This 130 year old Korean traditional house is reminiscent of an aristocratic Chosun Dynasty home. Standing in a square formation around the yard, the elegance of ancient noblemen can be felt in every crevice. The elegant pavilion, lotus pond, patio, and relaxing yellow-mud sauna heated with firewood enhance a healthy sleep on a natural jade ondol floor.

Your Host & The Team


“The world is now emerging beyond its focus on self comfort and moving towards the pursuit of true relaxation, a healthy body, and a peaceful mind. In today’s era of cold modernism, exact science and calculative digitalism, there is a fervent need for something more. We at RakKoJae believe that elegance of Korea and the warm-heartedness of the Korean people is the answer to this problem. RakKoJae is truly a breath of fresh air from ubiquitous hotels. We provide an unforgettable travel experience that is sure to nourish your inner spirit. If the comfort from the lines and empty spaces of a Hanok is the beautiful hardware, the elegance and warm-heartedness of Korea is the elegant software that fills it. We believe that these factors are what create the emotions unique to Korea that cannot be felt elsewhere in the world. With the passage of time, Hanok develop an old fashioned ambiance and grace. It is a home that is in harmony with nature, where even the wind and the moonlight come to rest. A Secret Retreat that can only be experienced in a Hanok awaits you.”
