You may not be able to travel to North Korea these days but South Korea's still game.

Just the other day the Hilton Namhae Golf & Spa Resort opened up and it's no regular Hilton. While this is the fourth Hilton in the country, its the first of Hilton's Worldwide Resort brand, meaning its huge and ultra-luxe.

Aside from the 170 all-suite and villa estate, the focal point of this hotel is its  seafront 18-hole golf course (that can be played year-round) and its funky clubhouse which was designed to resemble "an unfolding prism, which houses restaurants, bars and a large spa with a panoramic ocean view."

There's also a private marina on-hand with a yacht service and water sports activities.

As for the rooms, all the suites have two bedrooms, common areas and can fit up to four golfers or families with children. The amenities are skimpy either with 42-inch flat screen TVs, small private pools, and courtyard gardens.

We had to doublecheck to make sure this was afterall, a Hilton. However, the place is so new, there aren't any real photos on its website. Just a rendering, but we think you get the picture.
