It was slightly above good but not the best.
Mar 2021
My boyfriend and I came here for his birthday and had a couples swedish massage. Let me say that I loved the entire process of how they have it setup here. Its so clean and absolutely relaxing. I felt very comfortable walking around with no shoes on. Loved how friendly the staff was. I was torn between giving it 3 or 4 stars and I will explain why. First I wanted two swedish massages but I felt like I got a deep tissue massage instead and I have had quite a few of swedish and deep tissue massages in the past. I would have preferred if she had asked if I had a problem areas which she didn't. I felt she was way more rougher than is typical for swedish. She didn't rub my head or massage it. She actually scratched my hair as if I was getting a wash. It was very different. I didn't leave there as happy as I wanted to be considering how badly I needed a massage. I would come back here but probably wouldn't do a massage again.

Ok the second reason why I gave it three stars was that I had a gift card that my boss gave me and they said they don't take them. When I originally setup my appointment she saw I had a gift card but told me payment doesn't happen until I come in for my appointment and you pay when you check out. I should have reconfirmed that but I also feel slightly like I was made to believe they accepted them. Why wouldn't you since its as good as cash. In any case I paid the full price and now I still have $100 for another massage somewhere else.

Oh and this place is right down the street from my house so slightly disappointing.

Discounts Aimed at Koreans only
Mar 2021 • Solo
There is a 10% discount on spa services offered In the locker Room. You must text body scrub to island spa. After trying to download AQR code and going to the front desk, It appears I have to download an app. Kakao talk Is what the app is called. Or at least I think. It is a Korean app. That is OK. When you go to install it, it will not allow you to install if you do not allow access to all of your contacts. Those who have this app have already done so. Even the front desk admitted that it is used mostly by Koreans. Even the front desk admitted that it is used mostly by Koreans.I said I can not give business contacts and others to an app. I even joked that you just gave your mother phone number come up when you download this app.

I feel this is possibly unintentional but a bit discriminatory towards people who are not Korean. There is another factor that people who are a little bit older are less likely to want to give away the contacts. I think this is a bit extreme to get 10% off. At most businesses you just text a number and the body scrub. They text back the coupon. I feel this is possibly unintentional but a bit discriminatory towards people who are not Korean.

There waas only a manager there. He said he couldn't do anything. I said I am sure other people or even the owner can give a body scrub for free If they wanted to. I am just looking for a simple 10% off. Give me a break!

IJust don't think it's right. If you think I am wrong, please leave a comment.

I loved island Spa the 1st time I came. It is still very nice and Covid friendly

Amazing!
Oct 2020 • Solo
Wow just amazing. I first heard about traditional Korean scrub and massage ten years ago. I can’t believe I waited so long. I have been extremely stressed and was actually looking for a sauna to help detox my body so that I can get my mind right ( stress free). Unfortunately saunas are closed but I decided to get an hour scrub and massage. The spa was quiet relaxing and extremely clean. Umi (not sure if spelled correctly) scrubbed me down and massaged me the warm water pored on my body frequently during massage was amazing. The experience was almost euphoric. Hot tubs amazing. I will definitely be back. I feel so refreshed and left smiling and stress free. Just amazing absolutely amazing. I recommend everyone try Island Spa & sauna.

Covid-19 relief
Aug 2020 • Solo
Ouch!! I didn't know how I felt after receiving my 90 minutes Hot Rocks Massage. Only my back was massaged with the hot rocks for a limited amount of time, I should have just gotten a deep tissue massage. I didn't start to feel pain until I woke up from my sleep. However the Spa appeared to have taken the necessary safety precaution to service guests during this pandemic. I could see this being a nice facility, one fully operational. Staff was very attentive and friendly.

Great place always very relaxing. The Jacuzzis are wonderful and truly relieve stress. The food spots are great and the cold room adds a nice touch.

Local Retreat
Dec 2019 • Solo
This place is totally relaxing, totally rejuvenating and clean. Spa services available, but I did not use them. Snacks,meals and beverages are available, too. You can bring your electronics if you plan to stay a while and bounce between the pools (not coed and no electronics allowed) and saunas (coed). I can easily spend five hours here, but always spend much more. There are common areas for lounging, eating, watching t.v. and conversing with others, if you choose. You can bring your own clean socks, if you prefer to not walk around barefoot, as they have you check your shoes at the entrance. You'll be given your own locker for your shoes and another locker inside, for your clothes and other belongings. Also, bring a vessel for water, if you plan to stay hydrated, as they have water coolers throughout the facility. Enjoy your stay!

Nothing Like a Little R and R
Dec 2019
My wife and I enjoy this special time just for ourselves....deep soaks, combo special 1 hour massage and 30 minute foot reflexology, intense dry heat with some cool down time and finish off with some steamed dumplings, chicken wings and bibimbop.The rest of the day we just relax and share thoughts in their comfy lounge areas.
It is a great way to take time out for your relationship and close out the world.

Like a mini-vacation
Nov 2019
A great way to treat yourself. I visited with my boyfriend, and we ended up spending most of the day there.

The spa consists of multiple saunas and hot baths you can soak in. There is a women's bath and a men's bath as well as lockers in which you can store your things. As you will be told by employees, the baths require full nudity. You are not allowed to wear a swimsuit. You are given a uniform at the front desk to wear when you are in the common area, where there are multiple dry saunas as well as a sleeping room.

The facilities are very clean. My boyfriend and I had fun trying out the different saunas-- they're all slightly different temperatures and are made of different materials. I was hoping they would smell slightly different, but I didn't really get that impression. There is also an eating area where you can order Korean food (kind of pricy), as well as an area where you can order bubble tea and other drinks.

I just want to reiterate for anyone interested in going: the baths require you to be naked. You can bring a towel and use it to cover up if you want, but the point of the towel is to dry you off after. If you're really uncomfortable being naked around other people, I would not recommend going. I would also read up on basic Korean spa etiquette-- shower before you enter the actual baths, and please don't put your towel in the bath (I saw one person drop their towel right into one of the baths and ignore it-- I had to go over and fish it out. I also noticed other people wear their towels while soaking their legs, so part of their towels were in the water-- that's also not great). Since the towels are meant to dry you off before you go back into the changing room, getting it wet or damp defeats that purpose.

Anyway, overall, very relaxing visit, and I would definitely go back again.
