Four Seasons signs resort in Jeju Shinhwa World, South Korea
Landing Jeju Development Co., Ltd. (LJDC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Landing International Development Limited and the developer and operator of Jeju Shinhwa World, and Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts jointly announced plans to launch a Four Seasons resort in the heart of Jeju Shinhwa World.
Located one hour from Seoul by plane, Jeju Island is home to some of Korea’s most spectacular natural wonders, including multiple UNESCO World Heritage sites, an expansive network of underground lava caves, thundering waterfalls, lush coastal hiking trails and the highest mountain peak in all of Korea. A year-round destination for travel with friends and family, Jeju Island also hosts the Jeju Food & Wine Festival and offers a colourful array of local cuisine.
The first of its kind on the island, Jeju Shinhwa World will be one of Korea’s most dynamic resort developments, encompassing high-end hotel facilities including the world-class Four Seasons resort, upscale resort condominiums and villas, and retail space for international and K-fashion brands. The integrated development will also feature an array of entertainment options including a water park, theme park, international-style casino and K-pop entertainment centre.
“Jeju attracted close to 16 million visitors in 2016, and tourism is expected to continue to grow with a strong momentum for many years to come. We believe with its world-class products and service quality, Four Seasons will enhance the hospitality offerings in Jeju and further strengthen Jeju Shinhwa World’s market position as a desired tourist destination in Jeju,” says Yang Zhihui, chairman and executive director of Landing International Development Limited.
“Korea is an important market for luxury leisure and business travellers. We are pleased to be extending our presence with a new resort experience on Jeju Island to complement our urban property in Seoul,” says J. Allen Smith, president and CEO, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “Landing International has an incredible vision for Jeju Shinhwa World. We look forward to working in partnership with them to create a world-class Four Seasons resort on Jeju Island, offering yet another destination in Korea for local and international travellers to experience the personalised service and thoughtful attention to detail that define Four Seasons.”
Four Seasons Resort Jeju Island at Jeju Shinhwa World, South Korea will include approximately 240 lavishly furnished guest rooms, suites and exclusive villas, with a variety of tailor-made restaurants and bars from which to choose. The resort will be equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for intimate weddings and prestigious corporate events, as well as a luxurious spa designed in the style of a traditional Korean tea house.
Jeju Shinhwa World is opening in phases in late 2017. It will be one of Korea’s most exciting and prestigious integrated leisure and entertainment resorts.
