Howard Johnson has opened a hotel on the shores
of South Korea’s leading island destination, Jeju.
The 241-room oceanfront Howard Johnson Jeju
Seogwipo Harbor hotel, the first Howard Johnson in Asia outside of
China, is operating under a franchise agreement with local South
Korean developer, Windum AMC.
Much loved by honeymooners and holiday makers,
Jeju Island is known for its beautiful beaches, waterfalls and volcanic landscape of craters and lava tubes. Hallasan Mountain, a
dormant volcano, features hiking trails and a crater lake at the
summit, with Gwaneumsa Temple nearby.
Barry Robinson, President and Managing Director
of Wyndham Hotel Group South East Asia and Pacific Rim, said,
“Howard Johnson hotels are grounded in quality service and an
unwavering commitment to making guests feel at home. It's the same
warm, friendly experience we've offered for decades – because we
know that honest hospitality never goes out of style. With its
prime position by the ocean, Howard Johnson Jeju Seogwipo will
provide a unique and memorable hotel stay experience for visitors
to Jeju Island.”
