This new boutique spa is located near Melrose Avenue’s major retail shopping strip. The location might be unexpected and the space is a little bit small, but inside lays 32 perfectly-designed rooms, indoor and outdoor lounge areas which include a salon that makes you want to curl up with a book in every nook.
MURAD INCLUSIVE HEALTH SPA
Those looking for total treatments can sign up for a 12-week inclusive program such as youth building, which includes a health consultation, fitness assessment and body peel treatments. There are nine treatment rooms that include a hair and nail salon. Think RX for lines and wrinkles with the youth-building facials that include an acupressure massage.
There are Korean saunas—a typical LA experience—and then there’s Wi. The 24-hour mega spa is the Disneyland of Koreatown saunas complete with treatment rooms, five different heated rooms, hot tubs, dry and steam saunas, TV lounge area, restaurant, library and sleeping rooms. Couples and groups can goof around in the co-ed jimjilbang—the dress code is oversized T-shirts and khaki shorts—before heading into separate men and women’s areas where clothing is not allowed and a body scrub is a must do for baby soft skin.
This Aveda concept spa boasts reasonably priced spa services like acupressure and seaweed massage. From the salt room to the “yellow sand” mud room, Crystal offers a particularly enticing range of goods compared to other Koreatown spas. Admission is for the day and the generous hours of operation allow you to indulge at any hour.
CENTURY SPORTS CLUB
For the $20-per-person entrance fee, bring your guy, your lady friend or a gaggle of buddies for communal relaxation in the co-ed jimjilbang, where you can enjoy a nap or a glass of fresh juice. Century also boasts separate men’s and women’s spas, as well as golf and swimming lessons for both kids and adults. Open 24 hours.
This especially cool Koreatown spa and sports facility boasts a various menu of spa treatments, fitness center and golf range. The Aroma Center’s 336,000 square foot space leaves little to be desired, making you spend the entire day, from opening till closing, behind its tiled glass walls.
