About
Dip into Korean bath culture at this multi-story upscale version of the traditional Jimjilbang. Located in one of the world’s largest shopping complexes, you can soak, scrub, and sweat it out at one of the many themed baths and spas. An electronic bracelet keeps track of food, drinks, and services purchased—your ticket is valid for a couple of hours based on how much you spend. Spaland is excellent for solo travelers, couples, and groups of friends, but children under a certain age are not permitted to enter. Visit on weekday mornings for fewer crowds and cheaper entry. – Tripadvisor

    Modern jimjilbang in Busan
    I had a great time at SpaLand, there’s multiple stories full of saunas, foot baths, massage chairs, etc. the outdoor foot baths was something I haven’t experienced at other jimjilbangs. There was also numerous hot spring baths in the men’s section. Start off with the lower temperatures and make your way up. The full body scrub was interesting, definitely a cultural experience. and when I say full body, it really is FULL body… The only downside of this place is that you can only stay for four hours whereas other jimjilbangs I’ve been too, you can stay as long as you want and if they’re open 24/7 you can normally sleep over, which is not the case here… hence the four stars…

    Relaxing end to a long day!
    Fun experience! My teens enjoyed themselves. Males in separate hot bath area which required you to strip all. Amazing array of steam rooms with varying ambience and temperatures. Well organised! Go after 7pm for a 40% discount. Cheaper than buying online passes Closes at 10pm.

    Glad That We Visited
    We called in late night after 7pm. We weren’t expecting to get discounted entry but grateful for it. The time just flew by and we came out wishing that we had longer to try out all the facilities. Could easily fall asleep 💤 in any of the heated quiet rooms. New and modern so don’t go expecting a traditional Korean experience. We would return

    Great place, but needs better customer service
    Had a nice time at spa land. I enjoyed the multiple temperatures of each bath and sauna. It was clean. I feel like a pamphlet with directions would be useful. (Place shoes in locker, the key to locker is your pass, bathe, utilize tubs, etc) we also encountered an issue where my friend stepped on an earring barefoot. We alerted customer service and they disregarded it. Yes, it went into her foot and caused her to bleed.

    A great relaxing experience at Spaland
    You can easily spend a couple of hours at Spaland to relax and to recharge. It is accessible on the ground floor of the Shinsegae department store when you can experience dozens of saunas, heat rooms & last but not the least an ice room. You will need to wear the clothes provided to you. But in the warm batsh side, you will not need them...

    Variety of Hot/Cold Choices
    Spaland is in close proximity to Subway. The locker rooms, "onsen", relaxation areas and snack bar catered to my needs over the 4hr session. There are indoor and outdoor onsens as well as sauna, chilled rooms, Ion rooms & relaxation space & heated mass gathering area. Went on a weekend evening and although was crowded, we enjoyed ourselves.

The place was big and the bath house takes some getting used to. You get two tiny towels and a run down shorts and a t shirt. After your bath, you can roam around in the communal areas. The ramen cafe was interesting but the spa was costing around A$100 for a 60 minutes facial

Spa Land is really a great experience if you want to spend the day relaxing and taking advantage of Korean bath house and sauna culture. Note that children under 7 can’t go in. But really great for friends and couples.

I had a very bad experience upon entering the place after getting the key. Not understanding Korean and the rude lady at the gantry not under English did not help to mitigate the situation. She loudly and rudely told me off impatiently insulting my intelligence saying “ This is key. This is paper “ when trying to tell me to use the key. Obviously she thinks I have no intelligence to differentiate between the two. Damn insulting. I had to counter her rudeness by reporting this incident. I insisted on taking her name 전주현 for the company to counsel her for the ill behaviour.
It would be good for the Spaland to position someone who understands and speaks English there to help people like me.

Beautiful spa with many different saunas. But way too crowded and too little options too cool off. The bathing area (women only / men only) was really nice with many different hot water baths and plenty of showers.

I have been to Spaland twice now and I've enjoyed it even more the second time round. If this is your first time going to a Korean spa, make sure that you are comfortable with same-sex nudity and maybe do some research on Korean "jimjilbangs."

Keep in mind that Spaland is a modern and luxurious version of a Korean spa, and not the commonly found, standard local spa.

