Park Hyatt Seoul
Through Oct. 1: Chuseok, Korea’s traditional harvest festival and time of thanksgiving, is approaching. Park Hyatt Seoul celebrates a time of seasonal abundance and sharing with a selection of luxury gift sets from second-floor Italian restaurant Cornerstone. This year’s sets are created exclusively from hotel guests’ best-loved signature items, with highlights including Cornerstone Signature Fresh Meat Set, Woraksan Honeycomb Honey and liquor selections featuring traditional Korean spirit Gowoon Dar Baekja and Dom Pérignon Lenny Kravitz Limited Edition champagne. Gift set prices range from 140,000 to 450,000 won ($118 to $379), with a wide selection available.
The Cornerstone Signature Meat Set (350,000 won) features premium cuts of the finest Twobbul Hanwoo beef including chuck flap tail, rib eye, tenderloin and striploin, as well as whole peppercorns perfect for highlighting the tender texture and unmatched beef flavors. Each cut is elegantly presented in a box decorated with striking traditional Korean patterns, making it the ideal choice for those in search of a truly special Chuseok gift. New this year, the Damoon Dessert Plate Set (230,000 won) combines traditional ceramic influences with contemporary aesthetics to create stylish tableware ideal for entertaining special guests. Inspired by the forms of the moon, items are crafted from materials including traditional lacquer and brass, creating a substantial and unmistakably Korean modern aesthetic. Worak-Mountain Honey (140,000 won), containing genuine honeycomb, is a steady-selling favorite that offers an authentic taste of one of nature’s most generous gifts.
Carefully curated liquor sets come courtesy of Park Hyatt Seoul’s own sommelier. Traditional Korean liquor Gowoon Dar (300,000 won) is the world’s first beverage to be fermented from omija (Schisandra chinensis) berries, while Dom Pérignon Lenny Kravitz Limited Edition (450,000 won) is the fruit of a uniquely creative collaboration between the luxury champagne label and international music legend and champagne lover Lenny Kravitz. Other highlights include an Oil Diffuser Set (170,000 won) by Comfort Zone, the Italian spa brand used at Park Club Spa, and a variety of hotel accommodations and food and dining vouchers, presenting inspired options to suit every taste.
All prices are inclusive of tax. Orders can be placed with Cornerstone by phone or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you purchase 10 sets or more, a 10 percent discount may be applied. Inquiries must be made before placing the order.
