Luxury hotel firm JW Marriott has opened a new resort called JW Marriott Jeju Resort & Spa, in Seogwipo, Jeju, South Korea.

Located on a cliffside within an hour’s drive from the Jeju international airport, the new resort provides views of the volcanic coastlines of Jeju island.

The resort’s design was provided by luxury hotel designer Bill Bensley and is inspired by traditional island life and the natural beauty of the island.

The Jeju Resort & Spa is connected to Route 7 of the island’s famous walking path Olle Trail, which overlooks the ocean.

JW Marriott vice president and global brand leader Bruce Rohr said: “We are delighted to introduce the JW Marriott brand to Jeju island, one of South Korea’s most beautiful holiday destinations with its unique culture, history and traditions, as well as its spectacular UNESCO World heritage-listed natural attractions.

“JW Marriott Jeju Resort & Spa is an architectural masterpiece that exists in harmonious balance with its natural surroundings, and we are confident that this new opening will set a new benchmark for luxury resort offerings in the country.”
