Hyatt Hotels Corporation's largest hotel in Asia Pacific has opened
in South Korea, the 1,600-room Grand Hyatt Jeju also marks the return of
a Hyatt branded hotel to the southern island, known for its rich
history and culture.
Built into the new twin-tower landmark Jeju Dream Tower, the
integrated lifestyle destination combines accommodation, culinary,
leisure and entertainment into one. This includes 14 F&B options,
with menus curated in collaboration with local suppliers; HAN Collection
— a space showcasing 200 Korean fashion designers and brands; Jeju's
largest outdoor deck with heated infinity pool; two spas; and eight
dedicated meeting and event spaces.
For larger events, the Grand Club — also the largest Grand Hyatt club
lounge in Asia Pacific — can host up to 200 pax free to mingle in three
social spaces: the Library, Dining Hall and Living Room.
Meanwhile, the 260sqm Presidential Suite can be turned into a space
for private events and celebrations, with dining and living areas
supported by a massage room, sauna-steam room, and butler service.
Outdoor events can also take place on the 4,290sqm pool deck.
The hotel is a 10-minute drive from Jeju International Airport, 15
minutes from the port and cruise terminals, as well as walking distance
from retail and dining zones such as Jeju Dongmun Market and Nuwemaru
Street. A major highway nearby also leads out towards the Seogwipo
beachside district and UNESCO World Heritage sites such as Mount
Hallasan Natural Reserve, Geomunoreum Lava Tube System and Seongsan
IIchulbong Tuff Cone.
“Grand Hyatt Jeju reinforces the prestigious Jeju Dream Tower
development’s position as the city’s new hotspot and we are grateful to
work with the hotel’s ownership company, Lotte Tour Development, and for
its trust in Hyatt as we continue our strategic brand growth in Korea
with this debut in this fast-emerging leisure destination," said Paul
Kwok, general manager and managing director of Grand Hyatt Jeju.
