I first found out about this sauna through this website and thought it would be awesome to go and see what's the rave about. I'm not comfortable about getting naked around ladies (this would've been my 2nd time in a sauna), but I went with an open mind. I came in at around 4 pm (after a Temple Stay), got... More

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,... More

Vesta is a little different from others saunas/jjimjilbang that I know. Is a little bigger, has massage, and seems new. I must say tthat I was a little shy since I was the only western in the area, but well, we need to get used with curious looks. The food there is great (you better try the Ice Tea and... More

Vesta has been the third spa I've been to in Korea and it had all the normal baths and sauna's the other two did as well. The food there was good and so was the chinese massage (despite it being tough to find). The only improve I would have is that you have to have a credit card or cash... More

This is a typical korean sauna, the real local experience. My friends, who are local koreans living in Busan, brought us to this place. It has an amazing view of the beach and the sunset. The best time to head there is during the winter in the evening while catching the sunset.

There are only 2 hot rooms and 1 cold room. I didn't go into the baths because I didn't have a lot of time so I can't comment there. The view is great though, just wish you could see the view from one of the small rooms they have that are ACTUALLY the sauna. Didn't go to the fitness part... More

This is a typical Korean sauna, so you have male/female baths (Nano water is provided) and mixed sexes saunas with rocks, different temperatures, food court and the opportunity to simply stretch out and sleep (with your arms wrapped around your partner if you have one). It's a family, couple and group experience for most Koreans, but the single visitor will... More

Vesta is very close if you life on Dalmaji Hill, They have a spa, on the top of the building. On the ground floor there is a yoga room....with a great teacher. Next to it, there is a fitness area, not to big, but just enough. There is also a personal instuctor to teach you everything you need to know.

Sit in the various hot and cold baths and various steam rooms as you enjoy panaromic views of the ocean. Not for the faint of heart as its shocking to move from the hot to cold pools not to mention all the naked Koreans around you!
