The Banyan Tree Club & Spa Seoul proudly lives up its billing as the world’s best urban resort. Centrally located at the foot of Mount Namsan, the hotel’s main building is perched on a hilltop to embrace the views of the neighbouring mountain and is the perfect escape from the capital.

Open since 2010, the Banyan Tree Club & Spa Seoul boasts just 16 rooms and 18 suites, a conscious decision made to offer guests complete privacy. With a maximum of four rooms located on each floor, the generous floor space of between 50 to 105 sqm holds a plush king-sized bed, a spacious bathroom and a personal in-room relaxation pool for a quiet dip or period of reflection.

Downstairs, guests can enjoy all-day cuisine at the Granum Dining Lounge which specializes in Pan-Asian a la carte dishes including a mixture of Thai, Chinese, Indonesian, Korean and Singaporean favorites. Across in the Festa Bistro & Bar, live entertainment accompanies the European menu, which offers bistro classics and several Italian pasta specials.

The hotel also has a club member scheme which offers access to the club house facilities. However, you don’t need to be a member to enjoy the Banyan service. The Banyan Tree Club & Spa Seoul aims to provide a personal service for each and every guest. Hotel guests are uniquely identified as club members and will receive exclusive access to all club facilities throughout their stay.

Club members enjoy amenities including an indoor and outdoor pool, fitness classes, a rooftop gym and the use of sporting facilities; the tennis court, futsal field, basketball court and golf range are enough to suit any sport or fitness fan. Members also receive exclusive access to the Club Member’s Restaurant (alongside hotel guests) to taste the best of the Korean kitchen and other international cuisine.

If wanting to experience The Banyan Tree Club & Spa as a day guest, the hotel is equipped for every season. The outdoor swimming pool – dubbed The Oasis – is available for swimming and sun-bathing, acting as an escape from the city in the summer months. With perfect views of the mountain landscape, private cabanas are also available for rental and sunbeds with a waiter service are also on hand. In the winter, the hotel prepares an outdoor ice rink for guests, club members and the public to enjoy between December and February. Tickets include day entry to the ice rink and a trip to the hotel is also an opportunity to sample one of the restaurants, with bookings recommended in advance (extra charges apply).

For day trippers, the hotel also houses the Banyan Tree Spa. Located in the Club, services are available for hotel guests, club members and the public. The Spa has 11 spa treatment rooms for individuals and couples which boast their own bathrooms and relaxation areas to complete the treatment experience. Additionally, the spa suites are equipped with rain mist rooms for a unique tropical rain experience. A full treatment list can be found on the hotel’s website and the staff are ready to help build the perfect spa treatment for you.

The Banyan Tree Club & Spa Seoul has the location, the privacy and the amenities. Whether for a weekend to while the time away in your own private relaxation pool in the hotel room or to mix with friends in the winter wonderland ice rink, the Banyan Tree Club & Spa Seoul has something for all seasons.
