Opened in 2006, the Hilton Namhae Resort is a modern oasis nestled in one of Korea’s most secret scenic regions, Namhae Island. Clear your lungs with some fresh air while playing a round on Namhae’s shimmering green golf course, one of the only seaside golf courses in Korea, before partaking in delectable fresh seafood prepared in the traditional Namhae style at the resort’s restaurant, Horizon.
Then ease any tensions away in the Chill Out Zone where you can receive a Korean style massage or simply unwind in a jjimjilbang sauna. As you return to your airy, modern room, make sure to take in the sunset from your balcony or floor-length windows before peacefully sleeping the night away.
