Maison Delano Seoul will bring a bustling cocoon to the affluent Gangnam district
SEOUL, South Korea, March 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Ennismore, the fastest-growing lifestyle hospitality company, announces the arrival of the first Maison Delano in Asia. In the heart of South Korea’s vibrant capital, Maison Delano Seoul will deliver a cocoon of convivial energy and sophisticated style.
Delano, which launched in Miami in 1995, was a pioneer in redefining the lifestyle resort concept, and has been long known as the most sought-after hotel for travelers looking for a bespoke experience. Maison Delano – brings the iconic brand to the city – respecting Delano’s history and soul: everything is effortless, personalized, and understated. A bustling cocoon where guests can be their true self, from having a wild night or taking the time to nourish their senses, all with the trust of ultimate discretion.
Set to open in 2026, Maison Delano Seoul will boast 81 extraordinary guestrooms and 52 branded residences and exceptional culinary and mixology experiences creating a vibrant hub for discerning guests. The hotel will also be home to a members’ club, a sunken garden courtyard, and a breathtaking indoor and outdoor infinity rooftop pool overlooking the tree canopy of Gangnam Park.
The design of Maison Delano Seoul will be rooted in crafted simplicity; using natural and raw materials with a focus on the simple compositions and the flow of movement, which create a choreography of discovery as guests journey through the hotel. In a reinterpretation of the traditional Korean Pavilion, the architects have created a “park façade” concept, cocooning the entire building façade and sunken courtyard in trees and greenery to create a connection with nature as it flows in and around the building.
Wellness will play a pivotal role within the hotel, bringing science and spirituality together with a holistic approach across physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, including the latest wellness technology, as well as a spa and a gym.
Chadi Farhat, Brand COO for Delano & Head of Middle East & Asia Pacific at Ennismore, said “Maison Delano is making its way to Asia to cater to a growing number of modern travelers who seek a sophisticated getaway and elevated experiences with creative energy like no others. We are incredibly excited to bring the Delano brand to Seoul, and curate a unique experience for guests in a city that is so rich in culture.“
