Who’s getting excited for the Winter Olympics 2018? Here’s our countdown!
It will be held here in Pyeongchang, South Korea and infrastructure and logistical preparations had been going on since. Alpensia Resort is one of the major facilities hosting the Winter Olympics 2018 so my family vacationed at the resort on a summer and a winter before all the “busy-ness” of the Winter Olympics gets in our way. The name ‘Alpensia’ is a combination of the words ‘Alpen,’ (German term for ‘the Alps’), ‘Asia,’ and ‘Fantasia’—together they reflect the resort’s scenic view of the ‘fantastic Alps of Asia.’
The complex has 3 luxurious hotels for winter wonderland pleasure! The resort actually operates whole year round and offers equally beautiful landscape that naturally changes as each season unfolds.
Holiday Inn Resorts at Alpensia
Holiday Inn Resorts is one of the hotels in the Alpensia Resort. I loved our stay here on a summer. If you have children like us, take the Kids Suite and you will love it! Our children had their own cozy room. The hotel management went the extra mile to make us one happy family. Check out more in my post here: Holiday Inn Resorts
Holiday Inn & Suites
So what’s the difference between Holiday Inn Resorts and Holiday Inn & Suites? The Holiday Inn Resorts has all the usual hotel services. The Holiday Inn & Suites is a condominium type accommodation. My husband got a 2-bedroom unit with a balcony. Since we went here on a winter, our balcony was always filled with snow:
The suite had the loveliest view. We woke up to snowy slopes, signalling for us to have energetic start each day.
At night, our friends gathered in our suite to warm ourselves with wine (and hot choco for the kids) before we would call it a day.
What are the other attractions of Holiday Inn & Suites?
Aside from the balcony which would be perfect for Spring, Summer and Fall, you get a spacious living room, dining and kitchen. You can cook and prepare your own dishes! Kitchen has all the cooking and dining wares you need. I requested for additional wine glasses.
The Intercontinental Hotel
The Intercontinental Hotel is the most luxurious among the three hotels at Alpensia. I would have wanted to stay here on another trip but we haven’t got the chance to travel back there again. We freely went around Intercon on our holidays there.
The view at the back of the Intercon is more amazing!
Even if you can’t make it to Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics, the hotels at Alpensia are worth to stay in. My family liked it and I even want to go back again!
