I can confidently say that Shilla hotel is one of the best hotels in Korea. Almost every time I visit Jeju, I stay at Shilla hotel and I must say the service only improves every time I visit. Every staff is extremely friendly, helpful and have smile on their face. Rooms are clean, bathroom is spacious and the view is... More

The Shilla was the venue for a family wedding and it lived up to everything we hoped it would. A beautiful location, first class and professional service from the management and their staff, plus food and entertainment of the same quality. A memorable stay was the feeling shared by everyone.

I travel to Jeju Island almost every year with my family and The Shilla Jeju is the only hotel I would go back. I've stayed at this hotel for about 20 years and am in love with everything here. I know it's a bit pricey to stay and eat here but so worth it. I also visited some different hotels... More

We are staying here now as our base to explore the incredible island of Jeju. This is a world-class luxury hotel, with stunningly beautiful grounds, an amazing indoor and outdoor pool area (with complimentary robes, slippers, and towels), beautiful sauna, and great kid facilities. There is a beautiful wooden pathway leading down to a gorgeous, scenic beach. The rooms are... More

My wife & I stayed here for a conference. As conference attendees, we got an extremely good room rate and a discount for breakfast during the conference. The hotel is set in beautiful grounds. There is a courtesy airport bus, but it makes limited trips each day. It is about an hour to the airport. There is an alternative Airport... More

The hotel itself has nice decoration, classy and artistic. Relaxing atmosphere with the nice song at the lobby. The room also has nice decoration, comfort bed and big bath tub. The garden is beautiful with flowers and the stairway lead to the ocean. Don't forget to visit the private ocean terrace cofee shop that you can feel the sea breeze... More

Staff were already waiting for us on arrival with our room keys all ready, no queuing whatsoever & luggages unloaded & taken to our room immediately, all within a matter of minutes. Key staff spoke English which made it easy for us to plan our activities. They helped with our itinerary & organised our personal English-speaking tour guide. The pool... More

Easy pick-up from airport and smooth transfer. Made very welcome on arrival. Room (corner suite) large and comfortable, if a little dated. Quick Wi-Fi. Reasonable gym and two large, resort style pools (so lap swimming very difficult). Lots of young families at hotel. Food OK, but main problem the price: eye-wateringly expensive drinks - coffee A$11, beer $20, bottle of... More

For those who have seen the deterioration in the quality of tourism in other parts of Asia, I fear the same is starting to happen in Jeju. Many of the same signs are there, and if the unimpeded marketing to tour groups from neighboring countries continues, then I suspect Jeju's and the Shilla's best days are already behind them. Smokers... More

This was a wonderful departure from our normal hotel accommodation. First class all the way. Western style rooms with many in-room amenities. High end soaps and lotions. Nice to have a separate shower stall. Also nice to have beautiful cups and saucers. Pool and grounds were fabulous. Our weather was not the best yet we could use the pools with... More
