Luxury hotels have released a variety of unique programs and packages designed to provide guests with chances to enjoy culture and art.

They are offering large-scale media art exhibitions and in-room operas, and even a library filled with a variety of books, in response to growing demand from guests and visitors for richer cultural experiences during their stay.

The integrated resort complex Paradise City is showcasing a grand cinematic audiovisual media art exhibition, "INSCAPE ― Voyage to Hidden Landscape" by Herman Kolgen, a Canadian artist renowned for his multifaceted multimedia works.

The exhibition is being held until Feb. 6 in five of the resort's major venues, including Paradise Art Space, and shows eight of the artist's works, including a new work that is being exhibited for the first time anywhere.

The new work, "BACTERIUM," reflects the characteristics of the coronavirus and the pattern in which the COVID-19 pandemic occurred, according to the resort.
