Your own private pool next to a warm fireplace and a romantic bed. Too tired in the morning to walk down the stairs from the bedroom loft to the kitchen and living room? Just take the slide. Recreational opulence like this lies a few hours east of Seoul, as the area rapidly preps for the 2018 Winter Olympics. Pendant House is the weekend villa retreat you want to stay at, if you decide to go frolicking at nearby Alpensia Resort, with its waterpark in the summer or ski hill in the winter, plus year-round casino. Just south of there is also Yongpyong Resort and all of its summer stuff to do, ranging from golf to paintball, ATV trails and more.
