Your Host & The Team


“The world is now emerging beyond its focus on self comfort and moving towards the pursuit of true relaxation, a healthy body, and a peaceful mind. In today’s era of cold modernism, exact science and calculative digitalism, there is a fervent need for something more. We at Rakkojae believe that elegance of Korea and the warm-heartedness of the Korean people is the answer to this problem. Rakkojae is truly a breath of fresh air from ubiquitous hotels. We provide an unforgettable travel experience that is sure to nourish your inner spirit. If the comfort from the lines and empty spaces of a Hanok is the beautiful hardware, the elegance and warm-heartedness of Korea is the elegant software that fills it. We believe that these factors are what create the emotions unique to Korea that cannot be felt elsewhere in the world. With the passage of time, Hanok develop an old fashioned ambiance and grace. It is a home that is in harmony with nature, where even the wind and the moonlight come to rest. A Secret Retreat that can only be experienced in a Hanok awaits you.”


Young Hwan Ahn - Master Carpenter and Human National Treasure

Young H. Ahn is a Master Carpenter and Human National Treasure who’s personal love for Korea’s hanok, traditional houses, led him to start the first Korean traditional home experience in the early 90s. Ahn’s seminal work in both preserving and celebrating Korean architecture is reflected in the two properties he created, RakKoJae Seoul and RakKoJae Hahoe, which are now run by his son, Michael Ahn. Both properties have received international acclaim and the value of Hahoe Folk Village was recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site shortly after RakKoJae Hahoe opened. Captivated by the ability of a hanok to bring comfort and tranquility, Ahn started a carpentry school that promotes and preserves the ancient traditions of Korea’s craftsmanship.

"The world is now emerging beyond its focus on self comfort and moving toward the pursuit of true relaxation, a healthy body and a peaceful mind. In today’s era of cold modernism, exact science and calculative digitalism, there is a fervent need for something more,” says Ahn

The Latest Reviews from Our Guests

Thank you for a fabulous time!

We returned from Koh Jum Beach villas two weeks ago now and are still dreaming of being there! Thank you so much for organising our holiday and for answering our endless questions. The accommodation was superb and the island was amazing. Again, thank you for a fabulous time! I will be looking at your website for similar accommodation.

Journey Au Fil du Mekong

Un énorme merci pour l’organisation du voyage. Excellent travail. Tout était parfait: sélection des hôtels, navettes, horaires .. Un petit plus le transfert en jonque entre The Jahan et The Island Lodge! Excellent travail de préparation de votre part. Continuez comme ca.

Review for Kumai

Everything about your company and my cruise was fantastic and the food and kindness of the crew was just unreal.. thank you for offering such a wondrous experience and if you sell those brown Wow Borneo t-shirts the staff was wearing I’d love to buy one and advertise for you in California! I’m going to show all my pics and tell about the trip to all my students ( I’m a high school teacher) and I hope some will be as fortunate as I to take a trip with you. Again, thank you for an unbelievable 4 days.

“Located in the heart of a rural UNESCO World Heritage village, and surrounded by a pine forest, mountains and a river, this 4 hanok (room) traditional Korean property is an inspirational and poetic experience.”

Kim, the discoverer.
