To relax further, guests can also participate in organised morning walks, yoga, pilates, meditation, or sound healing sessions; while special interest activities include a Jeju Tea ceremony, and traditional wine tastings.
Also located on the resort’s grounds are five F&B options, which include the all-day dining Island Kitchen; a BBQ and rotisserie restaurant, The Flying Hog; and Yeoumul, a Jeju-style omakase restaurant, featuring seasonal ingredients and fresh seafood harvested by the island’s local female divers called Haenyeo.
As for bleisure travellers with their families in tow, the brand’s signature Family by JW programme organises activities for their young ones such as cooking classes, and harvesting fresh produce from the resort’s own JW Garden. This is in addition to the kids’ club, playground, and swimming pool.
