What is unique about a Korean Spa (Jiim-Jil-Bang)?
Traditional Korean bathhouses have been an essential part of contemporary South Korean culture for hundreds of years. Jjim-jil-bang, which means “heated rooms,” are where locals come to relax, unwind, hang out with friends and family, and engage in unique health and beauty rituals that go beyond a quick massage.
Korean spas are known for their combination of natural and traditional ingredients, such as crystals, salt, stone, and wood, with heat and cold, which both aid in the body’s healing and revitalization processes.
Within a Jjim-jil-bang, you can expect to find warm, heated floors in the communal (co-ed) relaxation spaces, where customers are encouraged to walk bare feet, rest, and experience the different saunas. Customers are provided with a uniform when they check in, which must be worn in these communal areas. There are also same-sex only areas within the facility, where you can experience the hot tubs and pools. If partaking in the baths, customers are required to remove all clothing in these areas.
Here at Bay Spa, you have the ability to build your own package of all that we have to offer. You get full access to treatments such as body scrubs, aromatherapy, coconut & milk body wraps, revitalizing seaweed wraps, various sauna rooms, and so much more!
