The E-Land Group announced on July 22 that it has completed part of the room renovations in its Pyeongchang Kensington Flora Hotel in Gangwon Province and is holding an Olympic-themed special exhibition at the hotel.

Kensington Flora Hotel, which has Korea’s biggest French-themed garden, has renovated and opened 87 rooms with a French theme, and will complete the renovation of the remaining 306 rooms by the end of Sept.

In celebration of the room renovations of the hotel, it will hold a special exhibition that allows visitors to see the history of the Olympic Games from the London Olympics in 1908 to the Sochi Winter Olympics last year, and also a “Revenues D'ailleurs” exhibition.

In the special exhibition, there is a collection of 100 monumental Olympic items, such as two Argentine gold medals won at the Olympic Games in men’s soccer, Michael Phelps’ swim cap that he wore when he won eight gold medals at the Beijing Summer Olympics, and Usain Bolt’s spike shoes at the Olympic trials in 2012.

In celebration of the 130 years of diplomatic relations between Paris and Seoul this year, the Revenues D'ailleurs exhibition, which is jointly arranged by French cartoonist Samir Dahmani and Artist Yoon Bo-kyung, will also be held from July 25 to Nov. 30.

Moreover, Kensington Flora Hotel will offer a “Celebrate All of Us” package, which provides a superior room and French breakfast buffet tickets, for the price of 159,000 won (US$138), including tax and service fees, from Aug. 24 to Sept. 24. The first five customers that make reservations by the end of this month will be offered Kensington’s signature scented Soohyang candle as a gift.
