Podo Hotel at Pinx Golf Course, Jeju

23 June, 2011

The island of Jeju used to be the honeymoon destination of choice among Koreans: a pretty little island off the South Korean coast, it has a warm and temperate summer climate and rugged coastline which is perfect for post-wedding coupley snapshots.

Like many other destination islands, there’s a bit of something for everyone. Jeju is home to a fantastic golf and country club, Pinx, which hosts the Ballantine’s Championship and other international tournaments. It’s a gorgeous location which looks towards the towering Mount Halla on one side and the ocean on the other.Apart from the golf course and country club, Pinx also has a sweet on-site hotel called Podo. The curvy, white topped design is supposed to resemble a vine of grapes from above (though we reckon it looks more like the roof was covered with oversized golf balls) and is a naturalistic space which is big on light, sprawling gardens and calm.

An unusual feature of each room is that it comes equipped with a Pinx hot springs bath. Yes, the spa comes to you! The Arago hot spring waters are a welcome relief after a day spent on the course. Fill up, take a deep soak and relax…

There’s plenty to do on Jeju. We recommend visiting the eerie Manjanggul caves and lava tube along with a hike up Mount Halla, is a UNESCO-protected heritage site. The lakes, waterfalls and countryside are otherworldly and spectacular.

Jeju is a really unusual island definitely more popular with the local crowd, but a real hidden gem nonetheless.

Deluxe Korean rooms from KRW 350,000 (approximately HKD 2,500).
