South Korea – Mohegan INSPIRE’s hotel gets five-star rating clearing path to full opening

By - 24 January 2024

Mohegan INSPIRE Entertainment Resort, has achieved a five-star hotel rating, following a rigorous assessment by the Korean Hotel Rating System, managed by the Korea Tourism Association (KTA), with criteria spanning from facility quality, hygiene and exceptional service standards, all areas where INSPIRE excelled. The award was the last step of being able to fully open its foreigner-only casino.

This distinguished recognition is the highest rating in the Korean system and underscores its commitment to excellence in luxury hospitality.

Situated on the picturesque Yeongjong Island in Incheon, Mohegan INSPIRE’s soft opening phase has already captivated guests with its three distinctively themed hotel towers – Forest Tower, Sun Tower and Ocean Tower. Each tower is an architectural embodiment of the island’s natural beauty, offering guests a serene and luxurious escape. The resort boasts 1,275 rooms, ranging from deluxe accommodations to extravagant villa suites, complemented by guest lounges, a premium spa, a fitness center and an indoor pool.

“This five-star rating for Mohegan INSPIRE is a testament to our relentless pursuit of excellence and our commitment to providing world-class experiences,” said Ray Pineault, CEO of Mohegan. “This milestone reflects our team’s dedication to upholding the highest standards in the industry, and it reinforces our position as a leader in global entertainment and hospitality.”

In the restaurant category, one of the cornerstones for the hotel rating, INSPIRE offers exclusive international culinary delights from around the world. These offerings include the first Eurasian Michael Jordan Steak House and MJ23 Sports Bar & Grill, along with Minagi, a contemporary Japanese restaurant and Hong Pan, a relaxed dining venue with an array of traditional Chinese delicacies, from Beijing duck to dim sum. INSPIRE is also home to Brasserie 1783, specializing in European-inspired fare and Garden Farm Café, a farm-to-table concept in addition to Chef’s Kitchen, a buffet restaurant and open kitchen concept with six live stations. At the Aurora Bar, located on Aurora, an immersive digital entertainment street, visitors can savor cocktails while enjoying spectacular performances. The Horizon Lounge, located in the Main Lobby between Forest and Sun Tower, welcomes guests with a captivating design and delectable snacks and crafty beverages amidst a beautiful backdrop. Each venue at INSPIRE is thoughtfully curated to offer sumptuous culinary journeys, reflecting Mohegan’s spirit of hospitality and unmatched attention to detail.

“I am delighted that INSPIRE’s hotel facility has officially achieved a five-star rating, and I would like to thank our team for their hard work in all areas, including facility, hospitality and operations management,” said Chen Si, President of Mohegan INSPIRE. “What incredible momentum going into this first quarter celebrating the casino’s grand opening – that’s how Mohegan continually sets the standard for integrated resorts that create unforgettable experiences.”

INSPIRE is poised to unveil its comprehensive Phase 1A facilities by mid-2024, marking a significant milestone in its growth journey. Early 2024 will witness the grand opening of INSPIRE Mall, a dynamic cultural hub fusing shopping, cuisine and attractions, alongside an exclusive casino tailored for international visitors. In the spring, INSPIRE will introduce an outdoor experiential space designed for all ages and families. A vast international food court showcasing an innovative concept will also debut alongside the country’s largest immersive content exhibition hall and a charming indoor children’s playground. These exciting additions are designed to solidify INSPIRE’s status as a premier destination, welcoming guests of all ages and backgrounds to indulge in a world where unparalleled entertainment meets diverse culture.
