If you’re living in Korea or plan to travel throughout the country, you may find yourself planning time to explore Busan. This coastal city is the second largest city in South Korea, and it offers so much to see and do. Many people choose to spend some time at the famous Haeundae Beach. Are you wondering where to stay in Haeundae? I recommend staying at the Novotel Ambassador Busan. Keep reading for a better look at my recent stay!
One of the best parts about staying at this hotel is the fact that it’s right on the beach. You can’t get closer than that! I live in a smaller city in South Korea, but I try to visit Busan a few times a year. My favorite area to visit is Haeundae Beach because it’s beautiful, the sand is comfortable (it’s not a rocky beach) and there are so many restaurants and shops located along the beach. I had easy access to the beach while staying here and also got to take advantage of a seaside view from my hotel room.
The room itself was so comfortable and it was spacious as well. As for the decor, it felt like a beach house! I was booked in an executive level room. This room not only looks and feels great — but it also has executive level privileges. This includes free access to the hotel pool, spa, and health services. Guests can also enjoy snacks, coffee, tea, and soft drinks all day long in the executive lounge area. In the evenings, complementary drinks and snacks are offered in the executive lounge during the 5:30-7:30 happy hour. Breakfast is also included in the price of the room. I felt that all of these perks really made the hotel experience that much better!
The room itself also had a fabulous view. The seating area overlooked the ocean, which made for a nice treat! This is the perfect spot to sit in the early mornings, if you’re looking to catch a sunrise from the hotel. Check out the view below!
When spending time in the executive lounge area, you can also take advantage of more beach and sea views. Again, I think this is one of the best parts about staying here — you might as well soak in the views if you’re visiting the Haeundae Beach area!
The Novotel Ambassador Busan also serves a great breakfast buffet. It has a mix of Western and Asian options. I think this is a good choice, as it seems a lot of business professionals stay here when in Busan for work, and many Korean families and couples visit from out of town. I really enjoyed the fresh fruit selection and I also loved that they had a healthy food station. The healthy food area was named Planet 21 Healthy Salad Corner. This is something that I find is so rare at most hotels. Novotel offers this in their hotels all around the world. It’s a great way to provide healthier options to those who want it — especially when it’s sometimes more challenging while on the road.
I had a great experience staying at the Novotel Ambassador Busan Hotel. There are many great perks, the rooms are really comfortable, and the customer service is great. If you’re wondering where to stay in Haeundae, I recommend checking out this hotel for your next beach trip. You’ll want to come back again!
