Why we like it
Exuding luxury at every turn, our favourite spot at the Hilton Gyeongju is the outdoor pool, complete with private cabanas to lounge in and a water playground for the little ones. That’s after a spot of lunch at in-house Genji, with views of the Japanese Garden. Or for a more intimate affair, choose the tempting Silkroad with its Cantonese and Sichuan delights.
