According to the architects, they wanted the glamping site to be a place where guests can fully immerse themselves in Jeju’s incredible landscape. With a wide walking path connecting the guest rooms, the layout was meant to provide visitors with the strong feeling of community. The individual huts are all spaced strategically to give guests privacy while still fostering the idea of people coming together to enjoy the outdoor experiences.

The main lodging on site is comprised of seven individual huts in shapes reminiscent of modernized pyramids. The pyramid lodges come in four sizes: loft, twin, suite and pool villa. The interiors are bright and airy with minimal furnishings. Most of the cottages have a large wooden deck for dining al fresco or just taking in the fresh air. A fun feature is the open-air rooftop bathrooms, with a large tub to enjoy a bit of star gazing while enjoying a warm bubble bath.
For those looking for more of a vintage atmosphere, there is also the option of staying in one of the three reformed Airstreams. The three RVs are each a different size and have been completely renovated into modern guestrooms. They have built-on wooden decks to enjoy the beautiful views that surround the campsite.
The glamping site also offers a barbecue restaurant and café located in the large reception, which features a green-covered rooftop with an observation deck. Within Around Follie, there are plenty spaces for events and cultural programs year-round, another feature aimed at bringing the community together.
