I love glasses. I’ve been wearing them for 20 years, and while I have toyed with the idea of getting LASIK multiple times, I just love the fashion aspect of glasses too much to give them up entirely; I’ve also never really been keen on wearing prescription-free eyeglasses as I think it’s kind of corny.

A couple of days ago, I received a question on one of my Instagram photos from fellow Seoulite Joni Els asking me this:

“What do you think your best ‘fancy hotel in Korea’ experience has been? …[I have] birthday plans so [I] want to have a local, treat yo’self birthday weekend.”

My short answer was pretty immediate, but it did have me thinking about the places I’ve stayed at thus far and how I would rank them. So, without further ado, here is my ranking of the lux hotels I’ve stayed at in Seoul (so far).

Hello, everyone! Recently there was a three-day weekend here in Korea, and I took advantage of the extra day to finally stay at the Grand Hyatt in Seoul!

Yes, after three (!) months of blog silence, I’ve returned! I’d been prepping for a new big job and new (not-so-big) apartment, and it took up most of my time and energy. HOWEVER, in this three-month span, I managed to squeeze in not one, not two, but *three* lux staycations, and my first one was at the Hyatt Regency on the gorgeous Jeju Island!

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to pass by the Kiehl’s Nature + the City exhibit as I was headed to lunch with Lauren. It was held in FIFTY FIFTY, an exhibition space tucked into a side street near Garosugil.

On May 25th the Conrad Hotel in Seoul opened its anticipated outdoor bar/restaurant called VVertigo (yes, with two V’s, if you follow the SNS adverts). If you all have read my Lux Staycation entries then you know that I adore this hotel. So for my friend Star’s birthday, we decided to take a trip to VVertigo and see if this newcomer lived up to the hype.

For the third and final installment of my Four Seasons Seoul series, I’ll talk about the facilities in the hotel: during my stay I visited the spa, the pool and the fitness center. I didn’t spend as much time taking care of myself as I did eating and drinking everything in sight, but I did enough to be able to write a little bit…

So, not only does the Four Seasons hotel in Seoul have stellar accommodations, but they also have great restaurants, too! In addition to the Executive Lounge, I also enjoyed lunch and dinner at Boccalino and Kioku restaurants, respectively. I’ll talk about all three in this post!

So twenty-five minutes after I left work, my taxi arrived at the Four Seasons and I walked into…sleekness.

Hello everyone! Long time, no see!

After being bogged down by sickness and tons of work, I’m finally able to post here for you all, and, boy, is this one a doozy! This post — or these posts…I haven’t quite decided yet — are going to be an undertaking just because I saw and did a good bit!