Here's what to expect at Spaland:

-Pay the entrance fee of 18 000 KRW.
-Stay for a 4 hours (spa rules).
-Be assigned a locker number and key (can be worn as a bracelet).
-Remove your shoes and stow them in your assigned shoe locker.
-Receive small towels as well as a standard shirt and pair of shorts (red for females, brown for males).
-Go to your respective changing rooms (male or female).
-Get completely undressed and put on your new shirt and shorts.
-Go one of two ways: to the baths or to the saunas (you can always come back to do the other option).

Baths (separated by sex):
-Bring your towel and other showering items (toothbrush, toothpaste, face wash, etc.) - shampoo and bodywash are provided for free. I recommend bringing a waterproof bag to carry all of your showering items - it's just easier. Also, leave one towel in your locker in case your other one is accidentally taken.
-To the left is the sitting shower area. To the right is the standing shower area. Pick one (rinse your seat before sitting if you choose to sit) and wash away. This is a must as you cannot enter the common baths without cleaning yourself.
-Relax in the various hot baths. There are baths of varying temperatures so start with one around 39 degrees Celsius.
-Enjoy the private outdoor bath (women only).
-Enjoy a body scrub or massage. I highly recommend trying at least a 10 minute back scrub - this is a vigorous scrub meant to exfoliate and remove dead skin in a hard to reach place. You must enter the scrubbing room (very professional).
-Enjoy the Finnish saunas.

Sauna (not separated by sex):
-Wear your sauna shirt and shorts (no nudity).
-Bring your phone for photos.
-Enjoy the outdoor foot bath.
-Sweat it out in the various themed dry saunas (careful not to bring your phone in every sauna as some are too hot).
-Have snacks and drinks from the minibar and use your key to put your items on tab.
-Visit the second floor for massage chairs, oxygen rooms, a Western-style spa with massages and facials all for extra fees (use your key to put it all on tab) and more lounging areas.

When you leave, there is a powder area where you can dry your hair and basically get ready to leave.

Pay your tab and leave!

TIP: YouTube "how to make a towel ram head" for the traditional (and now trendy) way to keep sweat out of your face.

Because of the review of other visitors from Tripadvisor to South Korea, we've toughen up and forced ourselves to try an authentic Korean Jjimjilbang ("heated bath") experience. We expected to be embarrassed and too shy to move around, but the atmosphere inside Spaland is different. I've read reviews that locals might stare at you, but we've experience differently. They've assisted us and we very considerate. This experience because one of the most memorable parts of our trip to South Korea, now we are looking forward to it next time.

The Run-down:
1. Pay (around 12,000 KRW/pax around 10 USD/pax). Tip: even lower price if you came in before 8AM.
2. Go up the escalator. Go towards shoe locker area. Locate your number and use it to store your shoes. Take the keys and proceed to Step 3.
3. Enter the gender-segregated locker rooms with the key with the same number that you got.
4. Strip to the level of adam and eve (everything!). Go to the public bath, Get a pink body scrubber. Shower and Scrub. Tip: Shampoo and body wash is available.
5. Explore the different hot pools with labels of the type of water that they use and temperature. Explore the cold showers in between hot pools to cool down. Explore bubble pools and jacuzzi. Ladies will have an extra open-air hot pools surrounded by mountain rocks (Men area does not have this.)
6. Quick shower, dry up using the provided extremely small clean smelling towels. Go back to the lockers, get dress using color-segregated baggy clothing.
7. Proceed to the Common Area. There is an area for different foot baths (outdoor), Finnish Sauna, and various themed Sauna (around 13-14 different kinds). Relax in an ergonomic cushions scattered around, watch TV, go up the entertainment rooms upstairs. Phones and few small things that you left in the locker can be brought inside the common area.
8. If hungry, EAT. This is one of the best places where we ate Patbingsu, a popular shaved ice dessert with red beans. The ice that they use simply melts so softly in your tongue. You can also get slow-cooked hard boiled eggs (taste different). Use only your key to register the payment.
9. After a few hours of relaxation, proceed to the lockers and do the final shower. Freshen up. Dry yourself in the open powder room where they have everything you need to face the outside world - gel, blow dryer, cream, ear buds, etc.
10. Explore Add-ons on the 3rd floor - Massage, Light room, executive rooms, beauty centers.
10. Go the counter and pay for any additional balance.

I assure you that this part of your trip would be the most memorable and something that you'd want to do again.
