CNN이 운영하는 라이프스타일 전문 웹사이트 CNNGo가 지난 2월 발표한

가장 특이한 숙박지 1위로 선정 되었습니다.
It's official: Korea's 50 'most unique' hotels
A ship hotel, a 'medical herb resort' and a mini Santorini:
We pick our favorites from the roundup
By CNNGo staff 21 February, 2012
Beds for bods: 50 of the best that Korea has to offer.
Never mind expensive weekend packages at Seoul’s luxury hotels.
Korea’s alternative accommodations tend to be much more visually interesting
-- and not just a little campy.
Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) announced the publication of “Korea’s most
unique accommodations” on Monday.
Travel writers and reporters, as well as high-profile foreign visitors contributed
to the selection of the 50 venues.
While the 115-page photograph-filled book will not be for sale and mostly
distributed to the 26 international branches of KTO, the organization is
planning to make it available in an e-book format on the official Visit Korea
website later this month.
The roundup includes lesser known accommodation options such as the
Phoenix Island resort, which features beautiful glass venues designed by
Japanese architect Tadao Ando, as well as the recently renovated hanok hotel Kundaemunjip (큰대문집) in Seoul.
"My personal favorite is the Podo Hotel Pinx on Jeju Island," says Shin
Seokyung, the assistant director of the publications team who oversaw the project.
Podo Hotel Pinx features a group of thatched-roof cottages where the rooms are "connected to look like bunches of grapes when viewed from the sky.
" Here are our three favorites from the extensive list:
1. Sun Cruise Resort & Yacht
It sounds like a bad riddle:
Where to cruise if you don't want to actually cruise.
What looks like a ship and feels like ship but doesn’t sail?
Sun Cruise Resort & Yacht, located in Jeongdongjin,
“so resembles a cruise ship that it could, in theory, stay afloat
if pushed into the sea,” says the KTO guide.
But with all the cruising mishaps happening in the world lately,
perhaps it’s a good thing that this 121-room hotel and condominium
isn’t actually braving the waters.
