NYC – relax at K-town sauna

K-town sauna review 

Let me start off by saying I am not a huge fan of massages or facials. But I love going to spas because you get to put on the soft robe and slippers, listen to spa music and everyone is friendly and relaxed. There’s a certain ambiance. But how do you get that sort of ambiance without having to have a treatment done… well you can get a little of that at K-town sauna.

But my one recommendation would be to go solo. And there is no need to bring a bathing suit.

It is in midtown, in Korea town to be exact. You enter the building, take an elevator to the 4th floor and check in at the front desk. It is 2 floors. Top floor: check in area, lockers, showers, steam room and 2 heated tubs. Bottom floor: food area and different saunas. The top floor is segregated by sex, bottom floor is mixed. You get a bracelet which is your “key” to get in to your lockers- you get a small locker for your shoes and a bigger locker to put the rest of your belongings. You are given a towel and a “uniform, ie:  generic shirt and shorts” by an attendant. Whom then tells you that you must shower prior to entering any of the areas, including tubs and saunas. Here is where you will wished you went solo unless you want to see your friend naked. You undress.. put a towel on and PRIOR to entering the area with the shower, tubs, and steam room.. you MUST take off your towel. Once inside it is a free for all.. the showers are separated by a small partition.. you will see your neighbor in the next shower and everyone else… You are not allowed to wear a bathing suit in the area. You use all the facilities there nude. So once you have had your shower and are germ-free.. you put on your uniform and head downstairs. There are different heated saunas which are fun and relaxing. Also a few tables and an area to order food. There are no water activities downstairs so you do not need your bathing suit. It wasn’t crowded when I went so it was fun to experience the different saunas and just relax inside. I didn’t try the food but there were a few people eating and it did look good..

Overall its a fun and interesting experience. Worth checking out. But do keep in mind that if you are interested in going in to the tubs or the steam room… nude only.
