it is an unusual experience . We've stayed in the Spa World hotel for 2 nights to take advantage of the spa facilities - and to be able to go in-out whenever we liked - allowed us the most flexibility as the spas are open till 6am in the morning. The hotel rooms were very pleasantly clean and modern and... More

It's located in shinsekai which is considered a "dangerous" neighbourhood, so don't expect a luxurious spa experience. Place is a bit aged, staff is not friendly and cannot speak English, the redemption is the cheap admission fee. You can pay extra for the stone spa facility. Overalls, a fun place only if you want something local and kitschy.

A trip to Japan would not be complete without onsen (hot springs). It is recommended to shower first at the shower area with the shampoo and soap provided before entering the onsen and never go into the onsen with your towel on, as it is considered impolite in Japan. If you have any small tattoos on your body, do cover... More

We had 9 days in Osaka. In the end of the trip, we pretty exhausted! Lots of walking lots of mental efforts to deal with. So the last day of our stay we went to the Spa World. Unlike the UK, this is very cheap price to pay for using all facilities. So have to give 5 star just for... More

It’s easy to find, and the reviews and website are somewhat promising. However, I ended up walk away before I even set foot in it. Its sights are in both Japanese and English, but when I tried to get some information from its information desk in English, the young receptionist called三角あかり(something close to this, she tried to hide her nametag...

As a westerner I don't get to visit many Spas such as this. Spa World in particular was AMAZING! Enjoyed the hotel western rooms (very comfortable), Loved the size of the spa (huge), different types of spa rooms (numerous) and the water park on the roof (fun as any). Due to the month we visited, the men's side was the... More

I guess you get what you pay for (price was discounted for the summer at 1,000 yen), but Spa World was not my cup of tea. I came on a Saturday afternoon looking for a time of relaxation and rejuvenation; I left very disappointed. First of all, there were so many small children in the onsen/bath section that at times,...

I love this place, especially with its now reduced pricing. So fun and relaxing, though it was quite crowded on a Saturday afternoon.

My hubby and I went there on our last day in Osaka and we absolutely loved it! We went on a Monday and it wasn't busy at all. It was filled with Japanese people and only a handful of foreigners. We only spent an hour at the Onsen (women and men's Onsen area are separate) so I'm only recommending the... More
