Dragon Hill Spa & Resort | 드래곤힐스파
The Dragon Hill Spa may be Korea’s best-known jjimjilbang, or Korean spa. Essentially, it’s a seven-story relaxation center, with various hot tubs and pools, an assortment of saunas, massage rooms, a fitness center, sleeping rooms, and even a small theater. The first floor alone has a traditional Korean charcoal sauna, a traditional pine firewood sauna, a yellow earth steam room, a crystal salt sauna, a hinoki forest bath, an ice room, a spa, an outdoor pool and sauna, and more. The spa is so well known that it’s been featured in CNN and the New York Times. It’s extremely foreigner-friendly as well—a plus for those new to the Korean sauna scene.
There’s a food court in the spa, and even bigger collection of restaurants in the nearby I’Park Mall.
The spa is right next to I’Park Mall, one of Seoul’s best-known shopping centers.
The sprawling Yongsan Electronics Market is a short walk away.
