In medieval Britannia, the sauna was where King Arthur and his cronies could take off their armor, mend their jousting wounds, and inspect each other's kneecaps for bits of errant moss. Relax like the Knights of the Round Sauna with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get one admission to King Spa & Sauna (up to a $20 value).
One of the largest Asian sauna complexes in the United States, King Spa & Sauna has nine soothing sauna rooms to calm jangled nerves and quickly dissipate lingering stress. Based on the Korean Jjim-Jil-Bang spa, the rooms have a different cleansing and purifying treatment around every turn, starting with the swirling whirlpools and jasmine aromas in the lavish spa. Activate your body’s energy within the gentle heat and gold-plated walls of the Pyramid Room, or turn up the air-conditioning in the Ice Room. The King’s Fire Sudatorium is a massive sauna comprised of living rock, the therapeutic scent of an oak tree, and toxin-avenging heat.
King Spa & Sauna also has a pool and a movie theater. Because physical rejuvenation can work up an appetite, sauna navigators can take a break by sipping sickhae, an iced rice drink, or gnawing on kal bi—marinated prime beef ribs—at the food court. Every room except the spa at King Spa & Sauna is unisex, so you can make your visit a romantic jaunt with your significant other or simply let your body heal after a run-in with an angry warthog.
No re-entry once you check in.
- "The reason why we're here is so that people can come here and relax," says Kim. "Stress is known to cause certain diseases, but here it's about a healthy lifestyle and we truly believe in the health benefits." – Paige Phelps, Dallas Morning News
- We left there so relaxed that we didn't last 10 minutes once we put our heads on our pillows that night. I will make this a definite return spot every time I'm in Dallas from now on. – Jonathan G., Yelp
King Spa and Sauna
Modeled after traditional Korean spas, King Spa and Sauna houses nine distinct therapy rooms, each of which specializes in treating a different form of ailment or anxiety. The Charcoal Room lines its walls with antibacterial briquettes, which can alleviate conditions such as eczema and undercooked pork sausage. The domed sauna in the Fire Sudatorium encircles entrants in dry-heat and oak-tree aromatherapy, whereas the low temperature of the Ice Room encourages blood flow to the chilled parts of the body. In the heated Base Rock Room, slabs of siraka stone emit infrared rays, increasing circulation and lymphatic drainage during a process that, like most mixed-martial-arts careers, typically doesn't last longer than two 15-minute sessions.
