Bringing the outside in
Surrounded by spectacular palaces and gardens, the Executive Tower at Lotte Hotel Seoul is a new addition to the city, with a restaurant by Pierre Gagnaire and the largest club lounge in South Korea, offering fantastic views.
Reopened this September following a year-long refurbishment, the 225 deluxe rooms and 53 suites exude style. They’re decked out with Korean artwork and furniture, plus luxurious Diptyque bathroom amenities. Throughout the hotel, a signature scent, A Walk in the Woods, transports guests to South Korea’s forests with notes of woody musk, refreshing fruits and aromatic flowers.
Business travellers are well looked-after at the hotel, too, with a packing and unpacking service available for busy business customers on a tight schedule. Further to this, all suites have a speedy Valet Box laundry service.
But there’s more to come — Lotte Hotel Seoul is expected to attract some of the world’s most distinguished guests following the multi-billion-dollar renovation of its Royal Suite. Equipped with a private TechnoGym fitness area, it also features Beautyrest Black, the largest bed available in South Korea, as well as one of the world’s finest instruments, a C. Bechstein grand piano.
