NEWLY IMPROVED (Nov 2021):
Modeled after traditional ultra-heated Korean hot rooms, our enhanced Bul-Ga-Ma rooms are the only ones of their kind in the country. Powered by state-of-the-art equipment, our Bul-Ga-Ma rooms are still heated by intense natural wood fire, but without the unwanted byproducts, such as excess CO2 and ash, for a pure and thorough detox experience.* Combined with our special yellow archer fomentation stones and a new capability of infusing the heated air with medicinal herbs such as Korean mugwort, our Bul-Ga-Ma rooms create a unique atmosphere of serenity and healing as natural released elements promote rapid detoxification.*
While others may take shortcuts in warming their Bul-Ga-Ma, Gangnam Spa proudly maintains this more intensive form of creating heat from wood fire to deliver an authentic experience of the highest quality.
The Jjim-Jil-Bang is a staple of the Korean spa and sauna culture. It’s a common area space where guests can relax before, in between, and after sweating it out in the Bul-Ga-Ma or sauna. Everyone going to the Jjim-Jil-bang leaves the outside world behind, and enters this shared space with the common goal of rest and relaxation.
Gangnam Spa offers a luxurious reimagining of the Jjim-Jil-Bang with Jade & heated flooring, an industry first, for a uniquely premium yet still traditional Korean spa and sauna experience. Whether visiting solo or with friends and family, you’ll be sure to find space for peace and relaxation in our Jjim-Jil-Bang.
A more private space to disconnect and relax, our Topaz Caves are designed specifically to fit one person. They provide just the right amount of privacy and seclusion – you may easily find yourself dozing off into a relaxation-filled nap! And with over 20 individual Topaz Caves available, you’ll be able to enjoy the cozy privacy of a Topaz Cave during your visit.
Our Topaz Caves were crafted with materials containing minerals that are believed to help relieve stress and ease mental tension.*
Our high-tech Nano Clay Room synergizes the natural benefits of yellow clay and cutting-edge radiator heating technology to help with blood circulation, promote metabolism, and combat fatigue, all while delivering a deeply detoxifying sauna experience.*
A patented technology using nano carbon yarn twisted into 3,000 strands, this exclusive nano carbon far-infrared radiator in our Nano Clay Room is over twice as effective and efficient than regular carbon or wire. This advanced radiator gently saturates the body with the revitalizing and radiant heat energy of far-infrared rays.*
A luxurious hot foot bath with water jets that gently massage the feet and helps promote circulation and provide comfort to an area that is prone to heavy daily use and fatigue.*
Oxygen: essential for human life, and the star of our O2 Lounge, where you can discover the refreshing benefits of oxygen therapy as part of our unique luxury Korean spa and sauna experience.
The O2 Lounge contains an air oxygen concentration of up to 80%, powered by a high purity oxygen generator. Each oxygen-rich inhale saturates red blood cells and promotes better circulation, creating a calming yet invigorating sense of well-being.* Just 30 minutes of oxygen therapy in our O2 Lounge may provide benefits such as stress reduction, headache relief, and boosted energy levels.*
Himalayan salt contains traces of minerals that are said to be effective in maintaining healthy blood pressure and promoting healthy respiratory conditions; these minerals, such as Calcium, Iron, and Zinc, are said to also help aid digestion and alleviate muscle tension and skin ailments.* The Himalayan Salt Room combines the heat and humidity of a sauna with natural salt base rocks that are nearly 350 million years old. The hot environment allows for the minerals of the salt to be better delivered to the skin and body.*
The invigorating cold temperature of the Igloo Ice Room will create a sense of alertness, as well as help to close pores, smooth skin, and enhance skin elasticity.* The cold temperature may also be therapeutic and help relieve pain by working to release muscle knots.*
Moving between hot saunas and the cold Ice Room may further help to increase skin elasticity, improve blood circulation, boost the body’s immune system, and create a refreshing sense of simultaneous alertness and relaxation.*
Our spacious restaurant and dining area offers a wide selection of food, snacks, and beverages for you to enjoy, so you can feel comfortable and satisfied throughout your visit, whether it be for a few hours or the whole day!
Saunas are believed to help with various health problems and alleviate muscle-related pains and aches.* Enjoying our dry and steam saunas may have other benefits such as improved blood circulation and rejuvenated skin.* Dry and steam saunas are available in both men and women's locker room areas.
Enjoying the showers & baths within the "wet area" is a central part of the Korean spa & sauna experience. Our gender-separated wet areas are luxuriously spacious, rigorously maintained, and, of course, appointed with high-quality materials for a pristine & refreshing experience.
Both men and women's wet areas include standing and sitting showers. Shampoo and body wash are available in each shower booth for your convenience.
A quintessential Korean sauna ritual, soaking and moving between our hot & cold baths will melt stress away, soothe an aching body, and reinvigorate your mind.* Vigorously filtered and regularly monitored & cleaned to exceed public health standards, our baths just might become part of your new favorite self-care routine!
**Guests must shower & be completely nude before entering any bath. Please rinse off in between using different baths. Bathing suits or clothes may not be worn in the baths.**
