Most of the hotels on the island are located in either one of the two major cities (Jeju City and Seogwipo City), as well as in the Jungmun Tourist Complex.

RESORT

Resorts in Jeju Island are located outside of the cities and are patronized by people who have relaxation and rejuvenation in mind. Luxury resorts are expansive and are often connected to hotels, so you have the advantage of staying in a quiet, private house while having all the benefits of a high-end hotel at your fingertips. Kitchens and kitchenettes are a distinguishable factor of resorts, so you won’t even need to leave the grounds.

Next to hotels, pensions are the most widely available type of accommodation. These are privately owned lodging businesses that you can find on sites like Airbnb. There are generally two types of pensions that you can book: a room or a house.If booking a room, it may be anywhere from a hotel-style pension that comes with convenient amenities, to a simple room in an obscure building.

Guesthouses offer a bed in a dormitory-type facility at affordable prices. You can rent a bed in a shared room, or some places offer private rooms for small groups of travelers.

The modern minbak is almost identical to a pension, but the traditional minbak is quite different from any other experience. A traditional minbak is a bed and breakfast establishment. You are offered a room in the house of the owner and meals may also be provided for an extra cost. Minbak may be difficult to book if you do not speak Korean, as owners typically do not speak English, and reservations are mostly done by phone.

UNIQUE ACCOMMODATIONS: TRADITIONAL-STYLE HOUSE

Preserving history by restoring traditional-style houses is a growing trend on the island, and you’ll find many renovated pensions that have the look and feel of traditional houses. Some are over a hundred years old, and owners have maintained much of the original architecture and building materials.
