Remember my articles on Jeju Shinhwa World? When I was in Jeju Shinhwa World, I stayed at the brand new Jeju Shinhwa World Landing Resort. At first I found the name Landing Resort quite peculiar but I assumed it meant as the first place to go to upon landing in Jeju.
I know now that I am mistaken about the name but, I am surely not mistaken on how Jeju Shinhwa World Landing Resort is one of Jeju’s top choice resorts.
I stayed at Jeju Shinhwa World Landing Resort at the end of March. The weather was around 12oC at midday and could drop to around 1oC at night.
Jeju Shinhwa World Landing Resort
Location & Architecture
Jeju Shinhwa World is located at Seogwipo, which is about 30-40 minutes bus ride or car (depending on traffic) from the Jeju International Airport. Landing Resort is located within Jeju Shinhwa World, easily accessed by both type of transport.
Jeju Shinhwa World Landing Resort is named after Jeju Shinhwa World’s developer, Landing International Development Limited.
From a bird’s eye view, the Landing Resort is sort of in the shape of Z, linking it to Jeju Shinhwa World Marriott Resort. This includes Landing Resort Lobby, Landing Resort Convention Centre (for MICE) and Duty Free Shops located at the linkway to Marriott Resort.
Although the exterior architecture might not look too different than most resorts in this world, the interior of Landing Resort are quite unique on it’s own. I was intrigued on what the two huge globes were at Landing Resort’s lobby. I love that each art display is accompanied by explanations, especially to curious guests like me.

My nights in the week I was in Jeju were accompanied by the softest pillows and best mattress in Jeju Shinhwa World Landing Resort’s Superior King room. I love the modern wooden design of the room and the indirect lighting that is bright enough for me to do my work and also dim enough for me to enjoy watching TV before drifting off to sleep.
I love the thick slippers provided (not many hotels rate well in the slipper category) and that they use the popular Thai beauty brand, Thann for bath amenities. Another important thing for me in a hotel room is the power sockets (since I need to charge many camera batteries and my phone after a long day out) – which Landing Resort did not disappoint.
These are the things included in my room: Mineral Water (2 bottles), Coffeepot, Hair Dryer, Scale, Iron & Ironing board, Mini-refrigerator, Safe, Alarm clock, Slippers, Gown (2 pieces), Bath supplies (Thann), Desk, Chair, Free coffee & free tea bag and Free Wi-fi.
My favourite would probably be the smart control system located next to my table that allows me to control the room lights and the room temperature. The system is also connected to the phone which I could call my home in Malaysia anytime of the day.

Other Hotel Facilities
Landing Dining is Landing Resort’s restaurant where I had my dinner for 3 nights in a row. I can’t deny that I was hooked to the fresh seafood that I went to the section 5 times each night. I tried many of the local food including the Soy Sauce Marinated Crab, which I find too salty for my Malay throat. However, I enjoyed the fresh abalone the most.

Services By Staffs
In my last article on Jeju Shinhwa World, I wrote on how friendly and helpful the staffs were on the day of my arrival as well as on my last night. There were no language barrier as the staffs are well-versed in English and some in Mandarin.
I remember on my last night, I needed to exchange USD100 to Korean Won so that I can purchase some special edition BigBang items at the shop in YG Republique only half hour before the shop closes. I was in such a hurry that I didn’t bring my passport to the reception (which you’re supposed to have with you if you want to exchange currency at the reception). I was very happy that the reception staff didn’t make a fuss, especially since I told her I need to hurry before the shop closes.
In the end, when I brought my passport to her – which was one hour later because I hung out at Crab Tong with friends first, she was the one who apologised because of the policy. I absolutely loved her friendliness and help. I highly recommend the services at Jeju Shinhwa World Landing Resort.
