The Four Seasons Resort, which is scheduled to be opened in 2019, will include approximately 240 lavishly furnished guest rooms, suites and exclusive villas, with a variety of tailor-made restaurants and bars and will be equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for intimate weddings and prestigious corporate events, as well as a luxurious spa, designed in the style of a traditional Korean tea house.

Phase one of Jeju Shinhwa World, comprising two hotels, Shinhwa theme park, MICE facility and Somerset serviced resort condominium, has been opened/will open in phases in 2017.
