<Water Theme Park>
The swimming pool features transparent glass walls on three sides, enabling guests to enjoy the beautiful scenery surrounding the pool while taking a swim.The swimming pool uses clear, natural water from Barwangsan Mountain that has been disinfected to maintain pure water quality. We also are strict about maintaining a certain water temperature as the weather in Yongpyeong is cool even in the summer time. The pool measures 25X12m and is 130cm deep. There is also a shallow 35cm pool for kids.
The hotel has a good location for skiing, car sliding and enjoy winter weather. The hotel rooms are good for family or friend trip. The foods that are served in their restaurant is delicious too. It has great facilities as well.
Stayed in the youth hostel, big space, nice and cozy room with two shower rooms, so it’s convenient for us. Walking distance to restaurants and a conviennent store. Nice view of the mountain from our room.
The entire resort had no vegetarian options in the food court which is unbelievable considering the amount of 'westerners' who choose to visit. Staff were extremely unhelpful and were not willing to take ingredients out to make a meal vegetarian. This really ruined the trip for me and I would not recommend staying here.
We stayed at the Resort over CNY and it is perfectly situated to to ski in and out for the slopes. The rooms were comfortable and the staff were very competent whenever we engaged them. That being said there were one or two aspects that brings down the review. As it was CNY weekend the rates for the hotel were extremely expensive for a 2 night stay, even with this high rate though there was no breakfast included in the stay and you had to pay extra to use the Gym and swimming pool facilities. The room temperature was difficult to control and we had to open windows to regulate the heat of the room. The bathroom ventilation is connected to the room next door and our room smelled of cigarette smoke due to this, the rooms were non-smoking but the other guest obviously didn't adhere to that. I would return to the resort for more skiing but probably out of the CNY high period to get a better value for money…
It was a nice ski resort. Snow conditions was excellent. There is bus from airport and Seoul to the resort but need to book in advance. Look for the transportation in the resort website. Although it stated the ski opened in 15th November, not all slopes are opened. Full open may be in late December.
