The shiny and new Park Hyatt Busan is causing quite a beautiful buzz in South Korea. Designed by world-renowned and award-winning architect Daniel Libeskind, this new luxury hotel is scheduled to open March 1st. The building features a curvilinear geometry and glass facade inspired by the wind filling the sails of a ship, the waves of the Haeundae Ocean, and the camellia – Busan’s flower. Located in South Korea’s second largest city in the iconic l’Park development in Marine City, the Park Hyatt Busan is adjacent to Haeundae Beach and will offer the largest rooms and suites in Busan.
Each of the Park Hyatt Busan's 269 rooms and suites feature natural elements including French oak flooring, granite stone bathrooms and floor-to-ceiling windows that allow for spectacular views of the ocean, Gwangan Bridge and the Yacht Marina.The interiors were designed by the award-winning Japan-based firm Super Potato. I'm intrigued by the balance between the ultra-modern exterior and the soft and natural feel of the interior decor.
And, the Lumi Spa & Fitness center spans three full floors and features a 65-foot, indoor, glass-enclosed swimming pool and whirlpool with full ocean views. There are seven treatment rooms, men’s and women’s saunas, Korean scrub services, 24-hour gymnasium with private fitness studios and a golf simulation driving range. Dining options at the Park Hyatt Busan include three residential themed restaurants - the Dining Room, the Living Room and the residential-style Lounge. There is also a patisserie, specializing in homemade French pastries and sweets.For more information, visit the Park Hyatt Busan website.
