The guides they selected were very good and, in three cases (Seoul, Hoi An/Hue, and Angkor Wat) simply outstanding.

Why We Love This Hotel :

Location: Located a ten-minute drive from downtown Seoul, this property is set in pristine mountain forests and offers wonderful city and forest views.

Service: The Banyan Tree brand is famous for its outstanding hospitality and spa service.


The Banyan Tree Club and Spa Seoul offers the full scope of its trademark luxurious leisure amenities and spa treatments. The spa and sauna are frequented by local members and hotel guests, as are the sports facilities - the pool, tennis courts, skating rink (in winter), a gymnasium and Troon Golf Academy with driving ranges and golfing simulator.


An outdoor basketball court takes place amid the green grounds of the hotel, and it’s free for use of hotel guests for up to two hours per day.

Driving Range

A two-story, 80-yard driving range is available to those wanting to practice their swing. There’s also a 3D golf simulator, a golf shop and coaches from the Troon Golfing Academy on hand to advise.


A futsal field is located on the property, belonging to Cha Beom Gun Soccer Academy. Guests of the hotel can use the field at no charge for up to two hours per day.  


A high-tech gymnasium is open from 6am-10pm every day, offering guests a wide choice of cardio machines, free weights and the assistance of trained fitness professionals. The gym also offers aerobics and yoga classes and a rock wall.

Ice Rink

From December to February, the Oasis pool converts into an ice rink and bob-sled field.


An indoor pool is available for serious swimmers who like to do laps, while an outdoor pool - the Oasis - is better suited to those who just want a relax swim. There are aqua aerobics classes offered and two mini pools for children.


A well-equipped sauna offers guests three temperature-controlled pools, an aroma steam room, ice fountain room, herbal sauna room, shower experience rooms and a relaxation lounge.


Banyan Tree spas are famous for their extensive ranges of treatments, highly-trained staff and natural, exotic ingredients. The spa offers massage, beauty treatments, rejuvenation, waxing, special Rainmist therapy and indulgent signature packages.


A tennis court is open to guests from 7am-9pm. Guests can book in for a lesson or just enjoy with friends. Available free of charge for up to two hours per day.
