Phoenix Jeju Island Resort [휘닉스제주 섭지코지], opened in 2008, is a resort located on Cape Seopjikoji [섭지코지] on Jeju Island’s [제주도] Southeast Coast. It consists of several buildings that houses lodging, restaurants, a museum and an art gallery. This resort is located in the village of Goseong-ri [고성리] that is part of the city Seogwipo [서귀포시] on Jeju Island.

The Bangdupo (Pangdupo) Lighthouse is located on the resort’s premises, and only a couple of steps away from The Glass House [글라스하우스], designed by renowned Japanese architect Tadao Ando. On The Glass House’s second floor is one of the resort’s most well-known restaurants, Restaurant Mint [휘닉스아일랜드 민트]; a restaurant that was supposed to be located in Spain in Legend of the Blue Sea.

Ando also designed the Genius Loci Yumin Art Gallery, which currently (as of 27 Nov 2021) showcases Art Nouveau glass craft work.

Club House Agora is the resort’s members’ clubhouse with its trademark glass pyramid was designed and named by Swiss architect Mario Botta (마리오 보타) in collboration with Seoul-based samoo architects. Constructed in 2008 with a Jeju stone finish, its name means ‘gather (모이다)’ in Greek, or ‘square of conversation (대화의 광장)’. On the clubhouses website, they also refer to the poem ‘Moon after the gust of wind/Gwangpungjewol (광풍제월/光風霽月)’ written by Chinese poet 황정견/黃庭堅 (1045-1105). It says: “The coolness of mind and cleanliness are like the wind on a clear day and the moon on a rainy day (“마음결이 시원하고 깨끗함이 마치 맑은 날의 바람과 비 갠 날의 달과 같다”고 한데서 유래하였습니다).”

In 2019, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism —announced through the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO)— selected Cape Seopjikoji as one of the ‘100 Must-Visit Spots in Korea’ for 2019-2020 and it takes up place 10 in CNN’s 2019 list of 50 beautiful places to visit in South Korea.
