My daughter and I stayed here during the Chusok Holiday (Korean Thanksgiving). It's normally a 3.5 hr drive from Seoul (when not leaving/returning on a Chusok exodus day).

- It's located in a beautiful mountainous area
- The resort grounds are very nice. Manicures lawns, lots of flowers and foliage
- The interior of the hotel is on par with what you'd expect at the Vdara or Aria hotels or perhaps almost to the level of the Trump hotel in Vegas (I've stayed at all the aforementioned locations)
- We were given a room w 2 queen beds. Very roomy (gigantic by Japan standards) and nicely appointed though I wouldn't say it was luxurious
- the bathroom was quite large with a large separate shower with rain shower head and separate wand. There was a large stand alone bathtub (think modern claw foot tub) with shower wand attachment - probably the nicest tub I've seen at a hotel
- parking was a bit confusing. But it's self parking to the right, opposite the hotel as u turn left into hotel area (it appears to be underground). We valet parked. It was 15,000 Won (about $13.50 US) per day
- Fireworks every night we were there were amazing. I'd put it on par w the Disney Land (California) fireworks (which I've seen numerous times). Coordinated to music, including some contraption that shoots balls of fire. We watched from our, almost top floor room a few nights, best view
- 1.5 hrs drive away from Samcheok beaches. Clear blue water. Gorgeous. Clear bottom kayaks for rent at some beaches (20,000 Won for 2 person, 40,000 Won for family boat - all clear bottom so you can see into the water)
- about 1 hour drive to rail cars, 45 minute drive to glass U-shaped sidewalk goes over cliff. It's right next to probably the longest, highest (and scariest) zip-line ride I've ever seen. Probably 1.25+ mile long and over 2,000 ft above ground at the beginning
- We were the only Westerners we saw while there
- very few English-speakers at the hotel, but don't let it dissuade you. It wasn't a problem for us
- The restaurants were merely marginal. The food was not remotely amazing, yet of course it was very expensive (think resort prices)
- there is a casino there and we walked through to go to a restaurant but didn't play
- a Big negative was they wanted 14,000 Won per person to have access to the swimming pool. I've never heard of a resort charging to have access to the swimming pool. Not at The Trump, The W, the Fairmont - all hotels have a similar or higher star rating. We just thought that was lame.
- There were lots of activities for parents and young children on the big grass lawn

I stayed in high one hotel before and this time I stayed in convention hotel. actually I booked Gangwon land hotel but they told me upgrade to convention hotel. the two hotels are connected together, just next to each others. My advice is for family ski rig kids better stay in here. food choices are more here than high one. more international food choices and longer in room services hour. the bad point to me in high one is their in room service time is limited. for ski , here you can take shuttle bus as well to ski and once arrive you can choose go up or down. I would recommend this ski hotel

This is the best hotel room we stayed. As we stayed at the corner, we enjoyed 2 sides of full length glass windows with beautiful mountain views, including from the bath tub! The rooms are very new, clean and cosy. There is a free dance performance in the evening and nice indoor swimming room. WiFi is free and fast. Cafe is cosy and the hotel is grand.

Room tip: Select the corner room where you get 2 sides windows views.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The room is spacious even with an extra bed. Air conditioning is cold. The bathroom is big, with bath tub, shower room and heated toilet bowl. It provides facial cleanser and moisturiser in sachets. The swimming pool is heated so it is safe for kids in cold weather. We also enjoyed the slides at the pool (floats are provided). The down side is there is no convenience store nearby. We can watch the fountain show from our room at night, without stepping out. We can also enjoy the mountain view from our room.

Spent two nights at this beautiful place overlooking moutains about three hours from Seoul.

The facilities are extremely good and the staff make you feel part of the hotel. I recommend this resort to anyone even if it is not sky time.

well done!

Room tip: Rooms on the western wing have a better view
