Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas  

Through Aug. 31: Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas in Samseong-dong presents its summer premium bingsu (shaved ice dessert) at the Lobby Lounge, as well as To-go bingsu at Grand Deli on the hotel’s first floor. First launched last year, the Lobby Lounge's single-serving bingsu was released again this year thanks to its popularity among customers, accounting for about 50 percent of total bingsu sales. Grand Deli also presents to-go bingsu, which is conveniently available for take-out.
Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas Lobby Lounge showcases “Retro Mugwort Bingsu,” which evokes nostalgia through a heavenly blend of fragrant mugwort and sweet red beans, as well as “Mango Pearl Bingsu,” which is packed with fresh mango topped with delicious mango ice cream. Both are also available as single-serving bingsu. The price is 45,000 won ($40.30) for the Retro Mugwort Bingsu (27,000 won for single serving) and 52,000 won for Mango Pearl Bingsu (32,000 won for single serving), including tax and service charges.
Meanwhile, Grand Deli's convenient to-go bingsu offers two options including “Mango Bingsu,” with mango pearls on top of refreshing mango, and “Classic Bingsu,” featuring sweet red beans on velvety smooth iced milk. These are also available as a set that includes the hotel's PB coffee "D'GOLD." The price is 13,000 won for Classic Bingsu and 18,000 won for Mango Bingsu (including tax).

Hyatt Hotels in Korea
Ongoing: Six Hyatt hotels in Korea recently launched the Hybrid & Wellness Meeting package to elevate guests’ online and offline meeting experiences leading the social distancing trend amid the Covid-19 pandemic. The participating hotels are Andaz Seoul Gangnam, Grand Hyatt Seoul, Park Hyatt Seoul, Grand Hyatt Incheon, Park Hyatt Busan and Grand Hyatt Jeju. The meetings are different as they emphasize four key concepts: professional care and safety, communication through seamless and streamlined technology platforms, creative and excellent food and beverage service and a well-being program.
Hyatt International has supported Hyatt hotels worldwide as they became GBAC STAR certified with its global “Global Care & Cleanliness Commitment” strategic activities since early 2020. GBAC STAR is a performance-based accreditation program that helps facilities demonstrate that they have the work practices, procedures and protocols to prepare, respond, and recover from coronavirus outbreaks. All Hyatt hotels in Korea are GBAC STAR certified and are well-equipped with cleanliness and safety protocols as well as professional hygiene experts.  
Hyatt hotels in Korea provide various meeting venues of different sizes that can accommodate from 15 to more than 50 people. With a variety of meeting venue specifications, the meeting planner can easily accommodate any size meeting in accordance with the government's social-distancing guidelines with respect to Covid-19, as well as host on and offline hybrid meetings with seamless and streamlined technology platforms.
With a strong reputation for food and beverage excellence, Hyatt hotels in Korea are evolving their culinary offerings to amplify an exceptional experience by focusing on food customization using local, seasonal and organic ingredients. The hotels also offer take-away boxes for guests who cannot have meals on-site, featuring a variety of options such as Korean, Japanese, Western and finger food. Meanwhile, the hotels also carefully host coffee breaks by serving individually packed items.
Following the management’s philosophy that “We care for people so they can be their best”, the six Korea-based Hyatt hotels offer wellness programs for their attendees. There are two options: Miraval is a program that focuses on stretching and easing the mind and body, created by wellbeing experts from Miraval Resort; the creative program from Headspace offers mind relaxation techniques to enhance concentration by guiding people through a mediation with breathing and music.
