Overlooking scenic Namsan Mountain, the Banyan Tree Club and Spa is one of Seoul's few urban resorts that offer visitors the unique opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city center without ever leaving the capital. The property's serene atmosphere, lush surroundings, and excellent facilities make it the preferred hotel for those seeking only the most luxurious accommodations on their trip to Korea. While the hospitality is second to none, the real draw of the Banyan Tree is its innumerable facilities, catering to all ages. The resort's spa is one of the most exclusive in the city and offers up a number of relaxing, albeit expensive, treatments to heal body and soul. For those looking to stay in shape, the basketball and tennis courts, fitness center, and driving range are fantastic spaces that surprisingly aren't usually crowded. The highlight of the features is The Oasis, the Banyan Tree's pool area. Deep blue waters create an atmosphere that could easily be mistaken for one of an island paradise. During the summer, the hotel hosts a number of entertaining events such as barbecues and concerts, in addition to serving up tasty cocktails at its poolside Aqua Bar. The Oasis also features facilities for children, including a baby pool, a sandbox, and a kiddy pool equipped with water guns and pool toys. Kids will also enjoy the ice rink that transforms the Banyan Tree into a winter wonderland in the colder months.
