The second-largest city in South Korea can now brag about snagging a new Western behemoth of a hotel. Yesterday, Park Hyatt Busan welcomed guests to the thoughtfully designed tower, creating a new area for wining and dining.

Overlooking the Busan Marina and surrounding beaches, the multi-purpose complex will play host to the luxury hotel that neighbors a few residential towers, some retail and office space. Each of the buildings, while very modern in design, use traditional Korean architecture to incorporate natural elements that mimic the ocean or flower petals.

With 269 rooms to choose from, the folks over at Hyatt have kept those travelers that want a little space to stretch out. There are 69 suites--23 Park, 43 Executive, 2 Diplomatic and 1 Presidential anyone can find a room that's just right. Regardless of choice, guests can gaze out the floor-to-ceiling windows and relax in the natural wood and textile layout by Tokyo-based designer Super Potato.
