The urban resort, which will be IHG’s tenth hotel in South Korea, will provide the voco experience to guests and features its signature ‘voco Life’ concept.

Additionally, the hotel offers rooftop pool with a 360-degree view of Godeok city and Ansung River along with facilities including a restaurant, lounge and bar, fitness centre and 1,300m² of meeting space.

Seraphim Development project director Sae Youn Park said: “The voco brand offers a contemporary lifestyle experience that is warm and welcoming. Its distinctive hallmarks of attentive service, comfort, and leisure spaces for guests will bring our vision for this urban destination resort to life.”

The brand offers flexibility with design concepts and is suitable for a range of asset types including new-build and conversion projects.
