces.

Hanwha Hotels & Resorts' Yangyang Breathe By MATIÈ is the perfect getaway for relaxing and surfing.
