Despite the location on the bustling Gyeongpo Beach, the room was very quiet and we didn’t hear any noises from other guests or the people outside.

The crown jewel of the Skybay in Gangneung is its infinity pool on the 20th floor. It’s a lovely rooftop area with sun chairs and a pool bar with a selection of cocktails, beers and some food you can have right next to the pool. Besides the infinity pool, there’s also a jacuzzi and an indoor pool. On the same floor, there’s a state-of-the-art fitness center with views of the stunning beach as well.

Gyeongpo Beach

The hotel is located right across from beautiful Gyeongpo Beach in Gangneung. The city in Gangwon-do Province received a lot of attention during the 2018 Winter Olympics as various games were held here. The beach still showcases a large display of the Olympic rings right at the beach.

Gyeongpo Beach is famous for its stunning sunrise and tranquil moonlight. There are other popular attractions nearby, including the pine forest and beautiful wild roses. You can even rent a boat and head out to go ocean fishing.

Dinner at Soirée grill & bar

There are two restaurants at the property: Soirée grill & bar and Restaurant ①ne. The former is open for lunch and dinner and offer a Korean-style buffet with a few Western foods, like spaghetti, available.They also have alcoholic drinks and snacks on the menu after 10 PM. Because of the hotel’s location next to the ocean, you will be able to try some of South Korea’s regional seafood dishes fresh from the water. This includes sashimi (raw fish) and a variety of shellfish.

The Breakfast Buffet

Breakfast is served on the lobby floor at Restaurant ①ne from 6 to 10. The buffet was very good and a lot of different foods were available. I especially liked the bread and pastries available as they really tasted like back home, rather than the usually too sweet breads you often get in South Korea. A chef prepares breakfast eggs in different varieties right in front of the guests.
