Below are our selections of the finest massage, spa, and wellness centers in the city:
The origins of Spa 1899 are unlike any other spa treatments found here in Seoul. Korea Ginseng Corporation (KGC) began its red ginseng business in 1899 within the royal palace of the Korean Empire. Now known as Cheong-kwan-Jang, the company has maintained its prestigious position in the ginseng health supplement industry due to its meticulous attention to quality. The company takes great pride in their products, and this trust and sincerity are infused into their treatments and care at Spa G, ensuring an experience unlike any other. One such treatment is the signature Spa G treatment, which remains a mystery, but it is a 300-minute ordeal where the entire body is enveloped in a special Ginseng concentrate through their Full Body Package Program, providing pure relaxation. They also offer simpler treatments, such as the red ginseng hydro spa package, for example.

Dragon Hill Spa
Dragon Hill Spa is undoubtedly the most easily accessible Korean-style massage and spa in Seoul. It is conveniently located right next to Yongsan Station, one of the city's major transportation hubs. In Korean, these types of spas are called Jjimjilbang, and there are hundreds scattered throughout Seoul. However, most of them offer only the bare essentials. Dragon Hill Spa stands out as a six-floor multi-spa complex. It features various saunas, massage options, an outdoor swimming pool, a spacious arcade for kids, a restaurant, and a large common area where people can watch TV, play games, and socialize. Visiting a Jjimjilbang is a unique experience that everyone should try at least once in their life, and Dragon Hill Spa comes highly recommended. We personally visit Dragon Hill Spa when we have friends visiting Seoul.
