Hanwha Hotels & Resorts


Hanwha Hotels & Resorts began operations in 1979 as the developer of South Korea's first resort condominium project. It joined Hanwha in 1986. With resort, hotel, and food service businesses, we are rapidly becoming South Korea's premier leisure and food service provider.


Our Resorts Division owns South Korea's largest condominium chain including the Ocean Palace Golf Club & Resort in Nagasaki, Japan, which boasts over 4,800 guest rooms across 12 properties. In Japan and South Korea, we own and operate premier golf courses totaling 126 holes. Our partners include Resort Condominiums International (RCI), a worldwide membership network; Private Label, which provides benefits for hotels and resorts in Southeast Asia; and the Golden Horse Hotel and Mines Wellness Hotel in Malaysia.

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 envied by competition. In addition, we operate 63 Square on the Han River, which offers high-quality services and attractions, including 63 Art and an elaborate aquarium.

We've applied our expertise gained and technologies developed from the former 63 Sea World, the first aquarium in South Korea. We built the breathtaking Aquarium Belt, South Korea's largest network of aquariums across 4 cities: Jeju, Yeosu, Ilsan, and Seoul. Our expertise earned us a consultant contract to design and construct the Wanda Nanchang Aquarium in China, and we now operate the 17,800-ton indoor aquarium on commission. Partnering with Geoje city government, we are creating a tourist destination, the Belvedere. The marine resort, with 465 rooms and a private marina, is expected to complete by 2018.

Our Hotel Division has developed THE PLAZA into a world-class 410-room luxury boutique hotel. 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 innovations have been recognized by the industry. THE PLAZA was selected as one of the Top 25 Hotels for Luxury and Best Service by the 2017 TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Awards. It also ranked No. 3 among Best Luxury Hotels in Korea by Global Traveler, a worldwide business travel magazine. The International Hotel Awards selected THE PLAZA as its 2017 Large Hotel & City Hotel.

Connoisseurs can experience THE PLAZA's 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.

Our Food Culture Division provides comprehensive services, including food service contracts, dining business services, and food material supplies. The food service contract unit is backed by 30 years of experience and a unique operations system. Our dining business unit provides commissioned services in multi-use complex facilities, as well as elegant wedding and banquet services.
