2. Olympic spa– Much like the traditional Japanese bath houses you might’ve seen in movies with numerous hot tubs guests sit and soak in for hours, the Korean spa offers a greater variety for your body to achieve its optimum healing and cleaning experience. Koreans believe in releasing out all the body’s toxins through sweating and have created speciality heated rooms, set at specific temperatures with specific herbs to target different problem areas of the body. For example there are rooms such as a salt or charcoal one. And each sauna room uses far infrared as it can penetrate into the layers of the skin deeper to detox out everything from the fat tissue of the body. After you’ve visited the multiple rooms to detox yourself, don’t miss out on the famous Korean body scrub where you’ll have every inch of dead skin rubbed off your body for an ultimate cleansing experience. To soothe your skin afterwards, ask for a milk bath where warm milk is poured over your body to hydrate and soften your skin. Be sure to check out the many benefits the Korean spa has to offer and visit often! Each visit is very affordable and won’t break your wallet!

Nuch practices the ancient Thai therapeutic procedures to heal and relax each guest and offers a variety of different Thai massages.
