My first jjimjilbang experience with Spa Lei was really good. Front desk receptionist was polite and able to communicate in English. took the package - admission, use of all saunas and pools, body scrub, mud treatment, facial, hair wash and oil massage. Love the clean environment and amenities - hair dryer, lotion, toner etc. Enjoyed the body scrub - painful... More

Intimate although it may be smaller than other Jjimjilbang in surrounding Seoul. Doesn't have as many sauna rooms - I think there r only 2 sauna rooms and a kiln. Must try is the head to toe scrub - the ajoomma will also wash, condition and rinse your hair while you restfully lie down on the massage bed. Most relaxing... More

I wanted a place to go relax for the evening. The receptionist is able to speak English which made the experience easier. This is a women's only spa. Upon arrival you need to prepare and will be given a locker key. The locker and spa area is in the basement. I would highly recommend the Korea scrub!!! If you aren't... More

Great place for a Korean traditional spa. Most of the customers are local people. Staffs are nice but don't speak English though.

Spa Lei in Apgujeong was my first ever experience in a Korean-style spa and sauna. Oh my, it was wonderful! I have since been to many other spas in Seoul and other parts of Korea, and I still think that Spa Lei is my favorite. It is the only female-only spa that I have ever been to in Korea (although...

Spa Lei is an all-females sauna bathhouse where the locals frequently visit. It is definitely recommended for budget backpackers, as it only costs 14, 000 KRW for a night with sauna, hot water bath and a nice place to sleep (remember to get a blanket as it can get cold in the winter). It is located about 5 minutes walk... More

Having experienced the old Korean Bath House in Sydney I knew what to expect. We spent a relaxing couple of hours at Spa Lei and it did not disappoint. I found the staff friendly - they don't speak much English (and I have no Korean..) but they were helpful and we managed to work out what's what and get our... More

Your average steam/green tea bath/ cold plunge experience but the price in expensive Shinsadong is worth the price of 12,000won entrance fee. The facilities seem not well take care of and the grouchy scrub lady at the end almost threatened me with some extra money to be left for her. The owner/reception seems distracted and the place shows it. Maybe... More

I'm a fan of the hamam type body scrub because it feels great and results in super soft skin. I went to Spa Lei for a scrub and oil massage today. It was my first experience with a Korean spa. It went like this: shower, 10-15 minute soak in hot pool, lie on massage table for repeated,vigorous scrubbing all over... More
