The best massage and spas in Seoul
Here's our picks on some of the best massage, spa and wellness centers in the city!
Spa 1899 has an origin unlike all other spa treatments here in Seoul. Korea Ginseng Corporation or KGC started its red ginseng business in 1899 within the royal palace of the Korean Empire. Now called Cheong-kwan-Jang, the company has maintained their top position in the ginseng health supplement industry because of meticulous quality. The company is very proud of their products and this trust and sincerity has been blended into their treatments and care at Spa G, guaranteeing you an experience you have not yet come across. One such unheard of treatment is the signature Spa G treatment. We dont know the details but it is a 300min ordeal where your body will be covered in special Ginseng concentrate from top to bottom with their Full Body Package Program of pure relaxation. They also have simpler treatments such as the red ginseng hydro spa package for example.

Dragon Hill Spa
Dragon Hill Spa is without a doubt the most easily accessible Korean style massage and spa in Seoul. It is right next to Yongsan Station, one of the biggest transport hubs in the city. Koreans call these types of Spas for Jjimjilbang and there are hundreds scattered around Seoul. But most of them are hard to find with the bare necessities only. Dragon Hill Spa is a 6 floor multi spa complex. They have several different saunas, massage offerings, outdoor swimming pool, huge arcade for kids, restaurant and a large common area where people watch tv, play games and just hang out. This is a unique experience. You should try going to a Jjimjilbang at least once in your life. Dragon Hill is definetely recommendable. We go there ourselves when we have friends visiting Seoul.
