SEOUL, Dec. 13 (Yonhap) -- Signiel Seoul, the hotel at the 123-story skyscraper of South Korean retail giant Lotte, has been named the best new luxury hotel in Asia in a reader survey by a U.S. travel magazine, the company said Wednesday.

Signiel Seoul was followed by Park Hyatt in Bangkok and Conrad Bora Bora Nui in French Polynesia, according to Lotte Hotel & Resorts. The survey was conducted online and offline from January to August.

Lotte Hotel Seoul in downtown Seoul was also named the Best Hotel in South Korea for a sixth consecutive year, it said.
