This has to be one of the spas with the prettiest view anywhere. The building is located on a hilltop next to the sea so you can see much of the citiscape, Haeundae beach, the ocean and some coastline and little islands across the bay. Facilities include a fairly authentic (for Korea) Finnish sauna, steambath, chill room at 13 degrees, outside hot bath, very hot bath at 44 degrees, (basic) restaurant, open air roof terrace, karaoke, (chargeable) computer room, TV (only Korean channels) and what proved to be an extremely popular jimjilbang (floor-based dormitory). The price is just 6,000 Won which is way less than it costs to spend the night in a messy crowded backpacker's hostel but incomparably more pleasant. There is one female-only and one male-only dormitories, equipped with mattresses and kept suitably dim, but the vast majority of overnight customers seem to prefer sleeping in the open-plan mixed area in spite of the lack of mattresses and the hard marble flooring. We dealt with this problem by asking for several extra blankets which we piled up until we built an adequately soft surface. My only complaints are 1) the total lack of Wi-Fi (they obviously don't want to discourage customers from spending extra money on desktop computer time any more than it already happens); 2) I felt puzzled by the main mixed area marble floor when they are bound to be aware of Japanese tatami flooring which would be both vastly more comfortable and better-looking; and 3) there are NO really cold showers or really cold baths -the Koreans seem not to believe in them, even straight after a hot sauna. We loved this spa in spite of its few flaws -it's the best place to be in Busan. Remarkably, the few meters altitude gain over sea level combined with the breeze are enough to keep the terraces pleasantly cool even while the city streets below are tropically hot.
