We own South Korea’s best condominium chains that include the Saipan World Resorts in Saipan and the Ocean Palace Golf Club & Resorts in Japan that combined, boasts over 5,200 guest rooms across 13 properties. In Japan and South Korea, we own and operate six premier golf courses totaling 126 holes. We partner with Resort Condominiums International (RCI), a worldwide membership network, to operate hotels and resorts in China and Southeast Asia.

We also operate Seorak Waterpia, Pororo Aqua Village in Gyeongju, Jeju Therapy Center, Royal Saddle Equestrian Society, and Jade Garden in Chuncheon – all renowned attractions and the envy of other companies in the industry. In addition, we operate 63 Square on the Han River, which offers high-quality services and attractions, including 63 Art and an elaborate aquarium.

With our expertise and technologies used in the construction of 63 Sea World, the first aquarium in South Korea, we also built the breathtaking Aquarium Belt. The Aquarium Belt is South Korea’s largest network of aquariums located across 4 cities: Jeju, Yeosu, Ilsan, and Seoul. And in partnership with Geoje city government, we recently created a new tourist destination, the Hanwha Hotels & Resorts Geoje Belvedere. The marine resort with 470 rooms and a private marina opened in 2018 to rave reviews.
