Four Seasons To Unveil New Hotel In Seoul In October 2015

This October, Four Seasons will unveil its first property in South Korea with the debut of the Four Seasons Hotel Seoul.

The venerable brand has an arguably unrivaled knack for location, and the new hotel is not exception. Centrally located in the Gwanghwamun district at the heart of the bustling city, it offers ready access to all there is to see and do in this up-and-coming metropolis.

The Shilla Hotel, Seoul, Korea

The Shilla Hotel is the oldest hotel in Seoul, and probably the most well respected…

Owned and operated by Samsung, The Shilla is known for their five star service, which I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing these past few days as I’m a guest of the Asian Leadership Conference being held here…

Our lunches and dinners are served in banquet halls, and so far, all our meals have been far from your average hotel fare. Here’s a look at the Korean “bento” we had at lunch today…

Salted pollock roe, dried Korean anchovies, braised pine mushroom, pickled turnip, braised apricot and eggplant kimchi…

Red pepper paste broiled eel with egg-battered zucchini and Korean cabbage pancake…

Chicken breast salad with cucumber, onion and pine nuts…

Grilled beef short ribs with pumpkin and mushrooms…

Barbequed salmon with soy-braised abalone and pickled ginger shoot…

Fresh fruit…

And the speaker at today’s lunch? None other than Alibaba’s founder and chairman, Jack Ma! He gave such an honest, energetic and inspiring speech!!

Sorry for not using more Korean names, but all the descriptions were off an English menu we were provided.
