After three seasons, netizens still can’t get enough of Netflix‘s Korean reality show, Single’s Inferno. Like the Western show Love Island, the series follows a group of singles looking for love.
The difference between the many dating shows worldwide is that the Single’s Inferno contestants’ time was split between “Inferno” (a secluded island) and “Paradise” (a luxurious, off-island resort).
The island is Saseungbong-do, located in Incheon’s Ongjin County, but it isn’t as deserted as you might think.
According to the Incheon tourism website, the private, uninhabited island, which has been dubbed “Sado,” can be visited by a boat that regularly runs in the peak season. The boat fare costs ₩100,000 KRW (about $ 83.50 USD) if you want to go alone or ₩15,000 KRW (about $ 12.50 USD).
The island has been used for many variety shows, such as Running Man. There are a variety of activities available, including swimming, camping, fishing, clam-digging, and viewing a picture-perfect sunset.
By getting to know each other and competing in games, the cast had the chance to escape “Inferno” and go to “Paradise,” a hotel that epitomized what luxury is with room service, pools, and more.
As the contestants traveled via helicopter to get there, it was no doubt away from the island and is actually called the hotel “Paradise City” and is near Incheon International Airport, about an hour from Seoul.
The main hotel lobby and amenities were not shown during the episodes, but they are definitely beautiful. It has a beautiful lobby full of shops, restaurants, casinos, and other things to do.
Surprisingly, the hotel is not as expensive as you’d think, with most rooms costing an average of $ 450 per night.
Yet, if you really want to experience luxury and live the life of the Single’s Inferno contestants, then the “must-visit” room is the one seen in the show and housed some iconic moments between the likes of Oh Jin Taek and Kang So Yeon and other couples.
The room is called the “Grand Deluxe Pool Villa.” As seen on the show, it is the epitome of luxury with several rooms, including a dining room, a large bedroom, and access to a private pool.
Of course, something this luxurious comes with a huge price tag! A single-night stay in this iconic room will cost ₩20.0 million KRW (about $ 16,700 USD) with access to all the facilities and a dedicated butler.
It is a huge price and is probably out of many netizens’ budgets. Even a simple trip to the hotel or island doesn’t seem that bad just to have a look. It isn’t just the perfect place for fans of the show, as the hotel has been the center for many celebrity visits from BLACKPINK‘s Rosé…
…and it was even where BIGBANG‘s Taeyang and actress Min Hyo Rin held their wedding reception. Even MAMAMOO filmed there for their “mumumumuch” music video!
As the perfect place for any true netizen, it may see a surge in bookings as the show’s popularity continues to rise. You can read more about the finale of Single’s Inferno 3 below.
