“Konjiam Resort(Winter holidays in Fantabulous Korea!).”
Reviewed 25 December 2011

We arrvd fm Alpensia ski resort @ Dong Seoul bus terminal. Walked across the street past the Ganbyeon train station to the opposite side of the rd to catch the public bus svc 1113-1 to Konjiam bus terminal. Journey took abt 55mins. Fm here, we took a cab to the resort(abt 12mins ride).

This resort is quite secluded in tt it is off the main rd. A few bldgs or rather apmts bef we arrvd @ the main bldg. There's the East & West wings. We stayed on the 12th fl on the West wing. Very nice scenery of the ski slopes. Rooms r a little small but very new & nice. This resort is owned by LG. Restns r located on 2 diff floors(2nd-Asian buffet & Korean on 3rd floor) on annex bldg. Ground floor has burger & hotdogs stands. Spa & mart r located @ basement. Not really much for variety if ur not into skiing. Fyi, the ski remain open till late(abt 3am!).

This hotel costs double of what we paid @ Holiday Inn Alpensia. A normal room costs abt 240,000/nite.

We took a cab(u can hv the concierge to book a cab for u - takes abt 10mins wait) to Everland wh costs abt 28,000KRW/30-35mins ride.

We took a cab fm here to Seongnam town for a walkabout & dinner. Lots to see as it's quite a big town. Journey took abt 50mins.

There's a free shuttle just outside the main entrance of the resort to Konjiam bus terminal(abt 10 mins ride). Plenty of shops & restns/cafes here. Pls note tt the latest shuttle in the morn is @ 11am. The next is @ 1pm.

Likewise, the free shuttle wl take u back to Konjiam bus terminal where u can catch 1113-1 back to Dong Seoul bus terminal(not directly but opposite the Ganbyeon train station - exact position as when u board for Konjiam bound). On rtn back, this bus goes thru Jamsil area(Lotte World).

Fm Ganbyeon train station, we took the Green line back to Myungdong(Eujiro 1).



Cheers!.

My family and I (2 adults and 2 children) booked a Prime room with a double bed and a single bed, kitchen facilities, bath with standing shower and separate toilet. Clear and good size room with centrally controlled system for lights and air-conditioner. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. Staff were polite but not very conversant in English. We seemed to be the only family in the resort. It was very quiet around the resort. There was no in-room safe. Bath towels were also too small for adult. Their restaurants served good mixture of Korean and other Asian food. This resort is very quiet during non-peak session (e.g. Nov). The ski house operates in early Dec and not in late Nov as stated in their website. Before you make a reservation, it is advisable to call and check it out so as to avoid any disappointment. The hotel provides in-house ceramic/pottery making session but reservation is required the day before.

Room Tip: Good to take a room facing the ski slopes during winter session. The Prime room (with a double bed a...

Was in Konjiam Resort last October 26 on my first day in South Korea. Beautiful Resort ! The unit we got has 2 bedrooms, one the regular kind, the other bedding was the futon type - like in the ryokans of Japan. Had a good night's on the regular beds , too tire to set up the futons after a long flight. Breakfast at the Mirasia Restaurant is adequate , they serve both continental and asian type fare, like the Japanese gyudon, they also serve fresh fruits.
Highlight of the Resort is the beautiful outdoor terrace beside the lobby, with the autumn colors as a backdrop, really really gorgeous.

This is a resort for families. Inside each suite, there are two rooms, one room is of Western decor which has a bed with night tables, a dresser, an ensuite shower room but no TV. It is for the parents. The other room is of Japanese style with tatami (no bed). And this room is for the children. Open kitchen equipped with a double induction cooker, a range hood and all necessary cooking utensils, even a rice cooker. Dining table with chairs in the dining area. A sofa with a coffee table and a TV in the sitting area. There is a family shower room and a balcony. One important appliance is missing, i.e. a hair blower.
The place is very quiet especially at night. You will not find any staff in your building if it is not the main one. There is a walking distance from the buildings to the main building.
Convenience stores and restaurants are to be found in the resort. Free WiFi is available at the main lobby of all buildings, however, it might not work.
And, there is a water park nearby. It is very new and well equipped under efficient management.
