Hanwha Hotels & Resorts

Hanwha Hotels & Resorts is becoming South Korea’s premier leisure and service provider of resorts, and hotels. We deliver a differentiated customer experience through our premium condominium chains, golf courses, aquariums, theme parks, and boutique hotels.

Hanwha Hotels & Resorts began operations in 1979 as the developer of South Korea’s first resort condominium project. We own one of South Korea’s top condominium chains that include the Saipan World Resorts in Saipan, boasts over 5,500 guest rooms across 12 properties. In Japan and South Korea, we own and operate five premier golf courses totaling 108 holes.

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 Sea World (now Aqua Planet 63), 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 five cities: Suwon (Gwanggyo), 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.

We also have transformed THE PLAZA into a world-class 408-room luxury boutique hotel with six restaurants and bars, nine convention halls, a fitness center and spa. Located in the heart of Seoul, THE PLAZA offers impeccable service and experience accented by its unique interior design. In 2016, the hotel became the first in South Korea to join the Autograph Collection, a luxury portfolio owned by Marriott International. Our exceptional customer service and upscale accommodations have been recognized by the hotel industry. THE PLAZA was selected as one of the Top 25 Hotels for Luxury and Best Service by the TripAdvisor 2019 Travelers’ Choice Awards. It also ranked No. 2 of the nine Best Luxury Hotels in Korea by Global Traveler, a worldwide business travel magazine. The International Hotel Awards selected THE PLAZA as its 2018 Best Luxury Hotel and Best City Hotel, the first of its kind in South Korea.

Connoisseurs can experience seven outstanding cuisines in the landmark 63 Building, along with a panoramic view of Seoul. Food is prepared with fresh seasonal ingredients by top award-winning chefs.
