The newest hotel to emerge on the rocky coastline of Gijang, Busan in South Korea is a luxury property that welcomes guests through a visually stunning ‘cave’ with wavy, symmetrical structures for its walls and ceiling that is almost devoid of furniture. Guests ascend 10 floors to the main lobby, a cavernous space that appears one with the ocean in front.
Hilton Busan’s interior continues to impress at the McQueen’s Bar and private terrace, Eternal Journey library, guestrooms as well as function rooms. Its grand ballroom, rightly named Cruise Grand Ballroom, evokes the vibe of a cruise ship with floor-to-ceiling windows all around, bringing ocean views right in.
This achingly chic and Instagrammable hotel is Hilton Busan, which breaks the mould that casts the usual serious and ‘businessy’ Hilton hotels we have all come to know of.
It is of little surprise that the beautiful hotel has become the darling of luxury brand events, having hosted exclusive parties thrown by BMW, Jaguar, Dior, and Hermes since its opening in July 2017.
Perfect as a one-stop business and pleasure destination for meeting and incentive groups, the property boasts Destination Dining capabilities for up to 500 guests, a 6,112m2 hot spring spa facility named Water House. The property also adjoins Ananti Cove, an upscale neighbourhood that brings together restaurants, cafes and designer shops that cannot be found elsewhere in the country.
