Treatment, Reservations, and Appointments
A Korean Spa is unlike any other spa. It is a mixture of an ancient bathhouse immersed in tradition and culture, with the West’s getaway filled with indulgence and relaxation. At Wi Spa, we offer a combination of both.
Behind the luxurious walls of Wi Spa, is a slice of the homeland merged with the new land: a much-enjoyed $18 million jimjilbang, a Korean-style sauna, and a full-service restaurant featuring delicacies from the native land.
This recent cultural phenomenon now deemed as the “Korean spa experience” grew out of a centuries-old tradition where families planned weekly visits to public bath-houses to scrub and be scrubbed.
In the new land, the necessity of going to a public bathhouse for scrubbing has transformed into a luxury and exhilarating daily experience with experts providing the services to all Koreans and non-Koreans alike.
But for many who have not grown up in Korea, nor had family speak of the olden times, here are some guidelines:
A Korean spa is not for the modest.
Upon arrival, you will be given a key (in the form of a wristwatch) for your locker number, as well as your ID for the rest of your visit. You will also be given a towel and a shirt by the front desk clerk. At your specific gender level, additional towels, bathrobe, and shorts will be given. You will then put everything away in your locker and change into the shirt and short provided.
To enter the spa and sauna on the gender-segregated floors, we ask that no clothing be worn. Bathing suits are not allowed in the spas. Please shower before entering the tubs. Most guests wrap themselves in the towels provided.
The current most popular service for women is the Buff and Aroma Massage. For $100, you experience the Buff – a traditional Korean technique that exfoliates and lifts impurities and dead skin from your body. In addition, a soothing aroma oil massage will stimulate blood circulation and soothes your muscles.
We ask that you wear the shirt and shorts provided when using any of the co-ed facilities. Please visit the exclusive saunas in the Jimjilbang the bulgama, salt, clay, jade, and ice. Also, please taste authentic Korean cuisines from our full-service restaurant, and enjoy the sun and fresh air on our rooftop terrace.
When tired, please utilize our sleeping areas in both the Jimjilbang and the gender levels for peace and tranquility. We also provide free wi-fi should you decide to check your email, magazines, and books for the curious mind.
All charges during your stay are made through your key and will be paid at checkout.
Should you need anything else, please ask our staff. We would be happy to accommodate your needs and making your experience at Wi Spa a wonderful one!
