South Korea’s Paradise City Airport Hotel Will Truly Wow You

Some of the world’s most extravagant airports are located in and around Asia. For year’s we’ve seen Singapore’s airport win awards for its over-the-top terminal that is complete with almost everything you could think of.

Now, South Korea is looking to make its mark in the dope airport experiences game. Just outside of Incheon International Airport, you will find Paradise City Hotel.

This multi-billion dollar “art-tainment” resort is giving places like Las Vegas, Macau and more a run for their money.

For the art lovers, there are nearly 3,000 pieces of original artwork displayed around the 3 million square foot complex. Yes, you read that right. A piece that stands out as soon as you enter the main lobby is a half gold, half flayed Pegasus created by Damien Hirst, with one of Yayoi Kusama’s giant glass polka-dotted pumpkins behind it.

We haven’t even begun to talk about the actual amenities inside the hotel.

For those traveling with children or families, you’ll want to check out The Wonderbox, which is said to be a chic amusement park inside of the complex.

If you are looking to get in a little relaxation, the spa will be your favorite place. At 3.25 acres, the space can hold up to 2,000 people at once. While this may seem a bit crowded, there is said to be enough room to give everyone at least 100 square feet of personal space.

Just like traditional Korean spas, there are several soaking tubs, saunas set at varying temperatures, and more.

The actual hotel has over 780 rooms which are also decked out in artwork. The same builders responsible for Emirates Palace and Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas, are behind the creation of Incheon’s Paradise City hotel.

There is even a bonus luxury boutique hotel on-site for those who want a little more peace. In the off-seasons, rooms can go for as little as $250, which isn’t bad considering all that is offered on the property.

If you are heading to South Korea, you will definitely want to check this out at least for one night.
